Sammi song in English
The Boat (my body)
Of the Invincible
In you lying the master sleeping

the veil
Small white cloth
Has been tied,
with the bone of a fish
On it is embroidered
all love and hate

Sammi my companion
Like twine
Spinning twine
All the time

spins twine
never ending
Sammi gets tired

[Repeat: Sammi my Sammi spins vaan* ]

I sacrifice my life for you Sammi my love…

English expression by Amarjit Chandan and Sidharth
