Tanaga: Siopao (March 18, 2005, 0) - My first tanaga. Please help me fix my Tagalog; I might’ve gotten some

pusang aking inangkin

siniopao at kinain?!
iba sana hinain!
Buhayin ang Tanaga!

Nagje-jaywalk na suso
Nakita ko sa Quiapo
Kay bilis nyang tumakbo
Naunahan pa ako

wish I knew the first stanza better, and I wish I could sing well
enough to help even my non-Tagalog-speaking friends appreciate the
beauty of the song.
