This song posted below- “Mamang Sorbetero (Ice Cream Vendor Man)”, is one of the best Filipino songs for me! It was sung originally by my favorite- Ms. Celeste Legaspi- during the 1980’s, and now considered a classic Filipino song.

It reflects the very typical Filipino life, wherein in every community, whenever an Ice Cream Vendor Man comes ringing his bell, kids and folks run and buy ice cream at once. And friends and families unite to eat ice cream outside the street and play games and fun!

It’s like a call for unity, hope and love- especially during times of need and suffering.

Just like now, wherein Filipinos still feel the pain of the recent calamity- the typhoon Yolanda- they see HOPE anew, they smile, they continue their day-to-day lives, they try to stand-up once more and HELP EACH OTHER.

As the bell rings from the “ice cream vendor man”, I smile.

Here he comes again, to bring me LOVE…

FOREVERMORE.

“Mamang Sorbetero” lyrics (sung by Celeste Legaspi)

Mamang sorbetero,

anong ngalan mo

Tinda mong ice cream,

gustung-gusto ko

Init ng buhay,

pinapawi mo

Sama ng loob,

nalilimutan ko

Mamang sorbetero,

tayo’y sumayaw

Kalembang mong hawak,

muling ikaway

Batang munti,

sa ‘yo’y naghihintay

Bigyang ligaya ngayong tag-araw

Masdan ang ulap sa himpapawid

Korteng sorbetes sa pisngi ng langit

Mata ng dalaga’y nananaginip

Mayro’ng sikretong nasasaisip

Mainit na labi, nagbabagang mata

Sunog na pag-ibig, parang awa mo na

Mamang sorbetero, o,

nasaan ka

Init ng buhay,

pawiin mo na.
