This paper examines the traditional musical dance of the Tang Dynasty, ‘Baizhu-Wu’, and its lyrics. ‘Baizhu-Wu’ is ‘Qingshang-Musical Dance’, which is declining due to foreign musicals, but the song is still sung by the public. When some writers of the early Tang Dynasty write the lyrics, they reject the ‘SishiBaizhu-song’ of the Southern dynasties, and inherit the ‘Zhongyuan Baizhu-song’ in the Wei and Jin periods.
Therefore, Tang Dynasty’s ‘Baizhu-song’ uses three lines of seven characters to a line in terms of form, and sometimes combines the 3･3･7 verse pattern. This is the aspect of early folk songs. In terms of content, it connects Wu Dynasty’s famous beauty, Xishi with the fall of the Wu Dynasty and expresses a criticism of this. This is the aspect of the ‘Baizhu-song’ in Tang Dynasty, which is because it inherited the ‘Zhongyuan Baizhu-song’. In this way, we can reveal the new aspect of lyrics literature through musical dance.
