En la dulzura de mi afán,
Junto contigo na un peñon
Mientras ta despierta
El buán y en
Las playas del Pasay
Se iba bajando el sol.

— Pidgins and Creoles” by John Holm

 

In the drugs of my afghan,
Juntas continue to pen down
Meanings to despair
In a ball in
Lost players then passe
Say bye, the band of salt.

Sa mandurusa ng hapon, 
Punto kodigo sa penoy 
Miryenda natin despedida 
Ay, buwan ba yan. 
Ang plaza ng Panay 
Sa iba banda asukal.
