Romeo! Romeo! Performs TMOPB (Video)


Words by Rev. J. Roel Lungay

Music by Rev. Arnold Zamora

Arranged and performed by Romeo C. Mascariñas

A priest forever, a priest for life
Called to serve - to live and die.
Through many years and happy tears,
Gods joy abounds, His grace supplied.

A priest for always, a priest I am,
In poverty I am to be;
A good example for all to see -
Salt of the earth, light to be seen.

You called me to proclaim your goodness to the world;
Make peace with everyone, uniting all as one;
May all the sacraments, in your most holy name,
Lead us to holiness - the mark of priestly bliss.

A priest for Christ, a priest for love,
A priest for all, thats who I am;
One blessed vision in Christ our God
For all his chosen, anointed hands.

(Repeat Chorus 2x)

May all the sacraments, in your most Holy Name,
Lead us to holiness - the mark of priestly bliss.

A priest of God, a priest I am!

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
