Before going any further, please #GOODpeople sing the song “Rayuan Pulau Kelapa” (Coconut Island Seduction). It’s been a long time since you sang this compulsory song by Ismail Marzuki, right? The lyrics are below.

Tanah airku Indonesia / My homeland is Indonesia
Negeri elok amat kucinta / I love a beautiful country
Tanah tumpah darahku yang mulia / The land of my glorious blood
Yang kupuja sepanjang masa / I love all the time
Tanah airku aman dan makmur / My homeland is safe and prosperous
Pulau kelapa yang amat subur / A very fertile coconut island
Pulau melati pujaan bangsa / The nation’s idol island of jasmine
Sejak dulu kala / Since a long time ago

Melambai lambai / Waving waving
Nyiur di pantai / Nyiur on the beach
Berbisik bisik / Whisper whispers
Raja Kelana / King of the Wanders
Memuja pulau / Adore the island
Nan indah permai / Beautiful and beautiful
Tanah Airku / My homeland
Indonesia / Indonesia
