When the warship's left Manila
Sailing proudly o'er the sea deep blue sea
Many sailors hearts were filled with sad regret
Looking backward to this island
Where they spent such happy hours, happy hours
Making love to every pretty girl they've met

Well up stopped a little sailor
With his pride eyes all aglow all aglow
Saying, "Take a look at my girl's photograph."
Then the sailors gathered 'round him
Just to look upon her face smiling face
And he said I love my Filipino baby

She's my Filipino baby
She's my treasure and my pet loving pet
Her teeth are bright and pearly
And her hair as black as jet

Her lips are sweet as honey
And her heart is true, I know true, I know
She's my darling little dark eyed Filipino

In a little rustic cottage
In the port of Philippines, Philippines
Dwells a pretty little maiden all alone
And she's thinking of her darling
Who is far across the sea deep blue sea
And her heart beats true for him and him alone

Then one day he whispered darling
I've come back from Caroline South Caroline
I've come back to claim the only girl I love
Then that night there was a wedding
As the ships crew gathered round all around
And he wed his little Filipino baby

She's my Filipino baby
She's my darling little dark eyed Filipino
