Ang lindog ko'y hiyas ng pangarap.

The Golden Scarf
Traditional folk song in Occidental Negros and Panay

Now lies the golden scarf of sunset
Accross the splendor of the sky;
Ev'ry cloud is lined with rose.
Like a lovely dancer passing by

In the fields the workers stop
And slowly make their way t'ward home;
The lights of evening lure
From wand'ring all the one who roam.

They run with hooks to pull them down;

Until they come to London Bridge.

Philippines, My Philippines: Filipino Folk Song

I Love my own, my native land
Philippines, my Philippines
To thee I give my heart and hand,
Philippines, my Philippines

The trees that crown thy mountains grand,
The seas that beat upon thy strand,
Awake my heart to thy command ,
Philippines, my Philippines

Ye islands of the Eastern sea,
Philippines, my Philippines
Thy people we shall ever be.
Philippines, my Philippines.

Our fathers lived and died in thee,
And soon shall come the day when we
Lie down with them at God's decree,
Philippines, my Philippines.

Yet still beneath thy ardent sky,
Philippines, my Philippines
More numerous sons shall live and die,
Philippines, my Philippines

In them shall breathe the purpose high,
The glorious day to bring more nigh,
When all may sing without a sigh,
Philippines, my Philippines

Thy past has little known of peace,

From want and war without release,

And happiness for thee increase,

Philippine Hymn: Philippine National Anthem

Philippine Hymn

Land of the morning, child of the sun returning,
With fevor burning, thee do our souls adore.
Land dear and holy, Cradle of noble heroes,
Never shall invaders trample thy sacred shore.

Ever within the skies and through thy clouds
And over thy hills and sea,
Do we behold the radiance,
Feel the throb of glorious liberty.

Thy banner, dear to all our hearts,
Its sun and stars alight,
O never shall its shining  field
Be dimmed by tyrant's might!

Beautiful land of love, O land of light,
In thine embrace 'tis rapture to lie.
But it is glory ever, when thou art wronged,
For us, thy sons to suffer and die.

Lyrics by Jose Palma in Tagalog
English Translation by Hon. Camilo Osias and M.A. L. Lane

Filipino Folk Song: Rice Planting Lyrics

Rice Planting

Planting rice is never fun
Bent from morn till the set of sun,
Cannot stand and cannot sit,
Cannot rest for a little bit.


Planting rice is no fun
Bent from morn till set of sun,
Cannot stand, cannot sit,
Cannot rest a little bit.

Oh, come friends and let us homeward take our way,
Now we rest until the dawn is gray,
Sleep, welcome sleep, we need to keep us strong
Morn brings another workday long.


Oh, my back is like to break,
Oh, my bones with the damp still ache,
And my legs are numb and set
For their long soaking on the wet.


It is hard to be so poor
And such sorrow and pain endure,
You must move your arms about,
Or you'll find you must go without.

Beggars of San Roque: Awit ng Pulubi-Filipino Folk Song

Beggars of San Roque
Filipino Folk Song (English)

In our place along the bay,
Barrio of San Roque,
Met four jolly beggars,
In full festalmood one day;

The cripple gaily danced,
The mute sang a melody
And the blind enjoyed the sight
Gladly listened the deaf.

In that humble little town,
That we proudlt call our own,
People slaughter insects
That we call Niknik;

And the fat of these mites
When melted and drained,
Gave oil that filled
All of nine earthen vats.

In our place along the shore,
Town of Malabon,
There's a certain old man
Whose fire did boil

In a flimsy paper pot,
Set upon a paper stove,
And for fuel, did you know,
He used water cold.

Awit ng Pulubi
Filipino Folk Song (Tagalog)
Doon po sa amin, Bayan ng San Roque
May nagkatuwaang apat na pulubi;
Nagsayaw ang pilay, umawit ang pipi,
Nanood ang bu-lag, nakinig ang bingi.

Doon po sa amin Maralitang bayan,
Nagkatay ng hayop, Niknik ang pangalan,
Ang taba po nito nang maipatunaw
Ang nakuhang langis siyam na ta-payan.

Doon po sa amin, Bayan ng Malabon,
May isang matandang nagsaing ng apoy,
Palayok ay papel, papel pati tungtong
Tubig na malamig ang iginagatong.

The road he did not know.

Mabait na Bata (Filipino

Ang daan kung saan.
May batang sumagot
"Sa banda po riyan."
"Salamat sa iyo." "Walang anuman."
"Natutuwa akong kayo'y matulungan."

Safety First: Filipino Folk Songs lyrics, music score/sheet

Safety First
Maude S. Kinney     Edward B. Birge

On every crowded corner,
Along the busy street,
A traffic cop with outstretch arms,
We daily love to met;

When we should pass he motions,
That's why we watch his arms,
We move just when he tells us,
And so we're safe from harm.

Somewhere in our barrio,
There stands a kapok tree,
He also holds his arms out-straight,
For all the trees to see;

A "traffic cop" he's playing
With tree friends of his own,
Just as we little children
Play "traffic cop" near home.

This Old Man (Knick-Knack Paddy-Whack)
This old man, he played one,
He played knick-knack on my thumb.
With a knick-knack, paddy whack,
Give a dog a bone,
This old man came rolling home.

This old man, he played two,
He played knick-knack on my shoe.
With a knick-knack, paddy whack,

This old man came rolling home.

This old man, he played three,
He played knick-knack on my knee.
With a knick-knack, paddy whack,

This old man came rolling home.

This old man, he played four,
He played knick-knack on my door.
With a knick-knack, paddy whack,
Give a dog a bone,
This old man came rolling home.

This old man, he played five,
He played knick-knack on my hive.

He played knick-knack on my sticks.

This old man, he played seven,
He played knick-knack up in heaven.
With a knick-knack, paddy whack,

This old man, he played eight,
He played knick-knack on my gate.
With a knick-knack, paddy whack,

This old man came rolling home.

This old man, he played nine.
He played knick-knack on my spine.
With a knick-knack, paddy whack,
Give a dog a bone.
This old man came rolling home.

This old man, he played ten.
He played knick-knack once again.
With a knick-knack, paddy whack,
Give a dog a bone.

Lulay: Filipino Folk Song

Lulay - Filipino Folk Song


Anong laking hirap kung pagka-iisipin
Ang gawang umibig sa babaeng mahinhin
Lumuluhod ka na'y
di ka pa mandin pansin

Sa hirap ika'y kanyang susubikin.

Ligaya ng buhay babaeng sakdal inam
Ang halaga niya'y di matutumbasan

Kahinhinan niya'y tanging kayamanan
Listen to the song.

Estudiantina: Filipino Folkdance from Samar

The Estudiantina waltz, or Band of Students Waltz is a musical arrangement, made in 1883, by Emile Waldteufel, which would be his Opus 191, No. 4. Its melody was composed earlier in 1881 by Paul Lacome, with lyrics by J. de Lau Lusignan.
Waldteufel first adapted it to a two-piano version, and later to an orchestral version with which classical music audiences are familiar today. The main melody is universally recognized by Americans of a certain age as the Rheingold Beer jingle, with the words ""My beer is Rheingold the dry beer. Think of Rheingold whenever you buy beer. It's not bitter, not sweet, it's the extra dry treat—Won't you try extra dry Rheingold beer?".
The waltz does not have the extended introduction so often favoured by Waldteufel and begins instead with a brief fanfare which announces the waltz's 3/4 time. The refrain is in D major, and is repeated twice. The 2nd section is in G major, with a quiet repetitive note melody followed by a mid-section D major part. The 3rd part of the arrangement is in D major, with a contrasting B minor part. The final section is back in G major, this time a quieter part than the previous sections, rounded up by an ebullient chorded phrase. The main introduction is played again, as is the refrain. After a brief snatch of the 2nd section melody in a different key, the refrain is repeated again and the waltz ends on a high-spirited note.

Kapantay ay Langit - Filipino Kundiman
Nora Aunor

Minsa'y kayang magtiis
Kahit pa anong pait
Dahil sa pagmamahal
Na kapantay ay langit

Mahal kita, kapantay ay langit sinta
At lagi kong dasal sa Maykapal ang lumigaya ka
Kahit ngayon, mayroon ka nang ibang mahal
Hinding-hindi pa rin ako magdaramdam

Ngunit sinta, sakaling paluhain ka
Magbalik ka lamang
Naghihintay puso ko't kaluluwa
Pag-ibig ko kapantay ay langit hirang
Hindi magbabago kailan pa man

(Instrumental)

Pag-ibig ko kapantay ay langit hirang
Hindi magbabago kailan pa man.

Peers Sky
(English rough translation, unofficial)

I sometimes can withstand any bitterness
because of love peers is sky above.

I love you, peers is sky above,
And I always pray to God for you to be happy.
Although now, you already have another love
Absolutely I'm still not being offended.

However, darling, in case they make you cry
Just come back to me, my heart and soul are waiting.
My love for you, peers is sky above my dear
It will never change forever.

(Instrumental)
My love for you, peers is sky above my dear

Can not stand and can not sit, can not rest for a little bit.

Philippines, the Beautiful - Filipino Folk Songs

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the Fuited plain.

My Philippines, dear Philippines,
God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with  brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!

O beautiful for toilers' hands
Whose labor thou dost bless,
Creating fields and fruitful lands
From barren wilderness,

My Philippines, dear Philippines,
God mend thine ev'ry flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self control
Thy liberty in law.

O beautiful for patriot dream
The seas beyond the years,
Who more than self their country loved,
And mercy more than life!

My Philippines, loved Philippines,
May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness
And ev'ry gain devine.

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
Thine alabaster cities gleam
Undimmed by human tears!

My Philippines, dear Philippines,
God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea

Kung ayaw kang magpautang,
Uubusin ka ng langgam.

Mama, mama, namamangka,
Pasakayin yaring bata,
Pagdating sa Maynila,
Ipagpalit ng manika.

Ale, ale, namamayong,
Pasukubin yaring sanggol,
Pagdating sa Malabon,
Ipagpalit ng bagoong.

(English Rough Translation)
Sitsiritsit, butterfly
Small beetle, big beetle
The woman in the street
Acting like a fighting cock

Santo Niño in Pandacan
Rice Puto in the store.
If you do not want to lend?
You will be eaten by the ants.

Lady, lady with umbrella,
Let the baby be with you
When you get to Malabon
Exchange her by shrimp paste.

Mister, mister, on the boat
Let the child in the boat
When it get to Manila
Trade him for a doll.

Sinisinta Kita-Lyrics
by: Nora Aunor

Kung ang sinta'y ulilain
Sino pa kayang tatawagin
Kung hindi si Neneng kong giliw
Naku kay layo sa piling

Refrain:

Malayo man, malapit din
Pilit ko ring mararating
Wag lamang masabi mong
Di kita ginigiliw

Ginigiliw kitang tunay
Panaginip gabi't araw
Kung di ka natatanaw
Lagi nang nalulumbay

Chorus:

Sinisinta kita,di ka kumikibo
Akala mo yata ako'y nagbibiro
Saksi ko ang langit sampu ng kanduro
Kung hindi kita mahal, puputok ang puso

(Repeat all)

(English Rough Translation)

If the beloved will leave
Who else can be called
No Other than my love Neneng
Oh so far in your arms

Refrain:

Far however, also near
I would try to reach
Do not you just say
I do not love

really in love with you
Night and day I dream of you
If I can't see you
Always been sorrow

 
Chorus:

 
Loveth you, you are motionless
You thought perhaps I was kidding
Heaven is my witness tens of heron
If you do not love you, my heart burst
(repeat all)
