lyrics

The first hardship is the ax and the knife
The second hardship is the basket and the rope
Poor father and poor mother
Going up the mountain and down the mountain – there’s nothing we can do

The first worry is the home/family being poor
The second worry is that the child is still young
The third worry is becoming old and unable to work
To face others day to day is so very difficult

“Five-Hole Tune”, Taiwanese folk song from Hengchun, taught by Chen Ying 陳英
