Loose translation of “Ali Mountain Girl”:
Ali Mountain Girl
Beautiful Mountain and green, clean river.
The nature in Ali Mountain is soÂ spectacular.
The girl from Ali Mountain is so gorgeous,
The boy from Ali Mountain is so handsome.
When they met in Ali Mountain, never separate.
Loose translation of “Alcohol, women, money, fame and gain are emptiness”:
Alcohol, women, money, fame and gain are emptiness.
Time flies, life is short,
Only reading the chant of Buddha and have belief in Buddha,
It can reach Nirvana.
