Paambon literally means to let the drizzle drizzle on you.
 
In this context, it leans towards more on metaphorical meaning which means "to rain on", though the sentence appears to be incomplete

Hi, I think this is not Tagalog but a -local- dialect. The sentence can be translated as we lost hope that there will be no more garbage. Magpapaanbon alone means missing [of hope, quote]

It IS Tagalog. It's just not a very well constructed sentence

Its song lyrics (I know the song) and roughly translates to
 
“Every year we make it rain, expect nothing less”.
 
Or
 
We make it rain every year , expect nothing wasted.
 
Both make sense in the context. The actual direct translation makes 0 sense. They are rappers to add more context.
 
It’s almost impossible to understand unless you listen to the song.
 
Song is Yearly by Ex B

@PinoyTaj Is Ex B generally not worth listening to for learning? I understand rap is never going to be eloquent and will have a lot of slang but if you listen to their songs a lot do they use "proper" tagalog.

@Kersheys
 
Just like rap anywhere they will use a mixture of proper , slang , idioms , metaphors etc. Imo it wouldn’t be worth learning from them unless you’re an advanced learner.

Songs may not be the best way to learn Tagalog (for beginners) as songs are mostly composed in a way that there's so many nuances. Besides, songs in Tagalog are often very literary/poetic for conversational Tagalog. I think Tagalog songs are for advance learners.
 
Movies and vlogs might be more apt for beginner and intermediate learners.
 
Learning Tagalog with songs is like learning English by reading Shakespeare or Chaucer.
 
For example: Kathang Isip by Ben&Ben is a very popular Tagalog song. But no one really speaks the way the lyrics were written.

@Kersheys ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL Tagalog is highly contextual...
 
So EVERY source is great...in CONTEXT....
 
Songs/Poems are stylized...
 
Sermons are stylized...
 
Political speeches are stylized...
 
LONG FLOWERY affix styles
 
Memos to file are formal but best not stylized...
 
Daily conversations are informal but usually come with a decent dose of PERSONAL style...
 
When you hear lonnnnnnnnnnnnnng affixes...STYLE. Depende...depende...di lahat
 
Sooooo...put your learning in CONTEXT...do you want HIGH STYLE...or formal style...or conversational style. Are you preaching...managing...or...
 
reaching for real connections.
 
Tagalog is more fun, din po. Kita kits sa labas.
