Folk Song

Leron Leron Sinta
Buko ng Papaya
Dala dala'y buslo
Sisidlan ng sinta
Pagdating sa dulo'y
Nabali ang sanga
Kapos kapalaran
Humanap ng iba.

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.
