Sample text

Moi laagaa darling
Moi laagaa darling bishi sunder,
Tai laagaa bosti moi najaane,
Beraai beraai kenaa thing bekhaaise
Biyanpabi salam di aase
Ek din noholie, dui din noholie
Love kuribo etu time te koi dibo de,
Eki logote rastaa rastaa beraabo,
Itu din rukhi aase darling. 
A love song by Kevilinuo Vizo
