lyrics

Con Gái Của Mẹ

Mẹ thường bảo con thân gái đục trong
Mai kia mốt nọ còn đi lấy chồng
Giờ thì ba má chìu cưng
Chẳng thèm liệu lo lấy thân
Lỡ mai về bên khó lòng

Nhà người ta xem chẳng dễ gì đâu
Ba bên bốn họ nhìn ra ngó vào
Họ hàng cô bác thì đông
Mẹ chồng em dâu biết không?
Đứng ngồi nói năng lựa lời

Dù người ta thương yêu
Con nhé đừng xem là thường
Xuất giá rồi thì tòng phu con nhé
Công ngôn dung đức hạnh
Trọn đời con thờ chồng
Giữ gìn tiếng sạch trong
Danh giá ta thủy chung

Học hành đi nghe con gái mẹ ngoan
Mai kia mốt nọ còn đi lấy chồng
Dặm ngàn thân gái đục trong
Một lần xe hoa pháo hồng
Suốt đời khắc ghi trong lòng


My Daughter

I often warn you that a lady’s fate is precarious
Be prepared for your marriage is near
Right now you are spoiled by us
You don’t even take care of yourself
What if it’s tough on their side?

Their family won’t be easy at all
They will all have eyes on you
Plenty of aunts and uncles,
The whole mother-in-law, daughter-in-law you know?
Choose your words wisely when you speak.

Even if he loves you
Don’t take it for granted, dear
Since you are married, remember your duty as a wife*
Virtue, speech, manner and work
A whole life dedicated to your husband
Keeping your reputation clean
Your honour is your devotion

Keep on learning my dear daughter
For you will be wed in the near future
A lady’s life is uncertain
One time on the carriage
Will be written down in your heart forever


* The Three Obediences and Four Virtues were a set of basic moral principles specifically for women in Confucianism. Vietnamese culture draws strong influences from Confucianist morals and the song demonstrates how the expectations of a lady was like through the advices of her mother.
