Chinese tongue twisters

The vine and the bell

On a green mountain
grows a vine.

Under the vine,
there hangs a copper bell.

When the wind blows,
the vine moves,
(and so does the bell).

When the wind stops
the vine stops,
(and the bell stops too).

Vague Phoenix

Red phoenix,
pink phoenix,
pink-red phoenix.

Miss Liu and the cowboy

The cowboy longs
for Miss Liu.

Miss Liu pines
for the cowboy.

The cowboy longs for Miss Liu
year in, year out.

Miss Liu pines for the cowboy
for ever and ever.
