Island House Baby (섬집아기)

[Onew] eommaneun moraetgireul

Translation
When mama goes to the mudflats to pick oyster
Baby remains alone watching the house
To a lullaby the ocean sings
His arms as a pillow, baby falls asleep.

While baby is sleeping soundly
Seagull’s crying sound thobs her mind
Half empty oyster basket on her head,
Up the gravel road, Mama comes running home.

Hangul
엄마가 섬그늘에
굴 따러 가면

아기가 혼자 남아
집을 보다가

바다가 불러 주는
자장 노래에

팔베고 스르르르
잠이 듭니다

아기는 잠을 곤히
자고 있지만

갈매기 울음 소리
맘이 설레어

다 못찬 굴바구니
머리에 이고

엄마는 모랫길을
달려 옵니다

엄마는 모랫길을
달려 옵니다
