"Angry" (生气 shēng qì ) is a Groovi Pauli & Friends song from their 2009 album "Mandarin Chinese Songs for Kids." It is part of a series of songs about feelings. We hope you don't start to feel angry watching it!
It is written in a bilingual style with direct translation, an approach we altered on subsequent albums in favor of simple all-Chinese lyrics.
This music video was shot by Groovi Pauli & Friends on the spectacular, quiet beaches of Cebu, The Philippines in 2009. Technically, this video is different from our more "polished" recent music videos, such as "Halloween". Not to worry, as the meaning of the lyrics comes through, enhanced by the video and photos (from Creative Commons).
The lyrics are as follows, including pinyin (in parentheses) as reference for Chinese characters:
Chorus: 生气 (shēng qì) angry, 不快乐 (bú kuài lè) unhappy 难过 (nán guò) sad, 很烦 (hěn fán) frustrated, 讨厌(tǎo yàn) I hate it, 不高兴 (bù gāo xìng) unhappy 不喜欢 (bù xǐ huan) I don't like it，不好玩(bù hǎo wán) no fun
