The Tagalog word sitsiritsit or chitchiritchit doesn’t really mean anything. It’s just to call someone’s attention. The song in general is one of those traditional ditties that are funny in being nonsensical.
This song compares a woman to a mountain butterfly.
TAGALOG SONG LYRICS
Sa gitna ng daan papagapagaspas
Isang bara ang tapis
Isang dangkal ang manggas
Ang sayang de kola
Isang piyesa ang sayad
May payneta pa siya — uy!
May suklay pa man din — uy!
Nagwas de-ohetes ang palalabasin
Haharap sa altar at mananalamin
At saka lalakad nang pakendeng-kendeng.
Anak (Child) by Freddie Aguilar
