Bebot, Bebot

Track 12 of Black Eyed Peas' new album Monkey Business (Bebot) is in tagalog. This is some funny ass shit!

Verse 1:
Hoy pare pakinggan nyo ko
Eto nang tunay na filipino
Galing sa baryo Sapang Bato
Pumunta ng LA nagtrabaho
Para makatulong sa nanay
Dahil sa hirap ng buhay
Pero masaya parin ang gulay
Pag kumain nagkakamay
Yung kanin, chicken adobo
Yung balot, binebenta sa kanto
Tagay mo na nga ang baso
Pare ko inuman na tayo

Verse 2:
Masdan mo ang magagandang dalaga
Nakakagigil ang beauty mo talaga
Lambingin di nakakasawa
Ikaw lang ang gustong kasama
Yung bahay o kubo
Pagibig mo ay totoo
Puso ko'y laging kumikibo
Wala kang katulad sa mundo ko
Pinoy ka sigaw na, sige
Kung maganda ka sigaw na, sige
Kung buhay mo'y mahalaga, sige
Salamat sa iyong suporta

Here is a rough translation that I found on the web (I can't translate, I'm whitewashed!)

Verse 1:
Hey man listen to me
This is the real Filipino
Came from the barrio at Sapang Bato
Went to L.A. and labored
So to help mom
Because life is so hard
But the disposition is still bright
when eating we use our hands
The rice, chicken adobo
The balut, being sold at the corner
Share the glass already
My friend let’s all start drinking

Verse 2:
Observe all the beautiful girls
Your beauty really drives me crazy
Sweetness is never tiresome
You’re the only one I want to be with at
Your house or nipa hut
Your love is for real
My heart always speaks
There is no one else in the world like you
You’re Filipino shout now, c’mmon
If you’re beautiful shout now, c’mmon
If you value your life, c’mmon
Thank you for your support
