MÁNUKLUAN

Oyta i Ginang Nacionalista
Ngana king ulaga ning salita
"Ang 'di ma-al ang sariling wika
Masa-ol pa sa malansang isda"
Ita kanu'ng amanu nang Pepe
Inia mag-Filipinu king bale
Sibuknan, oneng dipan-ning-alti!
E pa rin asalikut ing gege

Misan a aldo merakap kami
Rugu ning kasiping kung kaklasi
Kákanta keng 'Atin Ku Pung Singsing'
'Nia balugbug mi tinakam pitik
Di Bokbok at Ketuy naman gulut
Pepamayaran dong limang pesus
'Tse e la kanu mig-Filipinu
Ing magdusa ing karelang gradu

"Painuman na," ngaku king kakasi
"Mauo ku't dila ku asne langi"
Kabirabira itang mestra mi
Ing patilya ku kayang penabit
Uling pane kung mángapampangan
"Sa labas ka ng silid-aralan!"
Ala ku kanung lugal king "bayan"
Metung ku mu yatang mánukluan

Kapilan na ku kaya paluban?
