If you are interested in the lyrics, here it is:

Bengawan Solo
Riwayatmu ini
Sedari dulu jadi...
Perhatian insani

Musim kemarau
Tak seberapa airmu
Dimusim hujan air..
Meluap sampai jauh

Mata airmu dari Solo
Terkurung gunung seribu
Air meluap sampai jauh
Dan akhirnya ke laut

Itu perahu
Riwayatnya dulu
Kaum pedagang selalu...
Naik itu perahu
