Chinese Children’s Song: Orchid Grass 蘭花草

蘭花草 Lanhuacao

A very sweet song about a little orchid plant and the longing and care that the gardener puts into it.

蘭花草
我從山中來 帶著蘭花草
種在小園中 希望花開早
一日看三回 看得花時過
蘭草卻依然 苞也無一個

眼見秋天到 移蘭入暖房
朝朝頻顧惜 夜夜不能忘
但願花開早 能將宿願償
滿庭花簇簇 開得許多香

Orchid Grass
I came from the hills
Bringing an orchid grass
I plant it in the small garden
I hope the flower will bloom soon
I look at it three times a day
Until the season’s past
The orchid plant is still the same
There’s not a single bud

I see the autumn’s here
I move the plant to a warm room
Each day I watch with longing and care
Each night I do not forget my orchid
How I wish it would blossom in spring
Fulfilling my dreams
Filling our home with flowers and sweet scents

蘭花草 – 胡適. This video shows many types of 蘭花草 Orchids.

劉文正has a beautiful voice! The video is a little silly though!

鞍安An An’s soothing, karaoke version. Simplified Chinese lyrics and hanyu pinyin alongside. Great for singing along and practicing your mandarin!
