This song is sung to the tune of "Atin Cu Pung Singsing".

Notes

Manuel Viloria sent an alternate translation:

Ako ay may lobo - I have a balloon
lumipad sa langit - Which flew to the sky
di ko na nakita - I no longer saw it
pumutok na pala - It had burst after all.

Sayang ang pera ko - I wasted my money
pambili ng lobo - (The money) used to buy the balloon
kung pagkain sana - If it were spent on food instead
nabusog na ako - I would have been full (or sated).
