From the album: 'Jalan Kopo'
a dual praise song for the funny little Englishman with the glasses and a sainted Cuban grandmother.


Artur Asaki was a very funny man
All the people in England and what was Great Britain too
They knew his song about the bumble-bee
Hello Playmates was his catch-phrase
Everytime he was on the BBC
Artur Asaki was a very funny man
La Milagrosso was a very good woman
They say that she could heal the sick
Help you put your horse before your cart
She could help you find your true love
Chase away dark shadows from your heart
La Milagrosso was a very good woman


from The Best of the Indonesian Sessions, released December 23, 2015
