You take a stick of bamboo,
you take a stick of bamboo,
you take a stick of bamboo,
you throw it in the water,
Oh, oh, Hanaah.

You take a stick of bamboo,
you take a stick of bamboo,
you take a stick of bamboo,
you throw it in the water,
Oh, oh, Hanaah.

River, she come down.
River, she come down.

You travel on the river,
you travel on the river,
you travel on the river,
you travel on the water,
Oh, Oh, Hanaah.

You travel on the river,
you travel on the river,
you travel on the river,
you travel on the water,
Oh, Oh, Hanaah.

River, she come down.
River, she come down.

My home's across the river,
my home's across the river.
My home's across the river,
my home's across the water.
Oh, Oh, Hanaah.

My home's across the river,
my home's across the river.
My home's across the river,
my home's across the water.
Oh, Oh, Hanaah.

River, she come down.
River, she come down.
You take a stick of bamboo,
you take a stick of bamboo,
you take a stick of bamboo,
you throw it in the water.
