Is there anyone who knows the full lyrics of "Hopiang di mabili, may amag sa tabi"?
I know that it is set to the tune of "La donna è mobile" and it is a popular ditty in the Philippines. Every time I google it, I just find Articles about Hopia.
Are there any other Filipino spoofs of popular opera arias? I've heard there was one for El Torreador from Carmen, but I'm not sure.

Just the first part... my dad would only sing one verse:
Hopiang di mabili
Bakit di mabili?
May amag sa tabi
May kasama pang tutubi
Roughly translates to:
Hopia that won’t sell
Why won’t it sell?
It has mold on its side
And a dragonfly

@AmboyBaritone the first time I heard that song "hopiang di mabili" was in the Filipino drama "Maria Clara and Ibarra". Since I started playing my brother's piano I became addicted to it I feel like I'm connected and wanting to hear more tunes from it. He brought his piano with him and started longing with both of them I planned to download games and there's is one piano app that caught my attention. Upon playing, I encountered the song "La Dona e Mobile" its tunes remind me of the song that was sung by Klai one of the female actress.
