From the album, 'Jalan Kopo'. Recorded at Jugala Studios, Jalan Kopo, Bandung in 1997.
About a boy and a girl taking the long drive to Sumbawa island. They are tired but they are young and the hotel has some good advice for them.


Sumbawa, ke Sumbawa, naik mobil ke Sumbawa
Perempuan, laki-laki, saya capé, saya mudah
Perempuan, laki-laki, lima hari tanpak tidur
Boleh boleh, bersama sampai pagi
Boleh boleh, coba coba coba sekali lagi
Sumbawa ke Sumbawa, nail mobil ke Sumbawa
