Lapu – Lapu March

My youthful days…

Once Opon A Time

A country’s national anthem can tell much about the people who live in it. The anthem also shows the citizen’s patriotism for their own land, and though Lapu – Lapu might not be a country on its own, a person who has lived a few years of their childhood in the city would surely know of the bravery of the first Filipino hero to whom the city was named after. This knowledge comes through a song about the city’s very own hero. An anthem that is sung on a daily basis, right after the country’s national anthem, “Lupang Hinirang”.

Here’s the English and Cebuano lyrics to the anthem that a true-blue Oponganon can’t help but sing along to: “Lapu – Lapu March / Dakbayan”

English:

There’s a city east of Cebu
Lapu – Lapu is the name
People there are busy
Everyone is happy
