桃花坞里桃花庵,桃花庵下桃花仙。  桃花仙人种桃树,又摘桃花卖酒钱。

酒醒只在花前坐,酒醉还来花下眠。  半醒半醉日复日,花落花开年复年。

但愿老死花酒间,不愿鞠躬车马前。  车尘马足富者趣,酒盏花枝贫者缘。

若将富贵比贫贱,一在平地一在天。  若将贫贱比车马,他得驱驰我得闲。

世人笑我太疯癫,我笑他人看不穿。  不见五陵豪杰墓,无花无酒锄作田。

晚钟敲响从城市那边  飞来宁静的翅膀
有家的人请回你们的家  没家的人请走进那夕阳

晚钟敲响从夕阳的眼中  流出宁静的凄凉
爱我的人请过来一起唱  恨我的人请躲开那月光

晚钟敲响从新月的梦里  落下宁静的忧伤
生者依旧习惯地擦去泪水  逝者已矣请返回你们的天堂

晚钟敲响从天堂上面  传来星空的回荡
醒来的人请守好你们的梦想  沉睡的人请把一切遗忘
