Song No. 2
Iloilo Ang Banwa Ko
Iloilo ang banwa ko ginahingadlan
Matam-is nga pulong nga akon ginmat-an,
Dili ko ikaw bulagan, banwa kong nalulut-an.
Ikaw ang ginkuhaan sang kalipayan.
Ilonggo ako nga tunay
Nga nagapuyo sa higad sang baybay
Manami magki-ay, ki-ay
Sa tagipusuon bug-os ang kalipay.
English Translation Iloilo my hometown so named Sweet words I used to live, I won't forsake you, my beloved hometown. You are the source of happiness. I am a genuine Ilonggo Living by the sea shore Dancing gracefully, daintily In my heart full of happiness.
