ChatterBox (prince charming ang banat)

Posted: November 17, 2006 in All and Sundry

above is the title of my students’ project in AH4 (Adventures in Poetry, Drama andFiction). they belonged to one of my general education classes last semester. i told them to make an intertextual project of a particular cebuano poem. and they ended up writing song lyrics and recording the whole composition in one of the city’s recording studio. *drop jaw* although the recording isn’t really what you can call a polished recording fit for a demo tape, i still applaud them for the effort. so i promised to post it in my blog just to see if people would be curious enough to listen. below is the lyrics of the song. Click on Prince Charming Ang Banat for the audio.

Here’s the lyrics:

Prince Charming ang Banat

Chorus:

Sa usa ka dulom/ Ako’y nagdahum/ na muabot ug kalit/ Ang usa ka laking/Sa ako magluwa/ Prince Charming ang banat

1st stanza:

Ug sa dihang nakita ko/ Ang susama kanimo/ Nangit bawat ang akong balahibo/ Wa ko kasabot/ Sa imung boot/ Natingala man tang/ Mata nimoy nagtan-aw/ Sa akong kagwapang makatunaw

Nisulod sa akong utok/ Ang hinungdan sa mga totok/ Istambay sa kanto. Pagkamanyak makatoo/ Labawa nakung gikuyawan/ Pagtulo sa laway, way sapayan/ Akong maingon na/ Ikaw nagahandum/ Nga ako ma-angkon

Repeat Chorus

2nd Stanza:

Taud-taud akong nabantayan/ Ang imong kabuotan/ Sa dihang/ Ako imong gitabanga/ Nabantayan pud nako/ Ang imong panagway/ Layo ra sa dagway/ Na panuway/ Ikaw diay gwapo/ Bagay diay ta/ Karon mas klaro

Nagkaila tang duha/ Sa wa madugay/ Ug didto na nimo/ Masulti ang gugma/ Na dugay na nimong/ Gibati alang kanako

Repeat chorus
