Ibu Jari
The Finger Song
Finger Play
(Bahasa Indonesia)
Finger Play
(English)

Ibu jari pertama,
Telunjuk jari kedua!
Yang tengah jari ketiga,
Keempat memakai cincin
Yang kecil jari kelinking
Tra-la-la-la-la-la-la-LA!
Tri-li-li-li-li-li-li-LI!
Tra-la-la-la-la-la-la-LA!
Tri-li-li-li-li-li-li-li-LI!

Thumb is finger number one,
Pointer is finger number two.
The middle one is finger number 3,
The fourth one wears a ring.
The little finger is called a pinkie.
Tra-la-la-la-la-la-la-LA! (roll hands forward, clap!)
Tri-li-li-li-li-li-li-LI! (roll hands backward, clap!)
Tra-la-la-la-la-la-la-LA! (roll hands forward, clap!)
Tri-li-li-li-li-li-li-li-LI! (roll hands backward, clap!)
