Are you looking for Aaru?

Are you looking for Aaru?

‘Are you looking for me?’
came a voice from a rickshaw
and our time in Kochin
took a bit of a detour

Our Ganesha on wheels
dealt with at first with suspicion
Because wherever he takes us
he’s on commission

So whenever we’re arsed
we’ll make a quick stop
and try not to be sold to
at a government shop

He gets his rupees
and we get a lift
but the incredible salesmen
we have to resist

‘This bowl’s from the monasteries how much will you bid?’

‘Throw in a tea and call it six hundred quid!’

Le Petit Coquin
as his windshield does read
a loveable rogue
with his heart on his sleave

On a quest for girls
he’s shy and frustrated
and recently dumped
by someone he dated

and he gets upset
because he’d like to find
a beautiful girl
who is equally kind

A European
who is funny and free
just like Aaru,
‘Are you looking for me?’
