Bahay Kubo – translation:
Nipa hut (little hut with the thatched roof), even though it is small,
The plants it houses are varied
Turnip and eggpant, winged bean and peanut
String bean, hyacinth bean, lima bean.

Leron Leron Sinta – translation:
Leron, leron my love,
papaya seeds above.
He took a bamboo box
to keep the fruits he’d get.
Then as he neared the top,
the entire branch broke up.
“It’s not my lucky day;
I’ll find another way!”

I offer you my love,
my courage suits you fine.
I’ve got me seven knives,
I’m keeping nine more guns.
A journey, I will make
to distant parts beyond.
A plate of noodles is
the foe I will engage!
