The lyrics were tweaked by the cop as he managed traffic and warned drivers about the repercussions of parking at the wrong place. He was seen gesturing citizens, asking to take their car to the right parking area.
"Okay, parking mein jaao. Very good. Thank you," he said while singing. Daler Mehndi the video, saying that he is "glad" that his song was used by the traffic police to inspire people to follow rules.
The lyrics further went like this: “Traffic police teri car chukk lai gai, traffic police teri car chukk lai gai, chori hogi, chori ho gayi sochti reh gayi, bolo tara rara. Gaddi nu crane lai gai, bolo tara rara. (Traffic police might have towed your vehicle for parking in the no parking zone, and you might be thinking that it has been stolen.)"
