Lyrics

Shanghai Tan / Shanghai Beach
Themesong from “The Bund”

Cantonese lyrics

Long ban long lau
Maan lei tou tou gong seoi wing bat jau
Tou zeon liu sai gaan si
Wan zok tou tou jat pin ciu lau

Si hei si sau
long lei fan bat cing fun siu bei jau
Seng gung sat baai
long lei hon bat ceot jan mei jau

Moi nei han nei man gwan zi fau
Ci daai gong jat faat bat sau
Zyun cin waan zyun cin taan
Jik mei peng fuk ci zung zaang dau

Jau jau hei jau jau sau
Zau syun fan bat ceng fun siu bei jau
Jing jyun faan baak cin long
Zoi ngo sam zung hei fuk gau

Moi nei han nei man gwan zi fau
Ci daai gong jat faat bat sau
Zyun cin waan zyun cin taan
Jik mei peng fuk ci zung zaang dau

Jau jau hei jau jau sau
Zau syun fan bat ceng fun siu bei jau
Jing jyun faan baak cin long
Zoi ngo sam zung hei fuk gau
Jing jyun faan baak cin long
Zoi ngo sam zung hei fuk gau

English Translation

Rushing waves, flowing waves
Thousand miles of the torrential river flows ceaselessly forever
Washed away the worldly affairs
Torrential mixing of the tidal currents
Is it happiness? Is it sorrow?

Hard to differentiate between happiness and sorrow in the waves
Success losing
Hard to see in the waves
Love you, hate you
Asked you if you know

Like a giant river, once distributed will not be withdrawn
Passed by in many bays
Passed by many beaches
Still not yet to suppress these struggles
Both happiness and sorrow

Unable to differentiate between them
Still wishing to overcome these waves
My heart has enough of these rises and falls
Still wishing to overcome these waves
My heart has enough of these rises and falls

The Temple of Chow

  2. Hi, thx for commenting.

    I like the song very much, too. There are days when I can listen to this song many many times in a row. The lyrics and the translation are getting a little rest in one of my drawers. They will surely show up someday.

  3. A classic. Thank you for publishing this.

  4. You are welcome, Chasilbow. I could -at last- find the lyrics. Happy time of your day!

    Was this song sung at Beijing Olympic??
    I didn’t watch it completely….

  6. Hi Ann,

    it’s great you showed up : I could discover that a link was no longer working on the post. No, I am not sure that the song was sung at Beijing Olympic. It is the song to a TV series which is called Shanghai Grand. A series with many bad guys doing millions of awful things. I never had the opportunity to watch the TV series. Nevertheless I love the song. Francis Yip is a Lady.

    Thank you for visiting.
