"This is a well known children's song in Thailand and is taught to children in primary school. The melody is adapted from a Thai classical piece called พม่าเขว 'Phama Khwee'. The word น้อง (nong) in line 2 is a form of address or pronoun used with someone younger than the speaker." -Guava in Thailand
