I'm a part of the Manila Tagalog linguistic hegemony (heh) and know literally only 8 words of any other Philippine language. (6 Ilocano and 2 Pangasinense)
However, with the help of a translation from this person's Friendster page, I can at least bring you this song in Kapampangan, about the 1991 eruption of Mt. Pinatubo.

Pinatubo - ArtiSta.Rita

Indu, iri kama ku
Mandakup kung puyu
Aku nara ku
Tinagal kung tau
Bapa, iri kama ku
Mandakup kung puyu
Aku nara ku
Uy ha

Asna kang karatun
Bunduk kang matudtud
Alang kamalemale
Maskup na ka kilub
Tangis na ning balen
Taung mengapaburen
Pait da king pusu
Mitipun king sepukuan mu

You were very peaceful
A slumbering mountain
Who could have known
You were already sick inside
The nation grieves
For the neglected ones
The bitterness in their hearts
Filled your core

Sinapak na ka rugu
E mu na inagyu
Daya mung bubukal
Indu kang mapagal

You became full
You couldn't take it
Your blood smoldering
You're an exhausted mother

Chorus:
Mimua ka, Pinatubu
Indu kung Pinatubu
Silbag mu na ing mua mu
Mispak ya ing pusu mu
Mimua ka, Pinatubu
Indu kung Pinatubu
Silbag mu na ing lua mu
Pinatubu, aintindian ku

Chorus:
You were angry, Pinatubo
My Mother Pinatubo
Then you scattered your anguish
Your heart was shattered
You were angry, Pinatubo
My Mother Pinatubo
Then you scattered your anguish
But, Pinatubo, I understand

Igaye tana may naimya
Dag-ay Pinatubu
Mikakalaban king kaglaban
Na ing yabe ya yamampan

Minagus ka daya
Migising la ring sabla
Migising mu naman
Lugud ding keraklan
Aral na ning bulkan
Aral ning ninuman
Abitan mo patas para
Padalang tanara ning Dios

Your blood flowed
And the people awoke
What was awakened, too
Was the charity of people
The teaching of the volcano
The teaching of everyone
Pull them all up so
God will bless them

Banua na ing milabas
Makalaue na keng bukas
Magpiyak na ka't painaua
Apisan na ka ning banua

Years have passed
Now looking at tomorrow
Close your eyes now and rest
The heavens will caress you

Painaua na ka Pinatubu
Indu kung Pinatubu
Kinayap na ing mua mu
Sugat king pusu mu
Painaua na ka Pinatubu
Indu kung Pinatubu
Manatili na sa ing karurukan mu

Rest now, Pinatubo
My Mother Pinatubo
Your anger has subsided
With the wound in your heart
Rest now, Pinatubo
My Mother Pinatubo
May your greatness remain

Indu, iri kama ku
Mandakup kung puyu
Aku nara ku
Uy ha
