It was 1965 in Singapore. The Rythmn Boys emerged as the winner in the battle of the bands in the “Dave Clark Five” competition. They were amongst the early leaders of the kugirans pop yeh-yeh, the new genre of Malay popular music. The Rythmn Boys became a household name by first backing singer A. Ramlie. They were eagerly sought and also recorded with singers like S. Mariam, Ramlah Aziz, Novel (from Indonesia), M. Amin, Adnan Othman, S. Ahmad and Shari Omar.

(OH FATIMAH)
Oh Mas Ayu Fatimah nan ayu
Parasnya indah suara merdu
Senyum membawa hati rindu
Buat jiwa bimbang ragu
Oh Fatimah gadis Palembang
Pinggangnya ramping leher jinjang
Pakainya cantik istimewa
Budi bahasa sungguh indah
Oh Fatimah gadis ayu
Indah sungguh parasmu Mas Ayu
Kasih mesramu menawanku
Membelai harapanku
Oh Fatimah gadis manja
Membawa hatiku yang mesra
Bilakah masa kan bersua
Rasa cinta hidup ria
