The You Tube uploader of the song "Three Years"  stanleypower  has provided the Chinese lyrics:

三年
(电影"一夜风流")
作词:李隽青 作曲:姚敏

想得我肠儿寸断望得我眼儿欲穿
好容易望到了你回来算算已三年.

想不到才相见别离又在明天
这一回你去了几时来难道又三年

左三年右三年这一生见面有几天
横三年竖三年还不如不相见.

明明不该留恋偏要苦苦缠绵
为什么放不下这条心情愿受熬煎

The associated Pinyin:

Sān nián
(diànyǐng"yīyè fēngliú")
zuòcí: Lǐjuànqīng zuòqǔ: Yáo mǐn

xiǎng dé wǒ cháng er cùnduàn wàng dé wǒ yǎn er yù chuān
hǎo róngyì wàng dàole nǐ huílái suàn suàn yǐ sān nián.

Xiǎngbùdào cái xiàng jiàn biélí yòu zài míngtiān
zhè yī huí nǐ qùle jǐshí lái nándào yòu sān nián

zuǒ sān nián yòu sān nián zhè yīshēng jiànmiàn yǒu jǐ tiān
héng sān nián shù sān nián hái bùrú bù xiāng jiàn.

Míngmíng bù gāi liúliàn piān yào kǔ kǔ chánmián
wèishéme fàng bùxià zhè tiáo xīnqíng yuàn shòu áojiān
