Lyrics:

我们又来了
We’re back
非常非常非常fresh
Extremely extremely extremely fresh
大家都举手来
Everyone put up your hands
准备好了吗
Are you ready?

Chorus:
每到黎明听着你的声音来把我叫醒
Every morning I wake up to your voices
对这城市我是怀着十分激动的心情
I’m full of excitement towards this city
北京的灵魂氛围难以用语言来表达
Beijing’s spirit and atmosphere is difficult to describe in words
我会永远记得你请你别把我忘记呀
I will always remember you, please don’t forget me

羊肉串是我老伙伴儿
Yangrouchuanr [lamb skewer/kebab] is my old companion
我只天天跟美女聊天儿
I chat with beautiful women every day
北京烤鸭再来一块儿
Peking Duck, let’s have one more piece
特别喜欢的是北京话儿
I especially like the Beijing dialect/accent

朝阳区数你最牛比
Chaoyang District, you are the most niubi
海淀区我想更懂你
Haidian District, I want to learn more about you
我们之间的大秘密
The big secret between us
我觉得你倍了不起
I think you are so amazing

Chorus

每天在大学上上课
Every day attending class in the university
不管去哪骑自行车
Riding bicycles no matter where I go
燕京啤酒是忒好喝
Yanjing Beer is the best
在这的日子很快乐
My life here is very happy

在后海我玩得很high
At Houhai, I have a lot of fun
在工体我们都在fly
At the Beijing Workers Stadium we are all flying
靓妹认为我非常帅
Pretty girls think I am extremely handsome
我真是舍不得离开
I really can’t bear to leave

Chorus

一二三环不管什么地方
First, second, third ring, no matter where you are
一块唱这首歌 (大省点儿)
Let’s all sing this song (Louder)
四五六环不管什么地方
Fourth, fifth, sixth ring, no matter where you are
一块唱这着歌 (我听不见)
Let’s all sing this song
x2

网易北京市网友:

Hehe, I’d like to see, what would fenqing say if a Chinese person were to wave around another country’s flag?

网易山东省济南市网友:

With food, drink, and girls but without having to worry about housing prices, stock prices, or food prices, of course they’d be feel things are great.

网易北京市网友:

A good song, much better than those overly sentimental songs coming out of the music industry these days.

网易浙江省湖州市网友:

[Their] Chinese is very good, with a Beijing accent. I must learn from you guys, I too must learn and speak good English!

网易重庆市网友:

Don’t raise the Chinese flag as you please! There’s a difference from your nation/country! We normally only raise it when resisting forced demolitions! Raising this flag doesn’t mean you guys are very Chinese!

网易河北省保定市网友:

I’ve discovered that laowai don’t know where to put their hands.

没缝的蛋:

Is China’s flag something you can just play around with?

bnc9595:

It’s really quite good.

xiangye项晔:

CCTV broadcasted this today, I came online to find the video, it’s not bad, jia you!

琳nana:

[Their] putonghua truly is good, more proper than many Chinese people, haha. The song is also very nice. Support!

abc爱琴海abc:

赞You guys can sing very well, but can you guys not be so handsome? 赞赞

莫须有的叉叉:

Very cute/adorable. The lyrics were very adorable. The tune was very adorable. The young guys were very adorable. Everything was very adorable.

颠堂路13号:

They’re studying music production, right? The MV [music video] and music production were all very good. Listen carefully to the musical elements they used, they were very good, probably made by experts.

portialee1983:

I…I actually understood [what they are saying], hahahaha… Their Chinese pronunciation is very good.

1153513210:

I wish all laowai could speak Chinese! In the future, Chinese will be an international common language/universal language…

What do you think?
