Apparently every kid in China knows this song Jessica found it at ChinesePod.com. Usually people don’t use the tones when they sing in Mandarin, but this guy sings with the tones on the third time around. Careful, though. If you listen too many times, it will be stuck in your head for days.
|Two tigers, two tigers
Running fast, running fast
One has no eyes
One has no ears
Really strange, really strange!

Some versions use tail (å°¾å·´ – wÄ›i ba) instead of ears (è€³æœµ – Ä›r duo). I’m gonna learn to write it so I have some “poetry” to write next time we visit the guys who write calligraphy with water on the sidewalk in the park.
