康定情歌

Kangding Love Song (Kang Ding4 Qing2 Ge)
 
This is a popular Chinese folk song.  Kangding is a remote town in Western Sichuan, in a region mainly inhabited by Tibetans. The town is surrounded by majestic mountains. One of the mountains is famous because of this song.  It’s called Paoma Shan (Horse race mountain). Hope to visit the place.
 
Song Zuying and Placido Domingo sang a duet of this song, with Lang Lang on the piano, in a concert at  Beijing last year.

      

 
跑马溜溜的山上,一朵溜溜的云哟。

端端溜溜的照在,康定溜溜的城哟。
月亮弯弯,康定溜溜的城哟!

李家溜溜的大姐,人才溜溜的好哟。
张家溜溜的大哥,看上溜溜的她哟。
月亮弯弯,看上溜溜的她哟!

一来溜溜的看上,人才溜溜的好哟。
二来溜溜的看上,会当溜溜的家哟。
月亮弯弯,会当溜溜的家哟!

世间溜溜的女子,任我溜溜的爱哟。
世间溜溜的男子,任我溜溜的求哟。
月亮弯弯,任你溜溜的求哟!
