Magtanim ay di biro Magtanim ay di biroMaghapong nakayukoDi naman makatayoDi naman makaupoBisig ko'y namamanhidBaywang ko'y nangangawit.Binti ko'y namimintigSa pagkababad sa tubig.Kay-pagkasawing-paladNg inianak sa hirap,Ang bisig kung di iunat,Di kumita ng pilak. Sa umagang pagkagisingLahat ay iisipinKung saan may patanimMay masarap na pagkain.Halina, halina, mga kaliyag,Tayo'y magsipag-unat-unat.Magpanibago tayo ng lakasPara sa araw ng bukas(Braso ko'y namamanhidBaywang ko'y nangangawit.Binti ko'y namimintigSa pagkababad sa tubig.)
