Music Video: Two Tigers - Liǎng zhī lǎo hǔ - 兩隻老虎

"Two Tigers" is a classic Chinese song for children. This is a familiar tune and is fun to sing with the little ones. Don't forget to add movement and action along with the lyrics to make it an action-filled play-learning experience!

I've put the lyrics below in Pinyin, traditional Chinese and simplified Chinese with the English translation on top.

Two tigers two tigers
Liǎng zhī lǎo hǔ Liǎng zhī lǎo hǔ
兩 隻 老 虎 兩 隻 老 虎
两 只 老 虎 两 只 老 虎

Running fast running fast
Pǎo de kuài pǎo de kuài
跑 的 快 跑 的 快
跑 的 快 跑 的 快

One does not have eyes
Yī zhī méi yǒu yǎn jīng
一 隻 沒 有 眼 睛
一 只 没 有 眼 睛

One does not have a tail
Yī zhī méi yǒu wěi ba
一 隻 沒 有 尾 巴
一 只 没 有 尾 巴

How strange how strange
Zhēn qí guài zhēn qí guài
真 奇 怪 真 奇 怪
真 奇 怪 真 奇 怪

(Lyrics above from the Companion Learning Guide for the Miss Panda Chinese audio CD)
