Between heaven and earth there is a hero’s spirit
A thousand years will be awe-inspiring
Carved up China into three pieces
Would recover Five Zhu Copper Cash of Han Dynasty
Chose a great premier to found your kingdom
But your sun wasn’t like your wise and able
How sad were the quondam geishas of Shu!
Came to dance before Wei Palace
