What a beautiful jasmine flower!
What a beautiful jasmine flower!
Buds and blooms are here and there,
Pure and fragrant all do declare.
Let me gather some with tender care,
Sweetness for all to share.
Jasmine fair, oh jasmine fair. (source)

Beautiful jasmine flower
Beautiful jasmine flower
Sweet-smelling, beautiful, stems full of buds
Fragrant and white, everyone praises
Let me pluck you down to give to someone
Jasmine flower, jasmine flower

好一朵美丽的茉莉花

芬芳美丽满枝桠

让我来将你摘下
