The Lyrics

1.

Chorus

This is a great river, its waves are wide and calm
The wind blows through the rice flowers, bearing fragrance to either shore
My home is right there by the water
I am used to hearing the punters' whistle
and seeing the white sails on the boats

Solo

This is a great river, its waves are wide and calm
The wind blows through the rice flowers, bearing fragrance to either shore
My home is right there by the water
I am used to hearing the punters' whistle
and seeing the white sails on the boats

Chorus

This is the beautiful motherland
The place where I grew up
In this expansive stretch of land
Wonderful landscape can be seen everywhere

2.

Solo

Young ladies are like flowers
Young men have a big heart and grand visions
In order to construct a new realm
They have waked the sleeping mountains
And made the rivers change their appearance

Chorus

This is the motherland of heroes
The place where I grew up
In this stretch of ancient land
There is youthful vigour found everywhere

3.

Solo

Great mountains, great rivers and an amazing place
Every road is flat and wide
When friends are here, there is fine wine
But if the jackal comes
What greets it is the hunting rifle

Chorus

This is the strong motherland
The place where I grew up
On this stretch of warm and friendly land
The sunshine of peace is everywhere


"My Motherland" was called as "A Big River" (Chinese: 一条大河) by the author initially; it represented the hundreds of rivers that flowed by the homes of the Chinese people. The title was changed when it was published with movie.

Although the song was written for the movie about Korean War in 1950s, there is no mention of the war at all. It describes a soldier (or anyone who is away from home) thinking about his home and his family. Thus, this song is extremely popular even when the movie itself is almost forgotten.

Not quite as it has been made out unfortunately.

Here is my understanding --- Obama is a muslim and believes that anyone who believes in any other religion is heathen and a heretic obviouslly not worthy of sharing the same planetary space as him - so im sure Obama and his administration knew what sort of insults the chinese had planned --- look at the state of the country - who is at fault the population who are out working, creating, continuing the american dream or --- the parties who lead us - taking from us for nothing(taxation without representation) --- slowly removing our freedoms ( Nazi Style) , creating a failure in our economy and shaking hands with communists who are our new best friends and wonderful good business partners --- tank u very much... Im chinese, I play joke... I put Pee Pee in your Coke... What happened to the day when America was a force to be reckoned with, and not a farse to be riduculed ?

Thanks for putting that up.
The folks discussing it didn't say the music lyrics were anti-American.
They said the film that it goes with is and that the music brings up the images of the anti-American film.
Kinda like Star Wars music itself isn't 'space music' but it brings up the images from Star Wars.
At least .. that's what I get out of reading the article.

It's things like this that make me know I'm justified in my fear of China. When the Chinese are more arrogant than American politicians, you know that they're approaching, and are probably over, the sociopath line.

Photos Show That Chairman Hu's Welcomers Were Paid

When Chinese Chairman Hu Jintao came to Washington, his reception had been planned with great care—not only by the White House, but the Chinese Embassy too.

The embassy put the word out to its network of front groups to mobilize: thousands of students and others would descend on the capital, their transportation and food would be covered, and they would be paid between $20 and $80.


Chinese Embassy Pays Students to Welcome ‘Chairman Hu’

Students and front groups used to keep protestors out of sight.

Chinese officials do not want the welcoming ceremonies for Hu Jintao to appear like top-down directives, according to Boxun, a Chinese website based outside China. An official from the education division from the Chinese Consulate in Chicago told students at a recent meeting, according to Boxun: “If you run into journalists trying to interview you, just say you came spontaneously to do the welcome, and paid for all your own costs



AGAIN .. IF IF these stories are true .. then we all just got served up a nasty helping of propaganda pie .. Chinese style. Nothing has changed with that countrys leadership and way of doing things. It's all a front and a lie. And our tax money paid for the state visit at our end. :shk:

Oh .. one last thing .. FREE TIBET!!
There .. I said it. The Communists made sure the signs weren't seen in DC.
But I can still say it here .. (for now anyways).




propaganda pie?doesn't your government specialise in this?''all a front and a lie'' ha ha ha pissed because the Chinese are better at this than your government with the token negroe as president.

Let them play their song, seriously.

Meanwhile, their nation is being polluted into a cesspit.

And the people of China are slaving away making stuff for the rest of the world.

Looks to me like they got the short end of the stick.
So let em play their tune.

Gosh, the America I grew up in, the America that was compassionate, courageous, intelligent, and progressive, would have taken pride in making a "guest" feel welcome; even at the expense of a bit of self-effacement.

The America I grew up in was self-confident enough to greet a guest on the guest's own terms, be it a handshake, or a bow, without worrying about whether courtesy towards a guest would be interpeted as a sign of weakness.

MY America did not suffer from so fragile an ego.



Is it not said that only the truly strong can afford to appear weak, while the weak must forever maintain the appearance of overwhelming strength?

This would be equivalent to when Bush visited the queen he breaks into yankee doodle dandy. Which he did do something similar. In fact trivia...who recalls what he did? I hate to say it but I think if Bush had a quiet presidency he would've been liked by most patriot nationalists. He had a certain trait. Other than being the great miscommunicator. If that had been a scene with the "chinamens" on his watch it probably would be reminiscent of the scene in Casablanca in Rick's place when the Germans and he French try to over sing one another. And yes there would've been lots of alcohol. His dad threw up his martinis in the Japanese PMs lap. But I do believe this, that was deliberate. That was a glove to the face to every Korean US vet and my attitude to Chinaa has really changed. That goes to show that they still believe they are the center of earth. For those that dont know the symbol of China is a rectangle with a line through the middle vertically. Why arectangle cause at the time the worlx was flat. Obama is weak. He needs to be impeached. Not for this but by the damage he is doing. Between him and Bush we look muli-personality not multi-faceted. That was a.cue to us as they send troops back to station in N Korea and it was a wink to them that China has their back. They need a buffer betAKore S Korea and he mainland China. Obama needs to go back to Kenya. So in love with himself. I don't expect him to know our history who grew up in Indonesia.

hahaha i love this almost as good as george W-Ya reading the book on 9/11 haha
looks like china sees you americans as its own little pet goat!

Plot

"The Pet Goat" is the story of a girl's pet goat that eats everything in its path. The girl's parents want to get rid of the goat, but she defends it. In the end, the goat becomes a hero when it butts a car thief into submission.

hopefully you can redeem yourselves though, maybe another war?

Maybe Obama didn't bow low enough this time?
The man has no backbone. (Not needed second line.)



Don't know if this is original, but I think it would be fair to start referring to obama as "o-bow-ma" from now on.

Looks like the chinese walked into a White House state dinner and purposely humiliated this country and our naive and appeasing president.

I can see where the OP is coming from, but I think this might a slight overreaction.


But did you read the article? It says all the chinese involved including the chinese networks would have had to know the song was going to be played in advance.


We display American pride at the expense of foreigners everyday. Although I am not aware of an example of the same nature as this state dinner, I would not be surprised to learn of one.


Try doing the research before making such an absurd claim.


Certainly this pro-appeasement administration could not have done such a thing in another country's leader's home.

Epoch Times has a habit of making things up to make the PRC government look bad.

They were the ones saying that the 2008 Sichuan earthquake was a bomb test, and that people were dying from radiation poisoning. Among other things.

I'd retire this one to the Sorcha Fail file for now.

Perhaps.

But china doesn't come off looking bad in this one. It's the U.S. led by an obviously naive and out of his league obama that really comes off looking bad.

i love what you said

[snip]

let them have their one song because we have a mountain of useless crap that we make them make for us.

this is how it works,
you country needs clothes,technology etc etc

china makes said junk

china then sells it to you for as much as what it costs to make - stuff all
(your country then sells said junk to its people for massive mark up price)

china then makes "copied" stuff

then you come over to their country buy "copied" junk at an even cheapier price.

so in the end you travel halfway around the world to buy the stuff you already have for a cheapier price at the expense of your own country!!

china may have short end of the stick in your book
but
the long end is going right up your arse and out your mouth!!!

stuff your pride.
are you havin a laugh? is he havin a laugh?


how old is chinese civilisation again?

i think they know what they are doing.

I don't see that angle at all.

What I see is a story designed to portray the PRC government as laughing at the USA, and portray supporters of the PRC as anti-American. It's not always about Obama.

Its going to be funny, because in the long run American ingenuity will come out right on top with the rest. We just have a problem right now that needs to be fixed, although for the most part it's not getting done good enough. Eventually things will get better, good always comes after something bad sooner or later.

We dont have clothes? We dont have technology? You obviously know nothing.
I don't understand why they let scums like you on this website. Go back to your dumpster.

that old American ingenuity is workin a treat after 9/11 innit?

america is like a junky,

she doesnt know how addicted she is until she has to kick.
and then everyone around her has to listen to her moan and proclaim how her life is gonna turn around...

problem is junkies always relapse.

intervention is needed
now
not "she'll turn it all around", its too far gone for that mate.
your old america is no more but thats a good thing.


back to my dumpster mmm

LOL, I'd rather have my president bow to a leader than to MAKE OUT with one on the White House lawn and then go holding hands like lovers all over. I mean, I know you "Do as the Romans do" but Bush took it to an all new level of weirdness. Furthermore, I'd rather get punked by having a non-flattering song played than get punked by having thousands of my countrymen killed in a useless, ridiculous war of pride and greed. We can thank Dubya for that.

Do any of you really believe that any US leader is either Satan or Jesus? They're politicians. The end. They get punked, they punk other countries----this is not news.
