"Sad" (难过 nán guò ) 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 this song does not make you feel too sad!

Given the topic "sad," we used a blues musical style for this song. If you're singing about being "blue," it might as well be the blues. The lyrics are 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:
我难过 (wǒ nán guò) I'm sad.
我说,我难过 (wǒ shuō wǒ nán guò "I'm saying, I'm sad.")
I'm so sad.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, 我难过。 (wǒ nán guò) I'm sad.
It may not show, 但是我难过。(dàn shì wǒ nán guò "but I am sad.")

Verse 1: 同学对我不好,我难过 (tóng xué duì wǒ bù hǎo, wǒ nán guò) my friend is being mean
朋友不跟我分享, 我也会难过。(péng you bù gēn wǒ fēn xiǎng, wǒ yě huì nán guò) not sharing, so I'm sad
对我说坏话。我不能忍受! (duì wǒ shuō huài huà. wǒ bù néng rěn shòu!) saying mean things, I can't take it.

Chorus:
我难过 (wǒ nán guò) I'm sad.
我说我难过 (wǒ shuō wǒ nán guò "I'm saying I'm sad.")
I'm so sad.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, 我难过。 (wǒ nán guò) I'm sad.
It may not show, 但是我难过。(dàn shì wǒ nán guò "but I am sad.")

Solo

Verse 2: 我最好的朋友要搬家。(wǒ zuì hǎo de péng you yào bān jiā) my best friend's moving away
以后看不到她 (yǐ hòu kàn bú dào tā) I won't see them again
我的朋友, 为什么要走? (wǒ de péng you, wèi shén me yào zǒu) My friend, why must you leave?

Chorus:
我难过 (wǒ nán guò) I'm sad.
我说我难过 (wǒ shuō wǒ nán guò "I'm saying I'm sad.")
I'm so sad.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, 我难过。 (wǒ nán guò) I'm sad.
It may not show, 但是我难过。(dàn shì wǒ nán guò "but I am sad.")
