Wo de fu qin mu qin

I only found out last night.
The mayor informed me by phone.
I couldn't believe it.
My hometown is Sanhetun,
a village in the mountains.

I left home to work in the city.
I was so busy
that I haven't been back in years.

My father was the village schoolteacher.
He taught there all his life.
I am the only child...
...the only one from our village
who went to college.

I am very worried about my mother.
I am afraid she can not
cope with this sudden change.

Come in and take a break.
I've got to get back.
Thank your boss again for me.
Thank you.

Mayor, UncIe Xia.
I saw the car and I knew you were back.
Come in. It's warmer inside.
Sit down.
I couIdn't teII you much over the phone.
