A slow Chinese love song for those people who like their music deep and emotional. Fairly simple structure throughout and some great words to learn. Be warned, singing this song in KTV is a lot harder than it looks as you really do need a good singing voice to manage it. In terms of reading, however, this is one of the easier songs out there.

Key Words

月亮代表我的心 Song Lyrics

(Hover over the Chinese for pinyin)

你问我爱你有多深,我爱你有几分。
我的情也真,我的爱也真,月亮代表我的心。
你问我爱你有多深,我爱你有几分。
我的情不移,我的爱不变,月亮代表我的心。

轻轻的一个吻,已经打动我的心。
深深的一段情,叫我思念到如今。

你问我爱你有多深,我爱你有几分。
你去想一想,你去看一看,月亮代表我的心。

轻轻的一个吻,已经打动我的心。
深深的一段情,叫我思念到如今。

你问我爱你有多深,我爱你有几分。
你去想一想,你去看一看,月亮代表我的心。

你去想一想,你去看一看,月亮代表我的心。
