​Put, pasaa, angrit, dai Mai
That is do you, speak, Eng-lish, in Thai
Put, is, speak or talk,
pasaa, just is
Language, angrit, is
Simply English

Dai is can, and mai, is for, a question
Farang, sei, is France
Put pa-, saa fa, rang sei dai

Mai Krab, he will ask
Can you, speak French, just like that
And Put, pasaa Thai,
Dai mai, ka, do you speak, Thai
