In Cebuano

Mga Langgam sa Katunggan
to the tune She’ll be coming round the mountain (more or less)

Daghang langgam nga madunggan sa katunggan (2x)
Daghang langgam nga madunggan (2x)
Daghang langgam nga madunggan sa katunggan.

Talabon, Tamsi-pipit, Tikarol
Bangkiyod, Mayang Bungol
Ganciang, Tamsi, Maya
Kasadya gyud sa langgam sa katunggan.

In English
Birds in the Mangrove
to the tune of She’ll be coming round the mountain (more or less)

We hear lots of birds in the mangrove (2x)
We hear lots of birds (2x)
We hear lots of birds in the mangrove (2x)

Egret, Flyeater, Kingfisher
Pied Fantail, Chestnut Munia
Glossy Starling, Sunbird, Tree Sparrow.
Oh how joyful are the birds in the mangrove.
