humble sa lahat ng bagay na ginagawa namin
and sabihin mo ng may makuhang
award or parang kumabaga nag
-hit yung isa mong ginagawa
or maraming pumupuri sayo, ang
Star Magic nandiyan
to help keep my feet on the ground, para hindi lumaki ang ulo mo

-compete sa isa’t isa, siguro nagiging
conscious lang kami na dapat ‘pag
Star Magic ka, dapat ay maipagmamalaki ka ng kompanya
