The "Memeng Version" again, hahaha


Words by J. Roel Lungay

Music by Romeo C. Mascariñas

Performed by Romeo! Romeo!

There’s a highway down the road
People trav‘ling, young and old
Which direction I don’t know but I was told
It’s called the road to nowhere.

There’s a dude in jet-black hair
With guitar and picking tunes
Where he came from no one knows but I was told
He came from road to nowhere.

There’s a road to nowhere
Many people standing there.
Road to nowhere,
I wanna do my dancing there;
Like a marketplace
It’s crowded and you can’t hear
It’s a road to nowhere
Really, road to nowhere.


Down that road you can’t show your face,
Expect to be embraced.
I was told you are on your own
Or you can hit the road!

Love to travel down that road,
No return and no regrets,
Love to tell my kids one day when I am old
I’ve been to the road of nowhere.

(Repeat Refrain)

Like a marketplace
It’s full of crowd, but then
It’s a road to nowhere.
Yeah, really road to nowhere.
Like a marketplace
It’s full of crowd, but then
It’s a road to nowhere.
You bet, it’s road to nowhere.

Year 2009 is a trailblazing year for us as we embark on a new musical venture we've never tried before - collaborative songwriting and self-publishing. It's a dream we never dared explore in years past when our minds were clear, pure and innocent (LoL), and our imaginations, ambitions and dares were kinda at its peak (huh!). Even though we're both musicians who grew up - and played sports - together, and whose passion for music is beyond anyone's knowing and description, our respective musical journeys have never really crossed paths before except at informal and not-so-formal gatherings (e.g. barkada gatherings, music club gigs, etc) where one played and the other appreciated, in company of boyhood friends. Thirty something years, as a matter of fact, such life's arrangement seemed to be the soup du jour of a lifetime between us from years 1976 to 2008. Then 2009 came and all of a sudden, boom!(forgive us for sounding too cocky and ambitious, hahaha), like an old friend would like to say, an "ala-Lennon-McCartney/Bernie Taupin-Elton John" meeting of the minds and hearts almost instantaneously became the rule of the day and of our newfound fervor, writing songs together!


Roro Music is a combination of two musical minds both of whom are true Dagohoy-blooded Boholanos. It's a collaboration founded on years of friendship, common life experience and shared interest but whose current musical quest and aspiration go beyond the limits and boundaries of some home-grown and culturally-embraced influences of the present time (pop culture), in pursuit of something new and unfamiliar, yet very special (we're going country!), in the hope of breaking new grounds (for future performing artists), creating fresh perspectives (for budding songwriters) and laying new platforms for many ipodcasters (modern music lovers) to enjoy, celebrate and tread on in the many years to come.

Musically yours,

Romeo C. Mascariñas & J. Roel Lungay
