I think the original version was released in 2004 (or before). It was a collaboration of OPM artists who did not ask for talent fee. The original Pilipino music artists included my idol the late Francis Magalona, Sharon Cuneta, April Boy Regino, Rey Valera, etc.
Their video can be seen here, and compare it with the 2012 video featured at the bottom of this article.
That was the song introduced with the advocacy of the theme “Wow Philippines” at that time.
The Lyrics are as follows.
Pilipinas, tara na! Byahe Tayo!
Byahe Tayo Lyrics
Ikaw ba’y nalulungkot
Ikaw ba’y napapagod
Araw gabi’y puro kayod?
