Ghoda gaadi, goda gaadi
Mari tabadaka, tabadaka chaale re, ghoda gaadi…
Ghoda gaadi…goda gaadi

Avo bhaiya beni tamane gaadima besaadu
Dur dur farva ley javu meethi ser karaavu
Gham gham ghughara vaage re, goda gaadi…
Ghoda gaadi…goda gaadi

Avo mama mami tamane chandralok ley javu
Neel gaganama vaadal sange pavanani lehr karavu
Chara-ra-ra peyda bole re, ghoda gaadi…
Ghoda gaadi…goda gaadi

Ghoda gaadima besaadi kaka moj karave
Sansaarna baaluda sahu geet madhura gave
Tham tham theka vaage re, ghoda gaadi
Ghoda gaadi…goda gaadi

Ghoda gaadi, goda gaadi
Mari tabadaka, tabadaka chaale re, ghoda gaadi…
Ghoda gaadi…goda gaadi
Hose and cart,  my horse and cart
It goes tabadaka, tabadaka as it travels along,
Hose and cart,  my horse and cart

Come my brother and my sister, you can sit in my cart
I’ll take you far away, on a lovely journey
Gham gham the bells jingle away
Horse cart…..my Horse Cart

Come Uncle and Auntie, I’ll take you to the moon
You’ll enjoy the breeze as  you travel with the clouds in the blue sky
Chara-ra-ra the wheels go round
Horse cart…..my Horse Cart

In the horse and cart we sit, Uncle entertains us
All the Sansaar children sing sweet songs together
Tham tham the cart jolts up and down
Horse cart…..my Horse Cart

Hose and cart,  my horse and cart
It goes tabadaka, tabadaka as it travels along,
Hose and cart,  my horse and cart
