Joko Tingkir
Farel Prayoga Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Joko Tingkir ngombe dawet
Ja dipikir, marai mumet
Ngopek jamur nggone Mbah Wage
Pantang mundur, terus nyambut gawe
Pantang mundur, terus nyambut gawe

(Aneka Music)
(Safari Records)

Ning Purwokerto tuku ketan
Iki cerita anak rantauan
Lombok rawit pedes tenan
Golek duwit kanggo masa depan
Golek duwit kanggo masa depan (hey-hek!)

Rokok klobot ning ngisor wit mlinja
Paling abot ninggal anak-bojo
Tuku donat ning Kalimantan
Tetep semangat kanggo masa depan
Tetep semangat kanggo masa depan

Godhong kenikir, godhong koro
Ja dipikir aku arep ngliya
Mangan jamur, mangan koro
Aku jujur, kowe ra percaya
Aku jujur, kowe ra percaya

Joko Tingkir ngombe dawet
Ja dipikir, marai mumet
Ngopek jamur nggone Mbah Wage
Pantang mundur, terus nyambut gawe
Pantang mundur, terus nyambut gawe

(Aneka Music, Safari Records)

Ning Banyuwangi tuku ketan
Iki cerita anak rantauan
Lombok rawit pedes tenan
Golek duwit kanggo masa depan
Golek duwit kanggo masa depan

Rokok klobot ning ngisor wit mlinja
Paling abot ninggal anak-bojo
Tuku donat ning Kalimantan
Tetep semangat kanggo masa depan
Tetep semangat kanggo masa depan (hey, yo, hek-ey!)

Joko Tingkir ngombe dawet
Ja dipikir, marai mumet
Ngopek jamur nggone Mbah Wage
Pantang mundur, terus nyambut gawe
Pantang mundur, terus nyambut gawe

Joko Tingkir ngombe dawet
Ja dipikir, marai mumet
Ngopek jamur nggone Mbah Wage
Pantang mundur, terus nyambut gawe
Pantang mundur, terus nyambut gawe

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Farel Prayoga's song "Joko Tingkir" describe the struggles and determination of a young man trying to make a living away from home. The first verse talks about how Joko Tingkir drinks dawet (a traditional Indonesian drink made with coconut milk and sugar) and thinks about his situation - perhaps feeling overwhelmed by the challenges he faces. However, he refuses to give up and instead goes mushroom hunting with Mbah Wage (an elderly person) and never stops pursuing work opportunities. The repetition of "pantang mundur, terus nyambut gawe" emphasizes Joko Tingkir's persistence and willingness to persevere through difficult times to achieve his goals.


The second verse talks about Joko Tingkir's life as an outsider, buying ketan (sticky rice) in Purwokerto and telling a story of his life as an immigrant. He experiences the heat of spicy lombok/rawit chili (perhaps indicating the difficulties he faces while away from home) and is always looking for ways to make money for his future. Again, the repetition of "golek duwit kanggo masa depan" emphasizes his motivation to secure his future through hard work.
