SI MANANG PULANA (sa Boie’nen)*

Si Manang Pulana nag panik sa te’ba’,
Na le’s-le’s nyo saya, nakita nyo letra;
Kaso basaen ko si, o ko; si, a, ka;
Nga kin bibilogon sadiri ta na ika

Si Manang Pulana nag binwit sa bobon,
Sine’badan pantat, kasiling binaton;
Kaso onga’en ko kin onong pinae’n,
Owating pute’ nga agko ge’le’ng-ge’leng.
