KEHNA HI KYA

gumsum gumsum gup-chup Silent and still,
gumsum gum gup-chup frozen, lost in thought,
gumsum gumsum gup-chup gumsum gum gup-chup silent and still, lost in secret thought,
halchal halchal kho ga'ii terii ho.nTH hai.n tere chup You've gone utterly still; your lips are silent.
khalbal khalbal kho ga'ii terii baiTHii hai tuu chup Your commotion has died down; you sit silently,
pyaare pyaare chehare ne par de diya ishaara but your lovely, lovely face has betrayed you.
dekha terii aa.nkho.n ne hai sapna koii pyaara Your eyes have beheld some lovely dream.
hamse gorii na tuu sharmaa kah de hamse zaraa... Don't shy away from us, beautiful girl; speak to us a little.
         
CHORUS:
kahana hii kya yeh nain ek anjaan se jo mile What can I say? My glance met with a stranger,
chalne lage muhabbat ke jaise ye silsile and it was as if love's patterns were set into motion.
armaan naye aise dil me.n khile jinko kabhii mai.n na jaanuu.n New desires bloomed in my heart such as I've never known.
vo hamse ham unse kabhii na mile kaise mile dil na jaanuu.n We've never met each other; how our hearts met, I cannot know.
ab kya kare.n kya naam le.n kaise unhe.n mai.n pukaaruu.n What should I do now? What name should I take, how should I call out to him?
         
Chorus
pahalii hii nazar me.n kuchh ham kuchh tum ho jaate hai.n yuu.n gum At first glance, somehow we both become lost.
naino.n se barse rimjhim ham pe pyaar ka saavan From our gazes, the patter of love's first rainfall showers down.
sharm thoRii thoRii hamko aa'e to nazare.n jhuk jaa'e.n I grow bashful and lower my eyes.
sitam thoRa thoRa ham pe shokh hawaa bhii kar jaa'e A mischievious breeze plays havoc with me also;
aisii chale aa.nchal uRe dil me.n ek tuufaan uTHe it makes my scarf fly up as it flows, and in my heart a storm arises.
ham to luT ga'e khaRe hii khaRe Simply standing still, I was plundered, looted.
Chorus
gumsum gumsum gup-chup gumsum gup-chup... Silent, lost in secretive thought,
halchal halchal kho ga'ii terii ho.nTH hai.n tere chup you've gone utterly still; your lips are silent.
khalbal khalbal kho ga'ii terii baiTHii hai tuu chup Your commotion has died down; you sit silently,
pyaare pyaare chehare ne par de diya ishaara but your lovely, lovely face has betrayed you.
dekha terii aa.nkho.n ne hai sapna koii pyaara Your eyes have beheld some lovely dream.
hamse gorii na tuu sharmaa kah de hamse zaraa... Don't shy away from us, beautiful girl; speak to us a little.
in ho.nTHo.n ne maa.nga sargam sargam tuu aur tera hii pyaar hai These lips begged for a melody; it is you and your love.
aa.nkh DHuu.nRHe hai jisko hardam hardam tuu aur tera hii pyaar hai That which these eyes have ceaselessly searched for is you and your love.
mahafil me.n bhii tanha hai dil aise dil aise Even in a crowd, my heart feels lonely, as though
tujhe khona de Darta hai yeh aise yeh aise it fears that it might lose you.
aaj milii aisii khushii jhuum uTHii duniya yeh merii Today I found such happiness that the very world sways and swells.
tumko paaya to paayii zi.ndagii When I found you, I found life.
Chorus
kahna hii kya yeh nain ek anjaan se jo mile What can I say? My glance met with a stranger,
chalne lage muhabbat ke jaise ye silsile and it was as if love's patterns were set into motion.
kahna hii kya What can I say?

 

EK HO GAYE HUM AUR TUM

CHORUS:
ek ho ga'e ham aur tum to uR ga'ii.n nii.nde.n re When you and I became one, our sleep went winging away,
aur khankii paayal mastii me.n to ka.ngan kha.nke re and in pleasure your anklets and bangles clashed.
hamma hamma...
         
ae pahalii baar mile tum pe dam ye nikale Since we first met, I haven't been able to catch my breath.
tum pe yeh jawaanii dhiire dhiire maddham machale re This youth slowly grows fractious for you.
khilii chaa.ndanii jaise yeh badan jaana mila tumko The body you've been granted is like blooming moonlight.
man me.n socha tha jaisa ruup tera aaya nazar hamko The beauty I'd imagined in my mind appeared before me in you.
sitam khulii khulii yeh sanam gorii gorii yeh baahe.n kartii hai yuu.n Your fair, fair beauty wrecks me when you take me in your embrace.
hame.n tumne jab gale lagaaya tab kho hii ga'e ham to When you took me in your arms, I became lost to the world.
hamma hamma...
Chorus
khulii zulf me.n terii aa.nkho.n me.n madhosh ho ga'e I've grown drunk on your flowing locks, in your eyes.
gore gaal pe bhige ho.nTH pe yaara fida ho ga'e I sacrifice myself to your pale cheeks and moist lips.
sanam pyaar me.n bhiigii raat me.n pyaas jagaate rahe Beloved, I thirsted ever more for our love-drenched nights.
khatm na ho sanam pyaar ka mausam chaahate.n baRHtii rahe.n May this season of love, may our desires never cease; may they only keep increasing!
hamma hamma...
Chorus
