wish you prosperity and wealth
wish you a brilliant life
best things come and
bad ones go away
you can never enough of it.
I wish girls around the world
each marry a good boy
the young couples always stick together
I wish kids around the world would be
smarter than professors
All are with heads full of good ideas
I wish the respectable grannies

with great ease
I wish my uncle a booming business
and a fame around the world
May he make a good fortune and live in a posh house.
nd stride forward
be happy-go-lucky and misfortunes never come
wish you prosperity and wealth
say it loudly
wish you prosperity and wealth
wish you prosperity and wealth
wish you brilliant life
best things come to you
bad ones go away
you can never say enough of it.

everybody always has smile on face
nurture love with heart
and will be greater tomorrow
I wish all the frustrations run away
faster than Bolt
talents come up every year
all stride forward
be happy-go-lucky and misfortunes never come
wish you prosperity and wealth
say it loud
wish you prosperity and wealth
wish you brilliant life
best things come
bad ones go away
you can never say enough of it
