Frogs Don't Drink Water (青蛙不吃水)

This is a charming song in Mandarin. Frogs do not drink water, or so it asserts!


一只青蛙一张嘴
两只眼睛四条腿
乒乓乒乓跳下水
青蛙不吃水, 太平年
青蛙不吃水, 太平年
青蛙向水里跳
洗个痛快的澡


Yī zhǐ qīngwā yī zhāngzuǐ
liǎng zhī yǎnjīng sìtiáo tuǐ
pīngpāng pīngpāng tiào xiàshuǐ
qīngwā bù chīshuǐ, tàipíng nián
qīngwā bù chīshuǐ, tàipíng nián
qīngwā xiàng shuǐ lǐ tiào
xǐ gè tòngkuài de zǎo

English translation:
One frog, one mouth
Two eyes, four legs,
Ping-pong, ping-pong, jump into the water,
A frog doesn't drink water, [it will be] a peaceful year
A frog doesn't drink water, [it will be] a peaceful year
Frog, jump into the water,
Have a jolly bath.
