I always pretend that I don’t know “Bahay Kubo” and act as if I know a better version with classier vegetables.
I, finally, was able to arrange the same song with a newer lyrics:
Bahay kubo kahit munti
Ang halaman doon ay sari-sari
Asparagus, almonds, cherry tomatoes at turnip
Zucchini, Brocolli, Wasabi.
Truffels, brussel sprouts
Atsaka meron pa
Spring Onion, Celery
Capsicum at Spinach
Sa paligid-ligid ay puno ng cauliflower
Soon enough, once I am able to teach this to my kids, I’ll settle for the old version for the meantime.
