    My chinese isn`t great, but it translates (loosely) as this:

    "Cause if you like it then you shoulda put a ring on it
    If you like it then you shoulda put a ring on it
    Don`t be mad once you see that he want it
    If you like it then you shoulda put a ring on it

    Chinese opera more or less sounds like that. We saw one when were in Beijing last summer but a proper one with costumes and everything. It was lovely.

    This is Chinese opera so obviously it won`t sound like Western opera...and that little girl has a lot of discipline going up there in front of all those people to sing. Singing in any language is really difficult, even if it is your native language, especially for a kid. Give her a break.

    Owwwww......my ears are hurting! You would think for such an old culture that they could come up with better sounding musical equipment. 3 string guitars/violins or what ever you call it. You would think someone during some time several centuries ago would have added a 4th maybe even a 5th string. Pete Townsend go and smash that thing.

    The little girl was cute though. Just the screeching song I couldn`t stand.

    It is my understanding that they sing that way because historically women were not allowed to perform on stage. The roles of females were played by prepubescent boys who were groomed to sing in this high pitched voice in order to sound like females. I wouldn`t even be surprised to find out that this is a boy singing in the video (not sure if they still do this). If you ever get a chance to see the movie Farewell My Concubine , it is the story of one of these boys raised in the Chinese opera, and really gives a good overview of Chinese history from before the Japanese occupation to the rise of Comunism.

    Okay after a little checking I found that it is a girl named Kong Ying signing. Another performance

    I also found at least one reference that said this style of signing was developed in order to allow people to hear the singers over the instruments. But everything else about females being played by males is correct. This was due to females not being allowed to enter the theater.

    using my powers of translation, which i got from living under power lines, the song went something like this (sung in the style of "sophisticated bitch" by public enemy):
    "when i`m not working 16 hour days in a sweatshop for $1.25 a week, i spend the remaining time singing like a retarded justin bieber. i have to sing perfect so i don`t get beat by my singing coach and raped by the old head of state waiting off stage. on second thought, i`ll probably be molested anyway, for i have no say in what happens to me. chorus: a bunch of pots banging on the floor, the sound makes up our language." ugh! my powers have left me. i cannot translate anymore. anyhoo, adorable girl though.

I better not hear it when I get it up to take a pee in the middle of the night! The devil has a place for me in hell. It`s called Chinese opera.
