BIKOL SONGS: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13
ANO DAW IDTONG SA GOGON?
by Benjamin A. Claveria
The Buhinon and English versions below are the original interpretations of the author.

Another favorite Bikol song is Ano Daw Idtong sa Gogon?. It has religious overtones. This must be one reason why the Bikolanos, who are well-known for their religious fervor, like it so much.

Buhinon
Standard Bikol
English





ONO DAW ADTONG SA GOGON? (Buhinon)

Ono daw adtong sa gogon
Bulawan bagang pagkiten?
Kaso saken ng raneyen,
Burak palan ning baghagen.

Kaso gegetesen ko na,
'Sad a boses nag sayuma,
Bai oaman ngaya pag getsa,
Tanem aan ni Maria.

ANO DAW IDTONG SA GOGON?
(
Standard Bikol)

Ano daw idtong sa gogon
Bulawan bagang pag hilngon?
Kaso sakuyang dolokon,
Burak palan ning balagon.

Kaso sakuyang kikua,
Sarung boses nag sayuma,
Hari man ngaya pagkuaha,
Burak iyan ni Maria

WHAT MIGHT THAT BE IN THE COGON?
(
English)

What might that be in the cogon
Glinting like bright gold in the sun?
I went near it and found that it was,
A vine flow'r half hid in the grass.

When I tried to pluck the flow'r rare,
A voice from above cried, "Forbear,"
"Pluck it not," the voice said to me,
"That is for the Virgin Mary."
