Zainal Abidin - Hijau

Got this song playing in my head after listening it at my company's annual dinner :




Lyrics:

Bumi yang tiada rimba
Seumpama hamba
Dia dicemar manusia
Yang jahil ketawa

Bumi yang tiada udara
Bagai tiada nyawa
Pasti hilang suatu hari
Tanpa disedari

Bumi tanpa lautan
Akan kehausan
Pasti lambat laun hilang
Duniaku yang malang

Dewasa ini kita saling merayakan
Kejayaan yang akhirnya membinasakan
Apalah gunanya kematangan fikiran
Bila di jiwa kita masih lagi muda
Dan mentah
Ku lihat hijau

Bumiku yang kian pudar
Siapa yang melihat
Di kala kita tersedar
Mungkinkah terlewat

Korupsi,opresi,obsesi diri
Polusi,depressi,di bumi,kini

Oh..anok-anok (Oh..anak-anak)
tokleh meghaso mandi laok (tak leh merasa mandi lauk)
Besaing,maing ghama-ghama (bersaing, main ramai-ramai)
Ale lo ni tuo umurnyo bejuto (alah, kamu ni umurnya berjuta)
Kito usoho (kita usaha)
Jauhke dari malapetako (jauh daripada malapetaka)
Ozon lo ni koho nipih nak nak aghi (ozon ni nak nipis hampir nah habis)
Keno make asak (kena makan asap)
Hok biso wei,pasa maknusio (ia berbisa, pasal manusia)
Seghemo bendo-bendo di dunio (semua benda-benda di dunia)
Tokleh tehe (tak boleh tahan)
Sapa bilo-bilo (sampai bila-bila)

-----------------------------------

couldn't find a translation of the above, so here it goes:

the earth which is without forest,
is like a slave,
being trampled by humans,
who glee with evil laughter...

the earth which is without air,
is like without life,
will be gone one day,
without being realized at...

the earth without the sea,
will thirst,
will surely but slowly,
dissapear...
My pitiful planet Earth...

As adults we celebrate together,
our success which will later destroy,
what's the use of maturity of thought?
when in ourselves is still a young man,
and immature,
i saw the green in him...

My earth which is slowly fading,
who actually realizes it?
When we actually wake up,
will it be too late?

Pollution, Corruption, and Obsession,

**in olden slang, Negeri Sembilan dialect:**

Oh, my children,
let's play and work together,
your age is a million (referring to earth i suppose),
We work together,
avoid causing the disasters..
The Ozon layer is not thin yet it's gonna finish,
Soon we'll have to eat smoke...
It is poisonous, because man is poisonous,
everything in this world,
cannot last forever,
till eternity...

Nice song! Thanks for sharing...and for the translation! (to BM I mean...lol) I was just wondering what dialect it was.

By the way, can't we turn off the song on your page? I like this song, but it's awful when I'm doing something else...
