Lyrics

Bengali, Bengali

Bengali, Bengali

No, no, no He does not want to depress you Oh, no, no, no, no, no He only wants to impress you

Bengali in platforms He only wants to embrace your culture And to be your friend forever Forever...

Bengali, Bengali Bengali, Bengali

Oh, shelve your Western plans and understand That life is hard enough when you belong here

A silver-studded rim that glistens And an ankle-star that blinds me A lemon sole so very high Which only reminds me, to tell you

Break the news gently Break the news to him gently "Shelve your plans" "Shelve your plans, shelve them"

Bengali, Bengali It's the touchy march of time that binds you Don't blame me, don't hate me Just because I'm the one to tell you

That life is hard enough when you belong here That life is hard enough when you belong here

Shelve your Western plans Shelve your Western plans Cause life is hard enough when you belong Life is hard enough when you belong here

Shelve your Western plans Shelve your Western plans Cause life is hard enough when you belong here Life is hard enough when you belong
