Children's Song

Di pucuk pohon cempaka
Burung kutilang bernyanyi
Bersiul-siul sepanjang hari
Dengan tak jemu-jemu
Mengangguk-angguk sambil berseru
Trilili lililililili

Sambil berlompat-lompatan
Paruhnya slalu terbuka
Digeleng-gelengkan kepalanya
Menentang langit biru
Tandanya suka dia berseru
Trilili lililililili

On top of champakka tree,
A thrush is singing
Whistling all day long,
Not tired at all
Nodding his head while saying
Tri-li-li li-li-li-li-li-li

While hopping around,
His beak is always open
Shaking his head,
Facing the blue sky
It means he likes to say
Tri-li-li li-li-li-li-li-li
