TAGALOG SONG LYRICS

Pasko na, sinta ko
Hanap-hanap kita
Bakit nagtatampo‘t
Nilisan ako?

Kung mawawala ka
Sa piling ko, sinta
Paano ang Paskong
Inulila mo?

Sayang, sinta
Ang sinumpaan
At pagtitinginang tunay

Nais mo bang
Kalimutang ganap
Ang ating suyuan at galak?

Kung mawawala ka
Sa piling ko sinta
Paano ang Paskong
Alay ko sa ‘yo?

ENGLISH TRANSLATION

It’s Christmas now, love
I’ve been looking for you
Why’d you get mad and
Leave me?

If you’ll disappear
From my side, love
How will Christmas be
Now that you’ve left me alone?

What a waste, love
The vows
And real understanding

Do you want
To completely forget
Our wooing and joys?

If you’ll disappear
From my side, love
What’s going to happen to
the Christmas I dedicate to you?
