I am a Filipino, in my heart and soul
To succeed in my endeavor is my goal
And to be on top like a flag on the pole
But I won’t step anyone on my sole
I am a Filipino, and Philippines is my country
Captured for 333 years by Spanish colony
My countrymen fought them solidly,
To be a country with sovereignty.
I am a Filipino, with brown eyes, medium built and black hair
Like other races, we do love and care
And we never refuse to be challenged or dare
Because no matter what we focus to glare.
I am a Filipino, and I will always be proud
And forever I will cry out loud
I am a Filipino, and Tagalog is my native language
For we don’t belong to any savage
