不 怕, 不 怕 - Bu pa, bu pa

Here is a link to a Chinese song that I came across by accident called Bu pa, bu pa. The original song called "Dragostea Din Tei" was a Romanian song by the band O-Zone. There have been a lot of versions of the song released in many different languages since the original release in 2003.

In recent times a Thailand version of the song has spawned a lip-synching craze on YouTube and become known as the "Numa Numa" song.

Anyway it's a fun song and the language is not too difficult so I decided to do a translation. I did have some help cleaning up my original translation though. My Mandarin is not yet that good and so I was a bit too literal in a few places.
