Folk song in the west of Inner Mongolia

It is the New Year in lunar January,

The red paper lantern is hanged in front of the door

When wind comes the gauze lantern turned without stop.

The faster it turns, the more beautiful it is,

Red are the flowers, flowers are red.

Red are the flowers, flowers are red.

Red, red and red,

Green, green and green.

Red and green lanterns make people happy.

 

Wind of spring begins to blow in lunarFebruary.

My beloved girl is standing in front of the door,

Waiting for your beloved man in heart.

Do you know how I wish I can marry you.

Red are the flowers, flowers are red.

Red, red and red,

Green, green and green.

Red and green lanterns make people happy.

 

The moon is round in lunar August.

Watermelons and moon cakes are serviced to the heaven.

How I wish I can see my beloved man in heart.

Redare the flowers, flowers are red.

Red, red and red,

Green, green and green.

How I wish I can see my beloved man in heart.

 

Whenwinter begins in lunar October.

My beloved and I got married.

We promised to live together for ever and ever,

Never separate till the last day of life.

Red are the flowers, flowers are red.

Red, red and red,

Green, green and green.

Never separate till the last day of life.
