2014 Summer Song: Ang Sarap Mabuhay

Saturday, June 14, 2014



THE SONG
No. 39 on my Bucket List is to make a song for nine summers.

And this, right here, is my third one. I should also mention that it is my first Tagalog song that doesn't make me cringe when I read it out loud. Yay!

Music and lyrics are by me. Although the base and the guitar rhythm were improvements brought by my adventure-buddy-for-life Dennis. Bass, Lead Vocals, and the Tambourine parts were performed by me. (I do apologize for the occasional out-of-beat tapping, I'm still a noob at this piece of percussion.) On rhythm guitar is Dennis, and him and my nephew RJ provided background vocals.

THE VIDEO

The video features clips of some of my adventures. I feel a great deal of regret because I hadn't thought of filming earlier. Nonetheless, I thank the following for providing footage and/or being part of the video: Ate Ingrid, Dennis, French Fries, NJ, Ninang Cmae, Ninong Lem, Eli, Tita Luz, Dadoy, RJ, JC, JM, Ate Dhen, Ipay, Tita Sharon and Louievin.

Special thanks to Waks (and his brother) for lending Louievin his GoPro - without which, the epic underwater scene wouldn't be possible.

Also, please bear with the quality of the audio and video. I'm presently looking for ways to make it better. (Hint: GoPro and Studio Recording. Hehe.)

Places Featured: Lakeside Park - Angono, Rizal; Mt. Daraitan and Tinipak River and Cave - Tanay, Rizal; Mt. Tagapo - Binangonan, Rizal; Taal Island - Batangas; Cagsawa Ruins - Legazpi, Albay; Manunggul Beach - Bacon, Sorsogon; Mt. Pulog - Bacon, Sorsogon; Paguriran Island - Bacon, Sorsogon; Caramoan Islands - Camarines Sur.

IT'S MORE FUN IN THE PHILIPPINES!




THE LYRICS

Ang Sarap Mabuhay
Lyrics and Music by: Celine Reyes
Performed by: Celine Reyes, Dennis Murillo and RJ Sinangote


Nandyan na naman ang araw
Bangon na
Papayag ka ba na maiwanan
Konti na lang lalarga na tayo
Bilisan mo na
Hinihintay ka na ng mundo

Wag ka nang matakot
Wag na ring malungkot
Bawal sumimangot
Pawiin ang bagot
Wag nang mamroblema kung wala kang pera
Sagot na kita

Tara nang
Maglakbay
Eto ang aking kamay
Wag alalahanin kung saan sasakay
Kay ganda ng tanawing nag-aantay
Tara na
Ang sarap mabuhay

Oh oh oh

Ayos lang mapagod
Ayos lang din
Maputikan man at mag-iba ang amoy
Madapa ka man o masugatan
OK lang yan
Tayo lang agad para mas ganahan

Wag ka nang matakot
Wag na ring malungkot
Bawal sumimangot
Pawiin ang bagot
Wag nang mamroblema kung wala kang pera
Sagot na kita

Tara nang
Maglakbay
Eto ang aking kamay
Wag alalahanin kung saan sasakay
Kay ganda ng tanawing nag-aantay
Tara na
Ang sarap mabuhay

Kung ayaw mo
Pipilitin kita
Sayang naman kasi
Di mo makikita...

Wag ka nang matakot
Wag na ring malungkot
Bawal sumimangot
Pawiin ang bagot
Wag nang mamroblema kung wala kang pera
Sagot na kita

Tara nang
Maglakbay
Eto ang aking kamay
Wag alalahanin kung saan sasakay
Kay ganda ng tanawing nag-aantay
Tara na

Maglakbay
Eto ang aking kamay
Wag alalahanin kung saan sasakay
Pepwede naman tayong makisabay
Kay ganda ng tanawing nagaantay
Pagmasdan ang pagsayaw ng mga kulay
Kalimutan ang lumbay
Kalimutan ang lumbay
Ang sarap mabuhay
