1. The Golden Mane Horse

       ( Mongolian folksong)

 Running on the Alkhug-a Shili hill

The golden mane horse

Dressing up with the gold and silver

My darling daughter

 

Running on the Khoitu Shili hill

The sheep spotted horse

Dressing up with the silk and brocade

My darling daughter

 

2. Dugurengzhanag-a

            (Mongolian folksong)

 The morning star rises at the night

And shining in the daybreak

Dugurengzhanag-a from the Uzhumuchin Banner

Throwing away the opponents

As same as a champion

 

The wrestling jacket with golden convexes

Is shining on his back

Dugurengzhanag-a at his age of eighteen

Throwing down the opponents

As soon as he catches

 

 3. The Lovely Otter Horse

       (Mongolian folksong)

 The lovely Haligun is a spirited horse

Catch it by holding its feet

The other’s home is an unexpected fierce

Get along with it by your tolerance

 

The clipping Haligun is a spirited horse

Ride on it by pulling the bridle

The strange country is an unexpected fierce

Get along with it by your love

 

 4. The Best Ambler of the Best

                   (Mongolian folksong)

 

The best ambler of the best

Of your red horse

Go forward go forward

With its reins

 

The destination

Is far away

Don’t lose don’t lose

Your courage

 

5. The Antelope Back Dun Horse

            (Mongolian folksong)

 My antelope back dun horse

Known to me by her neighing sound

My beloved darling you

Known to me by your laughing sound

 

My rabbit back dun horse

Known to me by her snorting sound

My beloved darling you

Known to me by your singing sound

 

6. The Manly Brown Hawk

            (Mongolian folksong)

 The manly brown hawk

Strong at the wings

 

In our prime of lives

We have had brave and happy

 

7. The Linnet of Golden Wings

             ( Mongolian folksong)

 The linnet of golden wings

Flies low in the sky

Help for the childhood of mine

Both of my father and mother

 

Wrestlers from Uzhumuchin

Depend on the wrestling jackets

Help for the young age of mine

Both of my father and mother

 

8. The Northern Forest Colt

             (Mongolian folksong)

 The northern forest colt

A strong horse of the golden phoenix

 

As a linnet of the steppe lake

jogging on the grassland

 

9. The Gobi of the Camel Herder

                          Lyrics: Yo. Erdenitogtahu

                           Music: T. Chogtusaihan

 In the light blue space of the cosmic

Scattered with the sacred yellow camels

The golden Gobi of the Butargan-a shrubs

Ai-hu my Gobi

And the old camel herder

 

The precious and beautiful camels

When they born in the world luckily

The Gobi putting the flap of the tunic

And welcomed and received them

 

The grass of the other pastures

May not seem as their food

Grown such a plenty of Butargan-a shrubs

Only for the lovely camels here

 

10. The Ganggang Black Horse

                   (Mongolian folksong)

The beautiful Ganggang black horse

Should be trained carefully

 

Set off to the remote place

Just for visiting my darling you
