Dampi ng hangin sa umaga’s nandito
Lamig nito iyong madarama
Sa gabi’y ilaw iba-iba

Amoy ng pasko’y nandito na

Simpleng kasiyahan lang

Patawarin mo ako
Sa piling mo wala ako
Kalaban ko pangungulila
Wag mag alala sa puso ko walang iba
Gusto ko lang sabihin
Miss kita

Repeat chorus

I miss you baby
I’ve been missing you
Merry Christmas baby

Industry Leader Magazine (ILM) also reported the rumor and added that the reason why Apple might launch the iPad 3 in February is because it wants to "upstage Samsung’s (also a rumor but there is high possibility that it pushes through) February launch of their own next-generation Galaxy Tab."
