Bahay Kubo (Folk Song)

Bahay Kubo (Nipa Hut)

Bahay kubo, kahit munti
Ang halaman doon ay sari-sari.
Singkamas at talong, sigarilyas at mani
Sitaw, bataw, patani.

Kundol, patola, upo’t kalabasa
At saka mayroon pang labanos, mustasa,
sibuyas, kamatis, bawang at luya
sa paligid-ligid ay puro linga.

Nipa Hut, though very modest… Many plants over there… Jicama and eggplant, winged beans and peanuts, long beans… gourds and squash… and also radishes, mustard, onions, tomatoes, garlic and ginger… all around are sesame!
