“It’s More Fun In The Philippines” Official Jingle. Translated.

Before anyone says anything to the effect of me being a “hater” or anything, lemme just say this: I like #ItsMoreFunInThePhilippines.  It’s growing on me.  I like where the idea is headed, especially if (correct me if I’m wrong) people can actually contribute to the whole thing.

That said, they just came up with the official jingle to “It’s More Fun in the Philippines.”

Again, before I get accused of being a “hater” or anything, I’m not.  I actually like the jingle.  It’s upbeat, very festive, and it captures the spirit of the campaign.  Thing is, it needs an English version.

There’s probably one in the works, but this is just me taking a crack at it.  Here goes…

Are your feet starting to get itchy
Ready to leave, saunter, and come aboard?
You’re from here, you’re so lucky
As many happenings
As there are islands

It’s more fun in the Philippines
You don’t have to go far
You know you wear fortunate slippers
Your feet are on paradise

It’s more fun in the Philippines
You don’t have to go far
From Batanes all the way to Jolo
It’s a special fun for the Filipino
It’s more fun in the Philippines

Everything’s here, you don’t need a furlough
The seas are deep, and happiness is shallow
And it’s very obvious, you are a Filipino
Your smile reaches the heavens
We’re a race of happiness…

It’s more fun in the Philippines
You don’t have to go far
You know you wear fortunate slippers
Your feet are on paradise

It’s more fun in the Philippines
You don’t have to go far
From Batanes all the way to Jolo
It’s a special fun for the Filipino
It’s more fun in the Philippines

As many happenings
As there are islands

It’s more fun in the Philippines
You don’t have to go far
You know you wear fortunate slippers
Your feet are on paradise

It’s more fun in the Philippines
You don’t have to go far
From Batanes all the way to Jolo
It’s a special fun for the Filipino
It’s more fun in the Philippines

Okay, for the “fortunate slippers” part, I just translate, I’m not a songwriter.
