Check out the lyrics of “Pumapag-ibig:”
Hashtag in love pumapag-ibig
Paselfi-selfie lang kumuha
Nang bigla syang nandyan nang sumali
Pasenti-senti lang nung una
Nang biglang napalitan ng smiley
Hindi ko napigilan
Parang kulang ang sandali
At kay bilis naman
Teka lang muna wait
Ganito pala ang pumapag-ibig
Napapa-sing-along sa love song
Woh oh oh parapapa
Teka lang muna wait
Kalito pala ang pumapag-ibig
Madrama parang telenobela
Araw-gabi hindi na mapakali
Alam na pag may time
Hashtag inlab pumapag-ibig
Nagmamahal na daw bilihin
Hinanapan ng konek sa topic
Nagmamahal na daw aminin
Peg lang ang “Gotta believe in magic”
Ewan lang baka mawala
