Eraserheads – Ang Huling El Bimbo lyrics

Kamukha mo si Paraluman
No'ng tayo ay bata pa
At ang galing-galing mong sumayaw
Mapa-Boogie man o Chacha

Ngunit ang paborito
Ay pagsayaw mo ng El Bimbo
Nakakaindak, nakakaaliw
Nakakatindig balahibo

Pagkagaling sa 'skwela ay didiretso na sa inyo
At buong maghapon ay tinuturuan mo ako

Magkahawak ang ating kamay at walang kamalay-malay
Na tinuruan mo ang puso ko na umibig na tunay

Naninigas aking katawan
'Pag umikot na ang plaka
Patay sa kembot ng bewang mo
At pungay ng 'yong mga mata

Lumiliwanag ang buhay
Habang tayo'y magkaakbay
At dahan-dahang dumudulas
Ang kamay ko sa makinis mong braso, hooh

Sana noon pa man ay sinabi na sa iyo, hoh
Kahit hindi na uso ay ito lang ang alam ko


La la la la, la la, la la, la la la

Lumipas ang maraming taon
'Di na tayo nagkita
Balita ko'y may anak ka na
Ngunit walang asawa

Tagahugas ka raw
Ng pinggan sa may Ermita
At isang gabi'y nasagasaan
Sa isang madilim na eskinita, hah

Lahat ng pangarap ko'y bigla lang natunaw
Sa panaginip na lang pala kita maisasayaw


La la la la, la la, la la, la la la [2x]

    This song is about a boy who would always go to a girl's house to learn how to dance the El Bimbo, and in doing so ends up falling in love with the girl. Years have passed and the girl already has a child, but no husband. She also has a job as a dishwasher in Ermita and ends up dead after being run over by a car. Afterwards, all of his hopes with the girl melted away, and the only way he can ever dance with her again is in his dreams.

    I like this song. It's about a boy who likes this girl a lot. And he looks forward to the times of the day when the girl would teach him to dance because it's the only time he would be able to hold her hand and she taught him to love. . And I am guessing a few years have past and the girl he is still in love has a baby but with no father present, with a dead end job, who in the end, dies in a car crash. And now he is sad because he wasn't able to express his love to her because it's too late.
    Kinda sad.

    Noon pinapaulit ulit ko tong pinakikinggan at kinakanta, pero simula nung ni-lecture namin ito, I was so confused hindi ko talaga ini-expect. I know many of us thinks that this is all about love story, yah ganun din ako nung una but try to deepen and widen your minds to revealed the true story of this song. What's the true story behind this song?

    It's about love that has not been renounced. It's a song of regret. The song tells us that we should not be afraid to love before it's too late. Eraserheads made it as a story so the listeners would relate on that time when the music was released (back in the '70s or '80s).

    This is song was awesome, even now I want to hear this song, because this song is based on a person who fell in love with the person teach him to dance El Bimbo. I hope Eraserheads make another songs that reflect our lives, and I hope there's part two of El Bimbo Song.
