Your scent has lured me since boyhood
In a constant flow of seduction
Oh, what a sweet delight
Your golden center
Protected by wings of white
What glorious scents we will create
My golden showers await!
Drift faster to me, my plum
Let the waters carry your petals down
And quench my deepest roots
Oh, surrender your softness
To my gentle spray
Of branches sheltering, yellows wed
Let’s harness the mighty Mekong!
Straddle her together, and ride
Night after night after night
