Sweet Chinese Lullabye...

Similar to “Hush Little Baby” in the English-speaking world, this is a Chinese lullabye. It's a very sweet and soothing song, click here to listen.

Mama Hao (Mandarin)
Shi shang zhi you mama hao
You ma de hai zi xiang ge bao.
Tou jin mama de huai bao
Xin fu xiang bu liao.

Shi shang zhi you mama hao
Mei ma de hai zi xiang ge cao
Li kai mama de huai bao
Xin fu na li zhao.

English translation
Only Mama is the best in all the world
With a mama, you have the most valued treasure.
Jump into mama’s heart and
You have endless happiness.

Only Mama is the best in all the world
Without a mama you are like a piece of grass,
Away from mama's heart,
Where will you find happiness?

I love this lullabye. Can't wait to play it for Paige when she arrives next spring!

Thanks for having the file linked. I want to mention it in my Musical Mandarin blog as someone was looking for a song for their baby naming ceremony.
