Yang Guifei 楊貴妃

Yang Guifei 楊貴妃

It is my desire to educate you about one of China’s most popular historical figures.  The Pinyin version can be found in its respective chapter’s section, and can be found by clicking on the title.  I am always looking for feedback.

If you copy and paste, make sure you cite me. 
Give you Chang’an 給妳長安
You adopted An Lushan 妳抱養安禄山
Relay horses raced to bring lychees 接力馬賽跑帶荔枝
Your family honored as nobilities 妳家榮獲如貴族
Your family extracted favoritism and money 妳家摘編和幣
My affection 我的感情
Attention 開小灶
Protection 保護
Granted no execution 御賜没處死
Out of thousands of beauties, I chose you my beauty 有数千美人,我選妳,我的美人
I am the only one who defends you, my lychee 我就誰的人妳,我的荔枝
Eventually I will falter against the sea 我總歸衰退蘁海
You are a liability 妳是負擔
You are the deadly beauty 妳是致命美人
I neglected my duties 我失蘵公事
Mutiny 嘩變
With great tension 還有極端張力
Promoted rebellion 促進暴亂
Run, run, run 逃桃逃
My affection 我的感情
Attention 開小灶
Protection 保護
Forced execution 被迫處死
Out of thousands of beauties, I chose you my beauty 有数千美人,我選妳,我的美人
I am the only one who defends you, my lychee 我就誰的人妳,我的荔枝
Eventually I will falter against the sea 我總歸衰退蘁海
You are a liability 妳是負擔
You are the deadly beauty 妳是致命美人
