康氏早年丧夫,与儿子张义相依为命,过着清贫的日子。一日,张义钓到一个金龟,康氏深为感慨,并有一种逃离"鬼门关"的喜悦。当张义对康氏开玩笑说不养母亲了,康氏信以为真,就苦口婆心好言相劝儿子,并用"二十四孝"和"不孝"的子孙的例子来教育儿子。

Widow Kang Shi lived a simple life with her younger son, Zhang Yi. One day, Zhang Yi caught a golden turtle. The mother was excited at the gift from heaven because the turtle would help the family out of poverty. The son made a joke of it and pretended to have no interest in supporting his mother any longer. The mother was upset. In this solo the mother reminded the son of his filial duty by reciting 24 cases of filial piety in Chinese history.



唱词 Lyrics

老天爷睁开了三分眼 
After the rain comes the sunshine

母子们离却了那鬼门关
The family is about to embark on a happiness journey

这也是儿的孝心感动了天地
I believe this is because God was moved by your filial conduct

从今后享荣华永不受那贫寒
We are finally heading for a comfortable life

叫张义我的儿呀听娘教训
Zhang Yi, my son, listen to your mother

待为娘对娇儿细说分明
Let’s talk about the old days

儿的父他遭不幸丧了性命
Your father unfortunately lost his life when you were still young

抛下了母子们怎度光阴
I have gone through great difficulties to raise you alone

是为娘守贞节我不听旁论

Despite the hardship I remained loyal to your father

皆因是我的儿年小娘在中年
Because you were still vulnerable,

我怕的是 百年之后身入九泉
I decided not to remarry though I’m still middle aged

难见儿那去世的先人我的儿呀
If something happened to you, I have no gut to see your father after death .  M
y  child!
