Leron, Leron sinta (English translation)

Leron-leron my love

English translation by Roberto Verzola

Leron, Leron sinta

Traditional Filipino folk song

Leron, leron my love,

papaya seeds above.

He took a bamboo box

to keep the fruits he’d get.

Then as he neared the top,

the entire branch broke up.

“It’s not my lucky day;

I’ll find another way!”

-

I offer you my love,

my courage suits you fine.

I’ve got me seven knives,

I’m keeping nine more guns.

A journey, I will make

to distant parts beyond.

A plate of noodles is

the foe I will engage!

Leron, leron sinta

buto ng papaya

dala-dala’y buslo

sisidlan ng bunga

pagdating sa dulo

nabali ang sanga

kapos kapalaran

humanap ng iba!

-

Ako’y ibigin mo,

lalaking matapang

Ang sundang ko’y pito,

ang baril ko’y siyam.

Ang lalakarin ko’y

parte ng dinulang.

Isang pinggang pansit,

ang aking kalaban!

    I have no idea. I’ve always thought Leron, Leron sinta was a folk song.
