Philippine Folk Song: Paru-Parong Bukid
Here are the lyrics plus sample recording of the Philippine folk song "Paru-parong Bukid" (butterfly).
I'm not sure if this is a "mountain" or "hill" butterfly. It's the kind of butterfly you see when you go to the provincial towns in the Philippines. Anyway...
I was inspired to do this after seeing Mama Lisa's Philippine Children's Songs. I'll probably add more songs to the Speak Tagalog Podcast. All right, all right... here's the song which likens a young maiden to a butterfly:
Paruparong bukid na lilipad-lipad
Sa gitna ng daa'y papagapagaspas
Isang bara ang tapis
Isang dangkal ang manggas
Ang sayang de kola
Isang piyesa ang sayad
May payneta pa siya -- uy!
May suklay pa mandin -- uy!
Nagwas de-ohetes ang palalabasin
Haharap sa altar at mananalamin
At saka lalakad na pakendeng-kendeng.
