Hamdan Att - Termiskin di Dunia (The Poorest in The World)

Bismillah I listened to my neighbor's song which played this morning. Curious about the title, I searched the lyric and found that it came from Hamdan ATT (I couldn't see his profile on Wikipedia or any other pages, I think the "att" simply stands for something, but till now I don't have any idea about it) named "Termiskin di Dunia" or "The Poorest in The World". Here are the lyrics (I translated using Google Translate, forgive me and please make a correction)
Indonesian Version *) bukan ku menolak untuk mencintaimu tetapi lihat dulu siapa diriku karena engkau dan aku sungguh jauh berbeda kau orang kaya aku orang tak punya sebelum terlanjur pikir pikirlah dulu sebelum engkau menyesal kemudian intrelude jangankan gedung, gubuk pun aku tak punya jangankan permata, uang pun aku tiada aku merasa orang termiskin di dunia yang penuh derita bermandikan air mata itulah diriku kukatakan padamu agar engkau tahu siapa aku back to *) sebelum terlanjur pikir pikir lah dulu sebelum engkau menyesal kemudian
English Version It's not I reject your love But first, look me Because you and I are very much different You are rich, I'm poor Before it's too late, please think first Before you regret it later interlude I don't have a shack, let alone a building I don't have money, let alone a jewel I feel like I'm the poorest guy in the world Full of misery, bathed in tears That's me, I tell you So you know who I really am back to *) Before it's too late please think first Before you regret it later
In my opinion, Dangdut is music for "marginal groups in society". You can see it from its simple lyrics, or from the easy-listening and so "general" chord. But I think that it's the uniqueness of Dangdut, and that's why it's suitable for people like me, the poor. Lately, the religious conservative considers Dangdut as thing that identical with porn, since the singer sometimes uses a very mini skirt or dance in immoral way or...you named it. In the era of Hamdan Att, or Meggy Z, or Evie Tamala, or Rhoma Irama, they dressed politely. Dangdut's lyrics mostly describe the pain/anguish of low-paid workers. They work hard night and day, so we can hear vaguely they turn on the radio, searching for the most suitable song for them, that is, Dangdut.

UPDATE: "Att" is a short form of Hamdan's last name "Attamimi".
