謹賀新年 (Kinga Shin Nen)


Explanation:
Thank you William for wonderful site. However, you will not find this expression in Japanese section of the site. That one is for a conversation, this is quintessential new year greeting for writing.

Wish you all a happy and prosperous 2007!

Happy new year(song)

Super Trouper

No more champagne
And the fireworks are through
Here we are, me and you
Feeling lost and feeling blue
It's the end of the party
And the morning seems so grey
So unlike yesterday
Now's the time for us to say
Happy new year
Happy new year
May we all have a vision now and then
Of a world where every neighbour is a friend
Happy new year
Happy new year
May we all have our hopes, our will to try
If we don't we might as well lay down and die
You and I
Sometimes I see
How the brave new world arrives
And I see how it thrives
In the ashes of our lives
Oh yes, man is a fool
And he thinks he'll be okay
Dragging on, feet of clay
Never knowing he's astray
Keeps on going anyway
Happy new year
Happy new year
May we all have a vision now and then
Of a world where every neighbour is a friend
Happy new year
Happy new year
May we all have our hopes, our will to try
If we don't we might as well lay down and die
You and I
Seems to me now
That the dreams we had before
Are all dead, nothing more
Than confetti on the floor
It's the end of a decade
In another ten years time
Who can say what we'll find
What lies waiting down the line
In the end of eighty-nine
Happy new year
Happy new year
May we all have a vision now and then
Of a world where every neighbour is a friend
Happy new year
Happy new year
May we all have our hopes, our will to try
If we don't we might as well lay down and die
You and I

可爱的小吉飞往温哥华
陪在父母的身旁
漂亮的路易依然还在
每天不停的烦恼
坚强的阿玲在马来西亚
追逐自己的梦想
聪明的丹丹依然还在
应付不断的奔忙
无论天涯 不分海角
喜怒哀乐 一一起舞
Happy New Year to you
Happy New Year to you
Happy New Year Happy New Year
勇敢的兔子还留在他乡
寻找新鲜的方向
温柔的骚骚依然还在
望着娃娃的成长
