Ma Tulug Na Bunso

Ma tulug na bunso ng buhi // sleep the youngest of the living

hindi kita ii wanan // I will not leave you

ibi bili kita // I will buy you

kahit ano laru an // whatever the game is

bucas patsikat ng araw // tomorrow the sun will rise

oo pung he he lika mara an // yes, it’s like that

sigue sig mong pag ma mahal // keep going if you love

oo pung mahimbing ka // yes, you are sleepy

at wag na puko // and don’t give up

sigue sig mong pag ma we tan // keep going when we don't know
