Thằng bờm có cái quạt mo

Luu Thuy, the contributor of the following folk song, wrote me: "Phu ong is a special imaginary character in folktales. He is a little fellow who is very dull. People often give the name Bom khổng lồ someone who is stupid và naive. Phu ong is an old word that means rich man. This humorous story wants khổng lồ tell also about the stupidity of the rich man. This folk-tuy vậy is quite famous all over the country. And mothers or grandmothers sing it to lớn lull their little babies to lớn sleep."


Thằng Bờm tất cả mẫu quạt mo

Folk Song

(Vietnamese)

Thằng Bờm tất cả chiếc quạt mo, Phụ ông xin đổi ba trườn chín trâu. Bờm rằng: Bờm chẳng lấy trâu. Prúc ông xin đổi một xâu cá mè cổ. Bờm rằng: Bờm chẳng lấy mè. Phụ ông xin đổi một bè gỗ lyên ổn. Bờm rằng: Bờm chẳng lấy lyên ổn. Prúc ông xin đổi con chyên ổn đồi mồi. Bờm rằng: Bờm chẳng lấy mồi.Phú ông xin đổi nắm xôi, Bờm cười.

Notes

* "This người was very common in the past. In fact, it is a part of a leaf from a tree called areca tree. In this case, the story is funny because he is only a poor guy and he has a tín đồ (which is very common and very easy to lớn get), but Phu Ong, the rich but stupid man, absolutely wants to lớn get it by exchanging for it anything he can afford."** "In the past, even now, some fishers go fishing & then when they get some fish, they take a string, put their spoils (fish) together with the string và go lớn the market or go trang chủ proudly."
