Mambo Magsaysay

Maybe for most Filipino’s who are in theirĀ  70’s when asked who is the greatest President they would reply Magsaysay. Magsaysay is the first “Masa President” and maybe he have the greatest campaign jingle in Philippine History, the “Mambo Magsaysay”. For those who are to young or not even born been born during the campaign period of Magsaysay you can still catch the Mambo Magsaysay Jingle at youtube

Here is the lyrics of Mambo Magsaysay taken from the youtube page of Ka Bino Guerrero

Mambo Magsaysay

Everywhere that you woud look
Was a bandit or a crook
Peace and order was a joke
Till Magsaysay pumasok!

That is why, that is why
You will hear the people cry
Our democracy will die
Kung wala si Magsaysay.

Mambo, Mambo Magsaysay
Mabu, Mabu- Mabuhay!
Our democracy will die
Kung wala si Magsaysay! First they voted in Lanao
At pati aswang pa daw
Ang election lutong Macaw
Till Magsaysay showed them how

Too much people’s money spent
But no honest government
No more built-in ten percent
If Magsaysay is president

That is why, that is why
We will hear the people cry
Our democracy will die
Kung wala si Magsaysay.
