This music video by Groovi Pauli & Friends is aimed at teaching young children how to describe a few things about what they might do on a weekend. The title of the song is 周末 (zhōu mò) Weekend plans recorded by Groovi Pauli & Friends/张保利 (in 2009). It appears on their second album, "More Chinese Songs for Kids" (2010). This song was recorded in a bilingual style where the Chinese words are followed by English translation, a style we have since abandoned in favor of a simple, call and response style. No harm done - this still works! The video was recorded in Cebu, the Philippines.

Lyrics are as follows:
