AHHH! This song is a loaded one and I haven’t had the bandwidth to translate it in English.

This is a more detailed account of how I felt working in Manila for about 14 years. I’d expound more - but the song speaks for itself. It was a toxic environment and I am only glad to get out. But this is a sassy twist on how I wish I responded or could have responded.

It’s an empowered answer to the slights and plights thrown my way xx

This song has been picked to be played on the Real Housewives: UltimateGirlsTrip (and I don’t watch this show) - but as the lyrics and meaning to the song is quite deep, I’d like to bring it here to give it more room to breathe.

I’ll write more about this song when I’m mentally ready xx

Thank you for listening/reading!!:)

INTRO (2 measures)

VERSE 1 (8 measures, 00:05-00:27)

Kislap, kinang—ako’y namangha at napatulala
Pawis, dugo—ginugol lahat, tanggapin lang ako
Barya, halik—katiting na sukli na walang halaga
Tibay, tatag—sinugal ang lahat; nakalaya ako (OR: tibay, sugal—hanggang sa wakas nakalaya ako)

PRECHORUS 1 (8 measures, 00:28-00:48)

Hinding-hindi na babalik sa ‘yo
Kahit ano pa’ng pangangailangan ko
Inahon ko ang sarili ko
Noong ako’y binalewala (nyo)

Dami nyong sinabi, puro salita lang
Hinay-hinay lang at baka mahalata
Inyong panginginig sa (tinding) gigil at inggit
(Habang) ako ay paangat (nang paangat nang paangat)

PREDROP INST. (4 measures, 00:49-01:00)

CHORUS (4 measures, 01:01-01:11)
So high I’ve escaped your orbit
It was close, but I dodged that bullet
Coming fast, now I’m locked and loaded
Hindi ka ba kinakabahan


VERSE 2 (8 measures, 01:12-01:33)

Rags papuntang riches
Yan lang ang business
Kailangan ko lang ang mga tunay
Hindi mga fakeness
Alam ko amg mga karakas
Cause I see you hating
I made it through with all your doubt
Now see how far I make it
You wanna pull me down
Bet you should do better
You aint goin stop my shine
Cause I move more clever
Your words ain’t gonna hurt me
I’m stronger than what your eyes see

PRECHORUS 2 (8 measures, 01:34-01:55)

Ngayon bigla kayong pa-hi, hello
Sabay bulong-bulong ng tsismis nyo
Ganyan lang ba’ng kaligayahan nyo
Di nyo ako mapapahiya

Dami nyong sinabi, puro salita lang
Hinay-hinay lang at baka mahalata
Inyong panginginig sa (tinding) gigil at inggit
(Habang) ako ay paangat (nang paangat nang paangat)

CHORUS 2 (8 measures, 01:56-end)

So high I’ve escaped your orbit
It was close, but I dodged that bullet
Coming fast, now I’m locked and loaded
Hindi ba kakaba-kaba (OR Mukha bang nanganganib ka)

So high I’ve escaped your orbit
It was close, but I dodged that bullet
Coming fast, now I’m locked and loaded
(Umilag/mag-ingat) Umiwas ka’t baka tamaan
