Pen pen de sarapen,
de kutsilyo de almasen
Haw, haw de carabao batutin

Sipit namimilipit ginto’t pilak
Namumulaklak sa tabi ng dagat.

Sayang pula tatlong pera

Ako ay May Lobo (Kids Song)

 TAGALOG SONG LYRICS ENGLISH TRANSLATION
Ako ay may lobo
Lumipad sa langit
‘Di ko na nakita
Pumutok na pala
 
I had a balloon
It flew to the sky
Never saw it again
Turns out it popped
Sayang ang pera ko
Binili ng lobo
Sa pagkain sana
Nabusog pa ako
My money went to waste
Buying that balloon
If I had bought food
I would be full instead.

Alimango sa dagat

(nonsense chant)

Crab in the sea,
big and delicious!

So difficult to catch
because it bites.

Saranggola ni Pepe, Video & Lyrics

Saranggola ni Pepe (translation: Jose’s Kite) is a popular Tagalog folk song in the Philippines. The Filipina singer heard here is Celeste Legazpi.

 

TAGALOG LYRICS

Matayog ang lipad ng saranggola ni Pepe
Matayog ang pangarap ng matandang bingi
Umihip ang hangin, nawala sa paningin
Sigaw ng kahapon, nilamon na ng alon
Malabo ang tunog ng kampanilya ni Padre
Maingay ang taginting, rosaryo ng babae
Nay… nay… nay… nay…

Matayog ang lipad ng saranggola ni Pepe
Matayog ang pangarap ng matandang bingi
Hinuli ang ibon, pinagsuot ng pantalon
Tinali ng pisi, hindi na nagsinturon
Dumaan ang dyipni at gumuhit pa sa kalye
Mauling ang iniwang hindi na tinabi
Nay… nay… nay… nay…

Matayog ang lipad ng saranggola ni Pepe
Matayog ang pangarap ng matandang bingi
Pinilit umawit, ang naglaro’y isang ingit
Lumuha ang langit at ang mundo ay nanliit
Kumakaway sa bakod ang anghel na nakatanod
Sumusuway sa utos, puso’y sinusunod
Nay… nay… nay… nay…

Sampung mga daliri
Kamay at paa
Dalawang mata

Ilong na maganda

Masarap kumain
Dilang maliit nagsasabi
Huwag kang magsinungaling!
