千年等一回 Millennial Wait
千年等一回，等一回啊 千年等一回，我无悔啊 是谁在耳边说，爱我永不变 只为这一句，啊哈 断肠也无怨 雨心碎风流泪噫 梦缠绵情悠远噫 西湖的水我的泪 我情愿和你化作一团火焰 啊 啊 啊 千年等一回，等一回啊 千年等一回，我无悔啊
a thousand-years wait, ahh just this once a thousand-years wait, ahh i have no regrets who was it whispered to me, “love me till eternity” just for this, ahha , cut me in half and i complaint not the rain is heartbroken, and the wind is shedding tears , eh the dreams entwine, feelings spread far, eh West Lake's waters and my tears i would merge with you into a ball of light ah ahh ahh a thousand-years wait, ahh just it once a thousand-years wait, ahh i have no regrets

Once the white snake was saved by a male student, and fell in love with him, and wishes to become his wife and serve him for her gratitude.
