Jeepney Love Story – Yeng Constantino

Posting more OPM (Original Pilipino Music) on my blog! I want the world to know that OPM songs are nice too!!

Today, it’s Yeng Constantino‘s Jeepney Love Story.

In the Philippines, most people take the public transportation called the Jeepney. It works just like the a train where it has its routes and you have to get down one jeepney to ride on another to transfer. The song talks about a girl sitting next to a guy in the jeepney. She eventually likes him and says that she doesn’t want to get off the jeepney because that would end their love story. (Sorry about the video though, its from the official youtube of her record company thus you see something about the downloading part)

Yeng Constantino is kind of like the Taylor Swift of the Philippines. She has a really nice voice and her songs are self-composed. I have to say she is a gifted artist. She became popular in the business after she won a first prize in a talent show called Pinoy Dream Academy. She’s very popular in the Philippines and her songs are a hit! I absolutely love her songs! ^_^

For those interested, this is the lyrics of  Jeepney Love Story

Sumakay ako sa jeepney
Ikaw ang nakatabi
Di makapaniwala

Parang may hiwagang nadama
Nang tumama sa’yo
Ang aking mga mata

At nagsiksikan na
Dahil tumigil ang jeepney
Sa tapat ng eskuwela

Biglang nagkadikit
Puso ko’y biglang sumikip
At natulala

Sabi nila’y walang hiwaga
Kung wala’y
Ano itong nadarama

Ayoko nang pumara kahit san mapunta
Ayoko nang pumara kung ikaw ang kasama
Ayoko nang pumara

Ayoko nang pumara
Ayoko na ahhh
Ayoko nang pumara kahit san pa lumiko
Ayoko nang pumara sana di na huminto
Ayoko nang pumara
Ayoko nang pumara
Ayoko na
Kung ikaw ang kasama
(Adlib)

At may biglang sumingit
Natiempo pa sa’ting gitna
Sumimangot tuloy
Ang aking mukha

Mabuti nalang nagbayad yung ale
Sabi nya paabot naman
Nagkadahilan ako
Para ika’y tignan

Nung iaabot ang bayad
Kamay mo na palang nakaabang
Pambihira diba swerte ko naman

Sabi nila’y walang pag-ibig
Kung wala’y
Ba’t kumakaba itong dibdib

Ayoko nang pumara kahit san mapunta
Ayoko nang pumara kung ikaw ang kasama
Ayoko nang pumara
Ayoko nang pumara
Ayoko na ahhh
Ayoko nang pumara kahit san pa lumiko
Ayoko nang pumara sana din a huminto
Ayoko nang pumara
Ayoko nang pumara
Ayoko na
Kung ikaw ang kasama

Manong driver
Wag mo nang ibalik ang sukli ko
Manong driver
Di mo ba alam walang babaan to
Drive lang po ng drive
Wag niyong hihinto
Kahit sa’n mapadpad
Kahit lumipad man tayo
Minsan lang madama
Ang ganito

Pero bigla mong
Hinila ang tali
Sabi mo
“Manong bababa ako sandali”

Ayoko nang pumara kahit san mapunta
Ayoko nang pumara kung ikaw ang kasama
Ayoko nang pumara
Ayoko nang pumara
Ayoko na ahhh
Ayoko nang pumara kahit san pa lumiko
Ayoko nang pumara sana din a huminto
Ayoko nang pumara
Ayoko nang pumara
Ayoko na

Ayoko nang pumara kahit san mapunta
Ayoko nang pumara kung ikaw ang kasama
Ayoko nang pumara
Ayoko nang pumara
Ayoko na ahhh
Ayoko nang pumara kahit san pa lumiko
Ayoko nang pumara sana din a huminto
Ayoko nang pumara
Ayoko nang pumara
Ayoko na
Kung ikaw ang kasama
(Adlib)
