- Japanese: 安里屋ユンタ (asadoya yunta)
The original Yaeyama lyrics tell of a girl named Kuyaama, from Taketomi Island, who is to be given as a bribe to an official. She refuses him, however, and the official takes a different girl as his wife. Kuyaama marries a man from the island, and goes on to live a poor but happy life.
