小雅 南有嘉鱼

Full video also available at Bilibili: 小雅 南有嘉鱼

One of the three songs designated for drinking party per the code of conduct(周礼), simple yet still with the core values and concerns of Zhou people, no matter how high they were by the endless toasts, they just keep singing it.

Chinese terms for book(卷) and chapter(篇) are reasoned. My argument on characters 烝 , 罩, 汕, 鵻 are explained.

小雅 南有嘉鱼
佚名

南有嘉鱼,烝然罩罩。
君子有酒,嘉宾式燕以乐。

南有嘉鱼,烝然汕汕。
君子有酒,嘉宾式燕以衎。

南有樛木,甘瓠累之。
君子有酒,嘉宾式燕绥之。

翩翩者鵻,烝然来思。
君子有酒,嘉宾式燕又思。
