lyrics

I came from Jakarta long time ago
To find good living, to earn some bread you know
I like my country but there's no employment
I couldn't stay, so I went

To New York city where I found a job
To New York city where I met my friend Bob
He asked me one day, "you like it here?"
So I said, "No, let's make it clear"

I don't like this life at all
Just like walking on the ball
I don't like this life at all
One day I wanna go back to my Jakarta

I came from Jakarta, I work at a restaurant
Saw John Travolta at the same restaurant
I like this country, don't get me wrong
I shouldn't have stayed this long

It's New York city, what can you say?
It's New York city, what more can you say?
And all my friends' gone back to their lands
Now living life as it's planned

I don't like this life at all
Just like walking on the ball
I don't like this life at all
One day I wanna go back to my Jakarta

La la la ...

It's New York city, what can you say?
It's New York city, what more can you say?
So should I stay just five more years?
That's what I said five years ago!

I don't like this life at all
Just like walking on the ball
I don't like this life at all
One day I wanna go back to my Jakarta
Back to my Jakarta

La la la ...
