Can anyone recognise the song in this mp3 excerpt?

There's something classic and familiar about it, but I can't find a way to track it down. It was playing in the background to a radio programme about Peking Opera performer 胡文阁, though the song itself sounds like a very nostalgic 80s ballad. 

 

I'd be very grateful for any suggestions or pointers!

 

Many thanks

The name of this song is  思念, I post the lyrics below for reference.

你从哪里来,我的朋友好像一只蝴蝶飞进我的窗口,
不知能作几日停留,
我们已经分别的太久太久。
你从哪里来,我的朋友,
你好像一只蝴蝶飞进我的窗口,
为何你一去,别无消息,
只把思念积压在我的心头,
你从哪里来,我的朋友,
好像一只蝴蝶飞进我的窗口。
不知能作几日停留,
我们已经分别的太久太久,
你从哪里来,我的朋友,
你好像一只蝴蝶飞进我的窗口,
难道你又要,匆匆离去,
又把聚会当成一次分手。

Wonderful! Thank you all so much, particularly to @Publius who seems to have pit @feihong to the post on this one (I did get in touch with her after @abcdefg's kind suggestion!). Very thankful for everyone's input. 

 

For future reference, the song seems indeed to date back to the (late) 80s. Recordings available online are by both 范琳琳 and 毛阿敏 (who performed it at the 1988 春晚).
