千年等一回,等一回啊~~
千年等一回,我无悔啊~~
是谁在耳边说,爱我永不变
只为这一句,啊哈~~断肠也无怨
雨心碎风流泪噫~~
梦缠绵情悠远噫~~
西湖的水我的泪
我情愿和你化作一团火焰
啊~~啊~~啊~~

千年等一回,等一回啊~~
千年等一回,我无悔啊~~
a thousand-years wait, ahh just this once ~~
a thousand-years wait, ahh i have no regrets ~~
who was it whispered to me, “love me till eternity”
just for this, ahha ~~, cut me in half and i complaint not
the rain is heartbroken, and the wind is shedding tears , eh ~~
the dreams entwine, feelings spread far, eh~~
West Lake's waters and my tears
i would merge with you into a ball of light
ah~~ ahh~~ ahh~~

a thousand-years wait, ahh just it once ~~
a thousand-years wait, ahh i have no regrets ~~
“千年等一回”

This song is based on Legend of the White Snake, a Chinese folk tale. The story is about a White snake and her sister a green snake, both are 精Jing1. Once the white snake was saved by a male student, and fell in love with him, and wishes to become his wife and serve him for her gratitude. However, since she is a monster as a matter of fact, there lies several obstacles in their union… Here's the white snake is singing, of her devotion to the guy.

(In Chinese mythology, 精Jing1 are animals who have lived over a thousand years and have gained the ability to transform into human form, and understand human affairs. The type of animals that became 精 are often just fox, spider, snake, and invariably female, and beautiful. Some are good, most are bad, ensnaring men or married men.)
