Chinese New Year CD for 葉老師/ Ms. Grace Yeh’s 1st Grade Class

Hello fellow classmates in 葉利玲老師 (Ms. Grace Yeh)’s ICS First Grade class,

I compiled a “Chinese New Year Songs for Children” CD WITH LOVE as a gift for you!

My wish is that you listen to it everyday (and every waking moment! Copy one and listen to it in the house and 1 to listen to it while driving!) so you will be familiar with the songs “賀新年 / 拜年 Hexinnian / Bainian”. I have included many popular songs, mostly sung by children on the CD. I have intentionally included multiple versions of “賀新年 / 拜年 Hexinnian / Bainian” in the CD. This way, as you listen to the whole CD, naturally, you will learn the 2 songs mentioned. If you scroll down on this page, you can print out the lyrics, translations so you can belt out the song aloud during your daily routines! Also, you can view videos and lyrics of the songs and sing along with them! Fun fun fun way to learn Chinese!

  • Our children will be performing Song number 1 “賀新年 / 拜年 Hexinnian / Bainian” for our Chinese New Year Performance.
  • Venue: the world-reknown Irvine Barclay Theatre 
  • Date: January 28, 2011.
  • Day: Saturday
  • Performance Time: 7pm
  • Please note that the performance will be at 7 pm and a rehearsal will be in the afternoon at 1 or 2pm on 1/28.
  • Sign up your child on the Class Shutterfly link. Do consider signing up and joining us, this will be a good way for our kiddos to have a happy memory of their chinese learning experience. Also, the children will have a good opportunity to bond with each other in the lifelong journey of learning Mandarin Chinese language and Culture. Scroll to bottom to check out the costumes and props!

Please check back as I update this page. Leave me a comment in the box below, if you have a comment. Thank you!

 

Wishing our kiddos fun and enthusiasm in their Chinese learning journey!

With love,

Jzin

[I am sorry, there are 2 or so commercials stucked to the end of the last song on the CD. Please pardon me, I have just learned how to search for songs, convert youtube files to mp3 and burn into discs. I do not know yet how to crop mp3 files! So, there you go, when you get to the final bits of the CD, you can skip past the grocery store and wine commercials that I do not know how to edit out.]

賀新年 • 拜年
(說)
嘿! 嘿! 嘿! 賀新年
嘿! 嘿! 嘿! 過個太平年
賀新年 祝新年 新年啊 年連年
爆竹聲聲催人想幼年
賀新年 祝新年 新年啊 年連年
歲月悠悠光陰如箭
回首往事如煙痛苦心酸
期望從今萬事如願
賀新年 祝新年 新年啊 年連年
願大家都過個太平年 ….. 2x
(說)
年初一頭一天 家家戶戶又要過新年
穿大街 走小巷 霹靂拍啦 炮竹響連天
正月初一頭一天 家家戶戶過新年
大街小巷懸燈彩 炮竹響連天
七個隆咚鏘咚鏘 炮竹響連天
七個隆咚鏘咚鏘 炮竹響連天
小妹過年好歡喜 換上新鞋穿新衣
從頭到腳打扮好 上街去拜年
七個隆咚鏘咚鏘 上街去拜年
七個隆咚鏘咚鏘 上街去拜年
(說)
過新年來拜年 小姐小姐 汽車在那邊
穿過街 走過巷 大家一起拜年 去拜年
(男) 聽說小姐去拜年 我有汽車在那邊
只要開說ㄧ聲 去那兒也不難
七個隆咚鏘咚鏘 去那兒也不難七個隆咚鏘咚鏘 去那兒也不難
(合) 相逢何必曾相識 萍水相逢有姻緣
一見鍾情像閃電 一起去拜年
七個隆咚鏘咚鏘 一起去拜年
七個隆咚鏘咚鏘 一起去拜年

    Thanks for the list. Exactly what I need for my kids. It’s hard for the kids to learn these traditional songs nowadays, and I’m trying my best to get them exposed.

    Hi Ken,

    I find it easy to expose the children to the chinese songs, if you burn the songs onto a CD for your car rides. You can actually convert youtube songs into mp3 files for free online, then download these 12 songs into a CD. I made a ton of these songs to pass out the friends last year. Good job for getting chinese culture to your kiddos!

    cheers!
