Chinese Children’s Songs: Pulling A Turnip 拔蘿蔔

拔蘿蔔 ba luobo
This song is a delight for young children to act out. The simple storyline never fails to enchant the younger crowds. I still remember fondly acting out the plot of this song on stage when I was 5 years old and in Pre-school back in Malaysia.

拔羅蔔
拔蘿蔔,拔蘿蔔 嘿唷 嘿唷
拔蘿蔔 嘿唷 嘿唷 拔不動
老太婆,快快來 快來幫我們拔蘿蔔

拔蘿蔔 拔蘿蔔 嘿唷 嘿唷
拔蘿蔔 嘿唷 嘿唷 拔不動
小姑娘,快快來 快來幫我們拔蘿蔔

拔蘿蔔,拔蘿蔔 嘿唷 嘿唷
拔蘿蔔 嘿唷 嘿唷 拔不動
小花貓,快快來 快來幫我們拔蘿蔔

拔蘿蔔,拔蘿蔔 嘿唷 嘿唷
拔蘿蔔 嘿唷 嘿唷 拔不動
大家來,拔蘿蔔 蘿蔔馬上就拔出來

Pulling A Turnip
Pull a turnip, pull a turnip. Hey Yo Hey Yo
Pull a turnip. Hey Yo Hey Yo it would not budge
Old lady, come here quick! Quickly help us pull this turnip

Pull a turnip, pull a turnip. Hey Yo Hey Yo
Pull a turnip. Hey Yo Hey Yo it would not budge
Little girl, come here quick! Quickly help us pull this turnip

Pull a turnip, pull a turnip. Hey Yo Hey Yo
Pull a turnip. Hey Yo Hey Yo it would not budge
Little flower cat, come here quick! Quickly help us pull this turnip

Pull a turnip, pull a turnip. Hey Yo Hey Yo
Pull a turnip. Hey Yo Hey Yo it would not budge
Everyone come, to pull this turnip. We will unearth this turnip right away

Whoa! This translation is an example of me committing Chinglish. I foolishly thought I was immune to it, obviously I had never been put to the test. Now here I am, a Chinglish speaker! What is Chinglish? Click here.
