木棉道 Lyrics and English Translation

木棉道, a Taiwanese folk song, is composed of simple lyrics. The flowers of the kapok tree, like those found in Taiwan, blossom in April. In full bloom, the whole tree looks flaming red. Travelling along an avenue lined with kapok trees makes one feel romantic.

Lyrics:

木棉道

红红的花  开满了木棉道
hong hong de hua   kai man liao mu mian dao
长长的街  好像在燃烧
chang chang de jie   hao xiang zai ran shao
沈沈的夜  徘徊在木棉道
shen shen de ye   pai huai zai mu mian dao
轻轻的风  吹过了树梢
qing qing de feng   chui guo liao shu shao

木棉道  我怎能忘了
mu mian dao   wo zen neng wang liao
那是去年夏天的高潮

na shi qu nian xia tian de gao chao
木棉道  我怎能忘了
mu mian dao   wo zen neng wang liao
那是梦里难忘的波涛
na shi meng li nan wang de bo tao

啊….爱情就像木棉道
a ai qing jiu xiang mu mian dao
季节过去就谢了
ji jie guo qu jiu xie liao
爱情就像那木棉道
ai qing jiu xiang na mu mian dao
蝉声绵绵断不了

chan sheng mian mian duan bu liao
 

English Translation:
Kapok Tree Road (木棉道)

Red flowers blossoming all over kapok tree road
It's almost like the long avenue is glowing in red
In the darkness of the night, I wander along kapok tree road
The wind gently blows over the tree tops

How can I forget kapok Road
It was the climax of last summer
How can I forget kapok Road
It was an unforgettable dream

Ah…Love is like the kapok tree road
Grateful for the past season
Love is like the kapok tree road
The cicadas fly continuously
