So, in order to understand what are the moral values that contained in it, Here is a complete translation of the lyrics lir-ilir
Lir-Ilir, tandurè wus sumilir
(Wake up, the plants already blossomed)
Tak ijo royo-royo tak sengguh temantèn anyar
(They were green as newlyweds)
Cah angon, cah angon, pènèkna blimbing kuwi
(Shepherd, Climb the star fruit tree.)
Lunyu lunyu yo pènèken kanggo mbasuh dodotiro
(Go on and climb the tree, even though it is hard and slippery; to wash your clothes)
Dodotiro, dodotiro, kumitir bedhah ing pinggir
(Your clothes were torn in the side)
Dondomana jrumatana kanggo sèba mengko sorè
(Stitch and reform it together and to worship this evening)
Mumpung padhang rembulanè, mumpung jembar kalanganè.
(While the moon was shining brightly and a lot of free time)
Yo surako surak hiyo.
(Shouted to cheers: yes)
