Di Tanjong Katong, airnya biru
Di situ tempatnya dara jelita                            [Xue En throws flowers & wave, be quick though, see below]
Duduk sekampung, lagikan rindu
Kononlah pula nun jauh di mata     Xue En plays the first two lines (upbeat tune, the rest sings pantun one)

Pulau Pandan jauh ke tengah
Gunung Daik bercabang tiga
Hancur badan di kandung tanah
Budi yang baik di kenang jua 
     Xue En plays a stanza, she plays the chorus first 2 lines, the rest sing to end

Kalau ada jarum patah
Jangan simpan di dalam peti
Kalau ada silap sepatah
Jangan disimpan di dalam hati

Di Tanjong Katong, airnya biru
Di situ tempatnya dara jelita
Duduk sekampung, lagikan rindu
Kononlah pula nun jauh di mata           Jonathan: Terima kasih x 2 (he he he) [clapping gesture, smile]
