Magellan Song, Lyrics & Recoding

These are the lyrics to the funny Magellan song of Filipino singer Yoyoy Villame about one of the most famous events in Philippine history: the discovery of the Philippine islands by Ferdinand Magellan and his subsequent death at the hands of local chieftain Lapu-Lapu.

What makes it funny is the broken English lyrics, but the story is as close to the actual events as most Filipinos know.

Once Upon a December (Anastasia)

Once Upon a December (Tagalog Lyrics)

Osong sumasayaw
Pinantahang pakpak
Ilan sa mga naaalala ko
Isang kantang inawit mo
Noong minsang isang Disyembre

Ligtas sa mainit na yakap mo
Kabayong naglalakad sa bagyo
Mga istatwang sumasayaw
Sa aking alaala

Malayo’t matagal nang panahon
Liwanag na sing hina ng baga
Mga bagay na alam ng puso
Mga alaalang hinahanap

Isang kantang inawit mo
Noong minsang isang Disyembre

Mula Aparri… Hanggang Jolo

Theme song of the Eat Bulaga lunchtime TV show from 1979 to 2003.

Mula Aparri hanggang Jolo
Saan ka man ay halina tayo
Isang libo at isang tuwa
Buong bansa… Eat Bulaga!

From Aparri to Jolo
Wherever you are, let’s go
One thousand and one laughs
The whole country… Eat Bulaga!

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountains’ majesty
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
God shed his grace on thee

 COCA-COLA’S TAGALOG LYRICS 

O kay ganda, langit mo’y bughaw
Makulay mong palay
 Matayog na kabundukan
Sa ibabaw ng mga prutas
 America, America, pinagpala ka ng Diyos.
Biyaya mo’y hinahandog sa sandaigdigan.
