Manang Biday (Lyrics)-Filipino: Ilocano Folk Song

Manang Biday
Ilocano Folk Song

Manang Biday, ilukat mo man
’Ta bintana ikalumbabam
Ta kitaem ’toy kinayawan
Ay, matayakon no dinak kaasian

Siasinnoka nga aglabaslabas
Ditoy hardinko pagay-ayamak
Ammom ngarud a balasangak
Sabong ni lirio, di pay nagukrad

Denggem, ading, ta bilinenka
Ta inkanto ’diay sadi daya
Agalakanto’t bunga’t mangga
Ken lansones pay, adu a kita

No nababa, imo gaw-aten
No nangato, dika sukdalen
No naregreg, dika piduten
Ngem labaslabasamto met laeng

Daytoy paniok no maregregko
Ti makapidut isublinanto
Ta nagmarka iti naganko
Nabordaan pay ti sinanpuso

Alaem dayta kutsilio
Ta abriem ’toy barukongko
Tapno maipapasmo ti guram
Kaniak ken sentimiento

  3. "Manang" means "elder sister" and "Biday" is a name of a woman. It is "Sister Biday" in English.

  4. Sanny, that's right! this song title refers to an "older sister" whose name is Biday.

    Manang Biday is a famous Ilocano song. Please note that Ilocano is a language that's distinct from Tagalog.
