Below is the lyrics of the song : Weather news | Berita cuaca by Gombloh

 Lestari alamku, lestari desaku
Dimana Tuhanku menitipkan aku
Nyanyi bocah-bocah di kala purnama
Nyanyikan pujaan untuk nusa

Kami kan bernyanyi di purnama nanti
Nyanyikan bait pada mu negeri

Damai saudara ku suburlah bumiku
Kuingat ibuku dongengkan cerita
Kisah tentang jaya nusantara lama
Tentram kartaraharja di sana

Mengapa tanahku rawan kini
Bukit bukitpun telanjang berdiri
Pohon dan rumput enggan bersemi kembali
Burung-burung pun malu bernyanyi

Kuingin bukit ku hijau kembali
Termenung pun ku tak sabar menanti
Doa kan kuucapkan hari demi hari
Kapankah hati ini lapang diri

  2. Gombloh, mantan pengamen dari Kota Buaya, yang kemudian melejit dengan syair lagunya yang heroik : Merah darahku, putih tulangku... Sayang, dia keburu dipanggil Yang Maha Esa.

    1. Gomloh punya idealisme yg tinggi. jujur pada diri sendiri, meski sedikit urakan.

  3. Gebyar-gebyar...pelangi jingga! Almarhum Gombloh emang cakep!
