Thanks to Nisha!

dil ne bahut roka mai.n ne bahut Toka... My heart challenged me; I tried so hard to check it;
pyaar na maana mera pyaar na maana but my love (for you) wouldn't obey, my love wouldn't obey.
terii zi.ndagii me.n chalii aa'ii chalii aa'ii I came, I came into your life.
dil ko kyo.n roka khud ko kyo.n Toka Why did you restrain your heart? Why did you try to check it?
pyaar na maana tera pyaar na maana Your love wouldn't obey; your love wouldn't obey.

aa'o saarii duniya ko bhuu le Come, forget the whole world.

diiwaane hokar bahake Going crazy with love, we stagger
aa'o na bahake Come, stagger!
ho mastii sii chhaa'ii hai Some pleasurable intoxication has spread through us;
kuchh leke aa'ii hai It's taken something as it's come.
pyaara pyaara pyaara samaa.n What a lovely, lovely, lovely moment!
mai.n bhii yahaa.n tuu bhii yahaa.n

I'm here, and so are you;

prem hii prem harSHo Take delight in love upon love.
aaj tumhe.n kuchh kah duu.n Today I'll tell you something.

aaj tumhe.n de duu.n Today I'll give something away to you.
chorii se de do Give it to me in secret.

mai.n bhii yahaa.n tuu bhii yahaa.n

I'm here, and so are you;

prem hii prem harSHo Take delight in love upon love.

 

BANI BANI

Prem is the name of the hero. The word also means love, which is how it has been translated below.
However, the double meaning is intentional, and should be remembered as you
read the translation; it gives the lyrics a nice twist.

AUR MOHABBAT HAI

Thanks to Nisha!

tuu hii to mere paas hai You are near me ['you' emphasized by 'hii to'],
phir yeh kaisii pyaas hai so what sort of thirst is this? [pyaas can also mean 'desire']
yeh kaisa ahasaas hai What sort of feeling is this?
koii bataa de mujhe Won't someone tell me?
aaj mai.n huu.n aur tum ho Today it's just you and me,
aur muhabbat hai... and love...
mai.n bhii gum huu.n tum bhii gum ho hai yeh chaahat I'm lost, and you're lost too: this is desire.
haa.n yeh chaahat hai aur muhabbat hai Yes, this is desire, and it's love.
yeh kaise mumkin hai tumko kisii ne ab tak pyaar na kiya How is it possible that, until now, you'd never fallen in love with someone?
mai.n kaise yeh maanuu.n tumko ab tak dil na diya How can I believe that you'd never before given away your heart?
kaisii hai yeh uljhan What kind of tangle is this?
dil yeh lagaa sochne My heart began to wonder about it.
tez hai kyo.n dhaDkan Why are my heartbeats so rapid?
koii bataa de mujhe Won't someone tell me?
aaj mai.n huu.n aur tum ho Today it's just you and me,
aur muhabbat hai... and love...
jo tumse kahana tha mai.n ne kahaa na What I wanted to tell you, I couldn't;
lab par baat hai ruukii the words hesitated on my lips.
lagta hai yeh aksar mere li'e hii shaayad tuu hai banii It often seems to me that perhaps you've been made for me alone.
kaisa etbaar hai What sort of faith is that?
kaisa i.ntazaar hai What sort of wait is this?
kyo.n tumse itna pyaar hai Why do I love you so much?
koii bataa de mujhe Won't someone tell me?
aaj mai.n huu.n aur tum ho Today it's just you and me,
aur muhabbat hai... and love...
mai.n bhii gum huu.n tum bhii gum ho hai yeh chaahat I'm lost, and you're lost too: this is desire.
haa.n yeh chaahat hai aur muhabbat hai Yes, this is desire, and it's love.

 

O AJNABEE

o ajnabii mere ajnabii Oh stranger, my stranger,
na jaane aaye tum kahaa.n se who knows where you came from,
itna pyaara laaye tum kahaa.n se whence you've brought so much loveliness.
yeh raat bhii hai sajii sajii Even this night is adorned (by you).
o ajnabii mere ajnabii Oh stranger, my stranger.
dilwaale dekho phir mile hai Look at your lover; we've met again;
mile hai we've met.
jaane kahaa.n ham chale hai.n Who knows where we've gone to.
chale hai.n We've gone.
nazaro.n se nazare.n milii hai.n Our eyes met;
ho.nTHo.n se ho.nTH sile hai.n our lips joined.
ek aag sii hai dabii dabii It's like a banked fire.
o ajnabii mere ajnabii O stranger, my stranger.
pyaar ka mausam aata hai The season of love comes,
aata hai ek baar it comes once.
dil diya jaata hai The heart is given away,
ek baar ek baar once, once only.
jawaan jawaan dil kii dhaRkan me.n In the beating of the young heart,
koii samaata hai something spreads and takes hold,
koii samaata hai ek baar ek baar something spreads and takes hold only once, once alone.
o mujhe kya hu'aa mai.n uRne lagaa Oh, what happened to me? I've started to soar;
o ajnabii mere ajnabii oh stranger, my stranger.
ajnabii terii dil churaane aaya hai The stranger has come to steal your heart;
ajnabii nii.nde.n uRaane aaya hai the stranger has come to send your sleep winging away.
luuTnewaala chain kahaa.n paa'ega Where will a thief find peace?
luuTnewaala khud luuTke jaa'ega A thief, having stolen, will steal away [leave].
jaa'ega kahaa.n jiyega yahaa.n marega yahaa.n Where will he go? He'll live here, he'll die here.
yeh ajnabii tera ajnabii tera ajnabii This stranger is your stranger, your stranger.
na jaane aaye tum kahaa.n se Who knows where you've come from.
itna pyaara laaye tum kahaa.n se whence you've brought such loveliness.
                
PART TWO
o ajnabii mere ajnabii Oh stranger, my stranger,
na jaane tum kahaa.n chale gaye ho who knows where you've gone off to.
yaad mujhe tum kitna aa rahe ho How many memories of you come to me.
suunii sii hai dil kii galii The lanes of my heart seem deserted.
o ajnabii mere ajnabii Oh stranger, my stranger,
tere pyaar kii nishaaniyaa.n The tokens of your love
ban ga'ii kahaaniyaa.n have become stories.
phir se muhabbat phir kaise mai.n pyaar karuu.n Love again? How could I fall in love again?
phir se vafaa ka kaise mai.n ikraar karuu.n Faith, once more? How could I promise to be faithful?
tere pyaar me.n mai.n to DHalii In my love for you, I have drawn to an end.
o ajnabii mere ajnabii Oh stranger, my stranger,
kis se kahuu.n pareshaaniya to whom can I confide my anxiety?
dil pe kar jaa maharbaaniya Take pity on my heart.
pal jo biite to la.mbii judaa'ii hu'ii The moments which passed were such long separations.
ek ek pal me.n to paraayii huu.n In one single moment, I've become a stranger.
aakar mujhe le jaa abhii Come to me, take me away, right now.
o ajnabii mere ajnabii... Oh stranger, my stranger...
