Sample text (Mangngan Da)

Cambasao te mangan da
Nacagacu ra si Innang
Cambasao, cambasao
Yu yaccan ay sinapa
Mappasensiya quitam ambit
Te awan tu cuarto tam
Natu lelao, natu lelao
Magyaccan quitam tu baca.

Translation (Let's Eat)

Come on here for it's time to eat
Mother is done cooking
Come here, come here
Our food is smoked fish
Let's be patient for a while
Because we have no money
For tomorrow, for tomorrow
We will eat some meat.
