Lyrics - Assamese
(Folk song from India)
Amare moina xubo e,
Barite bogori rubo e,
Barire bogori poki xori goley,
Moinai butoli khabo.
English Translation – Lullaby
The little one sleeps,
While they plant a jujube tree.
When the jujube berry is ripe and falls,
It will be sweet and the little one can eat it. (source)

The Time signature of the song is incorrect.
It should be 5/8 instead of 3/4.
Do you have a copy of a score you could send me? From some of the recordings I listened to, it sounds like it’s in triple meter. Thanks!
In my own research on this song, I located this version which seems to alternate meters from 5 beats to 6. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rRakCMbioYY&list=PL9ByGEWM7VWyuFhnKf5aERvg6IJ1bFFhX&index=2
Actually, it seems to be in 5 the whole time.
