China’s national strategy in a rap song

A Song of “Four Comprehensives”

(talk)
One is just a point,
Two can form a line,
Three become a plane,
Four will do all fine!

(dialogue)
Woman: What are you singing about?
Man: Have you heard of the Four Comprehensives?
Woman: Is it something to do with the Chinese Dream?
Man: Haha, well, let me tell you.

(sing)
Follow me, Four Comprehensives, Four Comprehensives, prosperity is the goal.
Follow me, Four Comprehensives, Four Comprehensives, reform is the drive.
Follow me, Four Comprehensives, Four Comprehensives, rule of law is the guarantee.
Follow me, Four Comprehensives, Four Comprehensives, Party building is the key.

(rap)
Comprehensively building a moderately prosperous society is a dream shared by all.
With enough to eat and spend, we’ve got no worries any more.
Besides mountains of gold and silver, we need green hills and clean water.
We want a healthy environment, so smog must go away! (go away!)

(rap)
Comprehensively deepening reform is no easy job.
Education, employment, pension and healthcare: all have to be there!
The cities and countryside are going high with start-ups and business creativity.
Cut red tape and knock down barriers for economic levity.

(brainwashing)
One is just a point, two can form a line,
Three become a plane, four will do all fine!
Prosperity is the goal, reform is the drive,
Rule of law is the guarantee, Party building is the key!
We have to say again and again.
Four Four Four Four, Four Comprehensives!
We have to say again and again.
Four Four Four Four, Four Comprehensives!

(sing)
Follow me, Four Comprehensives, Four Comprehensives, prosperity is the goal.
Follow me, Four Comprehensives, Four Comprehensives, reform is the drive.
Follow me, Four Comprehensives, Four Comprehensives, rule of law is the guarantee.
Follow me, Four Comprehensives, Four Comprehensives, Party building is the key.

(rap)
Comprehensively governing the nation by rule of law, we must abide by rules.
Nobody is above the law. Nobody can abuse power!
Hidden rules are useless. Offenders should not be shameless.
Everyone is equal before the law. Think your dad can protect you? No way!

(rap)
Comprehensively governing the Party, the political environment will be clear and clean.
Tigers are caged. Flies are caught.
The Party is the core leadership to march ahead.
Pathfinders of this kind, we give the thumbs-up! (great!)

(brainwashing)
One is just a point, two can form a line,
Three become a plane, four will do all fine!
Prosperity is the goal, reform is the drive,
Rule of law is the guarantee, Party building is the key!
We have to say again and again.
Four Four Four Four, Four Comprehensives!
We have to say again and again.
Four Four Four Four, Four Comprehensives!

(sing)
Follow me, Four Comprehensives, Four Comprehensives, prosperity is the goal.
Follow me, Four Comprehensives, Four Comprehensives, reform is the drive.
Follow me, Four Comprehensives, Four Comprehensives, rule of law is the guarantee.
Follow me, Four Comprehensives, Four Comprehensives, Party building is the key.

(sing)
Follow me, Four Comprehensives, Four Comprehensives, prosperity is the goal.
Follow me, Four Comprehensives, Four Comprehensives, reform is the drive.
Follow me, Four Comprehensives, Four Comprehensives, rule of law is the guarantee.
Follow me, Four Comprehensives, Four Comprehensives, Party building is the key.

(diminuendo)
Woman: Have you finished?
Man: Hehe, come on!

(chorus: Ode to Joy)
We have Four Comprehensives, the Chinese dream is not far away!
We have Four Comprehensives, the Chinese dream is not far away!
We have Four Comprehensives, the Chinese dream is not far away!
We have Four Comprehensives, the Chinese dream is not far away!
