Wonderful baby, nothin’ to fear. Love whom you will, but doubt what you hear

BATJAY: ano ang sinabi ng doctor nang pinanganak ako?
GENTLE READER: tangina, ang pangit namang bata nito!
BATJAY: GAGO!
GENTLE READER: sirit
BATJAY: it’s a bouncing baby boy with super big balls of steel!
GENTLE READER: tagalugin mo nga…
BATJAY: naku, isang tumatalbog na lalaking sanggol na may malaking betlog na bakal!

super batjay, ang lalaking gagamba na may malaking betlog na sintigas ng bakal.

  1. “If I knew the future, you’ll be first to know
    But I don’t know nothin of what life’s about”

    Yan naman ang sabi sakin ng nanay ko.

    Bouncing baby with balls of steel. Great balls of fire, ang galing mo, tsong! hehehe

    But I don’t know nothin of what life’s about
    …Just as long as you live, you’ll never find out”

    ayan tinapos ko ang lines ng sinimulan mong kanta. naalala ko tuloy si don mclean. great artist. the album “american pie” was one of the earliest in my collection. if i am not mistaken, it was the first LP that i purchased using my own saved money. that was in…. hmmm. 1976 or 77. i think i was still in 3rd or 4th grade. ang tagal na pala. ang gandang album non, walang tapon na kanta.

    “betlog na bakal” ang tagalog translation. maisali nga sa blog. hehe.

    ingat sir.

  3. matagal ko na ngang iniisip mylabopmayn kung ano ang magandang complete name ko. ang pinakamagandang naisip ko, so far, ay:

    “super batjay, ang lalaking gagamba na may betlog na sintigas ng bakal.”

    pwede na kaya ito?

  4. before he came out I exhaustedly cried saying, “I’m hungry and tired, I don’t want it anymore” then after he came out I said, “SHE alright?” the doctor said “HE has balls, HE managed to get out”…

  5. I like that song of Don Mclean – “where babies float by, just counting their toes…”
    American Pie ay favourite ko rin. Pero asar ako nung kinanta yan ni Madonna. I wanted to run away screaming whenever I heard her. Perfect na yung version in Don tapos ni-cover pa! That’s sacrilege!!

    Have a nice weekend you two – Batjay and Jet!

  6. gandang umaga, ate celia…

    yup, that is “wonderful baby”. great song ano? nakakasenti, especially if you came of age when that became popular. asar din ako sa version ni madonna. in my words eh “nilapastangan” niya ang kanta. in english – she bastardized the great song. gardement. hehehe.

    a great weekend to you too. malamig na siguro diyan sa inyo.
