"The Apl Song" is the eleventh track from the album Elephunk. In the song, talks about his life back in the Philippines and his experience as a Filipino American. The chorus is spoken in Tagalog.

A rough translation of the chorus would be as follows:

"Come closer friends and listen

I have news from my homeland

I would like to share stories and the events going on

In the promised land".

The last part of the song is sampled from A Tribe Called Quest's 1993 song '8 Million Stories'.
