Watch Beijing opera, play on a swing, kick a stone by the side of the road
Hallway door’s lantern, outdoor market’s soup noodles
Newly-bought clothes, pocket money from lunar new year
Small cloth shoes, flower print handkerchief
Uncle that makes sugar people and celestial beings from the stories
I put a handkerchief over my face, count to three
You quickly hide behind the old tree

Elder sister, l saw you once last year
You’re laughing, laughing with others and start to talk about the past
Alleys from childhood were long and short
Without realizing it, twenty years have passed

You said you remembered my pigtails from when I was six
Laughing at my craziness, say that I should become a performer
Now, faraway from home, when I come across a street performer girl
Can’t keep myself from giving a few pennies more

Small cloth shoes, flower print handkerchief
Uncle that makes sugar people and celestial beings from the stories
I put a handkerchief over my face, count to three
You quickly hide behind the old tree

Elder sister, l saw you once last year
You’re laughing, laughing with others and start to talk about the past
Alleys from childhood were long and short
Without realizing it, twenty years have passed

You said you remembered my pigtails from when I was six
Laughing at my craziness, say that I should become a performer
Now, faraway from home, when I come across a street performer girl
Can’t keep myself from giving a few pennies more

Elder sister, l saw you once last year
You’re talking, talking with others and start flipping through a photo album
Mottled smudges, bits and pieces
How did twenty years pass without us realizing it?

I’ve already cut off my pigtails
Your looks have a bit more weariness to them
Now, faraway from home, when I come across a girl who loves laughing
Still can’t stop myself, your face pops into my mind

Elder sister, I’ve also been fondly remembering
Childhood fruits were so fragrant and sweet
That year when you were married off, I suddenly grew up
Every day hoping, when will I receive your letter?

Chinese lyrics

看大戏 ,荡秋千,踢个石子儿在小路边
廊门的灯笼,集市的汤面
新买的衣裳,压岁的零钱
小布鞋,花手绢
吹糖人儿的老伯和故事里的神仙
我蒙上帕子数到三声
你快快躲到老树的后面

姐姐,去年见你一面
你与人笑着笑着就说起从前
儿时的巷子里深深浅浅
竟不知不觉就过了二十年

你说记得我六岁的羊角辫
说以后当个戏子你笑我疯癫
如今在远方遇到卖艺的姑娘
却忍不住 多给几文钱

小布鞋,花手绢
吹糖人儿的老伯和故事里的神仙
我蒙上帕子数到三声
你快快躲到老树的后面

姐姐,去年见你一面
你与人笑着笑着就说起从前
儿时的巷子里深深浅浅
竟不知不觉就过了二十年

你说记得我六岁的羊角辫
说以后当个戏子你笑我疯癫
如今在远方遇到卖艺的姑娘
却忍不住 多给几文钱

姐姐,去年见你一面
你与人说着说着就翻出了相片
斑驳的污渍啊星星点点
怎不知不觉就过了二十年

我已剪掉我六岁的羊角辫
而你的样子里面也多了些疲倦
如今在远方遇到爱笑的姑娘
仍忍不住 想起你的脸

姐姐,我也一阵阵得想念
幼年时瓜果香甜
我突然懂事在你出嫁的那年
日日盼啊 何时寄来你的信件
