Here is the lyrics for the song Paurakhi:

Baa le ta bhanthe
Aafai nai gari khaa
Gaye ma muglaan tira
Yaha ma daridra
Nepaal lai bhari nahos
Laasai ko bagaicha
Jaanchhu ma muglaan baru
Hatyaaara mari jaaa

Pardesi saaino aafanta
Aafanta bhani
Janchhu ma muglaan kutumba
Kutumba daridrai

Bidesi ghar ko ek maano maagera
Basdina nepal ma haat khutta baadhera
Chhimeki dai ko hoina ma merai peer
Jaanchhu ma muglaan baru
Aama ko taarna peer
Das muri dhaan maa pach muri
Paach muri bhoos ani
Jaanchhu ma muglaan ma sena mai
Sena mai khusi le
