Bukit Tunjuk



bebuah salak serumpun
ame ku bilang seribu tujuh
ame betuah tunggu lah dusun
malang mak aku merantau jauh

lagi besak menebas larang
banyak dusun bada ku lalu
aku merantau membawa marah
balik ke dusun ngundang malu

oi nasibku malang
nanggung sedih sepanjang tahun
lagi kecik ditinggal umak
ame besak lenget di jalan


[nasib badan]

It's nice article. Thanks for remembering me to my ancestors at dusun :)

Anyway, the better lyrics of the song may be
aku merantau mbata parang (bring a machete)
balik ke dusun ngundang malu
