Song Feature: Igorota, Girl of my Dream by Jun Utleg



 Lyrics

On a smooth gray rock

By the river bank

She was singing a tune

‘Neath the morning sun

She was playing a flute

And the songbirds were dumbed

As they listen to her wonderful melody

And the air was filled with every note she’s playin’

Slowly I sat by her side


Igorota, girl of my dreams

You’re the most precious gift that i ever had

Igorota, beat of my heart

I’ll go on loving you throughout my life


Igorota, girl of my dreams

You’re the most precious gift that i ever had

Igorota, beat of my heart

I’ll go on loving you throughout my life


You are my day, my morning sun

You forever be my only one

She puts down the flute

and sweetly she smiled

and she asked me, “why are you staring at me?”

And i hold her close

In a songbird sang,

I whispered to her, “I LOVE YOU”


Igorota, girl of my dreams

You’re the most precious gift that i ever had

Igorota, beat of my heart

I’ll go on loving you throughout my life

Cordillera - An Igorot woman-farmer, one of the hundreds of Cordillerans who migrated to Mindanao, was crowned yesterday as the 2020 Cabbage Queen in the season-long Mindanao Vegetable Derby.

The first-ever Mindanao Vegetable Derby is an initiative of the Mindanao Development Authority (MinDA) to improve productivity, address poverty and rev up the region's economic recovery.

Beatriz Homonlay, from Sumilao, Bukidnon, bested all other farmers, mostly men, producing the best quality Cabbage in the derby which started as early as July.

Many other Cordilleran families are scattered all over Mindanao, including Kabacan, Cotabato.

All of them are engaged in a work they know best - farming.

Known as quiet and industrious, most of the Igorot families are successful farmers.
