 SONG LYRICS 

Dungdunguen kanto unay unay,
Indayonen kanto iti sinamay
Tultuloden kanto nalumanay
Pagamuanen inka mailibay

Apaman nga inkanto makaturog
Iyabbongkonto ta rupam daytoy paniok.
Tapnon dinakanto kagaten ti lamok
Ken maimasmonto't maturog.

*Annay, pusok, annay, annay,
Nasaem, naut-ut la unay.
Itdem kaniak ta pannaranay
Ta kaasiak a maidasay.
