Use the translated English lyrics below to find the title and artist of the song. Bonus points for providing a video or audio link. A short audio clip is provided as an additional hint, should you need it.
 



Buskers, go from east to west
In summer on pedestrian bridges, in winter on the subway
Playing a chord, singing popular songs
No one applauds, spare change falls on the ground
Rolls toward legs, bend over to pick up
Every day trying to get three meals, no time to worry about dignity
Use pocket money to buy flatbread, bread is like the moon over my hometown
Hold it with both hands, swallow it whole
Cold day, fingers frozen, cover mouth and blow hot air (on hands)
Don't dare to drink much water, fear the call of nature
Life is like a delicate instrument string, busking is like begging
Be inside the stream of people, can't worry about anything other than the hunger in the stomach
Five grains enter the latrine, all that remains is the hunger in the stomach

Chinese lyrics

卖唱的人,从东走到西
夏天天桥上,冬天地铁里
弹着一个和弦,唱着流行的歌曲
没有人鼓掌,零钱落在地
滑在双脚边,弯腰拾起
日图有三餐,无暇顾尊严
零钱买大饼,饼似家乡月
捧了在手中,囫囵咽下去
天寒手指冻,捂嘴哈热气
不敢多喝水,生怕有内急
命如细琴弦,卖唱如行乞
同在人流中,只为腹中饥
五谷入茅厕,只剩腹中饥
