Mencari timba si anak dara,
Di bawah sarang burung tempua;
Salam sembah pembuka bicara,
Selamat datang untuk semua.

Kalau pergi Tanjung Keramat,
Anak manis jangan diangkat;
Bersama kita memohon rahmat,
Moga majlis mendapat berkat.

Bukan rumput sebarang rumpun,

Buat santapan untuk pahlawan;
Tampil Puan kami meminta,
Madah ucapan kata aluan.

Lebat rumbia di Sungai Kedah,
Sayang senduduk di tepi muara;
Penganan mulia terletak sudah,
Samalah duduk menjamu selera.

Terbang sekawan si burung merbuk,
Batang selasih di Tanjung Dara;
Padamu tuan kami persembah,
Santapan kasih juadah mesra.
