Stay and settle O people!

You are acting like a stranger

We know each other for long O people!

Birds started flying

They have flyed and gone afar

Their flight is beautiful

This is popularly sung in marriages. It urges guests to stay and not to leave. They are compared to birds.


Raaso baaso be loko

Te pardesi ho chaale

Duraa duraa di pachaanaa be loko

Kunjaan udne ho laggiyaan

Te udkar dur ho peya

Enna kunja di challa sohni be loko
