English Lyrics[edit]

My heart is fluttering like silk in the wind
I cannot decide whether to fly or sit on the hilltop
To the dog-it’s puppy, puppy, to the cat-it’s meow meow
Our love is-waiting at the crossroads.
One-barrelled gun, two-barrelled gun, targeted at a deer.
It’s not the deer that I am aiming at, but at my beloved.
Aeroplane in the sky, motor on the roads, If not then bullock cart.
If your heart feels the same as mine then come..
The tiny baby calf is in danger at the precipice.
I couldn`t leave, let`s go together, my love.
