Kulihat awan seputih kapas
arak-berarak di langit luas
andai kudapat ke sana terbang
akan kuraih kubawa pulang.
I see the clouds, as white as cotton
Floating in the big wide sky
If I can reach up and grab them
I'll take them home with me.

Many thanks to Yosita Kumalasanty (Yosi) for contributing this rhyme. She's a mother of two from Indonesia. Yosi says, "The translation may not be too rhyming, but in our language, the rhyme is loud and clear."
Harri Saptadi wrote, "The rhyme is : 1st & 2nd '... kapas -> ... luas' then 3rd & 4th '... terbang -> ... pulang'."
Thanks to Harri Saptadi from Central Java Province in Indonesia for the sheet music and for help with the song, and also to Monique Palomares for the midi music.
