Flores rosa ni bonito
lamlam yan agaga';
hånao yan este na kattå-ko
guato gi todo i guinaiya-ko.

Pretty rose flower
shiny and red;
go with this my letter
there to all my love.

Gupu duro fan
yan i gråsia siha.
Chule' i minagof-ho
yan i fottunå-ho.

Fly intensely please
with all graces.
Take my happiness
and my fortune.

Written by Frank Lizama, 1975
