lyrics

KABAU

Anak nelayan mambaok cangkua
Mananam ubi di tanah darek
Baban sakoyan dapek dipikua
Budi saketek taraso barek

Anak ikan dimakan ikan
Gadang ditabek anak tenggiri
Ameh bukan perak pun bukan
Budi saketek rang haragoi

Anjalai tumbuah di munggu
Sugi-sugi di rumpun padi
Supayo pandai rajin baguru
Supayo tinggi naikkan budi

Alu tataruang patah tigo
Samuik tapijak indak mati

Tarandam-randam indak basah
Tarapuang-apuang indak hanyuik
Anyuik labu dek manyauak
Hilang kabau dek kubalo
Anguak anggak geleng amuah
Unjuak nan tidak babarikan
