Vietnamese popular kids’ song has its English version
This is Our Lovely Earth, one of the best Vietnamese kids’ songs, is a gift from English teachers to Vietnamese children.
The project Bilingual Songs for Kids has just released a remix of the song “This is Our Lovely Earth" in Vietnamese and English on online platforms. The song, which was composed by Truong Quang Luc with lyrics by Dinh Hai, has been very familiar to many generations of Vietnamese children since it came out in 1979.

This is Our Lovely Earth is tweaked in a more contemporary way by reworking the instrumental track with the acoustic guitar tonewoods and sung by singer Nguyet Ca. The English lyrics are translated by two members of the “Bilingual Songs for Kids” project, Vu Chung in Vietnam and Dinh Thu Hong in the US, who are English teachers.
Hong told Hanoitimes that the song in the English version is a gift from English teachers to Vietnamese children on the occasion of International Children's Day (June 1) and World Environment Day (June 5).
“The “Bilingual Songs for Kids” is a non-profit project I've been carrying out with two wonderful friends in Vietnam. We are in hope of bringing beautiful Vietnamese children's songs to all Vietnamese children abroad as well as foreign friends," Hong said.
Listening to this song brought tears to my eyes because all my childhood memories come back,” she added.
This is Our Lovely Earth is the fourth song translated and released by the project.
Since 2018, the group has successfully translated the songs Cho con (For You, My Child) with music by Pham Trong Cau and lyric by Tuan Dung; Canh en tuoi tho (Swallows for Children) by Pham Tuyen; Chi co mot tren doi (Mom, You're the Only One to Me) by Truong Quang Luc.
The songs, after having been performed at some schools, education seminars, and posted on social networks, have received positive responses from children and parents.
“Bilingual Songs for Kids” will continue translating and performing more kids’ bilingual songs in the future.
