there's no place like home....

MANILA
By: Hot Dog


1

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

Refrain

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)
Manila....Manila.
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?
