Bunga Anggerik

July 24, 2008

I am listening to some oldies. Songs from 50's and 60's movies. Our local movies. Kind of floating in the air when hearing those lovely and romantic lyrics. Thats the real Malay song I guess. Its a poet which needs you to think to understand the meanings. Its made from pantun, sentences that rhyme.

Salute to the lyricist. Wonder if this kind of lyric still exist in nowadays songs.

Below is one of the songs that I listen too.


Bunga Anggerik

apa dipandang kepada anggerik
tumbuhnya liar di dalam hutan
mekar sehari esok binasa
sebelum layu sudah pun mati

bukan memandang kepada cantik
pokok pangkalnya hati berkenan
kalau sesuai budi bahasa
sampai ke kubur bersatu hati

bunga anggerik nan permai
memang molek dipakai

banyaklah bunga di dalam taman
apalah guna anggerik di desa
molek pun tidak, wangi pun bukan
tidak sesuai untuk disunting

sungguhlah puan bunga idaman
indah kerana budi bahasa
bukan lah cantik di tengah pekan
cantik berbuai di hujung ranting

bunga angerik yang rendang
memang cantik di pandang

bunga berseri disinar malam
kumbang menari dengan cahaya
alam kekasih bunga dikarang
anggerik tak mungkin menukar ganti

sudah menjadi aturan alam
bunga menyeri taman bahagia
kumbang memilih bukan sebarang
anggerik didesa pujaan hati

bunga angerik didesa
indah budi bahasa


Its a song from "Bawang Putih Bawang Merah". Nice movie. I have been watching it for few times. Ehehehe!
