Worldly wisdom in Hokkien songs. (Part 2)

Presenting Chen Lei, the effervescent Taiwanese singer: "So long as you are happy!"

If you don't know Hokkien, below is my bluff (rough) translation:

Life is such that you must understand
Some will praise you, others condemn
Better let them go, as long as you are happy so
Life is short, just like a play
Sometimes good sometimes nay

Complain of parking problem
Complain of house too small
Complain of tasteless food
Complain of ugly wife not good

Big car fear of being stolen
Big house hard to maintain
Good food health problem
Pretty wife eloped again

Aiyoooooh.....So long as you are happy!!!!!!!!!!
