法海
fǎ hǎi
Fahai

你为什么不同意我们的爱
nǐ wèi shén me bù tóng yì wǒ men de ài
Why don’t you assent to our love

你不想让我们幸福吗 自由自在
nǐ bù xiǎng ràng wǒ men xìng fú ma zì yóu zì zài
Don’t you want us to be happy? (And) carefree?

一生难得真诚的爱
yì shēng nán dè zhēn chéng de ài
In one’s lifetime it’s hard to encounter sincere love

你想遵循你的道理
nǐ xiǎng zūn xún nǐ de dào lǐ
You want to stick to your reason

你不愿意听我们说
nǐ bú yuàn yì tīng wǒ men shuō
You are not willing to listen to us explain

CHORUS #1:
法海你不懂爱
fǎ hǎi nǐ bù dǒng ài
Fahai, you don’t understand love

雷峰塔会掉下来
léi fēng tǎ huì diào xià lái
Leifeng Pagoda will fall off

法海你不懂爱
fǎ hǎi nǐ bù dǒng ài
Fahai, you don’t understand love

雷峰塔会掉下来
léi fēng tǎ huì diào xià lái
Leifeng Pagoda will fall off

CHORUS #2:
我们在一起
wǒ men zài yì qǐ
We are together

永远不分离
yǒng yuǎn bù fēn lí
(We) will never be apart

法海你真的不懂爱
fǎ hǎi nǐ zhēn de bù dǒng ài
Fahai, you really don’t understand love

你说 我们不能一起吧
nǐ shuō wǒ men bù néng yì qǐ ba
You said, we must not be together

但你不了解我
dàn nǐ bù liǎo jiě wǒ
But you don’t know me

一千年 我不停的改变
yì qiān nián wǒ bù tíng de gǎi biàn
Throughout a thousand years, I keep changing myself

想努力地做好人
xiǎng nǔ lì dǐ zuò hǎo rén
trying hard to be a good person

我在人间找到我的爱
wǒ zài rén jiān zhǎo dào wǒ de ài
I found my love in the human world

许仙 许仙 我的爱人
xǔ xiān xǔ xiān wǒ de ài rén
Xu Xian, Xu Xian, my love

CHORUS #1

CHORUS #2

为什么
wèi shén me
Why

为什么爱情总是那么难
wèi shén me ài qíng zǒng shì nà me nán
Why is love always so difficult (to obtain)?

请你放我给我自由
qǐng nǐ fàng wǒ gěi wǒ zì yóu
Please set me free, give me freedom

不要分手
bú yào fēn shǒu
(We) don’t want breakup

请让我们在一起
qǐng ràng wǒ men zài yì qǐ
Please let us be together

CHORUS #1

CHORUS #2

    1. Both the MV and the couple’s debut of this song on Hunan Satellite TV gave me goose bumps, but later I read Gong Linna’s blog post about this song and began to look at it simply as a funny catchy song based on the famous legend of the white snake.
