PAK ALI, PENJUAL GULALI


ayam jago berkokok
pertanda hari baru
pakai kopyah biru
baju hijau kokok


duhai susah sungguh
tubuh penat berpeluh
demi anak bersepuluh
tak hendak berlabuh


api menyala merah
wajan panas sudah
air segayung jatuh
gula pasir meluruh


gulali gulali gulaliiiiii!
ayo siapa mau beli?
halal dan pasti legi


gulali gulali gulali gulaliiiii!
hello, what's up baby?
it is good for your body


gulali gulali gulalii!
jangan tipu hati
jangan khianati


gulali gulali gulaliiiii!
sayangi ibu pertiwi
juga rakyat negri ini


susuri empang
licin berlumpur
susuri pinggiran kali
airnya berkilaukilau


berhenti di depan sekolah
dengan tembok retak disana sini
anak anak berhamburan sambut pak ali
' lima ngatus, pak...sewu, pak...pak ali '


lalu dibuatlah gulali berbagai bentuk
burung, kuda, macan, kapal, pesawat
begitu ceria wajah wajah tunas bangsa ini
lugu, jujur dan tak ada yang perlu ditakuti


gulali gulali gulaliiii!
doa restu bagimu
wahai anak anakku


gulali gulai gulaliiii!
comment allez-vous?
merci merci beaucoup


gulali gulali gulaliii!
semoga tetap manis
jiwa raga anak negri


gulali gulali gulali gulaliii!
berkibarlah bendera kami
gemah ripah loh jinawi

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
