Below you can hear Manuel Viloria recite the first two lines of this chant in Tagalog. He also explains in English that kids say this rhyme to tease each other.


Thanks to Manuel Viloria for letting us post his recording of Isa, Dalawa, Tatlo from his podcast about counting in Tagalog. Manuel podcasts about the Tagalog language and about the Philippines.
