HIVE OPEN MIC 136 / Banal Na Aso, Santong Kabayo Cover

▶️ Watch on 3Speak


What a lovely and exciting theme this week!
I immediately thought of Bon Jovi, Guns N' Roses, and Skidrow. LOL.
I did try singing them out but failed, so I went local because I adore Pinoy/Filipino rock bands, particularly alternative/punk/pop/blues rock.
Pinoy music does ROCK too! 🤘😊

After some thought, I chose to go with Yano's Banal Na Aso, Santong Kabayo. Yano is a 1993 Filipino folk/punk music band. Their vocalist, Dong Abay, is so cool, and I like how he sang most of their songs, which are straightforward and meaningful to society. "Banal Na Aso, Santong Kabayo," which translates as "Holy Dog, Saintly Horse," is widely regarded as one of the greatest pieces of Original Pilipino Music (OPM). The song is masterfully written to expose religious hypocrisy, especially among those who have "disguised" themselves as Divine believers. Hypocrites who preach Divine teachings but do not put them into practice. I feel that most Filipinos value this music. Even if others thought it was immoral and evil-inspired, it became legendary and has remained so to this day. In fact, the song has been covered by a variety of artists, each with its own musical style.

Filipino Lyrics

Hihihihi
Kaharap ko sa dyip ang isang ale
Nagrorosaryo mata niya'y nakapikit
Pumara sa may kumbento
Sa babaan lang po sabi ng tsuper kase me naghuhuli
Mura pa rin nang mura ang ale

Banal na aso santong kabayo
Natatawa ako hihihihi
Banal na aso santong kabayo
Natatawa ako hihihihi
Sa 'yo

Nangangaral sa kalye ang isang lalake
Hiningan ng pera ng batang pulubi
Pasensya na para daw sa templo
Pangkain lang po sabi ng paslit
Talagang di ba pupwede
Lumipat ng pwesto ang lalake
Banal na aso santong kabayo
Natatawa ako hihihihi

Banal na aso santong kabayo
Natatawa ako hihihihi
Sa 'yo

Anuman ang iyong ginagawa sa iyong kapatid
Ay siya ring ginagawa mo sa akin
Anuman ang iyong ginagawa sa iyong kapatid
Ay siya ring ginagawa mo sa akin

Banal na aso santong kabayo
Natatawa ako hihihihi
Banal na aso santong kabayo
Natatawa ako hihihihi
Sa 'yo
Sa 'yo
Hihihihi

English Lyrics**

On a bus, in front of me was a lady
Praying the rosary with her eyes closed
She asked to be dropped off at the convent
The driver replied "To the rightful unloading area lest I'll be caught."
But the lady started cursing.

Holy dog, saintly horse
I am laughing, Hi hi hi hi
Holy dog, saintly horse
I am laughing, Hi hi hi hi
At you.

A man is preaching on the streets
A beggar boy asked him for alms
"I am sorry," he said, "This is for the temple."
And the child begged, "Just for my food, please,
Can you not give me anything?"
But the preacher moved somewhere else.

Holy dog, saintly horse
I am laughing, Hi hi hi hi
Holy dog, saintly horse
I am laughing, Hi hi hi hi
At you.

Whatever you are doing to your brothers
Is what you are also doing to me.
Whatever you are doing to your brothers
Is what you are also doing to me.

Holy dog, saintly horse
I am laughing, Hi hi hi hi
Holy dog, saintly horse
I am laughing, Hi hi hi hi
At you.
