Notes

"This song can also be called, 'Leron with the Papaya'." -Huub de Vriend

According to Eric John Carbonell there's a metaphorical meaning of this song: "...the one climbing the tree refers to a student, putting effort into acquiring the 'fruits' of knowledge... But when he/she fails a test, they must try again until they can get it right... and collect them in his 'mind bag'."

Comments

The following translation of the 1st verse is by Eilleen Eugenio:

Leron, Leron, my love
Up a Papaya tree
With him a basket new
To hold the fruit for me
But when he reached the top
The branch broke off
Oh what bad luck
He has to get another one.
