Sandali

 Our friend Myra composed a song with Jennie. Jennie wrote the lyrics, and Myra added the melody.
We used it for our film, Mga Huna Huna ni Erlinda and I can’t stop listening to it. I can’t stop singing to it. I can’t get it out of my head! It’s the classic case of the Last Song Syndrome…and it’s chronic.

So chronic that I actually ended up replaying the song over and over until I finally transcribed its lyrics. The lyrics are in Filipino, so I might have to submit a translated copy of the lyrics soon. But for now, to satisfy my chronic obsession with the song, here’s the lyrics to Sandali.

“Para kang ambon sa gitna ng tag-init Di inaasahan Pero yan dumating parin” – Sandali Music and Performance by @lilblackmeow Written by @ellorish #erlindafilm #OST #LSS

I.
Para kang isang tsokolate
Ang sarap mong namnamin
Pero bawal dahil me diabetes
pamilya namin

Para kang malamig na serbesa
sa may tindahan
nakakapawi ng uhaw
pero nakakalaki ng tiyan

Refrain:
Para kang ambon sa gitna ng tag-init
Di inaasahan pero ‘yun dumating parin

Chorus 1:
Sandali lang naman, kuya
Ako’y nag-iisip pa
Sandali lang naman, pwede ba?
Ako rin ay nagtataka
Sandali lang naman, bakit ba?
Ba’t para sa’yo ‘tong kanta

II.
Binalaan ako ng nanay
Na lumayo sa katulad mo
Mga tatung nagkalat at di mabilang
Buhok na hanggang bewang

Anong magagawa ganyan aking tipo
Eh, rebelde din naman ako
Me tatu rin at me butas sa tenga
Pareho lang naman tayo

Refrain:
Eh, ano ngayon kung maling choice ka
Ang mahalaga masaya tayo, diba?

Chorus 2:
Halika na nga, kuya
Wag kang mag-alala
Sakaling lumayo ka man
Hindi kita susundan
Kahit mahal na yata kita
Nakakalito, diba?

Coda:
Pwede naman kitang mahalin, diba?
Makasama ka saglit
Dama ang pag-ibig at sakit

Chorus 1 & 2:
Sandali lang naman, kuya
Ako’y nag-iisip pa
Sandali lang naman, pwede ba?
Ako rin ay nagtataka
Sandali lang naman, bakit ba?
Ba’t para sa’yo ‘tong kanta

Halika na nga, kuya
Wag kang mag-alala
Sakaling lumayo ka man
Hindi kita susundan
Kahit mahal na yata kita
Nakakalito, diba?
