They buzz about, the blue flies,
Lighting on the fences.
O happy and courteous sovereign,
Do not believe slanderous speeches.

They buzz about, the blue flies,
Lighting on the jujube trees.
The slanderous observe no limits,
And throw the whole kingdom into confusion.

They buzz about, the blue flies,
Lighting on the hazel trees.
The slanderous observe no limits,
And set us two at variance.
