Basmati Wrapsody
~ Freddie McCurry & Shahrukh Khan ~

[This is Robert's parody of Freddie Mercury's iconic Bohemian Rhapsody.
Mamak is an Indian-Muslim street side restaurant found in Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia, open 24 hours a day. It is thought that the term originated from the word 'mama' which is frequently used by Tamil-Muslims meaning 'uncle'.]

Is this the real rice? Is this just chapati?
Sore in my backside, no escape from masala tea
Open your eyes, look out for the mice and see
I'm just a Mumbai boy, I need my roti
Because I'm chilli come, chilli go, little high, little low
Anyway the fan blows doesn't really matter to me, to me.
(first verse was not sung in the video)

Mamak, just killed a lamb
Put a bun against its head
Threw my chopper, now it's dead.
Mamak, basmati rice had just begun
But now it's gone bad and thrown it all away

Mamak, ooh (any way the fan blows)
Didn't mean to make it too dry
If not it'll be fried rice again this time tomorrow
Curry on, curry on as if nothing really matters

Too late, the police has come
Send someone down to pay my fine
Bollywood music's playing all the time
Goodbye, everybody, I've got to cook
Gonna leave all the food behind and face the wok.

Mamak, ooh (any way the fan blows)
I don't wanna to dine
Sometimes I wish I'd never eaten my dish at all

Basmati! No, we will never let you go (let him go!)
Shahrukh Khan has put a red chilli inside for me, for me, for me

Nothing really matters
Any Mamak can see
Nothing really matters
Nothing really matters to me

Any way the fan blows
