Notes

Here's a translation by Harri Saptadi (with some minor changes by Mama Lisa)…

House-Lizard

House-lizard on the wall
Sneakily crawling,
Comes a mosquito…
Zap! Then it's caught.

Here's a translation by Yusi Meinzen (with some minor changes by Mama Lisa)…

LIZARD, LIZARD On The WALL

Lizard lizard on the wall
Slowly and quietly crawling
Here came close a mosquito
Glup...... he caught and ate him.

Mama Sheby wrote, "After visiting your site, just reminded me of an old song that now is a fave song of my 2 y o daughter, Jehan. The version of this song is similar to Lizard on the Wall (USA). I'm not sure about the concise translation, but I'm trying to be precise."

Yusi wrote: "Saya harap mama Lisa tidak lupa lagu ini, karena ini lagu favorit saya pada masa kanak2 dan sekarang menjadi lagu favorit anak saya Rosie. -Yusi Meinzen"

Quick English Translation of Yusi's comment: "I hoped Mama Lisa did not forget this song, because this was my favourite song in childhood and now it became my child Rosie's favorite."
