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
