Makunkuna ti bago

In the bago, boredom, it seems, breeds creativity. One of our artistic sisters, Emz who is now in Japan penned the following Evolusion of Bago Sayings. Way to go, sis!

Ebolusyon ti makunkuna ti Bago

1900’s:
Kablaaw, kablaaw, denggen yo
dagiti ipukpukkaw, ayeee
ayeee, insinalidummaaay,
Ni Kabunian agited bendisyon,
sidong-ilay…insinalidummaay…

1950’s:
Dadde,dadde, anya mamme,mamme
Supingaran itan, dadde,
Chanum mamme,ayeee,kitaem mamme
ay ay, anya kadi dayta mamme
Chanum chanum, ayeeee…

1970’s:
Chong jeproks ka ngayon aya,
Ay wen a kaasin Apo Dios piman,
Imbag man,ale intayo dita,
Ag-mountain dew dita baba,
Adon sa tsiks dita kantina…

1990’s:
Wow! Ag-Japan ka gayamen a,
Kumusta ngay dyay ading mo
Dita Hongkong, agpa Canada?
Ketno naka-asawat balikbayan
Aggapo’t Amerika…
Grabeeeee, Cooooool man,
Ale blow-out ka man ngarud
Uray cokes lang dita.

2000’s:
Hey you! Me? Yes you!
Bawal ti uminom dita,
Gumatang kat mineral water.
Adu la amin,aggapot bubon
Ti water ko, madik dayta.
Hey, poor ka man, buy this,
Water purifier, safe
And hi-tech, man, gets mo?

2007:
gud am cno gets ng botel me?

hey, cno gets ng H2O jug ko?

hey wala me $$$$, meron ka 5K?
haa? #$%^&***&^%%!!! Wala lang…
