I do love traditional folk songs! Especially if it is a love song like this one!

康定情歌
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

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

任你溜溜的求哟
月亮弯弯
任你溜溜的求哟

Love Song of Kangding
On that liuliude mountain top
Is a liuliude cloud, yo
Looking liuliu down on
Kangding liuliude city, yo
Crescent moon, crescent moon
Kangding liuliude city, yoLi family’s liuliude daughter,
Is very liuliude pretty
Zhang family’s liuliude son,
Loves that liuliude girl, yo
Crescent moon, crescent moon
Loves that liuliude girl, yoFirst he liuliude loves her
For her liuliude beauty, yo
Next he liuliude loves her
Caring for the liuliude home, yo
Crescent moon, crescent moon
Caring for the liuliude home, yo

All the world’ liuliude girls,
Let me liuliude love them, yo
All the world’ liuliude boys,
Let them love liuliude whom they please yo
Crescent moon, crescent moon
Let them love liuliude whom they please yo

How interesting to see Placido Domingo singing in mandarin! Impressive, maestro! Though it does remind me of ABBA singing in English. Perfect pronunciation, sans accent.

A charming young girl singing this on youtube.com. Fun traditional chinese dancing gestures:
