PARDESI PARDESI

mai.n ye nahii.n kahatii ki pyaar mat karna I won't tell you not to love
kisii musaafir ka magar etabaar mat karna some traveller, but don't trust one.
   
Chorus:  
pardesii pardesii jaana nahi.n mujhe chhoDke Foreigner, foreigner, don't go and leave me.
pardesii mere yaara, vaada nibhaana Foreigner, my friend, keep your promise!
mujhe yaad rakhna kahii.n bhuul na jaana Remember me, don't forget somehow!
   
mai.n ne tum ko chaaha tumse pyaar kiya I desired you, I fell in love with you.
sub kuchh tum pe yaar apna vaar diya I offered you everything I have, my friend.
ban gaii jogan, mai.n ne priit ka jog liya I became a (female) ascetic, I undertook the disciplines of love.
na socha na samjha, dil ka rog liya I neither thought nor understood; I contracted an illness of the heart.
pardesii mere yaara lauT ke aana Foreigner, my friend, return!
Tum yaad rakhna, kahii.n bhuul na jaana Remember me, don't forget somehow!
Chorus  
har phal merii yaad tumhe.n taDapaa'egi Every moment the memory of me will make you toss and turn.
mai.n jaguu.nga nii.nd tumhe.n na aa'egii I'll stay awake, and sleep will not come to you.
chhoD ke aise haal me.n jo tum jaa'oge Such is the state you will go and leave us in!
sach kahata huu.n jaan bahut pachhtaa'oge I speak the truth, love; you will regret it greatly.
pardesii mere yaara, mujhe na rulaana Foreigner, my friend, don't make me cry!
tum yaad rakhna kahii.n bhuul na jaana Remember me, don't forget somehow!
Chorus  
pardesi mere yaara vaada nibhana Foreigner, my friend, keep your promise - 
mujhe yaad rakhna kahii.n bhuul na jaana remember me, don't somehow forget!

PUCHHO JARA PUCHHO

Chorus:  
puchho zara puchho mujhe kya hua hai Ask, just ask, what has happened to me!
kaisii bekaraarii hai yeh, kaisa nasha hai What sort of uneasiness this is, what sort of intoxication?
tumse dil lagaane kii saza hai It's punishment for falling in love with you!
raajaajii tumse dil lagane kii saza hai Raajaajii, it's punishment for falling in love with you!
   
rutha hai kyo.n Raaja , kyo.n mujhse khaphaa hai Why is Raja sulking, why is he mad at me?
kaisi berukhii hai, mere dil ko pata hai What kind of displeasure is this? My heart knows the answer:
tumse dil lagane kii saza hai it's the punishment for falling in love with you!
kaa.nTe ho.n ya kaliyaa.n ho.n Whether there be thorns or flower buds,
bas mahabuub kii galiyaa.n ho.n they're still the lanes of love.
saath tumahaare chalna hai, ishq kii aag me.n jalna hai I must walk with you, and burn in the fire of passion.
chiir ke dekho dil mera Cut open my heart and take a look - 
is dil ka hai naam tera this heart bears your name.
diivaanagii kya chiiz hai diivaano.n ko bas hai pata Only the love-crazed know what madness truly is.
Chorus  
chhoDke tumko kidhar jaa'e.n Where shall I go once I leave you?
ham to tere bin mar jaa'e.n I will die without you!
jii karta kuchh kar jaa'e.n I long to do something before I go - 
pyaar me.n had se guzar jaa'e.n in love I shall surpass the limitations (of this life).
ham voh nahi.n jo Dar jaa'e.n I am not someone who gets afraid; 
vaada kar ke mukar jaa'e.n who, having made a promise, might go back on it.
is pyaar ka, takaraar ka, chaahat ka, hai apna maza This love, this struggle, this desire, is its own reward.
Chorus  

AAYE HO MERI ZINDAGI

Chorus:  
aa'e ho merii zindagii me.n tum bahaar ban ke You have come into my life like the spring.
mere dil me.n yuu.n hii rahana Forever remain in my heart like this!
mere dil me.n yuu.n hii rahana tum pyaar pyaar ban ke Having become love, love itself, forever remain in my heart!
   
aankho.n me.n tum base ho sapne hazaar ban ke You are settled into my eyes, (the answer to) a thousand dreams.
mere dil me.n yuu.n hii rahana tum pyaar pyaar banke Forever remain in my heart, having become love, love itself.
Chorus  
mere saathii, mere saajan, mere saath yuu.n hii chalna My friend, my lover, walk beside me forever!
badalega ra.ng zamaana par tum nahii.n badalna Even if the very colors of the earth were to change, don't (you) change at all.
meri maa.ng yuu.n hii bharna, taare hazaar ban ke Fill the parting of my hair (with dye, to indicate she is now married) like this, like a thousand stars.
mere dil me.n yuu.n hii rahana tum pyaar pyaar banke Having become love, love itself, forever remain in my heart!
Chorus  
agar mai.n jo ruth jauu.n to tum mujhe manaana If I should fall into a sulk, then console me.
thaama hai hath mera, phir umar bhii bhar nibhaana You grabbed my hand, so keep it for your whole life.
mujhe choD ke na jaana vaade hazaar karke Don't leave me after the thousand promises you've made.
mere dil me.n yuu.n hii rahana tum pyaar pyaar banke Having become love, love itself, remain in my heart forever!
Chorus  
mere dil me.n yuu.n hii rahana tum pyaar pyaar banke Having become love, love itself, forever remain in my heart!

na shokh thii havaae.n, na khushbuu man chalii thii and the winds were neither lively nor fragrant. 
aaya hai ab ke mausam kaisa khumar banke Now what an intoxicating season has come upon us!
mere dil me.n yuu.n hii rahana tum pyaar pyaar banke Forever remain in my heart, having become love, love itself! 
aaye ho mere zi.ndagii me.n tum bahaar banke You have come into my life like the spring.
man ka nagar tha khaalii, suukhii paDii thii Dalii  The city of my spirit was empty: the branches lay dry and withered,
holi ke rang phike, benuur thii Diiwaalii  the colors of Holi (a religious holiday in which the participants throw brightly colored paints at each other) faded, Diwali (the festival of lights) was lightless.
rimjhim baras paDe ho tum to phuhaar ban ke  You became the rain, and pattered down...
mere dil me.n yuu.n hii rahana tum pyaar pyaar banke  Remain forever in my heart, having become love, love itself! 
aaye ho mere zi.ndagii me.n tum bahaar banke  You have come into my life like the spring;

TERE ISHQ MEIN NACHENGE

Chorus:
uuf kya raat aa'ii hai , muhabbat rang laa'ii hai Oh, what a night has arrived!  Love has brought it color... 
 
ham jashan manaae.nge, saagar chhalkaa'e.nge We will celebrate, we will make our wine cups overflow,
na hosh me.n aa'e.Nge we will not keep our wits about us!
tere ishq me.n naache.nge  We will dance around in your love.
jhuume.nge gaaye.nge, ham dhol bajaae.nge  We'll stagger, we'll sing, we'll play the drums;
tere ishq me.n naache.nge we'll dance around in your love! 
Chorus
tuu ne taD(a)paaya hai, tujhko taD(a)paa'e.nge, tujhko taD(a)paa'e.nge You have tormented me, so I will torment you, I will torment you!

Chorus 
gaalo.n kii laalii hai tere li'e The redness of his cheeks is for you, 
hoTHo.n kii pyaalii hai tere li'e his lips' thirst is for you. 
dil chahi'e, dilruba chahi'e  Do you want a heart, or do you want a pretty lover?
itna bataa tujhko kya chahi'e  Tell us that much: what is it that you want?
ye hasne ki jaagire.n ham tujhpe luta'e.nge We will squander these envied estates upon you;
tujhe dil me.n basaa'e.nge, tere ishq me.n naache.nge we will take you into our hearts, we will dance around in your love!
Chorus 
terii tijoDii ka sona nahii.n, dil hai hamaara khilauna nahii.n I'm not your golden loot, my heart is not a toy!
kaise khariidoge tum pyaar me.n  How are you going to buy love? 
bikte nahii.n dil ye baazaar me.n Hearts aren't sold in the marketplace!
vo chiiz nahii.n hai.n ham jo yuu.n bik jaae.nge I'm not something that can be sold! 
ham to Takaraa'enge I'll have this out with you.
Chorus 
ai! kahaa.n se aayaa hai tuu?  Hey, where did you come from?
ham ko lagta paraaya hai tuu You seem like a stranger to me.
apno.n ki mahafil begaane ham  Amidst my own family, I am an outsider.
sab ki asaliyat ko pahachaanne hum  I see the whole truth now.
pathar ki muurat se TakDa gaye  I collided with a statue of stone - 
achchha hua hosh me.n aa gaye a good thing that I regained my senses! 
auqaat kisii kii kya ham sab ko bataa'e.nge ab na sharmaa'e.nge I'll tell everyone what's really going on here; I won't be ashamed to do it!
Chorus
