Punjabi Songs in English - Beware of the Peacock

Panjabi MC's Mundiya To Bach Ke is a song that non-Punjabi speakers always ask me to translate. Now I can point them to this video by the Desi Comedy channel on youtube.

Beware of the Peacock is a translation of three famous bhangra tracks: Mundiya To Bach Ke, Morni and Imran Khan's Amplifier. The English versions highlight how the lyrics don't really make any sense. The humour isn't just limited to the musicians - watch out for some jokes from the audience too!
