correction.

Not all Chinese are bad singers.
In fact these ones are good.
I love this song.
Its super catchy.
Plus now I want to go to Beijing.
This is the song welcoming the athletes to the Beijing Olympics.



This is what it means.

Dawning of another morning filled with refreshing air.
The air has changed; but emotion still scents like tea.
My doors are always open, ready to embrace you with a hug.
A hug to know you better, for you'll love this place.
Wherever you're from you'll be our guest so just be at home.
We have agreed to meet here, we'd like to welcome you.

The Evergreen at my place is quite legendary,
sown on the old Soil for memories to be cherished.
Strangers, old pals are our guests so just be at home.
Whether newcomers or re-visitors, we sure have lots to chat.

Welcome to Beijing, we built these all for you.
Flow with charm, refreshed and energized.
Welcome to Beijing, lets take a breath beneath the sn.
Let's set our new records on this soil.

My doors are always open, we're open for the world.
Time flies with youthful smiles, all waiting to greet this day.
Under the sky, everyone be our guest, so just be at home.
Nice scenery with smiling faces, are all awaiting there for you.

Welcome to Beijing, touching you this melody.
Let's excel and try our best.
Welcome to Beijing, dreamers are forerunners,
Miracles, for those daring to try.

Welcome to Beijing, we built these all for you
Flow with charm, refreshed and energized.
Welcome to Beijing, let's take a breath beneath the sun.
Let's set our new records on this soil.
