First, it's important to know what a dirge is: it's a funeral song. This song is about a little swami, probably a generic name for an impoverished boy overseas, who refuses to sing a dirge song, walking always at a steady pace. I think the song is a message to those of us who live in comfort, yet still complain about stuff that in the end really doesn't matter. If little swami can be happy in his own way, why can't we?
