A traditional song called Kiriring Pakiriring is often accompanied with the dance. The lyrics of the song are in Sinama language and are thought to have originated from Simunul where the language is often spoken. The song was later popularized when it was re-recorded by an unknown artist under the title, DayangDayang, however some of the lyrics have been changed and is considered by many to be largely gibberish since the altered words had no meaning behind them and were not related to any dialect or language. The meaning of its name is believed to be referring to Hadji DayangDayang Piandao, the first lady of Sulu, since the word dalay-dalay was a title given only to the daughters of the Sultan. Today, the version is widely known across the Philippines rather than the original but its origin and the artist who recorded it remains a mystery.
