Soleram anak yang manis.
Anak manis, janganlah dicium sayang
Kalau dicium, meralah pipinya.
Satu, dua, tiga, dan empat
Lima, enam, tujuh, delapan,
Kalau tuan dapat kawan baru sayang,
Kawan yang lama ditinggal kan jangan.
Lullaby sweet child.
Sweet child, don't kiss him/her - what a pity
If you kiss, their cheeks will go red!
One, two, three, and four
Five, six, seven, and eight
If you have found.....a new friend, dear
Please, don't forget your old friend.
Thanks and Acknowledgements
