Two children's songs!

After "No smoking", another couple songs with cheerful tunes. These two happen to be children's songs which my mother-tongue teacher introduced to the whole class as per the year 3 list here, they're titled 两只老虎 | Liǎng zhī lǎohǔ | Two tigers and 拔萝卜 | Bá luóbo | Pulling turnips, and you'll almost surely recognize the tune of number 1 :). I translated number 1 on 28/3/19, and number 2 on 29/3, or so I thought, then I found there were extra verses, so on 30/3 I finished the job. Let's see them!

Two twin tigers
