a ba ka da (the tagalog alphabet song)

Posted by Nancy G. Janiola at Sunday, January 18, 2009
While doing house chores this morning, I heard this old folk song played somewhere from one of our neighbors' radio sets. Classic and folk songs like this are mostly best heard during Sundays and we used to do it together too with my family. But things changes as it has to but so be it.

Well, anyway I find the message of this song reflective and I think is worth listening especially for us, Filipinos.

Lyrics:

A-Ba-Ka-Da, E-Ga-Ha-I-La,

Ma-Na-Ng-O-Pa,

Ra-Sa-Ta-U-Wa-Ya

A - Ang mag-aral ay gintong tunay

Ba - Bagay na dapat pagsikapan

Ka - Karunungan ay kailangan lang

Da - Dunong ay gamot sa kamangmangan

E - Ewan ang sagot kapag hindi alam

Ga - Gagat gago ay yaong mga hangal

Ha - Hahayaan bang ikay magkagayon

I - Iwasan mo habang may pagkakataon

La - Labis-labis ang mapapala

Ma - Magsikhay ka lang sa pag-aaral

Na - Nasa guro ang wastong landas

Nga - Ngayoy sikapin mong ito ang mabagtas

O - Oras na upang ikaw ay magising

Pa - Pansinin mo ang dako na madilim

Ra - Rehas ng mga tanong ay sagutin

Sa - Sabihin mong ikaw ay may alam na rin

Ta - Tatalino ang bawat isa

U - Unawain lang at turuan

Wa - Wiwikain ang Abakada

Ya - Yaman at gabay sa kaunlaran

adlib

A-Ba-Ka-Da, E-Ga-Ha-I-La,

Ma-Na-Ng-O-Pa,

Ra-Sa-Ta-U-Wa-Ya

A-Ba-Ka-Da, E-Ga-Ha-I-La,

Ma-Na-Ng-O-Pa,

Ra-Sa-Ta-U-Wa-Ya
