There is a vine in front of the door,
ā  mén  ā  qián  yī  kē  pú  táo  shù,

The tree sprouted green shoots,
ā  nèn  ā  nèn  lǜ  de  gāng  fā  yá ,

The snail carries the heavy shell,
wō  niú  bēi  zhe  nà  chóng  chóng  de  ke  ya, 
Step by step, climb the ladder,
yī  bù  yī  bù  de  wǎng  shàng  pá,  

Two orioles on a tree,
ā  shù  ā  shàng  liǎng  zhǐ  huáng  lí  niǎo,
They were laughing at it,
ā  xī  ā  xī  hā  hā  zài  xiào  tā,
The grapes are still very early in ripening,
pú  táo  chéng  shú  hái  zǎo  de  hěn  na,

Don't laugh,

It'll be ripe when I climb on it.
