I don't think the band Menudo is really that popular in Phillipines now. Way back in 80's the band is so popular and one of their hits is the song If you're not here . I remember seeing their poster when I was in grade school behind our doors.

Here's one of their poster but this isn't the poster we have before.


I guess you have noticed the little boy wearing yellow shirt. It's Ricky Martin, right? I think the band was remembered when Ricky Martin went back to the music scene with hit song Maria and went here in Phillippines for a concert. Now, Ricky became a Maria himself by telling to the world that's hes gay.

According to Wikipedia entry, Ricky Martin joined the group in 1984.  You can continue reading more about Menudo here.

I guess the message of this song would be pick up by my wife..hehe


If you're not here lyrcis/lyics

Gotta catch that plane at 7:30
Why haven't you come to say goodbye
Time is running out and I'm still waiting
I'm so lost without you, I could die
Yesterday you said you loved me
Everything seemed to be fine
Today you're not here, I'm so lonely
It's the waiting that's driving me out of my mind

Don't know how I'll sing in that big city
How can I perform if you're not there
This will be the worst of all my journeys
The image of your face will follow me everywhere

I need your tender kisses
The feel of your hands, your caress
Your perfume has me burning
My heart is yearning to touch you
I need you so much

If you're not here, by my side
Can't hold back the tears
I try to hide
Don't think I can take it
I know I won't make it
Make it without you

If you're not here, by my side
Only your love keeps me alive
No sense in dreaming
My life has no meaning
If you're not here

I need your tender kisses
The feel of your hands, your caress
Your perfume has me burning
My heart is yearning to touch you
I need you so much

If you're not here, by my side
Can't hold back the tears
I try to hide
Don't think I can take it
I know I won't make it
Make it withou you

If you're not here, by my side
Only your love keeps me alive
No sense in dreaming
My life has no meaning
If you're not here
