Indonesian
A A

Permata Bunda

Sungguh indah cincin permata ini
Yang ku pakai di jari manisku
Oh sayang
Cendera mata dari bundaku sayang
Di saat pergi ke alam baka
 
Bila ku ingat bundaku sayang
Cincin permata ku cium mesra
Air mata jatuh titik berlinang
Ratap tangisku menusuk hati
Oh sayang
Namun apa daya ku tak kuasa
Cincin permata ku cium mesra
 
Bila ku ingat bundaku sayang
Cincin permata ku cium mesra
Air mata jatuh titik berlinang
Ratap tangisku menusuk hati
Oh sayang
Namun apa daya ku tak kuasa
Cincin permata teman berduka

Mother's Jewel

Very beautiful, this jeweled ring
That I use in my ring finger
Oh darling
A souvenir from my dearest mother
When going to the afterlife
 
When I remember, my dearest mother
This jeweled ring, I kiss it passionately
Tears falling down
Lamentation of my tears pierced my heart
Oh darling
But what can I do, I'm helpless
This jeweled ring, I kiss it passionately
 
When I remember, my dearest mother
This jeweled ring, I kiss it passionately
Tears falling down
Lamentation of my tears pierced my heart
Oh darling
But what can I do, I'm helpless
This jeweled ring, a friend in grief
 
Thanks!

This song is a story about a jeweled ring, a gift from a deceased mother to her daughter. Now the ring serves as a reminder.

Bunda means mother in Indonesia, but in the most noble form, like Bunda Maria means Mother Mary.
But yea, imagine hearing a song called Jewel's Ass HAHAHAHA
