Laskar Pelangi

Indonesian
Mimpi adalah kunci. Untuk kita menaklukkan dunia
Berlarilah tanpa lelah. Sampai engkau meraihnya
Laskar pelangi. Takkan terikat waktu
Bebaskan mimpimu di angkasa. Warnai bintang di jiwa

Menarilah dan terus tertawa. Walau dunia tak seindah surga
Bersyukurlah pada yang kuasa. Cinta kita di dunia
Selamanya...

Cinta kepada hidup. Memberikan senyuman abadi
Walau hidup kadang tak adil. Tapi cinta lengkapi kita
Laskar pelangi. Takkan terikat waktu
Jangan berhenti mewarnai. Jutaan mimpi di bumi

Menarilah dan terus tertawa. Walau dunia tak seindah surga
Bersyukurlah pada yang kuasa. Cinta kita di dunia
Selamanya...

English
Dream is our key to conquer the world.
Run tirelessly until you make it come true.
The rainbow troop won't be bound by time.
Set your dreams free in the sky. Paint the stars in your soul with colors.

So just dance and keep on laughing, though the world is not as beautiful as the paradise.
Be grateful to the almighty, for our love in this world is immortal.

Our love to this life gives eternal smile.
Though sometimes life might unfair, but love makes us complete.
The rainbow troop won't be bound by time.
Set your dreams free in the sky. Paint the stars in your soul with colors.

So just dance and keep on laughing, though the world is not as beautiful as the paradise.
Be grateful to the almighty, for our love in this world is immortal.

Dangdut is The Music of My Country

Indonesian
Siapa tidak mengakui perbedaan. Tidak pernah diajari di sekolah.
Semua orang macam-macam diciptakan. Cakep atau jelek semua punya perasaan
Ada orang Batak, ada orang Jawa, ada orang Ambon, ada juga orang Padang, ada orang Menado, ada orang Madura, ada orang Papua, tidak disebut jangan marah

Apakah yang dapat menyatukan kita? Salah satunya dengan musik
Dangdut is the music of my country

Dangdut is the music of my country, my country, of my country
Dangdut is the music of my country, my country, of my country. Oh my country

Kalo mengaku ngerti tentang persatuan, mengapa adu domba mudah dilakukan
Kenapa semua mudah hilang kesabaran. Kenapa semua mudah diprovokasikan
Ada kulit hitam, ada kulit putih, ada rambut panjang, ada juga rambut keriting, ada mata besar, ada mata sipit, ada orang kaya, ada juga orang miskin

English
Whoever does not respect differences, has learnt nothing in school
Human beings are created in various kinds. They all have hearts whether look nice or ugly.

There are the Bataknese , there are the Javanese, there are the Ambonese, there are the Padangnese, there are the manadonese, there are the Maduranese, there are the Papuanese, left unmentioned don't get angry.

What can unite us? One way is with music
Dangdut is the music of my country

Dangdut is the music of my country, my country, of my country
Dangdut is the music of my country, my country, of my country. Oh my country

If unity is claimed to be understood, then why is everybody easily pitted against each other?
Why does everybody easily loss their temper? Why is everything easily provoked?

There are black and white skinned-people, there are long hair and curly-haired people, there are big and slanted eyes, there are the rich and also the poor man.

Yang Terbaik Bagimu

Indonesian
Teringat masa kecilku. Kau peluk dan kau manja
Indahnya saat itu buatku melambung
Disisimu terngiang hangat nafas segar harum tubuhmu
Kau tuturkan segala mimpi-mimpi serta harapanmu

Kau ingin ku menjadi yang terbaik bagimu
Patuhi perintahmu, jauhkan godaan
Yang mungkin kulakukan dalam waktuku beranjak dewasa
Jangan sampai membuatku terbelenggu jatuh dan terinjak

Reff :
Tuhan tolonglah sampaikan sejuta sayangku untuknya
Ku terus berjanji tak kan khianati pintanya
Ayah dengarlah betapa sesungguhnya ku mencintaimu
Kan ku buktikan ku mampu penuhi maumu

Andaikan detik itu kan bergulir kembali
Kurindukan suasana basuh jiwaku
Membahagiakan aku yang haus akan kasih dan sayangmu
Tuk wujudkan segala sesuatu yang pernah terlewati

English
Remembering my childhood, you hugged and indulged me.
What a wonderful moment, I felt like flying.
By your side I could feel you fragrance and warm breath.
You told me all your dreams and hopes.

You wanted me to be the best for you.
Obeying your order to stay away from temptations that might misguide me as I grew up.
And not to let it trap and bring me down.

God, please help me to send a million loves for him.
I will keep my promise not to betray his hopes.
Father please listen how much I truly love you.
I will prove you I can fulfill your wishes.

I wish that the moment could be brought back
I miss that moment to wash my soul and bring happiness to me who is always thirsty of your love and affection. To bring into reality all the things that have been forgotten and left behind.

Antartika

​Indonesian
Sekian lama. Ku memendam rasa ini
Terlalu dalam. Berat hatiku menahan
Dengar aku sejenak. Sedikit waktu berarti
Beri aku kesempatan. Bicara tentang isi hati

Reff:
Bila kau terima aku kan mencoba mengajakmu tuk terbang ke angkasa
Keujung dunia tujuh benua, lima samudera
Sampai Antartika, Antartika
Ku akan mencoba yang aku bisa

Dengar aku sejenak. Sedikit waktu berarti
Beri aku kesempatan. Bicara tentang isi hati

Dengar aku sejenak untuk ku menyatakan selama ini apa yang ku rasa
Sudah terlalu lama mungkin ini saatnya ke Antartika, Antartika
Ku akan mencoba yang aku bisa

Come on baby
To the highest mountain
To the moon and stars
We can touch the sky
You and I Ke Antartika

English
For quite a while, I've been hiding my feelings
It's getting too deep, too heavy to hold
Listen to me... just for a minute
Give me a chance to speak my heart

If you accept me, I'll try to take you fly to the sky
Around the world, seven continent, five ocean
If you accept me, I'll try to take you fly to the sky
Around the world, seven continent, five ocean
Till we reach Antartica, Antartica
I will see what I can do

Listen to me... just for a minute
Give me a chance to speak my heart

Listen to me, I am trying to say something
What I've been feeling for all this time
It has been too long. Maybe it's time to go to Antartica, Antartica.
I'll see what I can do
