A song by Marsada an internationally-known (and deservedly so!) Toba-Barak vocal group based in Sumatra. (“Marsada” means “together” in Batak.)
All Around This World is trying hard to find the publisher that manages the rights to “Sada Do.” If you can help in that quest, be in touch.

[wpspoiler name=”Lyrics of All Around This World version” style=”aatw-other” open=”true”]Sada do, matani ari bissar
Boi do i manondangi sasude
There’s only one sun in the sky
That shines down upon us
You are the sunshine
Sada do, matani ari bissar
Boi do i manondangi sasude
There’s only one moon in the night
The world is dark without it
You are the moonlight
There are a billion stars and then some, I know that,
But of the stars I see above
There are a billion stars and then some, in the sky dear
Yours is the only one I love.
With hearts we’ll love each other, forever, every day
Holong ni roha salelengna
With hearts we’ll love each other, forever, every day
Holong ni roha salelengna[/wpspoiler]

Sada do mataniari binsar (One is the sun that rise)
Boi do i manondangi sasude (able it is to shine upon all)
Ai bulan i pe ro ito (So does the moon come,dear)
Naboi do manorangi sasada ho ( can lit upon you alone)
Holan ho ai holan ho do hasian (only you, it is only you dear)
Sai tu ho sai tu ho do rahaki (my heart is always goes to you)
Sasado ho do hasian na boi pasonang roha salelengna (it is only you dear who can please me eternally)

Torop pe bintang na di langit hasian (many as there are stars above)
Sigarani api sada do (only one shines the brightest)
Torop si boru nauli hasian (many girls are pretty,dear)
Tinodo ni roha sai tu ho (my hearts only goes to you)
Anggiat ma nian holong ni rohami (may the love in your heart)
Holong ni roha salelengna (is the love last forever)
