COMEDY SONG "ADIM ANI ATAM" by M. Boyer


LYRICS OF COMEDY SONG "ADIM ANI ATAM" by M. Boyer

by Domnic Fernandes




Whenever M. Boyer sang a comedy song, the moment he made an entry on the stage, people went berserk and whistled before he could even start to sing a song because they knew they were out for a treat; he never let them down. For comedy song, his specialty was dancing on the stage in the form of an “attko” (number 8) - just as one performs an “attko” when taking a motorcycle riding test! He would enter the stage and go into an “attko” and stop only when he began to sing a song; he repeated the “attko” at the end of each chorus. He is the only singer to be encored with whistles and shouts “anko ieo, anko ieo, anko ieo” (encore, encore, encore - come again, come again, come again) for around a dozen times per song.
Fast
composer as he was, he composed lines instantly and added them to the original song which is what made the public to encore him; they wanted to hear more lines from him than the usual 3 verses and 3 choruses. When people would not stop encoring him, he would appear on the stage for the last time and request the public either in the form of an extra verse/chorus or simply verbally not to bother him again as the director was already upset because the tiatro was getting delayed. Here is one of his comedy songs which he sang in 1978 in “DEV NIT” tiatro by the late Conception (of Anthony-Nelson-Conception trio fame) in Mapusa, Bardez, Goa. The song consists of four verses and five choruses instead of the usual 3 verses and 3 choruses:




“ADIM ani ATAM”

I
Adim cheddo-cheddum mogan poddtoch, kazar zatoch, mhunno sonvsar tannim kelo
Adim dadlo jetan fuddem cholo, bailo lhollu pattlean oxeo alo
Adim bailo ghovachem nanv ghevunk bhietalim, mhunno amcho zait khuim gelo
Atam ‘Caitan’ mhunnon martat ulo, bailen denknno ghalo, mhunttoch ghov zata lolo
Atam ‘Caitan’ mhunnon martat ulo, bailen denknno ghalo, mhunttoch ghov zata lolo

Chorus
Adlim kazaram, hoi chintun roddonk ieta
Atancheo bailo ghovank rokddeoch divorce dita
Gorjechea vellar kombieo soddun amkam veta
Dadle ami kombea baxen sad ghalunk urle puta

II
Adim kazarank kaibore dans nacho - Lancer, Polk, Contradans povpacho
Atam Samba vazoilear nachtat Rumba - makddam baxen dans nhoi to hanspacho

Atam kaido konnankui voddpacho, bailen dans nachpacho ani ghovan mar khavpacho
Atam kaido konnankui voddpacho, bailen dans nachpacho ani ghovan mar khavpacho

Chorus
Adleanchem nesop kitem, kosli tanchi chalu
Ap-aple damink vorot Pedru, Ladru, Salu

Atam konnanchei bailek ghevn motor chalu

III
Adim bailo ghov Gulfan ghelo mhunntoch, gharan bhosson vatt poitalim chittichi
Atam bailo ghov Gulfak ghele mhunntoch, zonelar bhosson vatt poitat cheddeanchi
Adim bail ek, dusreak kednanch bhulonasli, chintun apunn ghorkarn mhunn ghovachi
Atam bailank bhirant nam Devachi, kumar zata Pedruchi, avoi chovgam bhurgeanchi
Atam bailank bhirant nam Devachi, kumar zata Pedruchi, avoi chovgam bhurgeanchi

Chorus
Atanchea bailank sonvoieo zaleat vankddeo
Ghovachea ragan Passporti kortat rokddeo
Arabam borim bonvon bhoreoch ghaltat fugddeo
Moroncheak Goyeam ieatat, zavn sukleleo bokddeo

Here comes the bonus verse and two choruses after the encore:

IV
Adlea tempar kazar zavn ghovan kiteim mhunnot tor, bailo asleo sonsun vorpacheo
Atam bailo vhoddle zaleat re devchar, ghovan kiteim mhunnot tor zogddim korpacheo
Avem Goyem ak’kem bonvon pollelam bhavanim, sogleam ganvam poros bailo boreo Bardezcheo
Punn Bardezan konnui bailo mosteo kortat zalear hanv sozmotam teo mhunn Ponnjecheo
Punn Bardezan konnui bailo mosteo kortat zalear hanv sozmotam teo mhunn Ponnjecheo

Chorus
Bhavanim kitem kazar, kovta takach kovta
Bailo atancheo ghovachea ragan Bomboi danvta
Passporti korun Bomboi sarkim jetan danvta
Tankam thuimsor Arab rokddeoch visa ghevun ravta

Chorus
Bhavanim, bailanim adim kaiborem vid sarlam
Dha bhurgeanchi maim distali champeak ek ful ful’lam
Atancheo bailo forak rokddinch voitat korlam
Tea bailank strong poddtat farmacintlim pirlam




ADIM ani ATAM, M.Boyer-achem kantar khuimchech casettir nam; tem hanvem ostogim Mapxeam Narvekar tiatrachea mattvant record kelelem.
