about

In memory of my grandfather, who is the one who showed me the joy of singing. The day after my grandfather passed, I turned my phone off, shut the studio door, and worked on this to remember him. I remember many a time hearing him sing Teresa Teng's songs. This is my favorite song of hers. I love the lyrics that dance within one of the classiest melodies I've heard. I've attached the translation and the pinyin to this song in the lyrics section. Enjoy learning the Chinese as much as I did.

Any donations made for this song will go to the American Lung Cancer Society at the beginning of every month.

lyrics

你问我爱你有多深
ni wen wo ai ni you duo shen
You ask me how deep my love is for you

我爱你有几分
wo ai ni you ji fen
How much my love adds up to

我的情也真
wo de qing ye zhen
My affection is real

我的爱也真
wo de ai ye zhen
My love is real

月亮代表我的心
yue liang dai biao wo de xin
The moon represents my heart


你问我爱你有多深
ni wen wo ai ni you duo shen
You ask me how deep my love is for you

我爱你有几分
wo ai ni you ji fen
How much my love adds up to

我的情不移
wo de qing bu yi
My affections are unfaltering

我的爱不变
wo de ai bu bian
My love won't change

月亮代表我的心
yue liang dai biao wo de xin
The moon represents my heart

轻轻的一个吻
qing qing de yi ge wen
A light, light kiss

已经打动我的心
yi jin da dong wo de xin
Has opened up my heart

深深的一段情
shen shen de yi duan qing
A moment of deep affection

教我思念到如今
jiao wo si nian dao ru jin
Has taught me what yearning means, even to this day

你问我爱你有多深
ni wen wo ai ni you duo shen
You ask me how deep my love is for you

我爱你有几分
wo ai ni you ji fen
How much my love adds up to

你去想一想
ni qu xiang yi xiang
Go and to think it over

你去看一看
ni qu kan yi kan
Go and take a look

月亮代表我的心
yue liang dai biao wo de xin
The moon represents my heart
