Children's Song
(English)

Satu, satu, aku sayang Ibu
Dua, Dua, juga sayang ayah*
Tiga, Tiga, sayang adik-kakak
Satu, Dua, Tiga, sayang semuanya.

One and one, I love my mummy,
And then two, I love my daddy,
And then three, I love my sister and brother**,
One, two, three, I love them all.

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

Notes

*You can use either "ayah" or "bapak" here for "Dad".
**Literally "younger and older siblings"

*****

This song is sung in the mp3 as the lyrics are written above. The song goes:

Satu, satu, aku sayang Ibu (Ibu is from Malay = Mom)
Dua, Dua, juga sayang ayah (Ayah is from Javanese = Dad)

The normal way should have been either using both Malay (bahasa melayu) words:

Satu, satu, aku sayang bunda (Mom)
Dua, Dua, juga sayang ayah (Dad)

Or this using both Javanese (basa jawa) words:

Satu, satu, aku sayang Ibu (Mom)
Dua, Dua, juga sayang Bapak (Dad)

*****
