This song sets a pantun: a traditional Malay poetic form that has a rich and complex evolution and has long been a part of everyday life.  Pantuns are typically not narratives or in a lyrical style.  Instead, they express a riddle with hidden meaning.  Sik Sik Si Batu Manikkam is among the most popular pantun songs.  Most of the lines of the text have no meaning.  They are only funny lines which rhyme, and lead to the rest of the text.

A full recording of this pieces can be found on CD-07: One World, Many Voices - Volume 5.
