Fighting man!" "Fighting man!"

Language: English after the Sundanese

"Fighting man!" "Fighting man!"
Little boys are circling, circling, little warriors circling, circling,
"Jong jong jay!"
Each watching out to take advantage of his foe,
They want to wound each other; now the gong sounds 
"tung dongdeet dongdeet."
Swordsman quickly pokes his sword,
Now his foe is fallen, foe is fallen,
"Dongdeet, dongdeet chrekk!
Dongdeet, fallen down, chrekk!"
