Lulay is one of the folk songs in Philippines. As the lyrics suggest, it indicates the hardships of loving a modest woman.

Lyrics

Here are the full lyrics uplifted from TagalogLang:

Original Version

Anong laking hirap kung pagka-iisipin
Ang gawang umibig sa babaeng mahinhin

Lumuluhod ka na’y
di ka pa man din pansin

Sa hirap ika’y kanyang susubukin.

Ligaya ng buhay babaeng sakdal inam
Ang halaga niya’y di matutumbasan

Kahinhinan niya’y tanging kayamanan.

English Translation

What a hardship it is to consider
The act of loving a modest woman

You may be on your knees
but she still won’t notice

She’ll test you in hardship

Joy of life, a woman extraordinarily fine
Her worth cannot be equaled

Her modesty is exceptional treasure.

Music Video

Here is how it sounds like in a YouTube video by 
Bayanihan Phillipine Dance Company :

    The song in English had the beginning lyrics, “I was poorly born at the top of a mountain.” which was severely criticized by anthropologist F. Landa Jocano in his motivational lectures.
