We bow to the flame, setting Beijing’s heart afire,
Our pride, our joy and our tears
Tell of all that we desire;
Peoples’ Games are truly here
Dream comes true since many a’ year,
Olympiad competition born of man’s unity.
So strive, all ye young, for the Gold but better still
Leap high, go fast and be strong，
Taking part is more the thrill,
Red and yellow, black and white
Make Olympic Spirit ever thrive,
To bring a world of peace and beautiful harmony,
Let it thus always be!
Certain to ever be!
On this full-greened stage of fame
Nations united again,
Say it will always be,
Black and yellow, red and white,
Make your pledge … prove it right!
Beijing, welcomes all the world
In our arms flung wide and our bosom warm
You will find the love we’ve yearned to unfurl,
Beijing, open to your friendly gaze
Bathe in pleasures true that we give to you
And may all rich memories last your lifetime through.
Welcome to Beijing!
As guests you’re Queens and Kings!
