Lyrics – Transliteration

(Chinese folk song)

Chit chia eh hoay chun kia tee Hokkien.
Kia kau tee poa hai chut or ean.

Ah Hock ee chin sooi goa boh gian.
Kamgoan khee chia chye khee seng tian.

English Translation

The only information I have is it is about a rocking boat, and is often sung as a lullaby.
