Ai Hai Yo

Lyrics – Transliteration

(Chinese folk song)

Āi hāi yō, āi hāi yō, āi hāi yō hāi yō
Wēnhé tàiyáng zhào dàdì,
Xīnnián yǐjīng dào,
Jiā jiā xìngfú,
Míngnián hǎo shōuchéng

English Translation

Ai hai yo (exclamation of pleasure)
The warm sun shines on earth
The new year has arrived,
May every household be happy
May next year have a good harvest

Mandarin – 哎 嗨 哟

哎嗨哟,哎嗨哟,哎嗨哟嗨哟
温和太阳照大地,
新年已经到,
家家幸福,
明年好收成

  1. I need to have some students perform a Chinese song at an upcoming performance. Did you write the orff arrangement? If so, can you send it to me.
