Ode to Saurav Ganguly

Nagma boli kem chhey kem chhey kem chhey
Dada bole eim chhey eim chhey eim chhey
runs nahin bante hain matches mein
arrey yeh to game chhey game
chhey game chhey game chhey
Jab ball ko maine dekha aur dekh ke maara shot
sneak liya ball ne aur ho gaya main caught
last time tha score less than 10
aur is baar bhi same chhey same chhey
same chhey same chhey
Jab fielding ki thi baari to chhode maine catch
mere kaaran hi India ne haare itne match
khelta hoon itna ghatiya par mujhko
aati nahin shame chhey shame
chhey shame chhey shame chhey
