Haw! Haw! De Carabao!

De Batuten!

The children sing.

 

carabaoNo carabao sings

Because they can  unassailable sing

The “nguah-nguah” way.

 

Haw! Haw! De Carabao!

De Batuten!

The children sing.

 

No Carabao complains.

Because they are tagged as the beast of burden.

No matter what. No matter how.

They knew, they are carabaos.

 

Haw! Haw! De Carabao!

De Batuten!

The children sing.

 

They re so proud being so.

The undying carabaos they are far more better than a hoe.

Without them, the lowly farmers cannot sow.

Carabao helps the farmers their plants to grow.

 

Haw! Haw! De Carabao!

De Batuten!

The children sing.

 

Carabaos and farmers are forever tied to the farm they till

So that everybody should have more meals.

 

Their yoke is heavy.

In their priceless labor, they feed the hungry

That is why they deserve a rest under the Mango tree.
