                             Lokki Manisé       


  Lokki manisé... itu negri kecil, kecil sekali dekat tanjungé
   Sweet Lokki, that is a very little village near the cape

  duduk di bawah kaki gunung, di atas tanah rata-rataé,
  that rests on level ground at the foot of the mountain,

  tengada pulau kasaé.
  and facing the island Pulau Kassa

Burung Talang terbang melayang,
orang yang di laut banyak mencari ikan,
The Talang bird flies swiftly and the fishermen catch many fish

Meskipun jauh begini..... tidak ku lupa negri Lokki manisé !!
Even though I am very far away….. I will never forget my village Lokki !!

Lokki Manisé !!

              That is what the children sang until their village was destroyed and burned to the ground in august 1999.
In refuge from the violence in the village Piru
40 km away, we hope with them that the village
can be rebuilt again
because we too will never forget Lokki
