Title: A Beautiful and Mysterious Place
Music by XU Peidong
Lyrics by PAN Qi
Performed by ZHANG Yan

There is a beautiful and mysterious place
Where the Red River flows above the sky
Thousands of elephants are mountains
Flying dragons are rivers
Green waves roll across the forest

The sun is our goal
The moon is our hope
They bring happiness & auspice to all ethnicities
The sun is our goal
The moon is our hope
What a beautiful place
What a mysterious place
It is my lovely hometown, hometown

There is a beautiful and mysterious place
Where the Bronze Drum echoes the ancient love
The Zhuang Brocade weaves out the wonderful hope
The new songs fly all over the land

The mountains are our backs
The rivers are our wings
They carry the affluence of Zhuang & Yao villages
The mountains are our backs
The rivers are our wings
What a beautiful place
What a mysterious place
It is my lovely hometown, hometown
