Mayon Volcano

I am from Bicol, the Southern part of Luzon in the Philippines where Mayon Volcano is located. Filipinos consider this volcano with a perfect cone as the Eighth Wonder of the World. The name Mayon was derived from abbreviated Magayon which means beautiful.

Somewhere Over the Rainbow - Judy Garland

Somewhere, over the rainbow, way up high,
There's a land that I heard of once in a lullaby.

Somewhere, over the rainbow, skies are blue,
And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true.

Someday I'll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me,
Where troubles melt like lemon drops.
Away above the chimney tops
That's where you'll find me.

Somewhere over the rainbow, bluebirds fly,
Birds fly over the rainbow,
Why then, oh why can't I?

If happy little bluebirds fly
Beyond the rainbow,
Why oh why can't I?

Mac Arthur Park-Andy Williams

There will be another song for me
For I will sing it
There will be another dream for me
Someone will bring it
I will drink the wine while it is warm
And never let you catch me looking at the sky
And after all the loves of my life
After all the loves of my life
You'll still be the one.

I will take my life into my hands
And I will use it
I will win the worship in their eyes
And I will lose it
I will have the things that I desire
And my passions flow like rivers through the sky.
But after all the loves of my life
After all the loves of my life
I'll be thinking of you
And wonderin' why.

MacArthur Park is melting in the dark
All the sweet, green icing flowing down...
Someone left the cake out in the rain
And I don't think that I can take it
'cause it took so long to bake it
And I'll never have that recipe again
Oh, no!
Oh, no-o-o
