Silver Moon Boat (Little Silver Moon)


Singable English Lyrics

Little silver moon rides the sky like a boat,
Past the twinkling stars it will float, lightly float.
Sail little moon boat to the west,
Sail little moon boat while I rest.

Transliteration

Yuè er wān wān xiàng yītiáo chuán guà tiānshàng
Chuán guà xīngxīng tā yīrán qīngyíng piāodàng
Yángfān xiàngzhe xīfāng háng
Zhè xiǎo xiǎo yín chuán duō ānxiáng

Translation – Small Silver Boat

The moon curved like a boat hangs in the sky
Hanging in the stars, it’s still floating lightly,
Sailing towards the west
This little silver boat is very peaceful.

Chinese Lyrics – 小银船

月儿弯弯像一条船挂天上
船挂星星 它依然轻盈飘荡
扬帆向着西方航
这小小银船多安详
