Pe kourtize lor enn brans filao.

Pe zwe-zwe lor lerb ver dan bor dilo.
O dek! Kat tipti pousen blan, nwar, zonn, maron
Ansam pe fouy later pou rod lever.

Tap to ravann ravannye!
Les lapo kabri gazouye!

O dek! Enn bengali pe sante lor enn fler,
Ki leze kouma enn papyon dore.
O dek! Fler kann velour pe danse dan lezer,
Li pe valse ar lamizik lesiel.

Pe patine lor ledo larkansiel.

So lonbraz pe rafresi tou bann fler.

So kouler pe pentir nou liniver.

Ar bann zetwal diaman lao-lao.

Bat to tanbour tanbourye!
Tap to ravann ravannye!
Les lapo kabri gazouye!

LO AND BEHOLD
Lo behold!
Yellow bird and cardinal
Wooing on casuarina tree;
Three red-eyed white rabbits
Gamboling on green grass by a pond;
Four chicks – black, white, yellow and brown –
Teaming to dig out worms.

Play your drum, drummer!
Rap the ravanne, ravanner!
Let the goat skin flutter!

Lo and behold!
A bengali bird chirping on a bud
As light as a golden butterfly!
Sugarcane flowers swing in the air,
Waltzing to heavenly music!
Warbling colourful birds
Are skating on rainbow’s back!

Play your drum, drummer!
Rap the ravanne, ravanner!
Let the goat skin flutter!

Lo and behold!
Clouds wrap up mountain tops
And spray freshness on all blooms!
A golden ball of fire dips into the sea
Splashing our world with bright colours!
The silvery moon yoyos
Diamond studs on the darkening sky!

Play your drum, drummer!
Rap the ravanne, ravanner!
Let the goat skin flutter!
