Bombay Meri Hai
A reader inspired by the song 'Ae Mumbai Tere Bande Hum' penned one of his own version.

(To be sung to the tune of Bombay Meri Hai)

Come to Bandra, come to Khar, come to Kalina
Come to Mahim, come to Sion, come to Kurla
If youre looking for a good place to swim,
Come to Mumbai, Aamchi Mumbai, just jump in !

Chorus: Mum, Mum, Mumbai, dooba paani mein (2)

You just need a boat, or at least a float,
Come to Mumbai, Aamchi Mumbai, Mumbai baarish mein.

Wear a mini or bikini, to move around
There is more water than real solid ground
If you like to swim with dead cattle and fish,
Come to Mumbai, Aamchi Mumbai, fulfil your wish!

Lepto, gastro, malaria, you can get as well,
The epidemic bubble is about to swell,
When it will burst is anyones guess,
Come to Mumbai, Aamchi Mumbai, alls in a mess!

Aeroplanes and local trains come to a halt
All this is not the common mans fault.
Once you come and stay, you just cant go away.
Come to Mumbai, Aamchi Mumbai, Mumbai baarish mein.
