About

This song was played in one of Korean provinces, Gyounggi-Do, when farmers were harvesting rice. However, it is not practiced anymore, since there is no rice field in the province anymore.

Lyrics of the song

Elevat- elevat- elevat- e
Elevat- elevat- elevat- elevat- e 
Elevate over left shoulder, elevate again 
Workers, get motivation, and elevate again
Even though their back hurts, they are smiling and it elevates 
Aunt brings a pot of rice wine because of the sound of elevate 
Elevate, elevate, all rice field is cleared.
