- I’ve grown up with you, Hong river,
for the endless time,
why do you hate me, buddy,
and make my life miserable?
- Hey, you, my friend,
why do you blame me with no reason?
I’ve been embracing the water
for maybe over million years.
I see the life has been changing
then what I hate you for?             
- Keep on walking with your will,
with your thinking feet,
put away the boring days,
collect the happiness,
collect the buds,
with all of your true heart!
- Don’t lose your belief!
If you lose it, you’ll have nothing!
Try to become the current
taking water-plant, moss, trash… away!
And then new days will come
with blossoming tender flowers…
