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 to someone who is stupid and naive. Phu ong is an old word that means rich man. This humorous story wants to lớn tell also about the stupidity of the rich man. This folk-song is quite famous all over the country. Và mothers or grandmothers sing it to lull their little babies to sleep."


Thằng Bờm bao gồm cái quạt mo

Folk Song

(Vietnamese)

Thằng Bờm bao gồm cái quạt mo, Phú ông xin đổi bố bò chín trâu. Bờm rằng: Bờm chẳng lấy trâu. Phú ông xin đổi một xâu cá mè. Bờm rằng: Bờm chẳng lấy mè. Phú ông xin đổi một bè gỗ lim. Bờm rằng: Bờm chẳng lấy lim. Phú ông xin đổi bé chim đồi mồi. Bờm rằng: Bờm chẳng lấy mồi.Phú ông xin đổi nắm xôi, Bờm cười.

Notes

* "This tín đồ 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 và he has a fan (which is very common and very easy to 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 and then when they get some fish, they take a string, put their spoils (fish) together with the string and go to the market or go trang chủ proudly."
