Kotao Kotao

Medio ang kaibara ang kantang dia, nadedemdeman ko si tatay. Ing post ko dia tenged lamang sa tatlo ka cuyonon words. Ang Kotao-kotao, Baridad, asta Itaplak.

Kotao kotao kong aga kotao kotao kong apon;
Mapatay sa gegma baridad sa getem;
Indi maingaranan ang pito ka birso;
Ang panyong palaran itaplak sa olo.

Crowning in the morning, Crowning in the afternoon;
Die of love, but not of hunger.
The seven verses cannot be mentioned
But the lucky  handkerchief must be palced on one’s head.
