Chinese Folk Music

Apropos of absolutely nothing, I was watching CCNTV9, the English channel on Chinese television, this morning over breakfast. They had a delightful cultural program on, showcasing folk music from various minority groups. A charming young girl, in small pigtails and what I took to be a school uniform, sang a lyrical tune, and the English translation appeared at screen's base:

See the bright moon
shining on Grandpa's manure basket

Everyday has its little joys, and that was one of mine.
