3 Chinese Songs About Fathers (Printable Lyrics and Videos)

Mandarin Chinese Father's Day songs with lyrics and music videos

Last month, my kids and I learned so many great Chinese songs about mothers. Now, we are starting to sing Chinese Father’s Day songs since the holiday is coming up in a few weeks!

Although my husband is not Chinese and doesn’t speak the language, he has been incredibly supportive about my heritage and our children speaking Mandarin Chinese.

While there are many positive songs about mothers, finding kid-friendly Chinese songs about fathers was challenging.

Most modern Chinese father songs that I found were about abandonment and healing from pain. Several popular music videos featured romance, and one featured a child getting whipped with a belt…(Parents: remember to screen YouTube videos before your kids watch them!)

As my heart ached for these musicians with troubled relationships, I felt extra grateful for my husband who has been only a kind, helpful, and faithful daddy to our kids.

Mandarin Chinese Father's Day songs with lyrics and music videos

3 Chinese songs for Father’s Day with music videos

After hours of internet digging, I found 4 Mandarin Chinese songs about loving fathers!

These 3 songs are for all ages:

  • 小臭臭 《你是太阳我是星星》
  • 筷子兄弟 《父亲》
  • 汪峰《爸爸》

Note that the last song is a tribute for children with fathers in Heaven. I think of my own late father when I hear this touching tune.

1. 小臭臭 《你是太阳我是星星》

Here is another adorable duet featuring 小臭臭 and her dad!

Subtitles are in simplified Chinese.

2. 筷子兄弟 《父亲》

The famous 筷子兄弟 Chopsticks Brothers created this song about a child who wants time to slow down so his father doesn’t grow older. He wants to take care of his parents but recognizes everything he does will not compare to his father’s sacrifices.

In this music video, a child 王浩丞 performs an abbreviated version of this song in front of his parents and large audience! Singing starts at 1:39 minutes.

Subtitles are in simplified Chinese.

小臭臭 also covers this song here.

If you want to hear the full original song with 筷子兄弟’s vocals, this YouTube link has lyrics only (no music video performance).

I excluded the original music video here because it is really quite sad and threw me off guard. The video has some violence and trauma; dad shooting a gun at war and also getting hit by a car and presumably dying.

3. 汪峰 《爸爸》

Last but not least is this lovely acoustic ballad by 汪峰 (Wāng Fēng) that honors his father in Heaven.

This video is from a 汪峰 concert in 2004. Subtitles are in simplified Chinese.
