Sandra Sanger

May 14, 2012

Sandra Sanger hailed from Sulawesi (Celebes), Indonesia. Her original “Ayo Mama” was another very successful cross-cultural hit song. She is not to be confused with her sister, Norma, who was also a very successful recording artist. Together with Marini, Sandra toured with The Steps throughout the Far East including Tokyo and Hong Kong in the late 60’s thru 70s. Sandra passed away in 1989 at only 43 years old.

AYO, MAMA
Jalan-jalan kota Semarang
Teruslah naik kota Ungaran
Sungguh pintar laki sekarang
Ngaku sekolah tapi pacaran

(Chorus)
Ayo, mama jangan mama marah beta
Dia cuma dia cuma cium beta
Ayo, mama jangan mama marah beta
‘Lah orang muda punya biasa

Ambil jala, tongkat pendiri
Oh ular naga mencari makan
Dapat cium pipi yang kiri
Oh minta tambah pipi yang kanan

Kalau ada sumur di ladang
Bolehlah kita menumpang mandi
Kalau ada umurku panjang
Bolehlah kita berjumpa lagi
