Lyrics:

人说山西好风光
地肥水美五谷香
左手一指太行山
右手一指是吕梁
站在那高处
望上一望
你看那汾河的水呀
哗啦啦啦流过我的小村旁
杏花村里开杏花
儿女正当好年华
男儿不怕千般苦
女儿能锈万种花
人有那志气永不老
你看那白发的婆婆
挺起那腰板
也象十七八

Main meaning of the song:

People said that
there is a wonderful scene in Shanxi,
soil is fat,
water is beautiful,
corn is sweet-smell.
It is Taihang mountain on the left,
It is Lǚliang mountain on the right.
When you stand on the high place to see up,
you can see the water from Fen River
is singing to flow by my little village.

Apricot flowers are blooming
in the Apricot Village,
We are just at the golden ages,
young boys do not dare to stand
hundreds' hard work,
young girls can embroider
ten thousand's flowers.
We will not get older
for we have dreams always.
You see the grandmothers with white hair,
when they are straight their wastes,
they are just like only 17 or 18 years old...
