about

Mò Li Huā (translated as Jasmine Flower) is a 16th century Chinese folk song that we learned while touring in China.

lyrics

好一朵美丽的茉莉花
好一朵美丽的茉莉花

芬芳美丽满枝桠
又香又白人人夸

让我来将你摘下
送给别人家

茉莉花呀茉莉花

English translation:

A good, beautiful jasmine flower
A good, beautiful jasmine flower
Sweet-smelling, beautiful, stems full of buds
Fragrant and white, everyone praises
Let me pluck you down
Give to someone
Jasmine flower, oh jasmine flower

Pinyin:

hǎo yī duǒ měi lì de mò li huā
hǎo yī duǒ měi lì de mò li huā
fēn fāng měi lì mǎn zhī yā
yòu xiāng yòu bái rén rén kuā
ràng wǒ lái jiāng nǐ zhāi xià
sòng gěi bié rén jiā
mòlihuā ya mòlihuā
