I am looking for lyrics to a song from India called Baariye Bubly. Do you know this folksong? I learned it is about a little girl and a monkey.

Thank you for your wonderful resources.

I think Baariye Bubly is called Bubly and the Monkey in English. If anyone can help with the original lyrics and/or an English translation, please comment below.

Thanks in advance!
