Text heard on Sample:
I have brought you a seductive leaf
I have brought you a spicy betel*.
Put it in your mouth, relish it,
Having fallen in love with me, remember me.
When the sun rises, remember me,
When the sun sets, remember me,
As you remember your father and mother,
As you remember the house where you were born,
As you remember its doors and its stairs.
Day or night, remember me,
If thunder roars, remember, remember,
If the wind howls, remember, remember,
If lightning flashes, remember, remember, remember, remember.
If the cock's crowing rings out,
If you hear time ticking by,
And hour follows hour, speeding past, telling its story,
If the sun follows the moon,
In your memory be with me.
Knock, knock, knock,
Here I come.
Knock, knock, knock,
I look through the window.
Do you hear my heart?
There is such fire in it.
Do you feel my soul?
Remember me.

*parings of the areca nut are commonly chewed in the East with a betel leaf
