The song Philippine Geography by singer composer Yoyoy Villame is one of my favorite novelty music. Like any other Yoyoy Villame song it has a catchy tune that anyone who would hear the song will surely hum and sway.

Most words of the song is composed of the 77 major islands, provinces, cities, municipalities and towns in the Philippines that is arranged from north to south. Any students who would memorize the song will have no problem in their Philippine History Subject.

The song can be easily memorized if you where familiar of the places in the Philippines from north to south but if you are not then maybe it is time to familiarize the places of the pearl of the orient seas with the aid of the Philippine geography Song.

The complete lyrics of the song can be found below
