Para kang kanaryo sa 'yong pagkanta,
Sa pusong may hapis nakaaaliw ka.
Ang nakakatulad ng tinig mo,
Awit ng batisang napangarap ko.

Like a little bird that sings in the tree,
That pretty little girl is singing a song to me.

Gaily sing the sweetest sing I ever heard.

Ang Pipit by Mabuhay Singer - Filipino Folk Song

Ang Pipit - Filipino Folk Song
Lyrics

La, la la la, la la la
la la la la la la la
la la la la la la

I
May pumukol sa pipit
sa sanga ng isang kahoy
At nahagip ng bato
ang pakpak ng munting ibon

Dahil sa sakit
'di na makaya pang lumipad
At ang nangyari ay nahulog
Ngunit parang taong bumigkas.

Mamang kay lupit
ang puso mo'y 'di na nahabag
'Pag pumanaw ang buhay ko
May isang pipit na iiyak.

la la la, la la la
la la la la la la la
la la la la la la

Repeat all

Instrumental

Dahil sa sakit
'di na makaya pang lumipad
At ang nangyari ay nahulog
Ngunit parang taong bumigkas.

Mamang kay lupit
ang puso mo'y 'di na nahabag
'Pag pumanaw ang buhay ko
May isang pipit na iiyak.

la la la, la la la
la la la la la la la
la la la la la la

La lalala lalala lalalalala
La lalala lalala lalalalala

Dahil sa sakit
'di na makaya pang lumipad
At ang nangyari ay nahulog
Ngunit parang taong bumigkas.

Mamang kay lupit
ang puso mo'y 'di na nahabag
'Pag pumanaw ang buhay ko
May isang pipit na iiyak.

la la la, la la la
la la la la la la la
la la la la la la (fading)

Napahiya Ka Ano? - Filipino Folk Song (Lyrics and Video)

Napahiya Ka Ano
Mabuhay Singers
Lyrics

Sa aming kapitbahay may isang dalaga
Mistulang Pilipina ang taglay n'yang ganda.
Kaya ang aking puso agad nabihag n'ya
Ngunit nang niligawan ito'y sister pala.

Napahiya ka, ano? Napahiya ka!
Kasi papasuk-pasok sa alanganin.
Napahiya ka, ano? Anong say mo?
Kaya't kaunting ingat lang pare ko.

Mayroong isang binata ako'y niligawan
Sa garbo at sa arte siya'y ubod ng yaman
Manding pinasyang minsan akala ko'y high class
Kumain sa palengke iyan ang aming labas.

Napahiya ka, ano? Napahiya ka!
Kasi papasuk-pasok sa alanganin.
Napahiya ka, ano? Anong say mo?
Kaya't kaunting ingat lang mare ko.

(Instrumental)

Kaya't ang gintong-aral sa bawat sinuman
Pasok sa alanganin, sadyang iiwasan
Pagkat ang punu't dulo pag napasubo ka
Bukod pa sa insulto, kakantiyawan ka pa!

Napahiya ka, ano? Napahiya ka!
Kasi papasuk-pasok sa alanganin.
Napahiya ka, ano? Anong say mo?
Kaya't kaunting ingat lang pare ko.

Napahiya ka ano?
Eh, ano! Hindi naman sagad!

I've Been Workin' on the Railroad - Children Favorite Folk Song

I've Been Workin' on the Railroad
Lyrics
I've been workin' on the railroad,
All the live long day.
I've been workin' on the railroad,
Just to pass the time away.
Can't you hear the whistle blowing?
Rise up so early in the morn.
Can't you hear the captain shouting
"Dinah, blow your horn?"

Dinah, won't you blow,
Dinah, won't you blow,
Dinah, won't you blow your horn?
Dinah, won't you blow,
Dinah, won't you blow,
Dinah, won't you blow your horn?

Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah.
Someone's in the kitchen, I know.
Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah
Strumming on the old banjo.

Fee, fie, fiddle-e-i-o.
Fee, fie, fiddle-e-i-o-o-o-o.
Fee, fie, fiddle-e-i-o.
Strumming on the old banjo.Strumming on the old banjo.

I've been workin' on the railroad,
All the live long day.
I've been workin' on the railroad,
Just to pass the time away.
Can't you hear the whistle blowing?
Rise up so early in the morn.
Can't you hear the captain shouting
"Dinah, blow your horn?"
Ohhh, "Dinah, blow your horn?"

May Ibong Kakanta-kanta - Filipino Folk Song

May Ibong Kakanta-kanta
by Mabuhay Singers
Lyrics

I
May ibong kakanta-kanta sa sanga ng punong mangga
Ang awit kay tamis-tamis, ang tunog kay saya-saya
Sa himig na kabit-kabit ang diwa ay mahalaga
Ang buhay mo raw giginhawa rin kung masipag ka.
(Repeat)

II
Ang ibong munti walang anu-ano'y lumipad
Ngunit nag-iwan ng aral na sadyang matapat
Kahit na dukha, madali kang uunlad
Kung masipag kang lagi, may sagana ang bukas.

(Repeat I)
Instrumental

(Repeat I, II and I)

Coda:
May ibon
Kakanta-kanta
sa sanga
May ibon
Kakanta, kakanta-kanta

Perlas ng Silangan - Filipino Patriotic Song

Perlas ng Silangan
by Mabuhay Singers
Lyrics

I
Kung tawagin ang bayan ko ay perlas ng silangan
Sagana na sa yaman may diwa pang minamahal
Ngunit nang dito'y nagtahan iba't-ibang dayuhan
Yamang aking tunay ay nais pang maagaw, ay.....
II
Bayan ko gumising ka at buksan ang 'yong mata
Pag-aralan mong lubos na mahango tayo sa dusa
'Wag sanang magpabaya, magsikap at magtiyaga
At bigyang lunas bayan nating lumuluha
(repeat II)
