Lyrics of All Around This World version:
Ut re moora, ut re moora beemban karav
beemban sandonomor keh loh karav
I wake up in the morning and look for the hens,
The peacock at home says Ill find them again.
The original lyrics (a rough translation):
Wake up the peacock and watch the chickens.
The hens are lost. The peacock returned home.
Where did you go last night?
