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

Yeher wahn wahn shiang ee tiow troon quatien shung.
Troon qua sheen sheen tah ee rahn cheen, ying piau dahng.
Yahng gahng shiang sho she fahng hahng.
Chiah shiao shiao yeen troon wah ahn shung.

Lyrics (Chinese) 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

Translation

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.
