Ranga

"Ranga" is a Bicolano love song composed by Emilio Ilarde, and recorded by former Senator Edgar "Eddie" Ilarde of Iriga City.

Ranga nin pusong nagtitios
Burak na sangkap nin hamot
Uya an buhay ko simo dolot
Lilinya nin pagkaherak pusong namomoot

Bitoon kang maliwanag
sa diklom nin kabanggihan
Puso kong nariribongan
Nagbareta nin tingrawan

Kun dae kang pagkaherak
Na ako mo pabayaan
Puso kong simong binihag
Magpapatimasang
