Sweet-smelling, beautiful, stems full of buds

Fragrant and white, everyone praises

Let me pluck you down

Give to someone else

Jasmine flower, oh jasmine flower

Flower of jasmine, so fair!

Budding and blooming here and there,

Pure and fragrant all do declare.

Let me pick you with tender care,

Sweetness for all to share.

Jasmine fair, oh Jasmine fair.
