Sokhalim hanv uttam mathear pantli dhortam, Mhapxeam vetam bazarant,

I wake up in the morning, carry the basket on my head to Mapusa market

Vepar rokdoch vinktam, char poixe hanv zoddtam, ghara etaim motoran.

I sell the goods quickly, and make some money, and return home in car


Ete Mhapxemche motorkar

the Cabbie drivers in Mapusa are very smart

mottech uxear,

are very smart

maka mhunntat gagreachem manam

they call me gaghra lady


Maka apoitat ansoitat bulonk sodtat,dolleank bandunk sodtat te panam,

they call me, tease me, make me laugh, tie a kerchief around my eyes

Tankham konna kuch hanv patienam, sogleank ek-ekleak vollkon zanah,

I don't trust anyone of them, I know them one by one

Antamchea temparui hanv gagro-polk nestam mhunnon kortai mojhim fokannam

In this modern times , I am still wearing ghagro, and they make fun of me


Chorus

Gagreachem Manam, Gagreachem Manam

Gagreachem Manam, Gagreachem Manam.


Xetan hanv vetanam, bazarant ietana, gagro ani polk nestam,

when i go in the fields, or shopping , I wear the ghagra polk

Passoik vetanam, soireamgher astanam, modiche vistid galtam.

when i go for walks, visit my neighbors, i dress the modern style

Anv tem tight dress nestoch ani rostean choltoch,

when i wear the tight clinging dress and walk on the street

chedde fiunim ghalta, fiu fiu fiu

the boys whistle at me phew phew phew

Teo fiuneom aikotoch odik jetan choltam sanvrona voir sokol zata jiv,

When they whistle at me, I walk even more in style, and life seems high and low

Thodde mhunntat darling I love you, chol iea bonvonk Damao ani Diu,

some say Darling I love you, Lets go roaming to Daman and Diu

Punn te lagim eunk bietat Police officer assa dekun mozo titiu.

they fear coming close because my uncle is a Police officer


Mottorkar posorkar gaddekar voddekar zanvoim zaunk soddtat amgher,

the cabbie drivers, the shopkeepers, the boatmen's they want to our son in law

Dis rath kortat bejar, hanv zaun zalear kazar zatelim xetkaragher.

day and night they worry me, but i will only marry a farmer

Anv tem gagreachem mana voi sogle zanam, amche gharant poi kitlem sizta,

I am that ghagra lady everyone knows that , in our home see what sizzles

Thoddeamger duddu assat punn jevon khaunk nam, duddu asson kiteak upkarta,

some have money but nothing to eat, what is the use of having money.

Maka duddvamkar saiba naka, tanger fokot te dudduch assta,

I don't wan the moneyed man, they only have money

Dekun xettkareagher anv kazar zatelim, tanchea gharanu soglem dista.

that's the reason, i will only marry a farmer, you can see everything

Gagreachem Manam, Gagreachem Manam

Gagreachem Manam, Gagreachem Manam.
