West Lake Bamboo Branch Tune (1)
        Yang Weizhen 1296-1370

I warn you not to scale High South Mountain,
You warn me not to scale High North Mountain.
High South shrouded in mist,
High North saturated with rain,
Mixing 
        mist and rain together
                will surely screw you up!
 
Xīhú Zhúzhī Gē (1)
Yáng Wéizhēn 1296-1370

Quàn láng mò shàng Nángāofēng,
Quàn Wǒ mò shàng Běigāofēng.
Nan Gāofēng yún Běigāo yǔ,
Yúnyǔ xiāng cuī chóu shā nóng

Notes:
'Clouds and Rain' in Chinese literature has sexual connotations. See Shennufeng under Mountains.
