This is part 1 of the lyrics to “Where Did All The Time Go”?
mén qián lǎo shù cháng xīn yá
yuàn lǐ kū mù yòu kāi huā
bàn shēng cún le hǎo duō huà
cáng jìn liǎo mǎn tóu bái fā
New sprouts were growing on the old tree in front of the house,
In the courtyard, the withered tree was beginning to bloom again.
During this half lifetime, a lot of words were stored,
Hidden in this head of white.
jì yì zhōng dí xiǎo jiǎo yā
ròu dū dū de xiǎo zuǐ bā
yī shēng bǎ ài jiāo gěi tā
zhī wéi nà yī shēng bà mā
The small little child in our memories,
With that chubby little mouth.
We gave our entire lifetime of love to him,
Solely for that cry of ‘mom, dad.’
