As we watched the orange sun set on Manila Bay
You put your arms around me and I heard you say
You have captured my heart so I am making yours mine
Cause I want to love you darling till the end of time.
We sang each other love songs every night and day
We said that we would honeymoon on Manila Bay
We promised to get married and raise a family
Cause that’s the only way that we’d live happily.
We watched the orange sun set on Manila Bay
And I put my arms around you every night and day.
I’ll never let myself fall out of love with you
Cause you’re the only woman whose love for me is true.
When you watch the orange sun set on Manila Bay
Will you put your arms around her and softly say,
“You have captured my heart so I am making yours mine
Cause I want to love you darling till the end of time.”
When the blue turns pink and orange and the sun is out of sight
I want to hear you say that you will love me day and night
I promise to be faithful and to never leave your side
If on Manila Bay you’ll be my Filipina bride.
