Kusangkakan panas berpanjangan
Rupanya gerimis rupanya gerimis
Mengundang ah ha ha ha
Dalam tak sedar ku kebasahan

Pergi-lah semua sial jambalang daripada badan aku dan dari tubuh negara, pergilah ke Pusat Pasek Pauh Janggi
Gerimis Mengundang is a Malaysian chart topping single from the band Slam. It was released in 1996 and it permeated the airways and the hearts of the nation. I had just returned to Malaysia to take up a position at the Universiti Malaysia Sarawak and this song resonates within me still, just as it does, I suggest, with the saga that underpins the present state of our national polity!
