This is our entry for Saahitya 2016's Sir Mix-A-Lot song parody contest! We rewrote the lyrics to Call Me Maybe in the style of an Indian Matrimonial Ad. Many thanks to Krupa Varghese for being the stellar actor in this video!

P.S. - Pondati means 'wife' in Tamil.

Here are the lyrics to the song!

I’ve waited so long for this
My boy’s in need of a miss
D’you think you have what it takes
To be his pondati?

Our family’s wealthy and large
We own 2 Mercedes cars
Kitchen that’s state of the art
For his pondati

M. B. A., really handsome
Joint family, amma’s chellam
6 feet, girls go crazy
Shoe size 10, it matters baby!

[Chorus:]

Hey, tall thin fair girl
We’re bride seeking
So here’s our number
Just send us pictures!

In no time at all
You’ll be making babies
So here’s our number
Just call me maybe!

Hey tall thin fair girl
Let’s be family
So here’s our number
Be our pondati!

Submit samples of
Your round chapathis
So here’s our number
Just call me maybe!

In search of a homely girl
Who will rock my son’s world
No Facebook. Must not wear shorts.
Be a good pondati.

Pondati can work part-time
But must be home before five
To make sambhar vada
For our darling son!

M. B. A., really handsome
Joint family, amma’s chellam
6 feet, girls go crazy
Shoe size 10, it matters baby!

[Chorus:]

Hey, tall thin fair girl
We’re bride seeking
So here’s our number
Just send us pictures!

In no time at all
You’ll be making babies
So here’s our number
Just call me maybe!

Hey tall thin fair girl
Let’s be family
So here’s our number
Be our pondati!

Submit samples of
Your round chapathis
So here’s our number
Just call me maybe!

Once you come into my house
You will have no life
‘Cause you’ll be a wife
You will have no, no, life

Once you come into my house
You will have no life
‘Cause you’ll be a wife
You will have no, no, life

In no time at all
You’ll be making babies
So here’s our number
Just call me maybe!

Hey tall thin fair girl
Let’s be family
So here’s our number
Be our pondati!

Submit samples of
Your round chapathis
So here’s our number
Just call me maybe!

Once you come into my house
You will have no life
‘Cause you’ll be a wife
You will have no, no, life

Once you come into my house
You will have no life
‘Cause you’ll be a wife

Just call me, maybe!
