about

This is a Han ethnic folk song from Shanxi Zuo Quan.

lyrics

村里头美不过小白船,阿青哥在船上扬白帆。
白过了天上的白云朵,白过了地上的白牡丹,
阿青哥哥的小白船。
爱不够阿青哥的小白船,它时常停泊在我家门前。
三月里送来了报春花,九月里送来了艳阳天,
我心中的那小白船。
那一天又坐那小白船,心里话像河水流不断,
藤盘树说到那树盘藤, 月弯弯再说到月圆圆。
甜甜蜜蜜的小白船.

A Qing Ge Ge

Beloved brother hanging from the white mast of the sail boat.
Even whiter than the clouds in the sky. Whiter than the white peony.
Beloved brother, love is not enough.
The white boat is often parked in front of my house.
March sends primroses, September, sunny days.
In my heart is the little white boat.
