这原是一首江苏民歌,整理者为何仿(1928-)。1942年冬,当时还是新四军文艺小战士、年仅14岁的何仿到江苏六合八百桥镇金牛山下(今属南京) 采风,被当地的一首歌《鲜花调》优美的曲调所吸引,并在此基础上加工整理出了《茉莉花》。此歌于1957年真正面世,1959年最终定稿。从此传唱大江南 北,甚至远在西方都有根据它改编的各种版本的乐曲。法国著名钢琴家Richard Clayderman、美国著名萨克斯风演奏家Kenny G都曾演奏过此曲的改编版本。
歌词:
好一朵茉莉花,满园花草香也香不过它,我有心采一朵戴,又怕看花的人儿骂。
好一朵茉莉花,茉莉花开雪也白不过它,我有心采一朵戴,又怕旁人笑话。
好一朵茉莉花,满园花开比也比不过它,我有心采一朵戴,又怕来年不发芽。
