Lyrics Project #11: I'm a Strange Child - Wang Shengnan

Recommended Posts

Indie darling Wang Shengnan takes us into the fantastical inner world of a self-described strange child. The narrator hints that she may be an alien or android, stating that there’s an antenna hidden in her hair and that radar is her best friend. The daydream segment introduces us to other characters such as a boisterous elephant, a jilted prince, and a quizzical monkey.
This is part of the Grand Chinese Lyrics Project.
