there's no place like home....

By: Hot Dog


Maraming beses na kitang nilayasan ,
<i've left you a countless time>
Iniwanan at ibang pinuntahan
<left you to be with somebody else>
Parang babaeng mahirap talagang malimutan
<like a woman who is hard to forget>
Ikaw lamang ang aking laging binabalikan...
<and always return to you>
Manila, I keep coming back to Manila,
Simply no place like Manila,
Manila I'm coming home.
I walked the streets of San Francisco
I traveled rocks and Disneyland
Kidded a million girls in Sydney
But somehow I feel I don't belong


Hinahanap-hanap kita Manila...
<i keep looking for you>
Ang ingay mong kay sarap sa tenga
<your noise is pleasant to the ears>
Mga jeepney mong nagliliparan
<you flying jeepneys>
Mga babae mong nag-gagandahan
<your pretty women>
Take be back in your arms, Manila
And promise me you'll never let go(2x)
I'll keep coming back to Manila
Simply no place like Manila
Manila, Im coming home

Instrumental ( repeat refrain up to Manila, Manila...)

Miss you like hell Manila
No place in the world like Manila
Im coming home to stay....

** ang hirap mag translate. hahaha
<this song is hard to translate!>

    I like your local customs tips but how do I get invited to a Filipino wedding? It sounds like fun!

    You must be a very child-loving person/mother because all your pictures on Manila (things to do) have children in them. Have a good evening.

    Hahaha! Ang gandang idea di ba? We can have a toast or two or three sa bow ng ferry they do allow people to go out sa view deck! :)

    Hi! Wow, you do a lot of things with your family! So you must really love Manila! Meaning, do you even love the pollution and all the floods?
