The fretted waters,
Do not carry on their current a bundle of firewood !
Those, the members of our families,
Are not with us here guarding Shen.
How we think of them ! How we think of them !
What month shall we return home ?

The fretted waters,
Do not carry on their current a bundle of thorns !
Those, the members of our families,
Are not with us here guarding Pu.
How we think of them ! How we think of them !
What month shall we return ?

The fretted waters,
Do not carry on their current a bundle of osiers !
Those, the members of our families,
Are not with us here guarding Xu.
How we think of them ! How we think of them !
What month shall we return ?
