AKO’Y ISANG MABUTING PILIPINO

As the inauguration of  President Benigno Simeón Cojuangco Aquino III happened on this historical day, 1 song has  marked in to my mind. A song of Mr. Noel Cabangon. Mabuting Pilipino, a piece that is worth to follow and live with. If we could only do our part as individual. we could have a better country to live in… 😉

… and the song goes like this… 🙂

AKO’Y ISANG MABUTING PILIPINO

by: Noel Cabangon

Ako’y isang mabuting Pilipino
Minamahal ko ang Bayan ko
Tinutupad ko ang aking mga tungkunin
Sinusunod ko ang kanyang mga alituntunin

Tumatawid ako sa tamang tawiran
Sumasakay ako sa tamang sakayan
Pumipila at hindi nakikipag-unahan
At ‘di ako pasiga-siga sa lansangan.

Nagbaba at nagsasakay ako sa tamang sakayan
‘di na makahambalang parang walang pakiaalam.
Pinagbibigyan Kong mga tumatawid sa kalsada
Humihinto ako kapag ang ilaw ay pula.

‘pagkat ako’y isang mabuting Pilipino
Minamahal ko ang bayan ko
Tinutupad ko ang aking mga tungkulin
Sinusunod ko ang kanyang mga alituntunin

‘Di ako nagongotong o nagbibigay ng lagay

Ticket lamang ang tinatangap kung binibigay

Ako’y nakatayo dun mismo sa kanto
At ‘di nagtatago sa ilalim ng puno.

‘Di ako nagkakalat ng Basura sa lansangan.
‘di bumubuga nga usok ang aking sasakyan
Inaayos kong mga kalat sa basurahan
Inaalagan ko ang ating kapaligiran

‘Pagkat ako’y isang mabuting Pilipino
Minamahal ko ang bayan ko
Tinutupad ko ang aking mga tungkulin
Sinusunod ko ang kanyang mga alituntunin

Lagi akong nakikinig sa aking mga magulang
Kaya’t pag-aaral ay aking pinagbubutihan
‘di ako gumagamit ng bawal na gamot.
O kaya’y tumatambay at sa eskwela’y di pumapasok.

Pinagtatangol ko ang aking karangalan
‘pagkat ito lamang ang tangi kong kayamanan
‘di ko binabenta ang aking kinabukasan
Ang boto ko’y aking pinahahalagahan.

‘pagkat ako’y isang mabuting Pilipino
Minamahal ko ang bayan ko
tinutupad ko ang aking mga tungkulin
Sinusunod ko ang kanyang mga alituntunin
Ako’y isang tapat at totoong lingkod ng bayan
Pabor o lagay ay ‘di ko pinapayagan
Tapat ang serbisyo ko sa mamamayaan
Di ko binubulsa ang pera ng Bayan

Pinagtatangol ko ang mamamayang Pilipino
Mga karapatan nila’y kinikilala ko
Ginagalang ko ang aking kapwa tao
Pinaglalaban Kong ang Dangal ng bayan ko.

‘pagkat ako’y isang mabuting Pilipino
Minamahal ko ang bayan ko
Tinutupad ko ang aking mga tungkulin
Sinusunod ko ang kanyang mga alituntunin.

Pagkat ako’y isang mabuting Pilipino

Pagkat ako’y isang mabuting Pilipino

Ako’y isang mabuting Pilipino
Minamahal ko ang bayan ko
Tinutupad ko ang aking mga tungkulin
Sinusunod ko ang kanyang mga alituntunin
Pagkat ako’y ilang mabuting Pilipino

Panatang makabayan
Iniibig ko ang Pilipinas
Ito ang lupang sinilangan
Ito ang tahanan ng aking lahi
Ako’y tkanyang kinukopkop
At tinutulungan upang maging malakas
Maligaya, at kapakipakinabang
Bilang ganti diringin ko
Ang payo ng aking mga magulang
Sunsundin ko ang mga tungkulin ang aking paaralan
Tutuparin ko ang mga tungkulin
Ng isang mamamayng makabayan
Paglilingkuran ko ang aking bayan
Ang walang pagiimbot at buong katapan
Sisikapin ko maging isang tunay na Pilipino
Sa isip sa salita at sa gawa

for music: Mabuting Pilipino

and their name is “PoPoYField”

Sort of a Popeye stuff when it was first heard or maybe a huge ground owned by Mang Popoy…nyahahah :-D. Popoyfield, a name being used by a Punk Band from the province of Bulacan (of course we’re Bulakeño too… :-D). As I listened to the stories of the band vocalist (diey), the name was inspired by the former labor group leader Ka Popoy Lagman. He said, he was there at UP (Unibersidad ng Pilipinas) when this man was ambushed (tama ba diey? tama ba?) for the “Field” hha…, eeehhh, hmmm, can’t remember the story behind why they cascaded the word Field…. :-D. Nevertheless this band really shares a unique style in the music industry (wow industry na!!!).

Some to the songs they have written were:…. 😀

untouchables, litrato, stufftoys, eltiel, tenksnology, she never, waiting, state funeral, atm, rakstart, days gone by, anymore, wala kana, no vacancy, this time, drink and drive, fading beauty, bahoo, themesong nyo, alkohol, earth saving machine, panaginip, unan, seven stitches rack ,

With a trade mark of having a ” Red Color around the Eye”, original compositions, passion and styles in performing, they would definitely have a chance to be in a more huge stage to share their forte ( wahahaha Concert ito, Libre kami!!!… :-D).

It is so great to know that we have peers who succeed in this field… and That is PopoyField!!!

This is it…

Early today, I have received an SMS from my “watching movie companion” asking  if we can watch the movie “ This is It”.  A film to honor the King of Pop, Michael Jackson.

I’m not that an avid fan of this artist, but i must admit that he is an exemplary one. Having seen the rehearsals cut and michael-jackson-this-is-it-movie-poster-revealedfootages, it queues an exciting glimpse of a live performance that supposed to be held last August 2009. Sad to say it will never be seen forever, but with the aid of this film it justifies that the title “King of Pop” was really for him.

As I watched the movie, it shows that this artist really puts him self to the overall preparation. He was very hands-on on each details of  choreography, beat, and tempo of each song to perform.  The stage production and effects were so cool. I was also amazed by one of his guitarist, Orianthi Panagaris. (Winner… :-D)

I saw my self snapping fingers, tapping feet and singing as a sign of being carried away by the beat and sounds that were being played.

With his styles, moves, fashion statements and songs, he will always live forever in the heart of music industry.Micheal really shared a great contribution to the world.

say it again…..by marie digby

as an acoustic lover, i really appreciate the song of Marie Digby. aside from being lovely, she really rocks…(she’s my crush…but i’m girl huh…. no confusion about that… 🙂 )

with her self- titled album “SAy iT AgAin” this song gives me its real meaning. The lyrics of this song reminds me of say_it_again_coversomeone who used to say that he is in love… (nyahahaha…what wonderful feeling daw :-)). He used to say this to someone but he usually heard the word “thank you”(joinx! seems to be not the appropriate answer). For all he know, he was not appreciated….(joinx again.. and again and again). With its lyrics, he might find the answer.

Say it again for me, Cuz i love the way it feels when you are telling me that i`m The only one who blows your mind

Say it again for me, It`s like the whole world stops to listen when you tell me you`re in love.

being hooked with the song, I even search for the chords and learn to play it on my guitar..:-). Fortunately the chords were easy (wheee…) then I played the music and sung.

May be this song was inspired by the feeling of being given an attention by someone who is vocal to his love…

yeah, what a song…:-)
