There are quite a few variations to the lyrics of this song.
I planted a piece of ginger.
Tumubo ay saging, namunga ng mangga.
It grew as a banana, fruited a mango.
Nang aking pitasin, hinog na papaya.
When I picked it, a ripe papaya.
Bumagsak sa lupa, magandang dalaga.
Fell on the ground, a beautiful lass.

TAGALOG SONG LYRICS
de kutsilyo de almasen
Haw, haw de carabao batutin
Sipit namimilipit ginto’t pilak
Namumulaklak sa tabi ng dagat.
Sayang pula tatlong pera
Sayang puti tatlong salapi
This is a very fun-sounding children’s song from the Philippines.
