about

This is a Tibetan style song, though it's not traditional, it is written in 2002 by Zhang Qian Yi 张千一.  The lyrics, however, are from a love poem written by the 6th Dalai Lama who had a reputation for drinking, enjoying the company of women and writing love songs.

lyrics

在那东山顶上 
升起白白的月亮 

姑娘年轻的面容 
出现在我的心上 
姑娘年轻的面容 
出现在我的心上 

啊依拉依拉依嗦 
玛杰啊玛 
啊依拉依拉依嗦 
玛杰啊玛 

如果人们不相见 
人们就不会相恋 

如果人们不相知 
怎会受着相思的熬煎 
如果人们不相知 
怎会受着相思的熬煎 

啊依拉依拉依嗦 
玛杰啊玛 
啊依拉依拉依嗦 
玛杰啊玛 

On the Eastern Mountain Peak

On the eastern mountain peak, the white moon is rising.
A young girl's face is in my heart.
Ah, if people do not meet, they will not fall in love.
If people do not know each other, how can they bear the thought of suffering?
