三字经 ~ My New 'CD'

Mama recently bought a new book + CD = 三字经
First, I only listen to it, cant remember
After one month, I can memorized the following :
And I love to read & sing it!!
人之初,性本善。性相 近,习相远。

苟不教,性乃迁。教之道,贵以专。

昔孟母,择邻处。子不学,断机杼。

窦燕山,有义方。教五子,名俱扬。

养不教,父之过。教不严,师之惰。

子不学,非所宜。幼不学,老何为。

玉不琢,不成器。人不学,不知义。

为人子,方少时。亲师友,习礼仪。

The following only remember some of the phrases, still need lots of effort to memorize!! :-p
香 九龄,能温席。孝于亲,所当执。
融四 岁,能让梨。弟于长,宜先知
首孝悌,次见闻。知某数,识某文。

一而十,十而百。百而千,千而万。

三才者,天地人。三光者,日月星。

三纲者,君臣义。父子亲,夫妇顺。

曰春夏,曰秋冬。此四时,运不穷。

曰南北,曰西东。此四方,应乎中。

曰水火,木金土。此五行,本乎数。

十干者,甲至癸。十二支,子至亥。

曰仁义,礼智信。此五常,不容紊。

地所生,有草木。此植物,遍水陆。

有虫鱼,有鸟兽。此动物,能飞走。

稻梁菽,麦黍稷。此六谷,人所食。

马牛羊,鸡犬豕。此六畜,人所饲。

曰喜怒,曰哀惧。爱恶欲,七情俱。

青赤黄,及黑白。此五色,目所识。

酸苦甘,及辛咸。此五味,口所含。

膻焦香,及腥朽。此五臭,鼻所嗅。

匏土革,木石金。丝与竹,乃八音。

曰平上,曰去入。此四声,宜 调协。

高曾祖,父而身。身而子,子而孙。

自子孙,至玄曾。乃九族,人之伦。

父子恩,夫妇从。兄则友,弟则恭。

长幼序,友与朋。君则敬,臣则忠。
