Here Is The Lyrics To The Popular Filipino Children’s Rhyme “Paruparong Bukid”
PARUPARONG BUKID – There are several children’s rhymes that most Filipinos have already learned from the heart.
In this article, we are going to learn the lyrics to Paruparong Bukid and its translation in English.
Paruparong bukid na lilipad-lipad
Sa gitna ng daan papaga-pagaspas
Isang bara ang tapis
Isang dangkal ang manggas
Ang sayang de kola
Isang piyesa ang sayad
May payneta pa siya — uy!
May suklay pa man din — uy!
Nagwas de-ohetes ang palalabasin
Haharap sa altar at mananalamin
At saka lalakad nang pakendeng-kendeng.
[Repeat from the top]
According to an article from ManWithBlackHat, here is the English translation of the song:
A butterfly from the fields; flitting and floating by;
waiting by the main trail, fluttering in the air.
Sari wrapped around her, sleeves as wide as my palm,
Skirt’s a trifle oversized,2 ends dragging on the ground.
Hair held with a fancy pin. Oh!
Her hand twirling a comb. Oh!
Decorated half-slip, drawing others to peep.
She would face the altar, ogling her own image,
She would come and tease us, hips swaying like a duck.
