Jasmine Flower

It’s been a while since we learned a song. So let’s learn a very popular Chinese folk song today. Click here for the full lyrics.
茉莉花 (Mòlìhuā) Jasmine Flower
好一朵美丽的茉莉花,
Hăo yì duǒ měilì de mòlìhuā.
What a beautiful jasmine flower,

好一朵美丽的茉莉花。
Hăo yì duǒ měilì de mòlìhuā.
What a beautiful jasmine flower.
芬芳美丽满枝桠,    
Fēnfāng měilì măn zhī yā,
A spray of fragrance and lovely petals,

又香又白人人夸。  
Yòu xiāng yòu bái rénrén kuā.
Everyone loves your snow-white buds.


让我来将你摘下,   
Ràng wǒ lái jiānɡ nĭ zhāi xià,
Let me pick a jasmine flower,

送给别人家。   
Sòng gěi biérén jiā.
And give it to others.

茉莉花呀茉莉花。  
Mòlìhuā ya mòlìhuā.
Jasmine flowers, jasmine flowers.
Why did I pick this song? Not because this is one of my favorite, but because Celine Dion sang this song in Mandarin for a New Year Gala show. If you didn’t already know, February 10 was the Chinese New year and this is the year of snake. Check this post to learn how to say Happy New Year in Chinese language.
And below is a video of Celine Dion singing the Jasmine Flower song.

  1. Very good song and it's much better when you are able to understand the lyrics...I think learning Mandarin is really hard...especially if you want to learn to speak it fluently and also be able to read it...but with a effort you will be able to sing the lyrics of songs like this. If you are in need of another song translation or any other other Chinese translation commission a translation agency.
