When war began I said Howja-Dhu and Chorus
What though I be attired in warlike raiment Howja-Dhu and Myhnt-Jhuleep
Love is pain or love is pleasure Pooteh-Wehl
I love! At last I've met my fate Aminah and Pooteh-Wehl
Amid the moss the cobra lies Aminah
'Tis the old, old story Aminah
In the carnage of a scrimmage Jhust-Naut and Asch-Khart
We think, and minds salubrious Damayanti, Naomouna, Myhnt-Jhuleep and Howja-Dhu
Hear ye the birds
Do you remember?
