Ay, Saeamat
ni Melchor F. Cichon

Ay, saeamat
Ay may eubong eon man
Sa amon nga barangay—
Makasamit eon man ako't
Sutanghon ag lechon.

Pirme eon lang abi nga dayok, ag bakagan
Ro suea namon ni Nanay.
Ay, saeamat
Ay may eubong eon man
Sa amon nga barangay—
Makasamit eon man ako't
Siopao, may Coke o Pepsi
Pa nga paaman.

Pirme eon lang abi nga kamote
Ro ginapamahaw namon ni Nanay.

Ay si Tatay ginkangay ni Hepe M
Sa Kampo K
Ay kuno nagpakaon imaw
It limang katawo
Nga may bitbit nga sako
Ay hasta makaron
Ra'y Tatay nga sanggutan
Hay owa pa
Hibag-euti.
