This a very well-known and popular nursery song in Mandarin. It is one of the planet's greatest children's songs for its simple use of metaphor to make a profound statement on individual beauty.




大象,大象,
你的鼻子怎么那么长?
妈妈说鼻子长
才是漂亮。

Māma shuō bízi cháng
Cái shì piàoliàng.

Why is your nose so long?
Mom says [a] long nose
Is what makes you beautiful.
