(Newser) – Festivities for China's biggest holiday are in full swing, and Warren Buffett is getting in on the fun. The 81-year-old billionaire played ukulele and sang "I've Been Working on the Railroad" for one of the most-watched TV programs in the world—China Central Television's New Year's show. The clip aired on CCTV's website, Bloomberg reports. “Xie xie,” said Buffett as he finished, Chinese for "thank you." The Oracle of Omaha is a significant investor in Chinese carmaker BYD Co. In Beijing, meanwhile, raucous fireworks went off at midnight.
