about

This is a folk song from Inner Mongolia which Yue Yan taught me in 2010 and the peacefulness of the shepherd's life was a welcome contrast to our noisy Shanghai lives at the time.

lyrics

蓝蓝的天空上飘着白云
白云的下面(是那)洁白的羊群
羊群好像是斑斑的白银
洒在草原上
多么爱煞人

Pastoral Song  
In the blue, blue sky, floats a white cloud.
Under the white cloud, stands a flock of sheep.

The flock of sheep are like stained white clouds
Sprinkled on the prairie to attract lovers.
