Overall, this folk song is well recognized to western listeners because of Puccini and is played at many formal situations, kind of like our second national anthem. Mo Li Hua (茉莉花), which means ‘Jasmine Flowers’, is a popular Chinese folk song.
“The petty man is eager to make boasts, yet desires that others should believe in him. He enthusiastically engages in deception, yet wants others to have affection for him. He conducts himself like an animal, yet wants others to think well of him.”
