Romanization request: Bhangra prosody

Hello,

This is an odd request and my attempts to Google it have not been fruitful.  I want to get a sense of bhangra prosody, specifically the meter.  Could someone romanize the choruses (or main sections) of a few typical bhangra tunes so I can count the syllables?  I have a poor enough grip on Punjabi phonology that romanizing it myself by ear would take a really, really long time :[
If someone should take this up--thank you, thank you, thank you!  Some strategies I could use to accomplish this myself would also come in handy as plan B
