Zhe lь dao xiang yi zhi chuan,
Zai yue ye li yao ya yao.
Gu niang ya, ni ye zai wo
De xin hai li piao ya piao.
Rang wo de ge sheng sui na wei feng,
Chui kai le ni de chuang lian.
Rang wo de zhong qing sui na liu shui,
Bu duan de xiang ni qing su.
Ye zi shu de chang ying
Yan bu zhu wo de qing yi;
Ming mei de yue guang
Geng zhao liang le wo de xin.
Zhe lь dao de ye yi jing zhe yang de chen jing
Gu niang ya, ni wei shen ma hai shi muo muo wu yь?

Green Island Serenade
Translation by Ed Peaslee

This green island is like a boat,
Floating in the moonlight.
My darling, you too
Are floating in the sea of my heart.
Let the sound of my song follow the breeze,
Blowing open the curtain of your window.
Let my love follow the flowing water,
Endlessly pouring out it's feelings for you.
The long shadows of the palm trees
Cannot conceal my love;
The bright beauty of the moonlight
Casts it's brilliance into my heart.
This green island night is so calm and serene
My darling, why are you silent, saying nothing?
