The green island is like a boat
Rocking through the moonlight.
My darling, you are also
floating in the sea of my heart.
Let my song following the breeze,
Blow your curtains open.
Let my love with the flowing water,
Be serenaded to you.
The long shadows of coconut trees
cannot hide my deep love for you.
The clear bright moonlight
brightens my heart even more.
The night on the green island
Has already turned so peaceful.
Why, my darling,
are you still silent without words?
