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.
