"The Apl Song", from the album Elephunk.


[Chorus]
Lapit mga kaibigan at makinig kayo (listen up ya'll)
Ako'y may dala-dalang, balita galing sa bayan ko (listen closely ya'll)
Nais kong ipamahagi ang mga kwento
Ang mga pangyayaring nagaganap
Sa lupang pinangako

Every place got a ghetto this is my version
Check it out...

Listen closely yo, I got a story to tell
A version of my ghetto where life felt for real
Some would call it hell but to me it was heaven
God gave me the grace, amazin' ways of living
How would you feel if you had to catch your meal?
Build a hut to live and to eat and chill in.
Having to pump the water outta the ground
The way we put it down utilizing what is around
Like land for farming, river for fishing
Everyone helpin' each other whenever they can
We makin' it happen, from nothin' to somethin'
That's how we be survivin' back in my homeland

[Chorus]
Lapit mga kaibigan at makinig kayo (listen up ya'll)
Ako'y may dala-dalang, balita galing sa bayan ko
(listen closely ya'll)
Nais kong ipamahagi ang mga kwento
Ang mga pangyayaring nagaganap
Sa lupang pinangako

Yo, its been a while but...
I been back home to my homeland, (check it out) to see what's going on

Man it feels good to be back at home
And it's been a decade, on the journey all alone
I was fourteen when I first left Philippines
I've been away half my life, but it felt like a day
To be next to my mom with her home cooked meal
Meant I felt complete, my emotions I feel!
Now life has changed for me in the U.S
But back at home man, life was a mess...
I guess sometimes life's stresses gets you down
On your knees, oh brother I wish I could have helped you out...

[Chorus]
Lapit mga kaibigan at makinig kayo (listen up ya'll)
Ako'y may dala-dalang, balita galing sa bayan ko
(listen closely ya'll)
Nais kong ipamahagi ang mga kwento
Ang mga pangyayaring nagaganap
Sa lupang pinangako

English TranslationEdit

In English, the chorus is translated as:

Come closer, my friends, and everyone listen
I brought news from my homeland
I'll tell you how we live and what goes on
From my beloved homeland.
