Roman Transliteration/English Translation of the Hindi-Urdu Lyrics:

baar baar dekho,
LOOK AGAIN AND AGAIN,

hazaar baar dekho,
LOOK A THOUSAND TIMES,

ke dekhne kee cheez hai, hamaaraa dil-rubaa,
FOR MY SWEETHEART IS A THING WORTH LOOKING,

Tallyho

Tallyho, Tallyho,

o baar baar dekho,
O LOOK AGAIN AND AGAIN,

hazaar baar dekho,
LOOK A THOUSAND TIMES,

ke dekhne kee cheez hai, hamaaraa dil-rubaa,
FOR MY SWEETHEART IS A THING WORTH LOOKING,

Tallyho

Tallyho, Tallyho…

haaN jee haaN,
YES, OF COURSE,

aur bhee honge dil-daar yahaaN,
MORE HEARTTHROBS MIGHT ALSO BE HERE,

laakhoN diloN kee bahaar yahaaN,
DELIGHTS OF A MILLION HEARTS HERE,

par ye baat kahaaN haay
OH, BUT NOTHING OF THIS KIND!

haaN jee haaN,
YES, OF COURSE,

aur bhee honge diladaar yahaaN,
MORE HEARTTHROBS MIGHT ALSO BE HERE,

laakhoN diloN kee bahaar yahaaN,
DELIGHTS OF A MILLION HEARTS HERE,

par ye baat kahaaN,
BUT NOTHING OF THIS KIND,

ye be-misaal husn laa-jawaab yeh aadaa
THIS INCOMPARABLE BEAUTY, MATCHLESS ELEGANCE!

Tallyho,

Tallyho, Tallyho,

baar baar dekho,
LOOK AGAIN AND AGAIN,

hazaar baar dekho,
LOOK A THOUSAND TIMES,

ke dekhne kee cheez hai, hamaaraa dil-rubaa
FOR MY SWEETHEART IS A THING WORTH LOOKING,

Tallyho,

Tallyho, Tallyho….

dil milaa,
MET A BELOVED,

ek jaan-e-mehfil milaa,
FOUND THE LIFE OF THE PARTY,

yaa chiraaG-e-manzil milaa,
OR FOUND THE DESTINATION’S LAMP,

yeh naa poochho ke kahaaN
DON’T ASK ME WHERE!

dil milaa,

DON’T ASK WHERE!

nayaa nayaa ye aashiqee kaa raaz hai meraa
‘TIS MY NEWEST LOVE SECRET!

Tallyho,

Tallyho, Tallyho,
