Leaving Mumbai

(A guitar song)

Goodbye

Mumbai

Good-goodbye

Steel Grey Sky

Goodbye

Eyes that lie

Hurrying home

Every Day

Goodbye

Bombed out scars

Spirit of the people

And all that farce

Goodbye

Till we meet

You never sleep

but I have to eat

Goodbye

Leopold

You are ageless

I grow old

Goodbye

Arabian Sea

Nice to know you

but now we shall see

  1. You say good bye but I have never met her!
    Maybe if I was dipped in her rivers’ water I would get better?
    You speak with knowledge of that which I can only dream of
    I have ideas in my head of flashing eyes colourful saris and a white dove.
    Call centres, flashing smiles, diamonds and gold bangles and peacock cries
    You have knowledge and say goodbye I can only dream of Mumbai!
    Yet again you inspire me!
