Bahay Kubo Lyrics with Guitar Chords

G      D      C    G
Bahay kubo, kahit munti
     G       C        D    G
Ang halaman doon, ay sari sari
G              D       C            G
Singkamas at talong, sigarilyas at mani
C       D      G
Sitaw, bataw, patani.

G         D      C       G
Kundol, patola, upo't kalabasa
    G            C      D       G
At saka mayroon pang labanos, mustasa,
G          D        C         G
Sibuyas, kamatis, bawang at luya
      C      D       D7       G
Sa paligid-ligid ay puno ng linga.

This is how it sounds like, in case anyone is wondering.

I think this is the cutest version posted on YouTube. A cute little girl manages to recite the whole song. I think it’s just adorable how she struggles to pronounce each word.

This is an amazing choir version sung by foreign children. The pronunciation is a little off but it still sounds amazing.
