In some versions "mackhan" and "roti" (i.e. butter and bread) are in reversed order.


Feel free to add your version of this song on Mama Lisa's Blog in the comments here.

Here's the version of this rhyme in the YouTube video:

Nini baba nini
Mackhan roti cheene,
Nina baba so gaya
Mackhan roti hoa gia.

English Translation:

Sleep baby sleep,
Butter, bread and sugar,
Little baby has gone to sleep.
Butter and bread are finished.
