Lyrics - Malay

(Malaysian folk song)

Eh wau buleh*, eh wau buleh,
Eh wau buleh teraju tigo*,
Eh wau, eh wau, eh wau buleh,
Eh wau buleh teraju tigo*

Ala eh wau, eh wau buleh
Eh wau buleh teraju tigo,
Ala eh wau, eh wau buleh
Eh wau buleh teraju tigo

*This website says “buleh” and “tigo” are the pronunciation of a northern dialect, the Kelantanese version. “Bulan” and “tiga” are the words in formal Malay. (source)

Translation – Moon-Kite

Eh kite moon, eh kite moon,
Eh kite moon with your three points*,
Eh kite, eh kite, eh kite moon,
Eh kite moon with your three points

Ala eh kite, eh kite moon
Eh kite moon with your three points,
Ala eh kite, eh kite moon
Eh kite moon with your three points

*3 strings hanging from the 3 points, which form one string at the bottom (source).
