Dear kuya, kumusta ka na dyan?
Anong balita, malamig ba dyan? Dito mainit
pero kung bumagyo, para bang lahat ng tubig sa mundo ay nandito
Matagal na rin, mula nang ika’y magpasyang subukan
ang swerte, at abutin ang yong mga pangarap
Sa ibang bansa kung saan ikaw ay lagging mag-isa
kami tuloy dito, nag-aalala

[chorus]
Nasan ka man ngayon, ano mang oras na
ika’y may kailangan, tawag ka lang sa amin
at parang nandito ka na rin

Oo nga pala, kung nasayo pa ang checkered na
polo ko, sa yo na yan. Hanap kana rin
ng maraming mapapaglibangan dahil balita ko
mahal daw ang sine dyan
Dambuha daw mga pinapakain dyan
tataba ka malamang. Miss mo bang magtagalog?
Kuya pag may kumausap sayo
galingan mong mag-ingles, galingan mo kuya

[chorus ulit tapos]

Dear kuya, hinahanap ka ni mama at daddy
sulat ka palagi.
Miss ka namin, pati nga kapitbahay nagtatanong
san ka raw nagpunta? san ka raw nagpunta?
Nasan ka na…
Kuyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

    General CommentIt's a song dedicated to the several young men who work hard abroad trying their luck for their family. This song is actually a kid's letter to his kuya (older brother), who has been working overseas for quite a long time, whom he really misses and shows a great deal of concern for. The chorus:

    Nasan ka man ngayon, ano mang oras na
    ika’y may kailangan, tawag ka lang sa amin
    at parang nandito ka na rin

    is the kid assuring his brother that no matter what, no matter when, his family will always be there for him, full -support. However, I have a hunch that it isn't totally a song of concern, but a song of a kid's dealing with loss. The line:

    Matagal na rin, mula nang ika’y magpasyang subukan
    ang swerte, at abutin ang yong mga pangarap
    Sa ibang bansa kung saan ikaw ay lagging mag-isa
    kami tuloy dito, nag-aalala

    probably depicts that the older brother, who has been abroad for a "very long time," might have been killed sometime during is work, but his kid bro still believes he's just there and continues to write to him trying his best to convince himself that his brother is still alive.
