03. Kombo-Kombiechi Amizad
Konkani folk song "KOMBO-KOMBIECHI AMIZAD" (Rooster-Hen Friendship" is a sequence of events which takes place between the owners of a rooster and a hen. The song begins with praise for the rooster, followed by allegations which result in a proposal and a demand for a dowry and vojem, and finally a forced marriage because the hen is already laying eggs!

Legend: M = Male; F = Female

M: Kaiboro mozo kombo, zobor apurbaiecho
Tambddem xenkrem, xedachim pakam, rupest dista to
Ani sadh ghaltoch kombo, kombo-kander kombiancho
Sezarnigelea kombianim mojea kombeak pirdear kelo

F: Xeu, xeu, xeu hi moji kombi
Rupan assa kaibori, pollounk dista gori, gori
Anik dekun tika patienam mhunn paiank bandlea dori
