[Here’s a photo of Pareng Joey’s FAMILY; From L-R: Mareng Lyd SOLIDUM, Jill and Pareng Joey SOLIDUM. Once more, thank you for your donation.]
Nandoon na nga sila1 at nag-prapraktis;
Init ng klima sa PHOENIX1a ay tinitiis;
Pero mga pabaon mula sa PINAS,
Siguradong sa kanila’y magbibigay LUNAS1b!
Sa LUNES nga sa sunod na LINGGO,
Magsisimula na ang ELIMINATIONs2 con TODO;
Susundan naman ito ng SEMI-FINAL3 Round,
Marami siguradong TEAM ang ma-da-DOWN4!
Sana’y tuloy nating ipagdasal ng todo ramdam,
Na mangitian naman sila ng magandang kapalaran;
Dyan mahusay si Pareng Joey5 ko,
Pati na si Mareng Lyd6 na sagrado KATOLIKO!
Salamat sa binahagi nyong PABAON,
Magbibigay ito ng magandang REKOLEKSYON;
Kapag nakibahagi ang malalapit sa Panginoon,
May kalakip itong dasal na tunay na BUMABAON7!
Ang salawikain ngang naturang tambing,
Kung magandang kapalaran ay talagang DARATING;
Darating ito na halos ay nakalatag sa BANDEHADO…
Basta’t mga panalangin at dasal ay laang SUPORTADO!
Salamat muli Pareng Joey at Mars,
Ang inyong tulong at dasal parang NARS8;
Dahil malapit kayong dalawa sa Maykapal,
Mabilis madinig at makarating ang DASAL!
Thank you muli sa suporta sa FUNDRAISER9 ni ALEE,
Malaking tulong talaga… and the dancers will be in GLEE…
Ang dasal nyong taimtim tunay na MARUBDOB,
Marahil siguradong maiiuwi nila ang GOLD10!
Salamat Pareng Joey at Lyd Solidum!!!!
