Maliliit na gagamba
(Philippine Kids Song)


Here's the Tagalog version of The Eentsy Weentsy Spider from the Philippines…

Maliliit na gagamba
The Little Spider
Children's Song
Children's Song

Maliliit na gagamba
Maliliit na gagamba,
Umakyat sa sanga.
Dumating and ulan,
Itinaboy sila.
Sumikat ang araw,
Natuyo ang sanga.
Maliliit na gagamba
Ay laging masaya.

The little spider,
The little spider
Climbed up the branch
The rain came down
Pushed it away.
The sun came up
It dried the branch
The little spider
Is always happy.
