OPM Lyrics

“Pinoy Ako” – Orange and Lemons

** I purposely didn’t translate the word “Pinoy” because it has a special meaning that no translation can really justify. It’s a proud appellation we Filipinos use to describe our ethnic heritage. **

“Pinoy Ako” / “I’m Pinoy”

Lahat tayo’y mayroong pagkakaiba / We all have differences
Sa tingin pa lang ay makikita na / You can see just by looking
Iba’t ibang kagustuhan ngunit iisang patutunguhan / [We have] different desires but the same destination
Gabay at pagmamahal ang hanap mo / Guidance and love are what you seek
Magbibigay ng halaga sa iyo / Something that would give you worth
Nais mong ipakilala kung sino ka man talaga / You want to introduce who you really are

Pinoy, ikaw ay Pinoy / Pinoy, you’re Pinoy
Ipakita sa mundo / Show the world
Kung ano ang kaya mo / What you can do
Ibang-iba ang Pinoy / Pinoys are one-of-a-kind
Huwag kang matatakot / Don’t be afraid
Ipagmalaki mo / Be proud
Pinoy ako, Pinoy tayo / You’re Pinoy, we’re Pinoy

‘Pakita mo ang tunay at kung sino ka / Show what’s true and who you are
Mayro’n mang masama at maganda / Even if there’s bad and good
Wala namang perpekto / No one’s perfect
Basta magpakatotoo woah woah / Just be real woah woah
Gabay at pagmamahal ang hanap mo / Guidance and love are what you seek
Magbibigay ng halaga sa iyo / Something that would give you worth
Nais mong ipakilala kung sino ka man talaga / You want to introduce who you really are

Pinoy, ikaw ay Pinoy / Pinoy, you’re Pinoy
Ipakita sa mundo / Show the world
Kung ano ang kaya mo / What you can do
Ibang-iba ang Pinoy / Pinoys are one-of-a-kind
Huwag kang matatakot / Don’t be afraid
Ipagmalaki mo / Be proud
Pinoy ako, Pinoy tayo / You’re Pinoy, we’re Pinoy

Talagang ganyan ang buhay / Life is just like that
Dapat ka nang masanay / You need to get used to it
Wala ring mangyayari / Nothing will happen
Kung laging nakikibagay / If you always conform
Ipakilala ang iyong sarili / Introduce yourself
Ano man sa iyo’y mangyayari / Whatever will happen to you
Ang lagi mong iisipin / Always keep thinking
Kayang-kayang gawin / You can undoubtedly do it

Pinoy, ikaw ay Pinoy / Pinoy, you’re Pinoy
Ipakita sa mundo / Show the world
Kung ano ang kaya mo / What you can do
Ibang-iba ang Pinoy / Pinoys are one-of-a-kind
Huwag kang matatakot / Don’t be afraid
Ipagmalaki mo / Be proud
Pinoy ako, Pinoy tayo / You’re Pinoy, we’re Pinoy
