Another Beautiful Teresa Teng 鄧麗君 song..........................


One of the reason why Teresa Teng 鄧麗君 was such a huge superstar was her ability to transmit emotions in her songs no matter what language she was singing in.
Here again is one of my all time favorite song call 想把情人留 I want my lover to stay... from her album " Love Is Like A Song" (愛像一首歌) released in 1981.
This has got to be one of Teresa's best, she did an absolutely good job with this song, so much emotion, so much beauty.........



想把情人留



And if you thought this Chinese version was beautiful, check out the Japanese version of the same song by Teresa also......



I fell in love with this song the first time i heard it and it has been one of my favorite since.

The lyrics goes something like this......

門前的小河不斷地流
The little river outside my front door runs continuously.

小河水悠悠 是否你也爲情煩惱 日夜說不休
Little running river, are you also burdened by sentiments and worries, non-stop day and night also?

雖然我願爲你分些憂 卻不知誰來替我解心愁
Although I can give you some advice and i am willing to share some of your worries, I don't know who can help me resolve mine.

但願你心知我心 想把情人留
I hope you know that my heart wants my Lover to stay.

小河不管我爲何愁 依然說不休
The little river runs endlessly, regardless if i worry or not.it does not care for whom I worry.

只有我自己望夕陽 落向青山後
Leaving me alone to watch the sunset descending behind the mountain.

雖然我願爲你分些憂 卻不知誰來替我解心愁
Although I can give you some advice and i am willing to share some of your worries, I don't know who can help me resolve mine.

但願你心知我心 想把情人留
I hope you know that my heart wants my Lover to stay.

門前的小河不斷地流
The little river outside runs endlessly.

小河水悠悠 你說你也爲了情煩惱 对我說不休
Little running river, you say you are also burdened by sentiment, running non-stop day and night.

雖然我願爲你分些憂 卻不知誰來替我解心愁
Although I can give you some advice and i am willing to share some of your worries, I don't know who can help me resolve mine.

但願你心知我心 想把情人留
I hope you know that my heart wants my Lover to stay.
