This article is out of universe from Kung Fu Panda.
This subject has been distinguished as part of the real world and therefore should not be taken as part of the fictional universe of the Kung Fu Panda franchise.

Kung Fu Panda 3 is the soundtrack of the film of the same name. It is composed by Hans Zimmer[3] and includes performances from renowned Asian musicians such as Chinese pianist Lang Lang, Chinese cellist Jian Wang, erhu musician Guo Gan, and Taiwanese pop singer Jay Chou along with his apprentice Patrick Brasca, who both sing the film's theme song.[4]

The soundtrack was released on January 22, 2016.[1][2]

Preface

Music is emotion. It reaches out to the audience and drives them to feel what the characters feel, and to be with those characters in every high and low of their journey. When done by a master like Hans Zimmer, it creates a presence all its own that can bring an audience to tears, or make them cheer in triumph. For many weeks we'd sit in Hans' man lair, a carved gothic library filled with art and musical instruments worthy of a museum, and watch him work. He and Lorne Balfe crafted something beautiful, ethnic, and epic. They make you feel the wonder of seeing pandas for the first time, and of Po getting to finally fly as the Dragon Warrior. They made the world bigger, funnier, and definitely more badass. Thanks to them and we hope you enjoy.

Lyrics

Kung Fu Fighting (Celebration Time)

Wo ho ho oh~
Wo ho ho oh~

每一个人都 功夫在身?
(měi yīgè rén dōu gōngfū zài shēn)
努力寻找气之魂
(nǔlì xúnzhǎo qì zhī hún)
虽然它有时 会让人慌神
(suīrán tā yǒushí huì ràng rén huāngshén)
却点亮 我的心灯
(què diǎn liàng wǒ de xīn dēng)

Wo ho ho oh~
Wo ho ho oh~
Wo ho ho oh~
Wo ho ho oh~

每一个人都 功夫在身?
(měi yīgè rén dōu gōngfū zài shēn)
努力寻找气之魂
(nǔlì xúnzhǎo qì zhī hún)
虽然它有时 会让人慌神
(suīrán tā yǒushí huì ràng rén huāngshén)
却点亮 我的心灯
(què diǎn liàng wǒ de xīn dēng)

[Interlude]

Wo ho ho oh~

Everybody was kung fu fighting
Our chi is what we're finding
I know it is a little bit frightening
Oh but it's so enlightening

Before the battle of the fist
Comes the battle of the mind
When you don't know who you are
Just look inside
When we move into the flow
We're always gonna win
So feel the power
And let it in

Wo ho ho oh~
Kung fu fighting
Wo ho ho oh~
What we're finding
Wo ho ho oh~
Little bit frightening
Wo ho ho oh~
So enlightening

Everybody was kung fu fighting
Hee-ya!


Try

Patrick: You always have to do something
Just to show the world that you exist
So you try
You hope they'll see
If on this brand new day you'll look
On the bright side of the same old street
You will see
What you deserve

Jay: Let's go
我说几华里我送别了过去?
(Wǒ shuō jǐ huálǐ wǒ sòngbiéle guòqù)
他们说人生的结局非常的戏剧
(Tāmen shuō rénshēng de jiéjú fēicháng de xìjù)
塞外羌笛孤城马蹄
(Sàiwài qiāngdí gūchéng mǎtí)
在武侠的世界里谁与谁来为敌
(Zài wǔxiá de shìjiè lǐ shuí yǔ shuí lái wèi dí)

合: La la la la la la la la la
黄沙里用竹笔写下的字叫勇气?
(Huáng shā lǐ yòng zhú bǐ xiě xià de zì jiào yǒngqì)

Jay: You just have to try
To be who you are
And you ought to fly
Step into the light

Patrick: And soon you will find
Be yourself
Somewhere deep inside
There's a universe right there waiting to be unlocked
The key lies in looking into yourself

Jay: Oh Try try try try
Just do what is right
You'll fly so high
Let go of the brakes
Be who you are
Be yourself 'cause your power is on

T: When you believe in what you've got
You know you're perfect just be who you are

Patrick: So they don't see what you're made of
But I like you and I know they're wrong
Now it's time
To show them what you got
Let the blue skies cheer you on
Embrace the wind we'll ride along
You're perfect when you're who you are

Jay: 这世界有些事有些人凭感觉?
(Zhè shìjiè yǒuxiē shì yǒuxiē rén píng gǎnjué)
别管他旌旗密布遍野狼烟霜雪
(Biéguǎn tā jīngqí mìbù biànyě lángyān shuāng xuě)
那故事在穿越而我也在翻页
(Nà gùshì zài chuānyuè ér wǒ yě zài fān yè)
一行行做好准备敏锐而直接
(Yī háng háng zuò hǎo zhǔnbèi mǐnruì ér zhíjiē)

T: La la la la la la la la la
爱不灭真实的一切废话全收回?
(Ài bù miè zhēnshí de yīqiè fèihuà quán shōuhuí)

Patrick: You just have to try
To be who you are
Jay: And you ought to fly
Step into the light
Patrick: And soon you will find
Be yourself
Somewhere deep inside
There's a universe right there waiting to be unlocked
The key lies in looking into yourself

Jay: Oh Try try try try
Just do what is right
You'll fly so high
Let go of the brakes

T: Be who you are
Be yourself 'cause your power is on
When you believe in what you've got
You know you're perfect just be who you are

Patrick: You just have to try
To be who you are
Jay: And you ought to fly
Step into the light
Patrick: And soon you will find
Be yourself
Somewhere deep inside
There's a universe right there waiting to be unlocked
The key lies in looking into yourself

Jay: Oh Try try try try
Just do what is right
You'll fly so high
Let go of the brakes

T: Be who you are
Be yourself 'cause your power is on
When you believe in what you've got
You know you're perfect just be who you are


Kung Fu Fighting

Wo ho ho oh~
Wo ho ho oh~
Wo ho ho oh~
Wo ho ho oh~

Everybody was kung fu fighting
Our chi is what we're finding
I know it is a little bit frightening
Oh but it's so enlightening

Before the battle of the fist
Comes the battle of the mind
When you don't know who you are
Just look inside
When we move into the flow
We're always gonna win
So the power that you know
Make sure you let it in

Everybody was kung fu fighting
Our chi is what we're finding
I know it is a little bit frightening
Oh but it's so enlightening

And we keep moving with the flow
If you can walk it, you can roll
Hunger for justice
Let's make it grow
The more you try to take
The less you really have
When it comes to energy
You've got to give it back

Everybody was kung fu fighting
Our chi is what we're finding
I know it is a little bit frightening
Oh but it's so enlightening

Everybody was kung fu fighting
Our chi is what we're finding
I know it is a little bit frightening
Oh but it's so enlightening

Wo ho ho oh~
Wo ho ho oh~
Wo ho ho oh~
Wo ho ho oh~
