Soleram, is an Indonesian folk song, parang kasin tunog ng "Longayban" natin sa Cordillera.
1. Soleram, soleram
Soleram anak yang manis.
Anak manis, janganlah dicium sayang
Kalau dicium, meralah pipinya.

2. Satu, dua, tiga, dan empat
Lima, enam, tujuh, delapan,
Kalau tuan dapat kawan baru sayang,
Kawan yang lama ditinggal kan jangan.

Lullaby, lullaby,
Lullaby sweet child.
Sweet child, do not kiss baby,
If you kiss, the cheeks go red.

One two three four,
Five six seven eight
If you can, dear new friend
The old friend who left will do.
