Ang Huling El Bimbo

Ang Huling El Bimbo Lyrics

Kamukha mo si Paraluman
Nung tayo ay bata pa

At ang galing galing mong sumayaw
Mapa boogie man o cha cha
Ngunit ang paborito
Ay ang pagsayaw mo ng El Bimbo
Nakakaindak, nakakaaliw
Nakakatindig balahibo

Pagkaggaling sa eskwela
Ay dideretso na sa inyo
At buong maghapon ay tinuturuan mo ako


Magkahawak ang ating kamay
At walang kamalaymalay
Na tinuruan mo ang puso ko
Na umibig ng tunay

Naninigas ang aking katawan
Kapag umikot na ang plaka
Patay sa kembot ng beywang mo
At pungay ng yong mga mata

Lumiliwanag ang buhay
Habang tayo'y magkaakbay
At dahang dahang dumudulas
Ang kamay ko sa makinis mong braso


Sana noon pa man ay sinabi na sa iyo
At kahit hindi na uso ay ito lang ang alam ko

Magkahawak ang ating kamay
At walang kamalaymalay
Na tinuruan mo ang puso ko
Na umibig ng tunay

La la la la la...

At lumipas ang maraming taon
Hindi na tayo nagkita
Balita ko'y may anak ka na
Ngunit walang asawa


Tagahugas ka raw ng pinggan sa may Ermita
At isang gabi'y nasagasaan sa isang madilim na eskenita
Lahat ng pangarap ko'y bigla lang natunaw
Sa panaginip na lang pala kita maisasayaw


Magkahawak ang ating kamay
At walang kamalaymalay
Na tinuruan mo ang puso ko
Na umibig ng tunay

Magkahawak ang ating kamay
At walang kamalaymalay
Na tinuruan mo ang puso ko
Na umibig ng tunay

La la la la la....

About “Ang Huling El Bimbo”

(Unreviewed)

Ang Huling El Bimbo is a song recorded by the Filipino rock band Eraserheads from their third studio album Cutterpillow, released in 1995. It narrates a first-person perspective of a young boy in love with a beautiful woman older than him, who then meets a tragic end.

The track follows the common musical composition that is evident with most of the80’s and 90’s OPM music. It starts slowly and progresses into a crescendo as the final chorus kicks in.

Ang Huling El Bimbo is undoubtedly one of the most popular OPM songs and has created an undeniable impact in Philippine pop culture, as it is covered by many amateur and professional artists alike. It is worth noting that it served as the background track for a 2009 McDonalds commercial which went viral in the country. It even has directly inspired a musical.

The accompanying music video
is directed by Auraeus Solito, and it depicts a literal translation of the song’s story. This was the band’s first major production music video. It was awarded with a Moonman for “International Viewer’s Choice Awards for Asia” at the 1997 MTV Video Music Awards. The Eraserheads is the first Filipino music act to receive such an award.
