Ramo Ramo lyrics, Bollywood movie "Dosti"

It's amazing what you can find on youtube if you have enough time to fritter... here's a video clip from a 1964 Bollywood movie, with Serbian+English subtitles for the lyrics of Ramo, Ramo, Druze Moj, by Slobodan Ilic:

Here's the link to the video with Ramo Ramo:

Here's a link to about the same spot in a full version of the movie, which has a different song at that point, presumably in Hindi

Here's the Wikipedia entry for the 1964 Dosti movie:

Activity Involving Dancing and Other Rhythmic Movements





If you watch TV, you've probably seen the 30-sec version of this commercial -- here's an expanded version on youtube (warning, the song will probably be playing in your head the rest of the day if you watch this.  And, don't try this at home!):


(Note: I have nothing to do with UHC, just find this commercial amusing.)
