Children's Song

Pelangi, pelangi
Alangkah indahmu
Merah, kuning, hijau
Di langit yang biru
Pelukismu agung
Siapa gerangan
Pelangi, pelangi
Ciptaan Tuhan.

Rainbow, rainbow,
How beautiful you are.
Red, yellow, green,
On the blue sky.
Your painter is great,
Who is...
Rainbow, rainbow,
Creation of God.

Many thanks to Innosanto Nagara for videotaping this song for us!


Here's a more literal translation:

Rainbow, rainbow
How beautiful you are!
Red, yellow, green
On the blue sky.
Who is
Your great painter,
Rainbow, rainbow?
I'm a Creation of God the Great.


Here's Pelangi, Pelangi sung by a Mom and her son who don't speak Indonesian. But that's the spirit of learning kids songs from around the world - to share in each other's cultures and languages!
