Here I sit within the macet.
Pelan-pelan no use to fret.
Cannot read, sakit perut,
Cannot watch, pusing kepala.
Kanan, kiri, terus, putar,
I steal a peek, haven't gone far.
Bajaj, sepeda, kaki, mobil,
Beam me up Scotty, this can't be real.
I try to relax and close my eyes,
I dream of places far and away,
And remember faces that brightened my way.
I think, life is good, yes very good.
Honk! Honk! Beep! Beep!
The moment rusak
Lest I forget to curse this macet.
