Lipus Minakahel


Singer: Victoria Ballada, Itbayat

Lipus minakahel ko ava du kavadinohan
Lipus minakahel ko ava du kavantan
Ni dawong co du tana
Ni da ngay ko ro hanit
O madadatiw ka pa do vol
dek ni loy ina mo
Lalawolovongan ko na imo
no pito a vinokeh
Do ka ayod ko a michawy oran.
I did not find my relative (beloved) among the Valino vines
I did not find my relatives (beloved) among the Vangto trees
I bow to the ground
I look up into the heaven
You were still very small inside your mother’s womb
I preserve for you this seventy centavos
for the future
I did it from my heart.
