This study investigated the functions of the oral tradition of cacap-cacapan in marital customs which is based on the social activities of the people in the city of Lubuklinggau to get a clear picture of preservation of cacap-cacapan from time to time. The results of this study showed that cacap-cacapan had: 1) the aesthetic function analysis indicating the beauty of rhyming texts read by the program guide, through the structure and intonation and selection of the right words; 2) the pragmatic function which is based on the analysis that human instincts are a source of knowledge and wisdom in revealing problems in life; 3) the ethical function of oral tradition of the community as a means of education; 4) the historical function that forms civilization, identity, and cultural preservation.
