Paruparong Bukid

Paruparong bukid na lilipad-lipad
Sa gitna ng daan papagapagaspas
Sambara ang tapis
Sandangkal ang manggas
Ang sayang de kola
Sang piyesa ang sayad

May payneta pa siya — uy!
May suklay pa mandin — uy!
Nagwas de-ohetes ang palalabasin
Haharap sa altar- uy!
At mananalamin
At saka lalakad na pakendeng-kendeng.


Butterflies from the meadow
See how they flutter
In the middle of the street
They show off their finery
Wrap-cloth a yard long,
Sleeves the length of an outstretched palm,
Skirt with a train
as long as a bolt of cloth

She wears an ornamental comb,
And adds another one still, oh!
Petticoat with eyelets she displays
She looks at the altar, oh!
and gazes at the mirror
And then she walks,
swaying her hips to and fro.
