Namamasko


Info

Namamasko is from the Tagalog word Pasko meaning Christmas. This song is traditionally sung during caroling. It’s about going to someone’s house to ask for aguinaldo, a Christmas gift, usually money. (source)


Lyrics – Tagalog

Sa maybahay, ang aming bati,
“Merry Christmas!” na maluwalhati
Ang pag-ibig, ‘pag siyang naghari
Araw-araw ay magiging pasko lagi!

Refrain
Ang sanhi po ng pagparito, hihingi po ng aguinaldo
Kung sakali kami’y perwisyo
Pasensya na kayo, kami’y namamasko

Translation – To The Householder We Greet

To our host we’d like to say,
A “Merry Christmas!” for you and me,
When Love, if it doth reign,
every day will be joyful, always!

Refrain
The reason we have come is to ask for money.
If we happen to be a bother,
please be patient, for we are singing!
