e ku pinay
e ku kana
nanu ku kaya?
sabyan kuna mu tau ku
kalupa ring makabasa

o makarandam kanini kaya?

makasumami mekad pin
ing sasalita nang sasalita
king kebayitan mung likwan
dapot kaburyan pin kaya
ing lakwan ka kaluguran?

mangatapang la ding aliwa
karing karaya miparayu
ding linasang kapanuldwan
mengapilit malsa balutan
minta king marayung lawta

makanyan man e sisisyan
makalitung pamalagyu
neng ing pangarayu
ikit lakwas ing likwan
nanu ya mo ta ing lagyu.

maulaga ing mimulagat mata
asuri ing denasan
alwang lugal
alwang diwa
bayung bukas, bayung tula.

ding yamut makakutkut
mabye pin gabun tibwan
menalete balag ning kapagalan
keni lugal gatas at pulut talubang
o yan king pupul abe ko ngan
