My alarms ring in the morning I'm still sleepy, gotta close my eyes for a blink I recall that I must be fast Go to lurah nearby to renew my ID card
Right from the bed I jump immediately Getting ready A-S-A-P
Falling astonished in the minute I find out Hundreds of people taking on the jammed road Cars, motorbikes, wagon, all fight for their path out
In what way Ay.. Ay.. can I go across the way?
How come it's always this trafficky? It's been so long, can't the solvers be in hurry? They said they were going to build an MRT ** If I knew this I is I would have moved to Bali ih ih Instead I'm stuck in Semanggi (notorious for its traffic jam)
Three, THREE hours! Trip of ours Arrives in lurah's office, after getting lost Sweating like horse Tired, oh gosh Hugely surprised when I see how darn long the queue was My Jakarta, how come you are like this? Lining up without sign to cease
I sit in waiting line with thirty applicants Fanning ourselves, we all were hot and unpleasant Sweat starts trickling all over from our sweat gland At what place Ah ah are lurah* officers here?
At last come out one man shows his face Ferocious grimace with long, space-wasting mustache He tells it will need three months to finish the process Unless ya... Ah ah hand a sum to grease my palms." Ah ah I got insufficient fund ._.
Where Where Where will I get cash from? It's left behind in my room." He tells me to try come back tomorrow He gets my mouth wide open
My Jakarta, how come you are so cruel like this? Street jammed, soiled, disordered, going day by day In every place, payoff does not seem to cease I do need eh ed I do need Mas*** Jokowi
I do want Jakarta's street jams to be solved I do want Jakarta's slum places to be handled No longer bribery taking place here and there I do want ah ant Jokowi and Basuki
I do want flooding to be handled Development fund is not going to be slipped Impoverished townsmen also to be assisted I do want Ah ant I do want mas Jokowi Ih ih Also mas Basuki Ih ih Jokowi and Basuki
* "Lurah" is a district headman ** MRT refers to Jakarta's monorail train; an unfinished project—suspected due to great corruption in its development fund—for Jakarta's mass transportation. Its pylons now litter the streets of Jakarta. Semanggi is one of the most crowded points in Jakarta, known for its shopping centres. They imply that they are caught on Semanggi's traffic jam. *** Mas is the Javanese word for big bro. Instead of 'Mister', Jokowi uses a more friendly term to address himself in campaign.
