Sen. Bong Revilla’s Privilege Song

In a rare event, the Senate, which is supposed to be a hall of honorable people doing legislative functions, became a stage of entertainment and dis-honorable acts.

Today, Sen. Bong Revilla Jr. delivered another privilege speech aimed at answering all accusations about his involvement in the PDAF Scam. But the lengthy, dramatic, semi-cinematic approach to his privilege speech surprised viewers and listeners when towards the end, he sang his original song entitle “Salamat Kaibigan” alongside an audio visual presentation.

I don’t know how to feel at that very moment, because that is something not intended in a Senate hall. Disgusted, embarrassed, and everything, it was a mixed of emotions. But all I know is that Senate should not be used in such mockery and foolishness. How lowly can our house of congress get? Allegedly plundered by many of its members and now being used as a “showbiz stage”, so dis-heartening. But let’s move-on with the show, his inclination (on the early parts of the speech) to resign didn’t also happen, so let’s just wait for the trial of their case, and watch as justice unfolds in-front of our very eyes.

Anyways, if you failed to catch Sen. Bong Revilla’s privilege song, here’s the copy of its lyrics.

Salamat sa inyong pagmamahal
Sa tiwala, pananalig at dasal
Ang pagsubok sa ‘ting buhay ay
Hindi magtatagal
Katotohanan lilitaw
Sa gabay ng Maykapal.
Kailanman ay ‘di nang-iiwan
Sumama, nanalig sa anumang laban
Ngayon ang buhay ko
Ay pilit dinudungisan
Ngunit ‘di ako papaya
Hantungan ma’y kamatayan.
Salamat mga kaibigan
Kailanman ay ‘di malilimutan
Kung ito man ang kapalaran
Nananalig pa rin sa katotohanan
Salamat mga kaibigan
Kayo ang aking tanging sandigan
Pagmamahal niyo ang nagbibigay kalakasan
Habang kayo ay nariyan
Lagi lamang tatandaan
Ikaw ako, ako ikaw
Magkaibigan.
Pagmamahal sa ‘ki’y bumubuo
Ipaglalaban, hindi pagugupo
Muli akong babangon at pagdating ng panahon
Muli magsasama, may dignidad taas noo.
Salamat mga kaibigan
Kailanman ay ‘di malilimutan
Kung ito man ang kapalaran
Nananalig pa rin sa katotohanan
Salamat mga kaibigan
Kayo ang aking tanging sandigan
Pagmamahal niyo ang nagbibigay kalakasan
Habang kayo ay nariyan
Lagi lamang tatandaan
Ikaw ako, ako ikaw
Magkaibigan.
Muli kayong babalikan
Hinding-hindi kailanman
Malilimutan

  1. Kanta ba Ito, o tula? Parang rap, kasi my rhyme. Anyway, he should have presented facts that will belied the accusations against him. Not a tone asking for sympathy to the public. So, pathetic.
