Dabrungsi Dabrungsi

A song by a child anxious to go play and meet with his friends.

This song is written by Dipto Singh Barman. This song is narrated by a small kid who is very anxious to go and play with friends. As we all know that kids like to stay out all day and play with their friends, here in this song the kid wants to go and play with friends and so asks the anklet on feet not to make noise so that he could go quietly without the knowledge of his parent. He is so impatient to go meet his friends that he bribes the anklet with food and milk.
