Lyrics

Mikey, aren’t Filipinos practically Spanish?
Excuse me?
Well, you have a Spanish last name?
Oh yes, Spanish Royalty: Bustos, Duke of Spain
Uh… I mean, no Frank
Filipinos are not a kind of Spanish
In fact, check out our Philippine heroes

I’m Lapu Lapu, machete na guapo
Bold and a king so they called me “Datu”
Who is that I see talking to our fellow tribesmen?
Ferdinand Magellan and his men from Spain
Teaching their religion Catholic Roman
I’m now like Spanish
No, you’re Visayan!
Time to wage war on Ferdinand’s men
Let’s kill him with our weapons here in Mactan

Jose Protacio Rizal Mercado y Alonso Realonda
Jose Rizal
Almost four centuries still ruled by the Spanish
We’re executing you
‘cause I’m anti-colonial?
Your “Noli Me Tangere”, “El Filibusterismo” poems
Cause rebellion against Spain!
Oops! Did I start a Spanish Revolution?
Ready! Consummatum est Aim!

We are the revolution KKK. Fire!
Rizal, your death won’t go in vain!
I’m Andres Bonifacio, Republic Tagalog
President and the Great Plebeian
Co-founder and Supremo of the Katipunan
The Father of the Philippine Revolution
Our secret society of Filipino militants
Hopes for a Philippine free from Spain!

I’m Marcela Agoncillo seamstress
I’m in Hong Kong to escape the stress
Then General Emilio Aguinaldo requested
To sew a flag that best represented
The Philippines. Look oh! Isn’t it bente?
A sun, three star, there’s blue and red
In accordance to General Aguinaldo’s design
I’m Mother of the Philippine Flag, ok?

Apolinario Mabini, first Prime Minister
Of the Philippines. Hurray we’re free! Mabuhay!
Brains of the Revolution, now work in government
Despite loosing my legs to polio disease
I’m an American, we’ll show you burgers,
Get rid of siestas, and re-educate!
Pssh… talk to the hand what next? Lemme guess
You wanna make Philippines a US State?

General Luna, born in Manila
Even if I am an Ilocano
Filipino General fought in the Philippine-American War
Let me intro you to the “Black Guard”
‘Luna Sharpshooter’ that “Luna Defense Line” they’re like woah!
With military science I trained these men
To catch Americans like Pokemon Go!

So you see, Frank
We, Filipinos are not Spanish
We’re not like Americans
We’re not like anybody
We are our own people
Independent and free
We have heroes to thank for that
And we cannot forget
How we became the Philippines
Oh that’s kinda cool, Mikey
And don’t ever forget it
