Filipina Beauty

There’s a Filipina beauty that I am going to see
Nobody else could miss her, not half as much as me
She loves me with her heart and soul so I gave her mine too
And next time we see each other we both will say, “I do!”

She’s the sweetest Filipina that John Crawford ever knew
Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew
You can talk about your Clementine and sing of Rosa Lee
But my Filipina beauty is the only girl for me.

Where Spratly Islands are offshore and starry skies are bright
She walks down by the seaside in the quiet summer night
I know that she remembers when we parted long ago
I promised to return and ne’er again to leave her so


Oh, now I’m going to marry her, she’ll be my darling wife
My heart’s so full of love for her we’ll have a happy life
We’ll do those things together that we’ve never done before
And my Filipina beauty shall be mine forevermore
