Pasaway is a song by the J Brothers. The J Brothers are a band from the Philippines. It is a catchy number that is now not only topping the music charts on various television channels and radio stations in the Philippines, but is also the theme song for a popular reality television game show.

The song has lyrics like Pasaway pasaway pasaway, please walang away. The song is the title track on the J Brothers' latest album Pasaway. The J Brothers is a group comprising three siblings, whose first names (as well as their last name) begin with the letter J, who are currently a force to reckon with in Filipino popular music, namely Joy, Jay and Jim Jimenez.

The word Pasaway is a Tagalog word. Tagalog is the national language of the Philippines. The Tagalog word Pasaway is similar in meaning to the English word indolent, which means lazy. The songs of the J Brothers always carry a powerful message, and in this number too, they are critical about the attitudes of modern-day youngsters, whom they think are lazy and prefer to while away their time aimlessly instead of working hard like the people of previous generations.

First, it is from the Ilongo dialect which means naughty. 

In Tagalog: Stubborn is (matigas ang ulo)

In Cebuano: Stubborn is (migahi)

In Tagalog: Lazy is (tammad)

In Cebuano: Lazy is (tapulan)

Then again there are over 100 dialects in the Philippines so you which one to use. =)
