6 FAMOUS LINEAGE BAUL SONGS FROM THIS ONE AND ONLY LINEAGE OF BAUL FROM BIRBHUM

The only Legendary Baul and the last of the real Bauls of Bengal, (Lineage Baul) Nabani Das Khyappa Baul


Baul songs

Baul songs from this lineage, these songs and the tune are from Babu Kishan's lineage and his family. Most Bauls now sing them but have no idea who the author is.

Nabani Das Khyapa Baul wrote the lyrics and tune for:
  1. Ghole Malee Ghole Malee,
  2. Bhalo Kore Porga Schoole  -Nabani Das Baul song and tune, it is a song about about Sri Chaitanya and Nityananda (Nitai)  Revolution of Love and Baul Kirtan. The Vaishnava Bauls made this revolution famous because they are the original Das and Dasi, it was Nitai who taught Baul song and dance to Chaitanya.

Gaudiya Math and Iskcon hijacked ‘Vaishnava Baul Kirtan’ and song and dance distorting this tradition. There is something that people need to understand Chaitanya was a scholar, he was not a poet or Baul, it was Nityananda and his lineage going back thousands of years that were the poets, philosophers and musical, the original Hare Krishna singers and dancers.

  1. Menka Mathay Delo,
  2. Hridmjhare Rakhbo,
  3. Kichhu Din Mone Mone. ​Kichchu Din Mone Mone was officially recorded by my father Purna Das Baul  in the 1960's at India's First Record company, Hindustan Records.Kicchu Din Mone Mone was written by Nabani Das Khyapa Baul and it is part of this lineage Baul.
  4. Jemon Beni, written by Rasaraj Gosai -  Jemon Beni, written by Rasaraj Gosai - (Nabani Das Baul's uncle) Rasaraj Gosai was a prominent Sanskrit ORAL Scholar and Baul poet in Bengali history. Never married and the greatest tantric and tantric poet. Music composed by Nabani Das Baul and singing by Purna Das Baul who is the first to record this Baul poetry. I just want to let you know this is not a Bengali folk song, none of these songs are folk songs they are Baul songs Spiritual songs. These songs are a deep meditation and Sadhana and are a discourse with a  deep philosophical meaning.

These songs have all been recorded many years back at Hindustan Records which was the first official Music Company in India. Purna Das Baul has recorded all and many others. This is how Baul became famous, through first Nabani Das Khyapa Baul, Purna Das Baul and Babu Kishan aka Krishnendu Das Baul. There are many more songs, however, a separate book will have to include all the music of this lineage. There are thousands of songs.

Three Indian Bengali Cinema Music Directors, Pankaj Mallick, Timir Baran, Raichand Boral, recorded Purna Das Baul an award winning India Vocalist and the Greatest Baul singer. These music directors respected ‘Nabani Das Khyapa Baul’, they were his friends and well wishers.

Approximately twenty times Ghole Malee Ghole Malee was recorded worldwide and eighteen times it was recorded by Babukishan and everytime it was recorded it was a super duper hit.

Today these songs are sung by all Bauls without any of them giving credit to the Baul who wrote it ‘Nabani Das Khyapa Baul’ it is interesting because it was ‘Purna Das Bauland this lineage that own these famous songs but yet they sing them and say they are from a different lineage? This was never a problem previously but I think now that so many ‘fake Bauls’ and stories are being made up, the hijacking and actor Bauls who claim and follow this lineage but never say the truth. It is time for the truth of Baul to come forward to preserve this tradition before it is lost forever.

These are not Bengali Folk Songs they are spiritual songs from this family, this lineage. They should be protected in proper context as respect to this lineage.

The ONE & ONLY "Legendary Baul Women" - Manju Dasi


Manju Dasi Baul, was Babukishan's mother and the very first Baul women to travel outside of India, she traveled outside and inside of India for over 50 years starting in the 1960's. 


Manju Dasi preformed on all the most (prestigious) stages, concert halls and stadiums around the world. She sang in front of at least 4 Presidents of India, top Stars of India and the West, top Musicians, many Ministers in India and hundreds of respected Guru's and Spiritual giants in India and around the world. 

Manju Dasi was not a regular Baul, she was a Baul in the days when people knew who and what was a Baul and she was paid for her work.

 She was a top rated vocalist and musician she taught Baul music to the top. She performed in front of millions of people in India and outside of India. 

In India and around the world you can sing for free, anybody can, even I can go anywhere to sing at different place and dress up as a Baul and today people would believe me because no one has a clue what is real and what is not. I have learned a few songs and can sing and lecture for free, but I will never be a Baul even after 12 years 24/7, it is just impossible even though I am a women, I am not from Baul, I can learn it all but I can never be Manju Dasi or Brajabala Dasi or Radharani Dasi? 

In today's world you must know your worth. Manju and Purna Das Baul were # One, India Vocalists the first to travel oversea's and yes they were Lineage Baul. They knew how to sing Baul songs, they knew who wrote the poetry and they knew that Baul originates in Sanatan Dharma not in Buddhism or Islam. 

Just as Babu Kishan is an accomplished Composer, a creative genius and a Baul Guru, he should not be expected to sing for free because fake Bauls new Baul singers are singing for free, with so much drama and most people do not even know, it is not Baul at all. They say Baul and Baul Master but they are not Baul. They have made up their Lineage, there is not other Baul Lineage except this lineage of Baul. 

There are other Lineages for other groups but not for Baul. The only Lineage of Baul comes from Ekkachakra Birbhum Bengal. They are descendant of Sri Nityananda who was a Avadhuta Baul. 

Not all Bauls in this lineage are Avadhuta's however, Nabani Das Khyapa Baul was, he followed the path of Baul Tantric Avadhuta. This is well known and well recorded. Remember this lineage of Baul and their songs have all been recorded and preserved decades ago. 

Remember what the new Baul singers are singing are songs from this lineage, such as Hridmajahare Rakhbo poetry of 
Nabani Das Khyapa Baul, and Kichhu Din Mone Mone which were already recorded in the 1960's by Hindustan Records singing by Purna Das Baul. A women new Baul singer making up a poets name on Kichhu Din Mone Mone. How can you call yourself a Baul Master? When you don't even know the name or say you are from a lineage but sing the songs of this lineage posting another name to Nabani Das Baul's song?

You get what you invest in. If you want to know real Baul, there is a fee or donation. This family of Baul has fundraised for hundreds of temples, organizations and groups for decades. They have fundraised for others.

Manju should be remembered she was a Baul, the wife of Purna Das Baul. She is the one and only Legendary (Lineage) Baul who took Baul to the world. Her story must be told, a few are tying to copy her and the other Legends of this (one and only Lineage). Authentic Baul singing comes from the soul, it is not drama, tears rolling down you eyes. It takes a lifetime to master Baul, women or not. 



Manju Dasi is legendary, her story is legendary, she is the first and only authentic Women Baul to travel worldwide for more than 50 years she was side by side with her husband the Legendary "Purna Das Baul' along with Babu Kishan.

Manju Dasi beside Purna Das Paul on one side, The (now) President of India on the other side (Pranab Mukerjee).

Manju Das Baul was the first person to record Lalon Fakir songs, she was always interested in preserving Lalon Fakir songs as she was from Bangladesh when it was part of India. 

A LINEAGE Baul Is be brilliant energetic, genius  as they are from the Oral Sanskrit tradition of Vaishnavism in Bengal.
Manju Dasi is from the one and only Lineage of Baul, the roots of Baul, she was best friends with Indira Gandhi and traveled all of India playing on the (most prestigious, biggest stadiums and stages in India in front of millions of people). 

Manji Dasi was a Classically trained Indian singer. If not for her no one would know what Baul is in this world. She started traveling back in the 1960's. 

1970's in Australia

Manju Dasi is the first women Baul to travel outside of India. She is from a Lineage of Women Bauls who were Guru's to other women. Brajabal Dasi, Radharani Dasi, and many others who were Legends in Birbhum Bengal. Manju Dasi has music recorded on the biggest Music Labels in India.

Manju Dasi and Indira Gandhi, they traveled all of India many times and Manju Dasi sang in front of Millions of people for Indira Gandhi, Sanjay and Rajiv Gandhi along with Purna Das Baul and Babu Kishan.. This is history, this is a Legendary Baul Women, her story will be told along with other Legendary Baul Women. They must not be forgotten and replaced with made up stories. This is the only Lineage of Bauls of Bengal. (period) full and final.

Nobody in India or outside would know who the Bauls are without this pioneering one and only lineage. Baul is preserved but it is extinct.


www.babukishan.org

These photos were taken by Rabindranath Tagore, Nabani Das Khyeppa Baul was the last real authentic Baul to walk on earth. He was a super healer, Tantric Avadhuta Baul. 




Being a Baul back then was a very difficult life in Bengal, if anybody thinks it is difficult today, back in Nabani's time it was super difficult. He wandered all over India, Nepal and Tibet. He was a sadhaka at Tarapith and had the blessings of Bhama Khepa and many other well known. He was a Legend and when he passed in 1969 the whole of Birbhum closed down in his honour. He never came to the West.


Photo of Nabani Das Khyapa Paul, Rabindranath Tagore


In the last 50 years during Babukishan time he was telling how difficult to educate people about Baul back in the 1960's until the modern computer and internet. They traveled and made arrangements all over the globe by mail, they set the ground for the new Baul singers to copy and follow. 

If not for Purna Das Baul, Nabani Das Baul, Lakshman Das Baul, Manju Dasi and Babu Kishan aka Krishnendu Das Paul nobody would know what or who a Baul is because it was them who traveled and sang for the past almost 80 years worldwide, teaching at Universities. It is easy to sit on the side line and criticize who is Baul and what has happened to the Baul of Bengal.
50 years this Year since The Bauls came to America, 1967

There are very few people today if any who understand what and who the Bauls are. I often hear the Bauls do not speak sanskrit.. that is completely wrong. They did speak Sanskrit and were the biggest Sanskrit Scholars in the Oral Tradition. The young generation and when I say young I mean the people who have only observed the Bauls for the past 30 or 40 years do not know who the Bauls are because the ones that have come after this time period do not speak Sanskrit. Most do not even know who wrote what song or the discourses behind the songs. Baul is being sold as something it was never meant to be. Sad but true and now we have the fundraisers who are using Baul to fundraise. Baul is already preserved.

This family, these Bauls were extraordinary, in talent and ability. Nabani Das Khyapa Baul sang for Nehru before his speeches all over India. Nabani was the Baul who initiated Rabindranath Tagore into Baul and Tagore appointed Nabani as Baul professor at his University in Shatiniketan. Purna Das Baul, Manju Dasi and Babukishan did the same for Indira Gandhi, Sanjay and Rajiv Gandhi. They sang on the most prestigious stages in India and world wide, no one can claim or compare.

Nabani Das Khyeppa Baul was LEGENDARY in India, he never left India, it was Purna Das Baul and Laxshman Das Baul his 2 son's who were the first Bauls to leave India, on their fathers advice to Sally Grossman and her husband Albert B Grossman and Allen Ginsberg. Nabani was Allen 
Ginsberg's Guru, no other Bauls... especially from Bangladesh had any contact with Ginsberg or Bob Dylan. 

You have to know that no Baul had ever been out of India expect Purna Das Baul until the 1950's he went to Russia. The first Bauls to travel to America 50 years ago in 1967 because they were the only Lineage Bauls.

Manju Dasi and Babukishan, also worked endlessly preserving this one and only Lineage of the Bauls. They preformed at concerts around the world, teaching at Universities and giving Baul respectability. It may seem like it was easy but it was not as their English was weak and there were no computers and telephone cost a fortune back in the day, from India to the world. it was very expensive they gave up their life to preserve the Baul of Bengal.



Purna Das Baul performing in Delhi in front of Indira Gandhi, all Ministers and The President of India at the time Zail Singh (1982-1987)
The one and only Great Gospel singer from America Mahalia Jackson as a guest in Purna Das Bauls home in Calcutta, she loved his singing and when she came to Calcutta to visit Mother Theresa she had to visit Purna Das Baul.

Manju Dasi is the one and only Legendary Baul Women to travel outside of India for more than 50 years. I am going to write the real story of Baul women. Today everybody calls themselves a Baul it is seriously messed up and making a mess of this the only lineage of Baul. Why, I do not know, I guess it is a way to fame because of the accomplishments of this lineage. But please do not sing their songs and put other poets names on, it is so distasteful.
Others Bauls have followed or tried to follow in this lineages foot steps, going where they went and floating off the work and ground they laid. Babu and his family opened the doors for all Bauls, many have tried to do the same, it seem today people are more confused than ever about who and what Baul is mostly because of books and new Baul singers. This lineage family of Bauls has been traveling for more that 70 years. Babukishan for more than 40 years, spreading his one and only Lineage. There is no other lineage of Bauls, do not be fooled.

Purna Das Baul was given the title Baul Samarat by the first President of India:


Rajendra Prasad (1884-1963) he was given the award because he was India's first Vocal singer outside of India to win a Gold Metal for his vocal performance at the Russian Youth Festival which included participants such as Indian Cinema super star Raj Kapoor and Nargis ect.
Purna Das Paul was the first Gold Metal for Bengal from a Baul, nobody knew what a Baul was he did not give himself this title, it was an honour bestowed upon him and yes he has it on the outside of his house and he should be proud as he was given many, many titles, awards and honours over his almost 80 years, he is a great singer, one of the first super famous India Vocalist who traveled outside of India (that is Legendary). 
Mick Jagger, Purna Das Baul a Babu Kishan age 9 @ Jaggers place in Nice France 1971. They had come from London after performing at the fundraiser for Bangladesh hosted by The Beatles and Rolling Stones. Purna Das Paul was recording an Album called Jai Bangla.

Purna Das Baul sang for many 'Indian Presidents' and all top politicians he sang to including the Russian President, American President and in India at every political function in India. (This is singing Baul on the most prestigious stages.
Purna Das Baul brought Baul to an international platform before this Baul was no where just in the Village, how can anybody compare themselves? 

Purna Das Paul was very close to Indira Gandhi and he received his second Presidents Award for 'Lifetime Achievement and International Cultural Ambassador for India" from Neelam Sanjeeva Reddy. 

Babu Kishan knows he was there and was totally dedicated to his father along with his mother Manju Das. No Baul or singers has achieved or come close to what he has achieved. Nabani Das Paul his father was the great illusive Avadhuta Baul who was written about and respected by great Poets and Authors of his time, just because the young people do not know or remember, does not mean it was so. 
At Allen Ginsberg's in New York, Babu remained in touch with Ginsberg for decades, visiting every years until his death. Ginsberg loved Nabani whom he met in India. I have no idea why any other Baul anywhere in this world talks about Ginsberg. He did not associate with any other. Same with Bob Dylan. All the new Bauls love to tell stories.

Nabani Das Paul was not only a Sadhaka he also was a freedom fighter and gave up so much to his country. He sang and was friends with Neru, he would sing before his talks to the nation.

If any other Baul can accomplish what these Bauls have done on their own merit please let it be so but that does not change history. Babu has preserved this lineage because this is the only Baul Lineage who have made a platform for other NEW Baul singers and Bengali Culture making an International platform from the village to the World.

They started off so poverty stricken, it was Sitaram Das Omkarnath who suggested to Purna Das Baul to sing on the trains, there is a whole story about this, before Purna Das Baul no Bauls sang on the trains of India. Nabani was a wandering Sadhu and Avadhuta Tantric and gone all the time. The times were different, he did not stay home until Babu was born in 1962 and he agreed to take care of his first Grandchild the little Krishnendu Das Baul (Babu Kishan) until Nabani Das Baul passed away in 1969. Babu Kishan had 8 years sitting in Nabani’s lap during this time he met and was given darshan with the greatest Guru’s, Swami’s, Sadhu’s, Yogi’s, Siddha’s and Nath’s that traveled all over India to see Nabani Das Khyapa Baul. Those times and those Guru’s do not exist anymore.
Manju Dasi the only Legendary Baul Women with her great friend Indira Gandhi.

And may I add that Babukishan is the first Baul to ever be educated with a BA and MA from Calcutta University. He is the first Baul to be a Music Composer, Film Maker and Producer he is the first Baul to Live in North America, he made it easier for the new Bauls all the traveling and interviews on TV books and education. He is the first Multi talented Baul and he is a Baul and has done it all on his own merit, no help from his family and no complaining. He is first Baul to record Baul all the songs, and today you will hear Bauls sing his songs, his recorded music but they make like they are the ones who created the songs. 


There is even a new Baul women singer who has taken a Nabani Das Baul song recorded in the 1960’s by Hindustan Records and put another poets name on it? It makes ones head shake at the audacity, ignorance or not she also, is making up a lineage that does not exist?

Babu Kishan’s contribution to his Lineage (the key word his) is astronomical time wise and devotion wise. Key word because there is no other lineage of Baul (period).


Babu Kishan still has all the songs of his lineage inside of him as his memory is like a lazer. He remembers every story, every detail, especially of who is who and what he did for some of the old Baul singers. I suspect Babu’s memory is so great because he learned Sanskrit in the Oral Tradition. 
The Bauls today do not know this so they say, oh it is against Baul to know Sanskrit they only know how to talk about Tantric Sex and smoke Ganja but the Ganja is smoking them.

Pranab Mukerjee the President of India, they are related through Babu Kishan's late mother Manji Dasi and Pranab's late wife. So many stories all connected and spending much time together. 

Vaishnava Bauls of Birbhum the place where Bauls originate spoke Sanskrit. There is so much garbage on the internet being spread, it is a dilution of such a beautiful tradition. 

I mean Bengal needs to face it that the Bauls are extinct, for whatever reason? Many reason and this has left the door open for fake Bauls making up stories, singing out of tune, and stating they are greater than they are. I am convinced that people in the west would not know a true Baul from a fake. A true Guru from a real Guru, or a real Yogi from a fake... in India today too, they just don't know and that leaves the door open to fundraising in the name of Baul to preserve what already has been preserved.

Hrid Majahare Rakhbo is written by Baul Saint Avadhuta Sri Nabani Das Khyapa Baul , it is his poetry!



Hridmajahare Rakhbo poetry of 
Nabani Das Khyapa Baul
This lineage is the Path of Radha.

Purna Das Baul was the first to record this in his father's tune, Babu Kishan was the second to record in his tune composition. 

It is Nabani Das Baul's his Grandfather Guru's song but Babu Kishan being a composer changed the tune to a trance tune.

 Now there are literally hundreds of people all over India are singing this song without any idea where the song originates. Even Shah Ru Khan sang it in Bengal.
It is Nabani Das Khyapa Bauls poetry.

This Lineage is the (only) Lineage of Baul. Their is no other Lineage of Baul. This lineage is the roots of Baul, they originate in Ekkachakra Birbhum India.

The path of Radha, Kali, Tara, the path of the Feminine Divine.

This is a Nabani Das Khyappa Baul song, the below singing by his Grandson Babu Kishan in a combination of styles of his father Purna Das Baul and Grandfather Nabani Das Baul. 

Purna Das Baul first recorded this in the 1960's Hindustan Records. It has already been recorded and preserved by this family of Baul.




Sri Nabani Das Khyapa Baul
What Nabani Das is saying, my translation into English with the help of Babu Kishan

The song is of the silent love which is the deepest intimacy of love expression, that takes place silently between beloved Krishna, and Radha.  This profound deep love flows back and forth between Radha and Krishna. They do not want to lose eye contact.

I will keep you in my heart always and never let you go, because if the golden person of my life krishna goes I will never, ever get this person again, there is only one, there is no other for me, Krishna is my other half.

Krishna is invisible, love is invisible, everyday you have to say I love you, I love you, I love you is the mantra. 

Love is like that out of site out of mind, you must constantly remember your beloved.

Radha always keeps in her heart, the place of Braja.
Braj is where the pastime of Krishna and Radha take place the memories of her play with her love Krishna.

Nabani Das Baul and Brajabala Dasi
Purna Das Baul and Manju Dasi

When Krishna and Radha are out of sight of each other, there is a strong feeling of speration, of deep loss, so they never want to be out of sight, they want to gaze into each others eyes every moment

RADHA/KRISHNA are one, they are constantly pulling each other, constantly focused on each other. Eye to Eye, Heart to Heart,  Mind to Mind, always remembering their deep Love.

Nabani is saying, "I want to go to Braja and take the dust of Braja, spread all over my body, let it seep into my soul, I want to keep them in my heart on my body forever and never to forget, so I can feel Radha/Krishna, and their intimacy lila. I want to become Radha/Krishna in every pour of my being.

I want to be mad in the name of Radha. 
The path of Radha.




Baul Tantra:
I have added these Vaishnava Baul practices from this lineage here because it will help one understand that there is a deeper practice of Love for the Bauls in following the path of Radha. This is very simplistic and there is much more involved.


Nayika sadhana partner sadhana - where all focus goes to the soul mate, sadhana of a partner constant connection, mystical love, strong attachment, all imagination and poetic thought is directed around the partner. Concentration and focus are needed a deep yogic focus as there are so many distractions in this world today. 

The partners feel each other deeply if one is sick the other feels the connection is strong, they are joined at the heart and above the head tied together no words are needed. This is soul to soul and has very little to do with the body. These practices take a lifetime, they are not meant to be shared with just anybody. You must both be an accomplished Yogi before even grasping. It take great wisdom. Baul is not a beginners path and from what I understand there are very few if any left that can teach this appropriately. Most people just suck the unsuspecting Yoga or Tantric tourists in and it can be very dangerous.

Rati car-dande sadhana, Kama and Kamini sutra, desire, again a mystical yoga not regular unconsious sex. Bauls use the word Rati Sangam for mystical union between soul mates or Monar Manush, a women Baul is called a Baulini. 

This sadhana is a higher level advanced mystical practice not for regular people. In most traditions we are taught to give up attachment but without attachments there is no deep love, this goes against the grain of what many are teaching. This again, take a lifetime to master. Just as if one is a wise old kung fu master, you do not automatically arrive here. It take great wisdom.

Love a love that is ecstatic, crazy, wild, love and a love in all the hearts bhava's (moods), then comes years and years of being a mystic, sadhana and meditation as a couple. To do the Rati practices you must be awakened and have all your energy channels open. Baul Kundalini Yoga is flowing waves of bliss 
(Ananda Larhari). 
Sri Nabani Das Khyapa Baul gave the name Ananda Lahari to the Baul Mystic drum called the Gugubi or Khamak.
(Udasi Bauls do not even need a partners they can easily reach to that level through their mystical sadhana of creating all inside their factory including their ideal women).

Vaishanava Baul brings the male and female into one body. Radha, and Krishna live in their hearts, they view Radha as superior because she has the power to pull Krishna. You will not a Baul never shaves their heads, the reason for this is Krishna has hair, and remember half of them is feminine so they like to wear ear rings also.. They want to emulate Radha too. This is their Lila.

I only want to be in a deep bhava crazy for Radha God intoxicated for Radha, mad in Radha's name in oneness with Radha..and Krishna

When Kirhsna smiles all the birds fly, deers play, flowers sing, everything becomes alive in Beauty, Colors become brighter.. It is Radha who makes Krishna smile.



Krishna was ugly so black, but his smile made him beautiful, Radha made Krishna smile, she made him beautiful, all the gopis became alive, everybody woke up, everything was God intoxicated, alive, happy, vivid, bright, awake, ecstatic. This is exactly how a Baul should make you feel. A Baul activates Shakti. Baul is the path of Radha.

When Radha and Krishna have eye contact, "which they do not do in Indian culture with anybody, you only have eye contact with your beloved, only your beloved can look into your soul." 

They would feel I want to be in eye contact, and I will gaze and go inside feel love..soul mate love. The love is in the eyes, the gaze of deep soul love.


How many millions of years I have been traveling one life, to one, to just get this human body so I can feel Radha/Krishna together in my soul.  If I sing beautiful Krishna, the king of the flute will be kind to me, and come to me  and then I will never let go Radha is saying. Krishna is Peace, Krishna say Radha is peace, they are soul mates, there is a constant flow back and forth. You are great, no you are greater, you are greater, no you are the greatest, no you are the greatest, no you are the super duper greatest back and forth, higher and higher.


Babu Kishan thinks western culture will not understand the depth. I will try to get more later and try to do a better interpretation, but it is really hard, because these songs are just seeds of higher philosophy.



Babu Kishan recorded this song in Woodstock New York at the Bearsville Studio of  Albert B Grossman's studio where Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix the same studio his father recorded here back in 1967, 50 years ago at Woodstock.

 Babu recorded in 2004 with Levon Helm, Garth Hudson, Al Aronowitz, Patty Smith, and Robert Thurman, Dave Mathews present they danced, and danced while Babu was recording.

 Thanks to his long time friend Sally Grossman,  Dave Mathews, said he had never heard anything like it, Babu did not have a clue who Dave Mathew was? Babu said it was lots of fun to make them dance, as they all really enjoyed.

Very strange to have to copy right any of this but others are taking these stories and making them their own. It is a joke. Not only the stories but the songs.
