Guess who am I?

Wǒ chángcháng cóng nǐ shēn biān jīngguò,
我    常常             从     你  身    边      经过,

 

I often pass by you,

Nǐ què kàn bú dào wǒ, yě mō bú zháo wǒ.
你 却   看   不  到   我,也 摸 不 着    我。

 

But you can’t see me; you can’t touch me.

Xiǎo cǎo jiàn wǒ wān yāo,
小     草   见   我   弯    腰,

 

Little grass stoops down for me,

花儿     见  我   点    头,

 

Flowers nod at me,

Xiǎo shù jiàn wǒ zhāo shǒu,
小     树    见   我   招     手,

 

Little trees wave at me,

Yúnduǒ suí wǒ tiàowǔ,
云朵       随   我  跳舞,

 

Clouds dance with me,

Xiǎo péngyou, qǐng nǐ cāicai, wǒ shì shuí?
小      朋友,   请     你 猜猜,我   是   谁?
