That rules the heart so staunch and true,
That nerves the eyes of hazel hue, .
That steers the arm all cut and scored,
That wields the sharp and trusty sword,
That guards the big ancestral gem
That decks the royal diadem
      Of the Rajah of Chutneypore.
Chorus.
  Of Punka, of Punka, the Rajah of Chutneypore!
