The Song : Mother in my dream (梦中的额吉)

Hear once, never forget ...

Songs from the north China grasslands and big sky nature haven

Uudam is a 13 year old singer from Inner Mongolia. He reached the final of "China's Got Talent" in 2011. This traditional Mongolian folk song is dedicated to his mother whom he lost at 8 (he also lost his father when 10).

Do not pick such pretty flower
she does not want to leave her motherland
Dear mom you hold my hand
whisper about it's secret wishes
You are so far away, my mom
but you hold my hand in my dream

Blowing wind and sand covered my eyes
yet I want to hear from my mom
Where are you? My dear mom
Wish you would kiss me softly
You are so far away, my mom
but you kiss my cheek in my dream.

You want me as brave as an eagle in the sky
You make me strong like flowers in the wind
When I march forward with my head high
I know that you accompany at my side
My dear mom in distance
You hold me tight in my dream.

The Song : My Three Precious (吉祥三宝)

The composer and lyric writer is Bu Ren Ba Ya Er, who is a song writer, singer and an Inner Mongolian TV commentator. He composed the song as a birthday gift to his three-year old daughter. His daughter learned the ballad very quickly and the family began to sing it on various occasions. The inspiration came from his daughter’s fascination about life and nature - she would always ask many questions. It is a celebration of happy family life. This TV appearance is around ten years after the song first became a huge hit in China.

Mum: Oh, in autumn

Mum: Oh, they will grow
Chorus:The flower, the leaf and the fruit, what a happy family they three are!

Dad & Mum:Honey

Daughter: Then me
Dad & Mum:You are just like the budding seed
Daughter: Oh, yep
