Dalagang Pilipina Song

dalagang pilipina lyrics


The music and lyrics were composed by Jose G. Santos. Jose G. Santos was born in Bagumbayan, Bulacan, Bulacan on July 9, 1884. His inspiration for this song is his daughter, Felicidad (now Mrs. Felicidad Vicente) for whom this song is also dedicated. More than a song offered to a favorite daughter, "Ang Dalagang Pilipina" is immensely popular among the Filipinos since it was written in 1928. The song is characterized by its sublime tone and lyrics that extols the ideal beauty and innate traditions of the Filipino woman. Even today, the Filipino's love for the song has not faltered as shown by its being played by rondallas, bands, and orchestras all over the country.

Ang dalagang Pilipina
Parang tala sa umaga
Kung tanawin ay nakaliligaya
May ningning na tangi at dakilang ganda

Bulaklak na tanging marilag
Ang bango ay humahalimuyak
Sa mundo'y dakilang panghiyas
Pang-aliw sa pusong may hirap

Batis ng ligaya at galak

Hantungan ng madlang pangarap
Ganyan ang dalagang Pilipina
Karapat-dapat sa isang tunay na pagsinta

(Maging sa ugali, maging kumilos, mayumi,
mahinhin, mabini ang lahat ng ayos
Malinis ang puso maging sa pag-irog
may tibay at tining ng loob.)
