Agusan Up, We Go Jingle with lyrics

Wala na ta nahilayo
Sa gipangandoy ta nga kalambuan
Hugot gyud ang pagsalig ko
Naa na kanato ang kadaugan

Sa gihiusang paningkamot
Ang kauswagan 'tong ma kab'ot
Sa gihiusang liderato
ug katawhan ning Agusan

AGUSAN UP, we go
AGUSAN UP, we go
Ngadto sa tunhay'ng paglambo
AGUSAN UP, we go
AGUSAN UP, we go
Sa katumanan sa atong mga damgo

Ikaw'g ako kabahin ta
Sa gipangandoy nga lunhaw'ng Agusan
Dako gyud ang patuo ta
Naa na kanato ang kagawasan

Sa makanunayong pag-amoma
Ang kauswagan maangkon ta
Sa pagproseso ug pag-ugmad
Kaugmaon, Sandigan ta

Agus Agusan Up
Mag uban tang tanan, sa hiniusang lihok
Malamboong Agusan

AGUSAN UP, we go
AGUSAN UP, we go
Ngadto sa tunhay'ng paglambo
AGUSAN UP, we go
AGUSAN UP, we go
Sa katumanan sa atong mga damgo (2x)
