Here are the lyrics of “Tayo Ay Dabawenyo”:

Sa dakong timog ng Mindanaw
May isang lungsod na hinirang
Ang likas niyang kayamanan
Ay walang kapantay

Mga bundok, dagat, lupain
Laging sagana sa pagkain
At ang magagandang tanawin
Kadluan ng aliw

Mutyang lungsod ng Dabaw
Sa iyong paglalakbay
Sa mithing kaunlaran
Ikaw ay paglilingkuran

Tayo ay Dabawenyo
Na tapat at totoo
Pangarap ay matamo
Kaluwalhatian mo
Lungsod ng paraiso
