  Brother Singing Folk Songs in the Hill

  (Tongue Twisters)

  Brother is singing folk songs in the hill

  I am knitting silks at home

  You sing so well

  I can do nothing with hands

  Nothing with feet, I can’t tread the pedal

  Pull the cavel, nor shuttle the shuttle

  But knit silks with tears

  Mother condemns me little naughty child

  For I’m listening to folk songs instead of knitting silks

  She says you are a Casanova of a rich and influential family

  Dropping out of school and singing folk songs here

  And seeking carnal pleasure everywhere

  Mother you should not say so

  As we are both young

  I am eighteen now

  Twenty after two years

  And will marry to someone after three or four

  No one will come to you then

  Letting your flagstones moss

  (Sung by Xu Zhiqing, collected by Zhong Qingming)

  Pasting papers of Screen Window are quadrate

  Pasting papers of screen window are quadrate

  I see a brother outside

  He seems to be a greedy man of flowers

  Why not entering my room

  For I have not hung the war-free card

  Pasting papers of screen window are thin

  I see a tender and pretty lotus in the room

  I’m not interested in the pretty lotus

  Do not buy fields beside the harbor

  As you can only yell the god when flood comes

  (Sung by Wu Guorong, collected by Liu Yaming)
