counting songs

From Lojban
Jump to: navigation, search

based on the japanese number counting song, which goes:

itchi ni no san no shi no ni no go

san itchi shi no ni no shi no ni no go

lojban version:

pa re no shi no vo no mu no xa

ze bi no so no pa no re no shi

vo mu no xa no ze no bi no so

sung like this:

pare- no shi- no vo no mu no xa[[sudden stop|sudden stop]]

zebi- no so- no pa no re no shi[[sudden stop|sudden stop]]

vomu- no xa no ze no bi no so[[sudden stop|sudden stop]]

and, of course, the classic:

pa, a word, it's french for not

re, a drop of golden sun

ci, it's her, and noone else

vo, the start of a great shock

mu, a word, it's french for soft

xa, the start of a great laugh

ze, the number after xa

bi, the letter after A

so, a needle pulling thread

that would bring us back to pa
