I wish you prosperity

I wish you a brilliant life

Best things please come

Bad things please go away

Oh, many gifts people don't mind


I wish all girls around the world

Each marry a good boy

And the young couple always stick together

I wish all children around the world

Smartness exceeding scholars

Intelligence filling your brains


I wish all respectable grannies

Thirty-six laps around the track

No puffing and no change of face

I wish my third uncle's business

Fame around the world

Weath flowing in and living in a mansion.


Swaggering

A happy sky replacing your disasters

Wishing you prosperity

Shout it loud and bold

Wishing you prosperity


I wish you prosperity...


Ye yi ye yi

hihihi haho……


I wish everybody a permanent smile

Wholeheartedly letting love flow

Tomorrow will be more awesome

I wish the world's frustrations

Run away faster than Bolt

Every year producing talented people


Swaggering...


I wish you prosperity...

Wishes of prosperity!

Bainian 拜年 (Pay New Year Respects)


Bainian (/bye-nyen/) is a traditional Northern Chinese song about paying respects to one's elders at Chinese New Year, i.e. making a New Year visit. It is performed in this recording with traditional Chinese instruments.

正月里来是新年儿呀啊

百姓们都喜欢那儿呀啊

买了几个高尚陶儿呀啊

少宝的大褂品那儿呀啊

家家门口啦啊

都贴了新对联那儿


正月里来是新年儿呀啊

大年初一头一天呀啊

家家团圆会呀啊

少的给老的拜年呀啊

男女和老少啦

都把那心意换呀啊

男女和老少呀

都把那心意换

With the first lunar month comes New Year

Everyone loves it

Bought some stylish pottery

The youngster's big coat

Every household's door

Has new door couplets


With the first lunar month comes New Year

New Year's first day

Every family gets together

The young give the old a New Year call

Men and women, young and old

All pay their respects

Yeah, men and women, young and old

All pay their respects
