Salapan bulan ngakandung
Moal aya hiji jalma
Leuwih ti indung

I left my home to see the land
Every river, every plain
The wet forest and the dry sand
A wanderer on an island
My mother had showed the way
From the moment I had left her
I would come back to her some day
And be a prince ever after

Salapan bulan ngakandung
Pinuh rasa jeung rumasa
Salapan bulan dikandung
Pinuh dosa jeung rumasa

I crossed all the rivers
And sailed all the ships
Always thinking of her
Through every step, in every district
Everywhere I went I never stayed long
The noise of the canons, the ringing of the gong
The banging of drums, the loud cymbal sound
Always told me I didn’t belong

Diniatan susuganan
Ngalalana di dayeuh ka pasisian

I know you can
ride the waves of rivers
make your way up mountains
sail each and every sea
yes, I know that you can
but you know you… can
hold on to me, you can hold on to me
You can
wander through the woods
drift across the deserts
get around the globe
you know that you can
as you know where I'll be
when you hold on to me, hold on to me
And when you cross the doorway
your shoes next to mine
to rest by my side
then I hope you will see
how I hold on to you
so hold on to me, hold on to me
