Some do Do,
some sing Sa;
some say So;
Others play Pa.

Somewhere cuckoo sings;
somewhere koyal kooks;
kukushka bliss brings;
elsewhere carol kakukks.

Some love in vermelho,
in some red flows,
some bleed rosso,
in others rouge grows.

Love tones enthralled
are everywhere the same;
they are just called
by many a different name.

Har Allah God Raam
Sung whichever way
makes soft souls calm
and hale hearts play
