Si Filemon


"Si Filemon" is a popular  Visayan folk song

Si Filemon, si Filemon,
Namasol sa karagatan.

Nakadakop, nakadakop,
Sang isda nga tambasakan,
Guin baligya, guibaligya,
Sa tindahan nga guba.

Ang iya nakuha, ang iya nakuha 
guin bakal sang tuba.




English translation

Filemon, Filemon
He went out fishing
He caught, he caught
A fish called tambasakan
He sold it, he sold it
In the old market 
From the sale, he got
from the sale he got
He bought the native wine *tuba.


*Tuba - native coconut wine
