This lullaby is sung in English in the USA and is called "Little Silver Moon Boat". It's said to come from this Chinese lullaby. We're not sure if the song is still well-known in China. If anyone knows anything about the original song, please email us. Thanks! Mama Lisa

You can hear the English version of this song, followed by the Chinese version and then the English again in the video below.

Here's the English version:

Little silver moon rides the sky like a boat,
Past the twinkling stars it will float, lightly float,
Sail little moon boat to the west,
Sail little moon boat while I rest.
