Lines #3

The occasional series moseys on along...


Hey my heart tell me,
What have you come along on?
Who is it who has come,
And cast shadows on my thoughts.

Alternate for first line: "Hey my heart give me a Bata." Not quite as poetic, but definitely more intriguing.

Also see this that I wrote last January for another interesting alternate for the first line -- interesting because of how words come to mean different things.

"O heart confide in meee
Who has taken your fanceee?
Who's come n' over-powerrred
The senses to-tuh-leee".

Hi; the above comment was from me Dilip.

Not from (anony)mouse.

Pankaj, I knew it was you! You're good at this stuff -- where I find fun in the more literal translations, you're doing it poetically in the shower every morning. Once more, I can almost picture someone shimmying to your English version.
