Back with another song from the Chopstick Brothers. This time it’s not a slow one, it’s fast and it’s incredibly popular! Little Apple swept across China in a wave of annoying dances and poor quality copies. Have a listen and see what you think, the actual lyrics are not so difficult, it’s the speed that makes it a little tricky.

Key Words

种 – This can have a couple of different tones. If used 4th tone then it means ‘to plant’ but the third tone can mean ‘seeds’. The first line of the song goes 我种下一颗种子,meaning I planted a seed. 颗 is a measure word for seeds/trees and satellites among other things.

长出 – To sprout. For example, 这颗葡萄长出了许多新条 means this grapevine has grown a lot of new branches.

天边 – Horizon. Literally 天 meaning sky and 边 meaning edge or border.

点亮 – To illuminate/ to turn on lights or to light. 你点亮我的生命 means you brighten up my life!

Music Video

This is not the official music video as that has an annoying intro which takes a long time to start. This video allow you to press play and focus upon the lyrics below.

 

小苹果 Song Lyrics

(Hover over the Chinese for pinyin)

我种下一颗种子 终于长出了果实
今天是个伟大日子
摘下星星送给你 拽下月亮送给你
让太阳每天为你升起
变成蜡烛燃烧自己 只为照亮你
把我一切都献给你 只要你欢喜
你让我每个明天都 变得有意义
生命虽短爱你永远 不离不弃

你是我的小呀小苹果儿
怎么爱你都不嫌多
红红的小脸儿温暖我的心窝
点亮我生命的火 火火火火火
你是我的小呀小苹果儿
就像天边最美的云朵
春天又来到了花儿开满山坡
种下希望就会收获

从不觉得你讨厌 你的一切都喜欢
有你的每天都新鲜
有你阳光更灿烂 有你黑夜不黑暗
你是白云我是蓝天
春天和你漫步在盛开的 花丛间
夏天夜晚陪你一起看 星星眨眼
秋天黄昏与你徜徉在 金色麦田
冬天雪花飞舞有你 更加温暖

你是我的小呀小苹果儿
怎么爱你都不嫌多
红红的小脸儿温暖我的心窝
点亮我生命的火 火火火火火
你是我的小呀小苹果儿
就像天边最美的云朵
春天又来到了花儿开满山坡
种下希望就会收获

你是我的小呀小苹果儿
怎么爱你都不嫌多
红红的小脸儿温暖我的心窝
点亮我生命的火 火火火火火
你是我的小呀小苹果儿
就像天边最美的云朵
春天又来到了花儿开满山坡
种下希望就会收获
