Sa Ugoy ng Duyan (To the Cradle's Sway)

Composer: Lucio San Pedro. Lyrics by Levi Celerio



ORIGINAL TAGALOG LYRICS

Sa Ugoy ng Duyan

Sana'y di magmaliw ang dati kong araw
Nang munti pang bata sa piling ni Nanay
Nais kong maulit ang awit ni Inang Mahal
Awit ng pag-ibig habang ako'y nasa duyan

Sa aking pagtulog
na labis ang himbing
Ang bantay ko'y tala
Ang tanod ko'y bituin

Sa piling ni Nanay
Langit ang buhay
Puso kong may dusa
Sabik sa ugoy ng duyan mo, Inay

To The Cradle's Sway

I hope my former days don't fade away
When I was a young child in Mom's arms
I want Beloved Mother's song to repeat
Song of love while I was in the cradle

In my sleep
that's very peaceful
The planets guard me
The stars watch over me

In Mom's arms
Life was like heaven
My heart that's hurting
Yearns for the sway of the cradle by you, Mom
