Now here’s a new year gift with a difference: a rap video featuring none other than Xi Jinping.

Rough translation:

The Reform Group is Two Years Old

2015

Gotta eye the reform group in 2015

It] pushes economic development and a wealthier society

[It] improves [government] services

[Must] streamline the administration and delegate power to lower levels

[Must] believe in the government

Let hands that should not move stay unmoved, let the market rule

They insist on fighting corruption

They specialise in hitting tigers

Rule the party strictly

Govern the country by law

[The whole country] is overwhelmed with joy

Unfold the three stricts and three honests

Let the people supervise

Put a tight lid on corrupt officials who put out their hands recklessly

he reform group is two years old, it has done quite a lot

Change the education system, change the medical system, change the household registration system, CHANGE CHANGE CHANGE CHANGE!

Help the people, benefit the people, don’t tire people

Fight poverty with precision

[Xi sound bite] Let the people’s wishes become our action

The reform group is two years old, it has done quite a lot

Change the pricing system, change taxes, change SOEs, CHANGE CHANGE CHANGE CHANGE!

Streamline the administration and delegate power to lower levels, unleash energy

Reform the supply side and upgrade the economy

[Xi sound bite] An arrow will never return once it’s shot by a bow

The reform group is two years old, it has done quite a lot

Flies, tigers, big foxes, CATCH CATCH CATCH CATCH!

To rule the party strictly we must harden our bodies, the judicial reform must be victorious

[Xi sound bite] All corruption must be punished. Every corrupt official must be prosecuted

The reform group is two years old, it has done quite a lot

Cure the water, cure the air, cure the land, CURE CURE CURE CURE!

Clear water and lush mountains equals a mountain of gold

This is what is we must do on ‘One Belt, One Road’

[Xi sound bite] The principle of wide consultation, joint contribution and shared benefits.

Push progress in Asia and Europe

It’s name is ‘One Belt, One Road’

Free-trade [zone] opened, mutual help on law and finance

Founding of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, accelerating the building of infrastructure

The yuan admitted to SDR

They hate smog to the bone

To preserve ecology, [they are] determined to open the bow

Shut down the ones that are supposed to be shut down

Suspend those who are supposed to be suspended

With clear water and lush mountains, a new march can start

The reform group is two years old, it has done quite a lot

Change the pricing system, change taxes, change SOEs, CHANGE CHANGE CHANGE CHANGE!

Help the people, benefit the people, don’t tire people

Fight poverty with precision

[Xi sound bite] Let the people’s wish become our action

The reform group is two years old, it has done quite a lot

Change the pricing system, change taxes, change SOEs, CHANGE CHANGE CHANGE CHANGE!

Streamline the administration and delegate power to lower levels and unleash energy

Reform the supply side and upgrade the economy

[Xi sound bite] Only the daring will prevail at key stages of reform

The reform group is two years old, it has done quite a lot

Flies, tigers, big foxes, CATCH CATCH CATCH CATCH!

To rule the party strictly we must harden our bodies, the judicial reform must be victorious

[Xi sound bite] Hold the sword to fight corruption high

The reform group is two years old, it has done quite a lot

Cure the water, cure the air, cure the land, CURE CURE CURE CURE!

Clear water and lush mountains equals a mountain of gold

This is what is we must do on ‘One Belt, One Road’

[Xi sound bite] It’s not closed, but open and tolerant.
