Pandu Lampiaum - H. Britton - lyrics

H. Britton sings about the now-defunct Goan tradition of itinerant glass bangle salesmen known as "vallar".



Pandu Lampiaum
H. Britton
Music: Chris Perry

Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Ganv mhozo Mhapxecho, biradd mhojem Maddganv
Vallaracho dhondo mhagelo kanknnam viktam hanv

Vallaracho dhondo ho Goeam boro cholta

Mov-mov hatancher kanknnam borim choddta

Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Thoddech dis zale mhaka Mumboi xarant pavlear
Kalliz mhagelem dukhovta cheddvam-bailank poilear
Kanknnam konnuch ghalinant, kiteak sall haddlea dollear?
Funkott pasun ghaltom hanv Goeam tumi ailear

Mumboichim cheddvam-bailo kanknnam ghalinam
Kanknnam naslele hat pollounk mhojean zainam

Tor sang bailani to kiteak kelo poro?
Ghov mortoch kaxir tangele narl foddlear puro
