Strangers in the Night

Played and sung by Zane Commissariat.

Dhansak in the Night . . . . .

[Sing to the tune of – ‘Strangers in the Night’]

Dhansak in the night . . .
Sali boti ‘nay Daru pi ne tight

Curry-ma kolmi . . . mothi-mothi

Then everything is all right . . . .

When there’s dhansak in the night.

Doobie-doobie-doooo

Kanda Papeta per eedu *

Nashta per dahi sev ‘nay elchi keru

But everything will be all right . . . .

When there’s dhansak in the ni-i-i-i-i-ght

A Parsi peg or two

With chicken farcha will do

Papata ma gosh, ‘nay some Irani oosh

But everything will be all right . . . .

When there’s dhansak in the ni-i-i-i-i-ght

Masoor pau is nice

With doodhi-gosht ‘nay rice

Charvelu eedu, Maiji-e maakhan ma kidhu

Pun, daru pi ne tight – bawaji feels all right

When there’s dhansak in the ni-i-i-i-i-i-i-ght!
