Mage podi thara
My Little Duck
Mage podi thara – Pip Pip gewa
Hota rathu patai – anga sudu patai
Ara ara pena – seethala pokune
Ath thatu salamin – peena peena newa.
My little duck shouted "Pip Pip".
Its beak is red and its body is white.
It was bathing in the pond there, with cool water
While flapping its wings and swimming.
