When the Qi army played the first drum,
dàng  qí  jūn  dǎ  guò  dì  yī  tòng  gǔ  de  shí  hou  ,

lǔ  zhuāng  gōng  yě  yào  xià  lìng  lèi  gǔ  ,  zhǔn  bèi  chōng  jī  ,

But General Cao Ji stopped it.

Until the third drum was beaten by the Qi army,
yī  zhí  děng  dào  qí  jūn  lèi  guò  dì  sān  tòng  gǔ  shí  ,  

Cao Verdict said to Duke Lu Zhuang: Courage is the key to war.
cáo  pàn  duì  lǔ  zhuāng  gōng  shuō  :  dǎ  zhàng  kào  de  shì  yǒng  qì  ,  

At the first beating of the drum, the soldier's courage was greatly roused,
dì  yī  cì  jī  gǔ  shí  ,  shì  bīng  de  yǒng  qì  dà  dà  zhèn  zuò  ,

The second time was worse, and by the third time,
dì  èr  cì  jiù  yào  chà  yī  xiē  ,  dào  dì  sān  cì  jī  gǔ  shí  , 

The soldier had little courage.
shì  bīng  jī  hū  méi  yǒu  yǒng  qì  le  。

While the enemy has lost his courage, our courage is high,
dàng  dí  rén  yǐ  méi  yǒu  yǒng  qì  shí  ,  ér  wǒ  jūn  yǒng  qì  zhèng  gāo  zhǎng  ,  

This is the best time to win.

With Cao's help, Lu Zhuang Gong won the battle.
