My Two Cents on Elmer Lyrics By Gloc 9


The Talumpati album of Gloc 9 is still hot in the market because of the single Walang Natira. We have been reminded about the brain drain problem here in the Philippines because of that song. Actually, we all know about it, but it would take a song Walang Natira to remind us about this ongoing problem and a call to those in the position to find ways to stop this.

Another single from the Talumpati album is about to sprout and the title of the song is Elmer featuring Jaq Dionisio. The song is as simple as the title.

But who is Elmer?

Elmer is a name of a guy, the story of the song revolves around Elmer. He is a guy aspiring to become a rapper. He looks up to Gloc 9 as his rapper idol, but unfortunately, he was blinded by other rapper with bad influences. As we all know, there are a lot of faces around us. And if we are aspiring to become somebody or to pursue our passion, we always look up for somebody to become our inspiration. The song is warning us to choose whom to look up to. We must be responsible and wise enough to determine who should we follow and idolize. Not everything we see on the outside are true, and not everything we believe is true. Just like Elmer, somebody might have incurred on his mind that in order to become a famous rapper, you must be a gangster, you must have a tattoo, you must be ASTIG. But Elmer is just a victim, somebody is using him for their own benefits and this will continue to happen. There are a lot of Elmers around us, it could be your brother, your sister, your neighbor, your friend and even you, and yeah, they need to be rescued, we need to be rescued.

And of course, the lyrics:
Ito ay Bayan ni Juan
Hindi Bayan ni Run
Dumating pa sa puntong ang braso ay may bayanihan
Bago magkalimutan wag magsapilitan
Walang papalitan
Hindi ito Katatawanan

Wag kang maniniwala sa paligid mo (hindi lahat ay totoo)
Mga naririnig at nakikita mo (isa-isang isipin to)
Piliin mo ang iniidolo (anong ginagawa’t binibigkas)
Dahil pagusad ay hindi ganun kadulas (kung ika’y makata sa pinas)

Kamusta ka na ido
Ako nga pala si Elmer
Ikaw ang aking idol
And idol ko na rapper
Mula nang marinig ko ang kanta mong simpleng tao
Ako ay nabaliw nung nilabas pa yung lando
May bago ka bang album?
Penge naman ng kopya
Meron ako nung luma
Ang kaso nga lang pirata
Sumusulat din ako
Marunong din akong mag rap
Gusto ko ipadinig ko sayo
Wag kang kukurap

Di lang ikaw ang ido ko
Pati rin yung stick figgaz
Bihira lang kasi sa Pilipinas ang matikas
Mabilis kang magsalita
Pero gangsta ka ba?
Meron ka na bang baril?
Nakulong ka na ba?
Ako rin hindi pa
Pero bukas baka sakali
May gang doon sa amin
Susubukan kong sumali
Basta tandaan mo lang
Ang pangalan ko ay Elmer
Ikaw ang aking idol
Idol ko na rapper

Wag kang maniniwala sa paligid mo (hindi lahat ay totoo)
Mga naririnig at nakikita mo (isa-isang isipin to)
Piliin mo ang iniidolo (anong ginagawa’t binibigkas)
Dahil pagusad ay hindi ganun kadulas (kung ika’y makata sa pinas)

Gloc 9 anong balita?
Narito ka rin pala?
Buti napadaan ka?
Mapapatatoo k aba?
Nakikita mob a to ang mga bago kong tattoo?
Mas maangas daw ang rapper pag marami kang tattoo
At makabayan ang dating
Isa pa cool ka!
Magpalagay ako ng watawat
May flag pole pa
Kasi sasali ako sa pa-audition ng isang rapper
At maging isang artist sa kanyang bagong record labe l
Ilan ba ang natanggap
Siguro mga singkwenta
Binigyan kami ng ticket
Para daw aming ibenta
Medyo Malabo ang sabi niya may album pa
Eh bakit hindi nya malabas ang album nya?
O baka naman busy lang kaya pare easy lang
Kasi mga mayabang lang ang mahilig magbilang
Pero sana maalala mo ang pangalan ko ay ELMER
Ikaw ang aking idol
Ang idol ko na rapper
Wag kang maniniwala sa paligid mo (hindi lahat ay totoo)
Mga naririnig at nakikita mo (isa-isang isipin to)
Piliin mo ang iniidolo (anong ginagawa’t binibigkas)
Dahil pag-usad ay hindi ganun kadulas (kung ika’y makata sa pinas)

Ito ay Bayan ni Juan
Hindi Bayan ni Run
Dumating pa sa puntong ang braso ay may bayanihan
Bago magkalimutan wag magsapilitan
Walang papalitan
Hindi ito Katatawanan
