I raise my eyes and see the outline of Thousand Buddha Mountain
I close my eyes—there’s Lake Daming and the city moat
Spurting Spring is gushing by my ear
But I’m not sure
Jinan
What is it actually like?
What is it really like?

Cheongsam-wearing girls, where are you?
Oldsters performing clapper talk, where are you?
Annoying little kids all grew up
The local accent of the young’uns, is there anyone who remembers it?

Ancient streets and alleys have already been torn down
Republican era train station, I haven't even seen it
For years now, Qingshiban's spring water is nowhere to be found
The beautiful scenery of a weeping willow by every house is already a legend

Jinan, Jinan, where are you?
Jinan, Jinan, I'm too far from home
Jinan, Jinan, I can't go back
Jinan, Jinan, I'm missing you

The Yellow River used to flow through Old Town's west side
East, south, and north, mountains and rivers surround those sides
Sandstorms from Inner Mongolia, they charge straight in
Springwater moistens the city's arteries

Magnificent city walls, all that's left of it is Liberation Pavilion
The neon lights can't illuminate the city moat
Yanxi Temple's sign board is dim and falling apart
Furong Street's restaurants, how many serve Shandong cuisine?

Jinan, Jinan, where are your roots?
Jinan, Jinan, what do you have left?
Jinan, Jinan, do you know
Jinan, Jinan, how much I love you?

I raise my eyes and see the outline of Thousand Buddha Mountain
I close my eyes—there’s Lake Daming and the city moat
Spurting Spring is gushing by my ear
I just want to say to you
Jinan
I miss you
I want to go back home

Chinese lyrics

我抬眼是千佛山的轮廓
我闭眼是大明湖和护城河
趵突泉在我耳畔喷涌着
可我却不清楚
济南
到底是啥样的
它究竟是啥样的

穿旗袍的姑娘你在哪儿呢
说快板儿的大爷你在哪儿呢
膈应人的小么都长大了
半青的乡音有谁还会记得

那古街古巷都已经被拆了
民国的火车站我都未见过
青石板的泉水早已没了着落
户户垂杨的美景已成为传说

济南呐济南呐,你在哪儿呢
济南呐济南呐,我离家太远了
济南呐济南呐,我回不去了
济南呐济南呐,我想你了

古城的大西边儿有黄河流过
东南北那三边儿有山川包围着
内蒙古的风沙,它长驱直入呢
泉水仍滋润着城市的脉络

雄伟的城墙只剩个解放阁
霓虹灯的光照不亮护城河
燕喜堂的牌匾昏暗又没落
芙蓉街的店家,有几个是鲁菜呢

济南呐济南呐,你的根在哪儿呢
济南呐济南呐,你还剩下什么啊
济南呐济南呐,你知道吗
济南呐济南呐,我有多爱你呢

我抬眼是千佛山的轮廓
我闭眼是大明湖和护城河
趵突泉在我耳畔喷涌着
我只想对你说
济南
我想你了
我想回家了
