Here Is a Stage

 

Here is a stage,
warmly opening

on the oriental

New Year’s Day.


Gonging, drumming,

horning and trumpeting,
welcome everyone
Come to perform a
play!

 

If you are a prodigy,
come to show with vanity.
If you are a celebrity,

come to show with dignity.

 

If you are a whiz,

come to show your quality.

If you are a wizard,

come to prove your quiddity.

 

If you have delicious dishes,

Please flaunt and feast.

If you have lucky lotteries,

Please give us a treat!

 

 

I am only a half…halfwit.

Please sit left-hand on the seat.

I am truly a hard…humble slave.

Please serve right-hand on your feet.

 

I am a kind of… hollow vegie.

I see you are even askew on stage.

Hard-work can’t be hard-nosed.

Call your backer to boost you elated!

 

No matter you are:

whoever and whatever,

wherever and what color,

Come here perform together!

 

Let us have a hilarity.

Raise our spirit high!

 

He! He!  Ha! Ha!

Hey! Hey!  Hai! Hai!
All High! 
Ever High!!!
