Babu Sassi, a fearless young man from southern India is the cult hero of Dubai 's army of construction workers.

Known as the "Indian on the top of the world", Babu is the crane operator at the world's tallest building , the 819-meter Burj Dubai. His office, the cramped crane cab perched on top of the Burj, is also his home. Apparently it takes too long to come down to the ground each day to make it worthwhile. When the building is completed, its elevators will be the world's fastest.

Stories about his daily dalliance with death are discussed in revered terms by Dubai 's workers. Some say he has been up there for more than a year, others whisper that he's paid 30,000 dirhams ($8,168) a month compared with the average wage of 800 dirhams a month. All agree he's worth it.

Perhimpunan Derhaka

Perhimpunan dari kandang lembu

Sedawa dan kentut bercampur-baur

Bau tahi korupsi memenuhi ruang

Perut-perut besar buncit kekenyangan

Mulut-mulut buaya Pemuda meleleh

Para nenek dan puteri berdangdut

Bersatu menyanyikan lagu buffalo soldier

Woy yoy yoy, woy yoy-yoy yoy,
Woy yoy yoy yoy, yoy yoy-yoy yoy!

Perhimpunan angguk-angguk

Datang mendengar dan tersengguk

Wakil-wakil terhibur mengisi poket

Ketawa, mengemis, melolong-lolong

Menjaja dan melelong ketuanan bangsa

50 tahun menjadi tuan dan hamba

Berkhidmat sebagai buffalo soldier

Woy yoy yoy, woy yoy-yoy yoy,
Woy yoy yoy yoy, yoy yoy-yoy yoy!

Perhimpunan derhaka sekadar pesta

Berganti kepimpinan suaka puaka

Gamat semangat mengangkat keris

Bersama tradisi tikam-menikam

Semeriah demokrasi politik wang

Berubah slogan pun tetap rebah

Dulu, kini dan selamanya

Bersetia meneruskan buffalo soldier

Woy yoy yoy, woy yoy-yoy yoy,
Woy yoy yoy yoy, yoy yoy-yoy yoy!
