This is the Malaysian version of Sing the Song of Six Pence but to a different tune...

Lagu tiga kupang
Song of Three Cents
Children's Song
(Malay)
Children's Song
(English)

Lagu tiga kupang
Saku penuh padi
Enam ekor burung
Masuk dalam kuali

Bila sudah masak
Burung nyanyi saja
Tentu sedap makan
Beri pada raja

(Korus )
Raja dalam rumah
Buat kira-kira
Suri dalam rumah
Makan roti gula hey.

Dayang tepi kolam
Mahu jemur tepung
Datang burung hitam
Patuk batang hidung.

Song of three cents
A pocket full of paddies*
Six birds
Go into a frying pan.

When (they are) cooked
The birds just sing
Of course (they are) delicious to eat
Give (them) to the king.

(Chorus )
The king is in the house
(He is) calculating
The queen is in the house
(She is) eating sugar bread hey...

The handmaidens are by the pool
(They) want to dry the flour in the sun
A blackbird comes
(And) pecks at the bridge of a (handmaiden's) nose.
