Lyrics of The Night Of Naval Port

Chinese Lyrics

军港的夜啊静悄悄

海浪把战舰轻轻地摇

年轻的水兵头枕着波涛

睡梦中露出甜美的微笑

海风你轻轻地吹

海浪你轻轻地摇

远航的水兵多么辛劳

回到了祖国母亲的怀抱

让我们的水兵好好睡觉

军港的夜啊静悄悄

海浪把战舰轻轻地摇

年轻的水兵头枕着波涛

睡梦中露出甜美的微笑

海风你轻轻地吹

海浪你轻轻地摇

远航的水兵多么辛劳

待到朝霞映红了海面

看我们的战舰又要起锚

English Translation

The night of naval port is so quiet,

the wave make warship swing slowly.

The young seaman pillow the wave,

reveal the sweet smile in his dream.

The light seawind blowing,

the light wave swing.

The seaman after voyage were very tired.

Return to embrance of motherland,

let our seamans have a good dream.

The night of naval port is so quiet,

the wave make warship swing slowly.

The young seaman pillow the great wave,

reveal the sweet smile in his dream.13

The light seawind blowing,

the light wave swing.

The seaman after voyage were very tired.

When the morning glow shines the sea,

look, our warships are leaving again.
