Ang Huling El Bimbo / The Last El Bimbo - Eraserheads | Lyrics & English Translation

Woah! All this time I've been only listening to this song's chorus but now that I have really taken a look at the lyrics, I feel quite moved and I'm happy to share this to y'all. What a great song. And it's not only me who says so. This is actually a legend in the Philippine Music Industry. 






Tagalog/Original

Kamukha mo si Paraluman
No'ng tayo ay bata pa
At ang galing-galing mong sumayaw
Mapa-Boogie man o Chacha

Ngunit ang paborito
Ay pagsayaw mo ng El Bimbo
Nakakaindak, nakakaaliw
Nakakatindig balahibo

Pagkagaling sa 'skwela ay didiretso na sa inyo

At buong maghapon ay tinuturuan mo ako

Magkahawak ang ating kamay at walang kamalay-
malay
Na tinuruan mo ang puso ko na umibig na tunay

Naninigas ang aking katawan
'Pag umikot na ang plaka
Patay sa kembot ng bewang mo
At pungay ng 'yong mga mata

Lumiliwanag ang buhay
Habang tayo'y magkaakbay
At dahan-dahang dumudulas
Ang kamay ko sa makinis mong braso, hooh

Sana noon pa man ay sinabi na sa iyo
Kahit hindi na uso ay ito lang ang alam ko


Magkahawak ang ating kamay at walang kamalay-
malay
Na tinuruan mo ang puso ko na umibig na tunay

La la la la, la la, la la, la la la

Lumipas ang maraming taon
'Di na tayo nagkita
Balita ko'y may anak ka na
Ngunit walang asawa

Tagahugas ka raw
Ng pinggan sa may Ermita
At isang gabi'y nasagasaan
Sa isang madilim na eskinita

Lahat ng pangarap ko'y bigla lang natunaw
Sa panaginip na lang pala kita maisasayaw


Magkahawak ang ating kamay at walang kamalay-
malay
Na tinuruan mo ang puso ko na umibig na tunay

Magkahawak ang ating kamay at walang kamalay-
malay
Na tinuruan mo ang puso ko na umibig na tunay

La la la la, la la, la la, la la la




English

You look like Paraluman*
When we were kids
And you can dance so well
be it Boogie or chacha

But my favorite
is the way you dance the El Bimbo
makes me dance, so entertaining
goosebumps-inducing

I would go straight to your house after coming back
from school
and you would be teaching me the whole afternoon

Our hands are held together, without us noticing

that you have taught my heart how to truly love

My body stiffens
when the record plays
I'm caught between the swaying of your hips
and your tender stare

Life gets brighter
while our arms are over the other's shoulder
and so carefully slipping
is my hand over your smooth arm

Wishing that you've been told a long time ago
So even if it's out of style, this is the only thing I
know

Our hands are held together, without us noticing

that you have taught my heart how to truly love

La la la la, la la, la la, la la la

Many years have passed
we never met again
I've heard that you have a child already
but no spouse to speak of

It was said that you're a dish washer
in Ermita
and one night you were ran over
on a dark lane

All of my dreams melted away
Guess I can only have you dancing with me in my
dreams

Our hands are held together, without us noticing

that you have taught my heart how to truly love

Our hands are held together, without us noticing

that you have taught my heart how to truly love

La la la la, la la, la la, la la la
