A literal translation of this children's song would be:
One, two, three, four, five (and) six
are the achievement of mathematics.
East, south, west, north, high (and) deep,
are the components of liuji (the six poles).
Because six is the holy number,
there is a lucky 'six-five' (that is, eleven).
Note that the lucky number eleven is 十一, that is,
shíyī or 11, in the denary system, but is 六五, that
is, liùwǔ or 15, in the senary system of the story in which
the song occurs.
