月光光,照地堂 ...

I was attending a seminar on Henan when the lecturer asked me about a song that I learned when I was young. Somehow among all the songs I learned, this song came up.

It reminded me of my younger years, I lived with my maternal Grand mother most of the time. My parents were both working. Together with my Grandmother were 5 uncles and they liked me most of the time. Some were strict while others were caring.

They taught me this song and sang it when ever there is a moon. Somehow I have never mastered the song even until now.

After the lesson, I have decided to search out the complete song. Turned out there are 2 versions. This first version is the one I am used to:

月光光,照地堂,年卅晚,摘槟榔,
槟榔香,摘子姜,子姜辣,买菩达,
菩达苦,买猪腑,猪腑肥,买鱼皮,
鱼皮薄,买菱角,菱角尖,买马鞭,
马鞭长,起屋梁,屋梁高,买张刀,
刀切菜,买箩盖,箩盖圆,买条船,
船沉底,浸死两个番鬼仔,
一个蒲头,一个沉底。 月光光

This one is the one that I get to know from movie, the lyrics is more meaningul:

月光光,照地堂,
虾仔你乖乖睡落床听朝阿妈要赶插秧罗,
阿爷看牛佢上山冈啊虾仔你快高长大罗,
帮手阿爷去看牛羊啊
月光光,照地堂,
虾仔你乖乖睡落床听朝阿爸要捕鱼虾罗,
阿嬷织网要织到天光啊虾仔你快高长大罗,
划艇撒网就更在行月光光,照地堂,年卅晚,
摘槟榔五谷丰收堆满仓罗,
老老嫩嫩喜洋洋啊虾仔你快地眯埋眼罗,
一觉睡到大天光啊
