Bombay Meri Hai became a popular song that people from Mumbai belted out with such jingoistic fervor that people from other major Indian cities started to feel J and they decided to modify the words by simply replacing Bombay with their own city name (highly unimaginative). The most recognizable line from the song that every Indian knows is "Ladies are nice, gents are full of spice." Awkward uncles would suddenly come alive when this song was played and displayed particular enthuness for this line.

Every city eventually had nice ladies and gents full of spice..

Usage

Bom Bom Bom Bombay Meri Hai, Ladies Are Nice Gents Are Full Of Spice, Bom Bom Bom Bom Bom Bom Bombay Hurray.
