  • Music:

The Sa-Ri-Ga song

You know the degrees of the scale in Carnatic music? Sa, Ri, Ga, Ma, Pa, Dha, Ni, Sa. It's easy to remember them:

Sa: a tool, a cutting tool
Ri: it means to do again
Ga: a fish, a long thin fish
Ma: she's married to your pa
Pa: he's married to your ma
Dha: an Irish name for Pa
Ni: a joint within your leg
Which will bring us back to Sa, Sa, Sa, Sa....

(With apologies to Oscar Hammerstein II)
