lyrics

(Makinig ka 4x)
(Heto, heto, heto na)

Babae,
Ikaw ay isang silungan na mula
Sa bumubuhos na ulan, buhay gala
Nagbibigay ng direksyon sa nawala
Mahalaga

Komare,
nakamamangha ang bihag mong ganda,
Na hindi lang sa dikit ng ‘yong mukha,
Kun 'di pati sa puso mo’t kaluluwa
Mga lalaki sa iyo’y sumasamba
Naaba sa 'yong dangal
Eh ano ba
Aminin na
Sabihin na


Chorus:
Ang ganda ko noh?
Ang ganda ko
Ang ganda ko noh?
Ang ganda ko (2x)

Sinong panalo (Ako)
Sinong diwata (Ako)
Sino ang hari (Ako)
Ang bakunawa (Ako)
Isang bituin (Ako)
Makapangyarihan (Ako)
Eh ano ba
Aminin na


Babae,
Musmos na sanggol sa iyong mga bisig
Hubog sa iyong pagmamahal, ika’y makisig
Bumangon ka
Sa pagkadapa

Komare
Ikaw ay ina, asawa at anak,
Kasuyuan, kapatid, kaibigan
Ika’y pinuno
Mamamayan
Tagapagtanggol
Isang sandigan

Eh ano ba
Aminin na
Sabihin na

(Repeat Chorus)


Hindi lang ilaw ng tahanan
Ang papel mong ginagampanan
Nasa kamay mo ang lipunan
Ikaw ay ilaw ng sambayanan
Salawahan man ang iyong bansag, eh
Sa paniniwala mo ika’y tapat eh
Hindi lang ilaw ng tahanan
Ang papel mong ginagampanan
Nasa kamay mo ang lipunan
Ikaw ay ilaw ng sambayanan

Babae ka
Lumaban ka
Huwag kalimutang babae Ka

Ang ganda ko no?
Ang ganda mo 4x

Babae ka
Lumaban ka
Mahalaga
Babae ka
Babae ka


ENGLISH Translation:


Woman,
You are our shelter coming from
The pouring rain
Wanderer
You give guidance to those who are lost,
Valuable

Sister,
They are in awe of your beauty
Not only by the shape of your face
But also with your heart and soul
Men bow down to you,
Humbled by your dignity
So what now?
Admit it
Say it

Chorus:
"I'm beautiful, yeah?”
I'm beautiful 4x)


Who is winning? (I am)
Who is goddess? (I am)
Who is king? (I am)
The dragon? (I am)
A star? (I am)
Powerful (I am)
So what now?
Admit it.

Woman,
That child you hold in your arms
Is molded by your love,
You are strong
Rise Up
When you fall down

Sister,
You are a mother, a partner, a child
A Lover, a sibling, a friend
You are a leader
A citizen
A protector
A foundation
So what now?
Admit it
Say it

Chorus:

"I'm beautiful..."


"Light of the household",
Is not the only role you play
Society is in your hands
You are also the light of the nation
They will label you fickle-minded
But you are faithful to what you believe in
"Light of the household"
Is not the only role you play
Society is in your hands
You are the light of the nation.

You are a woman
You must resist / fight back / Assert yourself
Don’t forget that You are a woman
(I'm beautiful
You're beautiful) 4x

You are a woman
You must resist / fight back / Assert yourself
It is important
You are a woman
You are a woman
