南海姑娘

South Sea Girl (Nan2 hai3 gu niang)

 

A classic and very endearing Teresa Teng song.

 

   

   

 

椰风挑动银浪                        (tiao3 dong4 = arouse)

夕阳躲云偷看                        (tou kan4 = peep)

看见金色的沙滩                (sha tan = beech)

独坐一位美丽的姑娘

眼睛星样灿烂                        (can4 lan4 = glitter)

眉似新月弯弯

穿着一件红色的纱笼            (sha long2 = sarong)

红得象她嘴上的槟榔            (bing lang = betel nut)

她在轻叹

叹那无情郎

想到泪汪汪

湿了红色纱笼白衣裳            (shi = wet ; yi shang = clothes)

哎呀南海姑娘

何必太过悲伤

年纪轻轻只十六吧

旧梦失去有新侣做伴            (zuo4 ban4 = keep company)
