As it now not long until the Chinese Spring Festival, my new vocal music teacher has prepared a new song for me to sing at the annual company party. Although she has been through the song with me twice now, I still do not think that I have fully mastered it yet and recorded it as practice at the weekend.

I have also translated it and tried to sing it in English and hope it will be a little help to you in learning Chinese. :-)


MAIN MEANING OF THE SONG

Your flowers are so vivid,
your fruit is so plentiful and substantial,
your land is so fertile,
your roads are so wide.
Motherland, my motherland,
bless you, my motherland,
I dedicate my wonderful youth to you,
I wish you youth and happiness forever.

Your belief will not change,
your national flag will never fade,
your bitterness and happiness can not be forgotten,
your singing will not be ended.
Motherland, my motherland,
bless you, my motherland,
I would like give my absolute loyalty to you,
I wish you strength and to flourish forever...
