A tribute to its composer former Iloilo Congressman Augurio Abeto (also a noted Ilonggo essayist during the Golden Age of Hiligaynon literature 1920-1940)
Dalawidaw is a bird.

Dalawidaw ikaw kon mag-ambahanon,
Yuhum mong balanihon may binalaybay;
Duhang larawan mo sa dalamgohanon,
Diwata sa bukid kag kataw sa baybay.

Diwata sa talon, bulak nga ilahas
Sa kapalaran nga daw gapasimpalad,
Alibangbang lamang labing makahas,
Makigsuyop sang kayuyom sinang sipad.

Yadtong kagab-ihon nga punong himaya,
Sa isang payag kita nagsumpa-anay.
Didto ta pinang-gas ang dili malaya,
Putling handumanan sang gugmang panganay.

You are dalawidaw (a bird) when you sing,
Your magnetic smile is a poetry ,
In the dream you have two images,
A forest fairy and a sea nymph.

That beautiful night, A glorious one,
In a small hut we pledged our love,
And it was there we planted a living seed,
A pure remembrance of our first love.
