Chorus:

I am the man from Manila, kami ang tinig na kayumanggi

I am the man from Manila, buhayin natin ang himig ng lahi

 

Verse 1:

Ako'y Manileño taga Mandaluyong

Nais kung gumalaw isigaw sa buong mundo

Nasaan ang sikat ng araw? dito sa silangan inyong matatanaw

Pitong libong islang puro luntian, Napapaligiran ng karagatan

Tayo'y nabubuhay sa archipelago

Dayuhan ay biglang pumasok at sumakop sa atin

Sabihin na sila'y kailangan natin

Tayo'y mga alipin sa sariling lupain

Tinamnan ng ninuno. Perlas ng Silanganan

Inararo ang likas na mayamang

Pilipinas. Mindanao, Visayas at Luzon

I'm ready to defend the 3 stars and the sun

Manila ang sabi ng iba ay Maynila

Tayo'y isinilang para upang di maging alila

Ng kahit nino mang sino mang dayuhan

Mandirigmang mga likas na matapang

Guerilyero, katipunero mga Marino

Handang ipagtanggol ng mga sundalong

Pinoy, Hoy! (mga kababayan) Gising! Huwag nang mabahala siyempre coz I'm the man from Manila

 

Repeat chorus

 

Verse 2:

The man from Manila, the killer, the show stopper

Depth rhyme creator, deep like a crater

Mentally equipped to rippin’ up opposition

In a second a heartbeat make you move your feet

Rock to the beat that MOD can cut a groove to

Coz Francis Magalona’s here to move you

Make you understand, complicated but still I made it

A long hard climb to the top but still I’ve waited

For my chance of a lifetime by rocking dope rhymes

Make you get a feel of what it’s like to be me one time

I was a young blood growing up reckless

But God showed me the way and redirect this channel

And fought with a vision of a new tomorrow that the land that I loved be relieved of its sorrow

And peace revitalized can reign once and forever

Make this land greater start with the man from Manila

A man is still a brand new authority

The dance floor king in full effect superiority

Of hip hop madness rhymes of royal badness.

From the time I perform to when I’m finished

You’ll be glad this, records rotating coz you’ve been waiting all night

To get up and move your body right

Now’s the time to let it all show.

Just go with the flow now you know that it’s the man from Manila

 

Repeat chorus
