Sister Moon, what melancholy in an autumn night!

On earth, Iím now tired of living again and again.

In the Palace is there someone sitting beside you?

Please take and put meon the branch of banian tree.

Having a boyfriend to chat, should not you worry

Together wind and clouds, our life becomes joyful.

And then every year, the mid-autumn night comes

Lean on each other, look down on the earth laughing.
