Yoyoy Villame (1938 - 2007)

On March 16, 1521

When Philippines was discovered by Magellan

They were sailing day and night across the big ocean

Until they saw a small Limasawa island

Magellan landed in Limasawa at noon

The people met him very welcome on the shore

They did not understand the speaking they have done

Because Kastila gid at Waray-Waray man

When Magellan landed in Cebu City

Rajah Humabon met him, they were very happy

All people were baptized and built the church of Christ

And that's the beginning of our Catholic life

When Magellan visited in Mactan

To christianize them everyone

But Lapu-Lapu met him on the shore

and drive Magellan to go back home

Then Magellan got so mad

Ordered his men to camouflage

Mactan island we could not grab

Cause Lapu Lapu is very hard

Then the battle began at dawn

Bolos and spears versus guns and cannons

When Magellan was hit on his neck

He stumble down and cried and cried

Oh, mother mother I am sick

Call the doctor very quick

Doctor, doctor shall I die?

Tell my mama do not cry

Tell my mama do not cry

Tell my mama do not cry

That's the end of Magellan

in the island of Mactan long time ago

ladies and gentlemen

Salamat g'yud kaayo, bai.
