lyrics

哦春光满枝头
花儿含笑羞~
碧水也温柔~
莫愁女前留个影
江山秀美人风流~
啊莫愁啊莫愁
劝君莫忧愁

莫愁湖泛舟
啊秋夜月当头
欢歌伴短笛~
笑语满湖流~
自古人生多风流
何须愁白少年头
啊莫愁啊莫愁
劝君莫忧愁

Walking down by Mo Chou Lake,
you can see the spring
sunshine on the trees.
The flowers are smiling
and the lake water is gentle
Take a picture with the Mo Chou girl,
look at the scenic beauty
of the mountain and river.
The people are enjoying themselves
don't worry, don't worry
I beseech you not to worry.

Rowing a boat on the Mo Chou Lake,
I see autumn moon in the sky.
The happy song is accompanied by flute.
You can hear people talking joyfully
all around the lake.
Since the old days,
life has been about enjoyment.
Why should so much worry
make your hair turn gray?
Don't worry, don't worry
I beseech you not to worry.
