The "Jinkli Nona", a song about a man who wishes to wed a beautiful woman, is one of the most well known Eurasian folk songs in the community in Singapore. It is often accompanied with the Branyo, a classic Eurasian folk dance.

The term "Jinkli" is believed to come from the word "Sinhalese", which transitioned into the word "Chingalee" and ultimately to "Jinkli".

Jinkli Nona

Jinkli nona, jinkli nona
yo kereh kazah
kaza nunteng porta nona
klai logu pasah?

Teng kantu teng
kantu teng falah nunteng
amor, minya amor
amor minya korasang

O nona, minya nona
Ki lonzi bos ta bai
Si yo nungka tomah kon nona
Nungka filu di mai pai

O nona, minya nona
O nona minya korasang
si nona muitu bemfeta
yo jah kai na-a-faesang

Pedra, linya, agu
diamanti di kualidade
jah beng na minya brase
pretu, brangku minya bontadi

O nona, minya nona
yo ta bai pa Telok Mas
inkontrah
floris cherozu
cherah, cherah, kereh mas

O nona minya nona
sa kabelu restah chang
akeli mesmu kabelu
beng marah yo sa korasang

O nona minya nona
yo ta bai fikah soldadu
si teng bos sa furtuna
yo birah fikah kazadu.
