"Anak Sekolah" ("Schoolgirl") is a song originally performed by Indonesian pop star Chrisye on his 1986 album Nona Lisa. Rivers Cuomo covered the song in November 2022, ahead of Weezer's concerts in Jakarta and Bali.

Overview

On October 18, 2022, Rivers Cuomo asked users of his Discord server if there were any Indonesian songs he could cover during Weezer's forthcoming Indonesian concerts that would elicit a positive reaction from the audience.[1][2] Among the suggestions, Cuomo liked "Anak Sekolah."[3] The single's cover art was generated by Discord user Minority103 using AI software.

Cuomo performed the song with musician Scott Murphy during a concert in Kumamoto, Japan on November 20, 2022. A few days later, on November 26, Weezer debuted the song as a full-band at Soundrenaline 2022 in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Lyrics

Bukan aku tak tertarik
Dengan kata rayuanmu
Saat matamu melirik
Aku jadi suka padamu
Tiap kali kau bermanja
Gemetar rasa di dada
Ingin kubisikkan cinta
Tapi hati ini malu jadinya

Engkau masih anak sekolah satu SMA
Belum tepat waktu 'tuk begitu begini
Anak sekolah datang kembali
Dua atau tiga tahun lagi

Bukan aku tak tertarik
Dengan kata rayuanmu
Saat matamu melirik
Aku jadi suka padamu
Tiap kali kau bermanja
Gemetar rasa di dada
Ingin kubisikkan cinta
Tapi hati ini malu jadinya

Engkau masih anak sekolah satu SMA
Belum tepat waktu 'tuk begitu begini
Anak sekolah datang kembali
Dua atau tiga tahun lagi
