Hong Kong and Taiwan have not passed the era of seclusion so they have long covered a large number of famous European and American songs with “bringing doctrine”. After the Chinese mainland’s reform and opening up, it is imported into the interior, so that people think that they are the original ones.

This kind of cover song still needs characteristics, which should be appropriate to the original music and express the original feeling. Zhuang Nu is well versed in lyrics skills, such as “you are like that fire, the bear can warm me” and “your big eyes are bright and twinkling, like the stars in the sky, the brightest one” in the middle.

On October 11, 2016, Zhuang Nu passed away. Zhuang’s lyrics do not pursue dazzling skills or use flowery words or mysterious words. They are plain, simple, and easy to understand. However, because they are full of true feelings and can strike a chord with the audience, they have been sung for decades and become eternal classics.e, Malaysian, and Indonesian listeners as well.

你的大眼睛 明亮又闪烁

You are like a fire in winter.

I feel your fire inside me.

Eachtime you come to me quietly.

You light up my life.

Your big eyes are bright and twincle.

They looks like the brightest stars on the sky.

You are like a fire.

I feel your fire inside me./ Your love keeps me warm.

You are like a fire.

You light up my life.

I like you but never tell you.

I also know you really love me.
