What's that song?

Many people have asked about the song that plays at the beginning of each Follow Jade! segment. It's a song familiar to many children in China, as "Mary had a little lamb" is familiar to many who grow up in the United States. The lyrics are:

English
Pinyin
1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7
Where is my friend?
Here he is!
Here she is!
Here is my friend.

Yī - èr - sān - sì - wǔ - liù - qī
Wǒ dē péng yǒu zài nǎ lǐ,
Zài zhè lǐ,
Zài zhè lǐ,
Wǒ dē péng yǒu zài zhè lǐ.

Note: Some browsers may not display the characters in pinyin above correctly.

Note that the phase zài zhè lǐ is not gender specific, it can refer to either he or she in English, so we have used them interchangably in the translation.
