SONG LYRICS

Condansoy, inom tuba Laloy
Dili co moinom, tuba pait aslom
Ang tuba sa baybay patente mo angay
Talacsan nga diutay pono ang malaway.

 

 

 ENGLISH TRANSLATION OF LYRICS

 Condansoy, drink some tuba Laloy
No, I won't drink at all, tuba is bitter-sour
Tuba sold by the seashore ought to get a patent
For a little glass of it will make you drool.

 

In this song, Condansoy is a boy who is being asked to drink Laloy's tuba, a coconut wine. He wisely refuses to.
