Bụi Phấn Lee Kirby
Bụi Phấn is a very popular song in Viet Nam and this is my version. I wanted to share my version of Bụi Phấn with everyone after I found out that it was sung regularly by Vietnamese students. I then decided to translate Bụi Phấn into English for Teacher’s day in Viet Nam (20th November). Please find my English lyrics below.
I hope you enjoy this version of Bụi Phấn.

Vietnamese Lyrics :
Khi thầy viết bảng , bụi phấn rơi rơi
Có hạt bụi nào rơi trên bục giảng
Có hạt bụi nào vương trên tóc thầy
Em yêu phút giây này
Thầy em tóc như bạc thêm
Bạc thêm vì bụi phấn
Cho em bài học hay
Mai sau lớn lên người
Làm sao có thể nào quên
Ngày xưa thầy dạy dỗ
Khi em tuổi còn thơ …
English Lyrics for Bui Phan:
I love the way you changed my life
You opened up my heart and mind
You encouraged me to follow my dream (can be dreams if you like)
I loved all those days,
when you showed me the way,
to trust in myself
and learn well each day
How could I forget,
the time that we shared?
You helped me grow up
to an adult instead
Thanks for all of your support.
