Frozen ‘Let it Go’ Sing-a-Long in Mandarin

Frozen ‘Let it Go’ Sing-a-Long in Mandarin

A great way to learn Mandarin as a beginner, or study new words and keep them in your head as an intermediate learner, is to sing-a-long. I especially love Disney songs, because the lyrics are easy to remember and the translations are often beautifully done. My latest favorite is Disney’s Frozen with the titlesong “Let it Go”. Watch the English sing-a-long version here:

The Mandarin version of “Let it Go” is sung by Yao Beina (姚贝娜). Just listen how good it sounds (perhaps even better than the English?) Judge for yourself and see the video with subtitles in (traditional) characters here:

Here are the English and Chinese lyrics of ‘Let it Go’ or ‘Sui Ta Ba (随它吧)’. Scroll down for detailed translation and pinyin.

Let it go, Let it go
Can’t hold it back anymore
Let it go, Let it go
Turn my back and slam the door

The snow glows white
on the mountain tonight
Not a footprint to be seen
A kingdom of isolation and
it looks like I’m the queen

The wind is howling
like the swirling storm inside
Couldn’t keep it in, heaven knows I tried

Don’t let them in, don’t let them see
Be the good girl, You always had to be
Conceal, don’t feel, Don’t let them know
Well, now they know

Let it go, Let it go
Can’t hold it back anymore
Let it go, Let it go
Turn my back and slam the door
And here I stand, and here I’ll stay
Let it go, Let it go
The cold never bothered me anyway

It’s funny how some distance
Makes everything seem small
And the fears that once controlled me
Can’t get to me at all

Up here in the cold thin air
I finally can breathe
I know I left a life behind
but I’m too relieved to grieve

Let it go, Let it go
Can’t hold it back anymore
Let it go, Let it go
Turn my back and slam the door
And here I stand, and here I’ll stay
Let it go, Let it go
The cold never bothered me anyway

Standing frozen in the life I’ve chosen
You won’t find me,
the past is all behind me
Buried in the snow

Let it go, Let it go
Can’t hold you back anymore
Let it go, Let it go
Turn my back and slam the door
And here I stand, And here I’ll stay
Let it go, Let it go
The cold never bothered me anyway
随它吧 随它吧
回头已没有办法
随它吧 随它吧
一转身不再牵挂

白雪发亮
铺满我的过往
没有脚印的地方
孤立国度很荒凉
我是这里的女皇

漫天飞霜
像心里的风暴一样
只有天知道 我受过的伤

不让别人进来看见
做我自己就像我的从前
不在现实梦境之间
不被发现

随它吧 随它吧
回头已没有办法
随它吧 随它吧
一转身不再牵挂
悬崖上 让我留下
随它吧 随它吧
反正冰天雪地我也不怕

留一点点的距离
让我跟世界分离
曾经困扰我的恐惧
消失在我回忆

夜里冰冷的空气
我终于能呼吸
我留下自己的过去
抹掉眼泪的痕迹

随它吧 随它吧
回头已没有办法
随它吧 随它吧
一转身不再牵挂
悬崖上 让我留下
随它吧 随它吧
反正冰天雪地我也不怕

封闭生活 我生命的选择
别再找我
过去已经离开我
风雪已淹没

随它吧 随它吧
回头已没有办法
随它吧 随它吧
一转身不再牵挂
悬崖上 让我留下
随它吧 随它吧
反正冰天雪地我也不怕

So here we go! Before you know it, you’ll be singing along in Mandarin.

Sui ta ba, sui ta ba
Let it go, let it go
回头已没有办法
Huitou yi meiyou banfa
There’s no way of going back
随它吧 随它吧
Sui ta ba, sui ta ba
Let it go, let it go
一转身不再牵挂
Yi zhuanshen bu zai qiangua
Once I’ve turned around, I never have to worry anymore

白雪发亮 铺满我的过往
Bai xue faliang, pu man wo de guowang
The white snow shines, covering my moves
没有脚印的地方
Meiyou jiaoyin de difang
There are no footsteps
孤立国度很荒凉
Guli guodu hen huangliang
A country of isolation so bleak and desolate
我是这里的女皇
Wo shi zheli de nuwang
I am the queen here
漫天飞霜 像心里的风暴一样
Mantianfei shuang xiang xin li de fengbao yiyang
Frost fills the sky, like the storm in my heart
只有天知道 我受过的伤
Zhi you tian zhidao wo shouguo de shang
Only heaven knows how I suffered

不让别人进来看见
Bu rang bie ren jinlai kanjian
Don’t let other people come in and see
做我自己就像我的从前
Zuo wo ziji jiu xiang wo de congqian
Be myself like I was in the past
不在现实梦境之间

Not be in an actual dreamland

Not be discovered

Leave me behind on the cliff

To separate me from the world
曾经困扰我的恐惧

has vanished in my memory
夜里冰冷的空气
Yeli bingleng de kongqi
The icy air of the night
我终于能呼吸
Wo zhongyu neng huxi
Finally I can breathe

Erasing the marks of my tears

Already submerged in snow

  4. Rikka Takanashi says:

    Chinese sounds good. They sound equally nice, but Demi Lovato’s versions sounds horrible. Deaf after listening to it!

  5. Septian Sugara says:

    O my god! my laoshi asked me to search the lyrics of ‘sui ta ba’ than I wonder that it is actually ‘let it go’ hahaha. Its a lot of fun to learn chinese with a song, but frankly, I think i need the simpler one :p anyway, xiexie for the lyrics. Warm hug from Indonesia ^_^
