Original video
Lapit mga kaibigan at makinig kayo (Listen up, y'all)
Ako'y may dala-dalang balita galing sa bayan ko (Listen closely, y'all)
Nais kong ipamahagi ang mga kwento
Ng mga pangyayaring nagaganap
Sa lupang pinangako

Yo, Everyplace got a ghetto and this is my version of it.
Check it out...
Listen closely y'all, I got a story to tell
A version of my ghetto where life's 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 a 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

Lapit mga kaibigan at makinig kayo (Listen up, y'all)
Ako'y may dala-dalang balita galing sa bayan ko (Listen closely, y'all)
Nais kong ipamahagi ang mga kwento
Ng 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 dream
To be next to my mom with her home cooked meal
Man, 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 wish I could have helped you out...

Lapit mga kaibigan at makinig kayo (Listen up, y'all)
Ako'y may dala-dalang balita galing sa bayan ko (Listen closely, y'all)
Nais kong ipamahagi ang mga kwento
Ng mga pangyayaring nagaganap
Sa lupang pinangako

Song InfoEdit

The chorus is sung in Tagalog, and translated says:

Come together, my friends, and listen (Listen up, y'all)
I brought news from my native land (Listen closely, y'all)
I'll tell you how we live and what goes on
From my beloved homeland
