ORIGINAL TAGALOG LYRICS


Mabangong bulaklak
simbango ng buhay
humahalimuyak sa gabi at araw

Bulaklak na tangi
na lunti ang kulay
kahit na malanta
may bango ring taglay

KORO:

Iya'y ilang-ilang
ang tanging bulaklak
na ang katamisa'y hindi kumukupas
Bulaklak na tangi
na namumukadkad
sa tangkay ng isang pag-ibig na tapat.
FREE ENGLISH TRANSLATION


Fragrant flower
as fragrant as life
gives off a scent night and day

A rare flower
that's green in color
even after wilting
still has a fragrance

CHORUS:

That's the ylang-ylang
the only flower
whose sweetness doesn't fade
An exceptional flower
that blooms
on the branch of a faithful love.
