Irreplaceable (Tagalog version)

This is the Filipino version of Beyonce’s song “Irreplaceable” (Walang Kapalit).


Kaliwa, kaliwa… Kaliwa, kaliwa…
Umiiyak ang puso at ikaw ang may gawa
Sabi mo sa akin ay ako lang ang s’yang
babae mo sa buhay

Binigay ko ang lahat sa ‘yo
dahil ikaw lang ang tanging mahal ko
pero bakit nasaan ka
iniwan mo ako at sumama sa iba

Pangako mo sa akin
ako lang ang tanging mahal
o ba’t ngayon tayong dalawa’y di nagtagal
Ito lang masasabi ko sa ‘yo

Wala kang kwentang lalake
mahilig kang mambabae
akala mo siguro di ko malalaman
na ang tulad mo’y lalakeng salawahan


Wala kang kwentang lalake
mahilig kang mambabae
Anong akala mo sa aming dalawa?
Pagkatapos mong gamitin iiwanan na

Hahabul-Habol (O, Ang Babae)

Hahabul-Habol by Freddie Aguilar is one of the funniest pop songs about Filipino women — it’s about how you can’t really tell what they want.

You visit them too often, they get bored. You don’t visit them enough, they get pissed off… If you don’t woo them, they grumble… They play coy and hard to get… but when you leave them, they’ll come running after you.

Women will drive you crazy, this song says.
