Look at your palms, calloused and hard-
hardships of life ain’t it?
Too many dilemmas
But still that mocking smile,
Daring what life can still throw,
Noypi you are, you rock..
Wherever you may roam, do not be afraid,
of guns or sharp knives, or whatever dark roads maybe…..
Hey I am pinoy, my guts get me far, my race’s amulet runs thru my veins….
I went to the sea, traversed the world,
But it is in my heart, what I’ve been searching all along,
There are countless times, I faced danger and death,
But I know the secret on hanging on to life’s edge ,
So many of them say, a charm keeps me safe,
But they never knew, God is the reason,
Hey I am Pinoy, my guts get me far, to face uncertainty,
my race’s amulet runs thru my veins…
Can you hear?, the whisper of your blood, pulsating life,
So cry out loud my kin, the hymn of your roots….
Hey I am pinoy, my guts get me far, my race’s amulets runs through
- This is my English interpretation of Bamboo's local song.
