“Si AKO”

Ako yung tipo ng tao

Na tahimik at walang kibo

Ngunit kapag nakilala mo ng lubusan

Ang ating samahan ay puro kasiyahan.

Ako yung taong masunurin

Maasahan sa anumang gawain

Masayahing anak ng aking ama’t ina

Mabait at makulit na kuya

Masipag na estudyante

Nag-aaral ng mabuti

Nais makapagtapos ng kolehiyo

Gusting maging isang inhinyero

Matapat na kaibigan

Laging maasahan

Sa kahit anong mang problema

Isang tawag lang, nariyan na.

Ako asasa
