The Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition Theme Song

If you must know, I am from the Philippines, so here’s a little tribute to the motherland. Also, Theme Songs is back!

I rarely watch local shows but this one is an exception. I’ve always loved The Biggest Loser franchise so when I found out the Philippines (there was already an Asian version) was coming up with one—and in a time slot that is quite convenient for me—I could not help but watch. At the time of posting this, the show is about to enter the top 10.

The theme for the show is very catchy. Its actual title is “Sabay Tayo“, and not “Magpapayat” as I (and I’m sure some of you did) originally thought. The song is by the band Mayonnaise; quite funny actually as I’m sure there’s an inside joke there somewhere (lead singer Monty Macalino can be a contestant—no offense and I actually do know Monty personally). I’m pretty sure he also is responsible for the writing.

The song is not (yet?) part of any commercial release.

In addition, knowing Monty, I’m sure it’s no coincidence the riff sounds exactly like Rivermaya’s “Elesi” (see video below).

Below is the official video of “Sabay Tayo”.

The Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition theme song lyrics

Kamusta ka, aking kaibigan?
O pwede mo ba akong samahan na?

Tumalon (nang mataas)
Sumigaw (nang malakas)
Yumugyog (sumayaw)
Tumakbo (at gumalaw)
Tara na (sumama ka)
Wag kanang (mag-alala)
Eto na, sabay tayo magpapayat

Wag kanang mag dahilan
Kasi lalo lang lumalaki ang ating tiyan

Tumalon (nang mataas)
Sumigaw (nang malakas)
Yumugyog (sumayaw)
Tumakbo (at gumalaw)
Tara na (sumama ka)
Wag kanang (mag-alala)
Eto na, sabay tayo magpapayat

O di ba kayang kaya
Basta’t dapat lang laging masaya ka

Tumalon (nang mataas)
Sumigaw (nang malakas)
Yumugyog (sumayaw)
Tumakbo (at gumalaw)
Tara na (sumama ka)
Sa mundo (na kay ganda)
Wag kanang (mag-alala)
Di kita iiwan

Tumalon (nang mataas)
Sumigaw (nang malakas)
Yumugyog (sumayaw)
Tumakbo (at gumalaw)
Tara na (sumama ka)
Wag kanang (mag-alala)
Heto na, sabay tayo magpapayat
Magpapayat
