Aa lag jaa gale dilrubaa,
COME,  EMBRACE ME, O HEART STEALER!
 
Aa lag jaa gale dilrubaa,
COME, EMBRACE ME, O HEART STEALER!
 
kahaaN  rooTh ke chalee,  O gulaab kee kalee, 
WHERE ARE YOU OFF TO SULKING, O ROSE-BUD!
 
tere QadmoN  meN  dil hai meraa –
BENEATH YOUR STEPS LIES MY HEART!
 
lag jaa gale dilrubaa…
EMBRACE ME,  O HEART STEALER….
 
O sholaa badan O zohraa jabeeN, 
O HOTTY, O VENUSIAN BEAUTY, 
 
tum Ghusse meN lagtee ho aur haseeN,
WHEN IRKED, YOU LOOK MORE COMELY, 
 
baithaa hooN jigar ko thaame huwe,
HERE I SIT CLUTCHING AT MY HEART, 
 
mujh pe naa gire yeh bijlee kaheeN,
LEST THIS LIGHTNING STRIKES ME, 
 
Itna naa sitam karnaa, 
PRAY DON’T OPPRESS ME SO, 
 
kuchh nazre karam karnaa,
WITH SOME FAVOUR, LOOK UPON ME, 
 
dekhiye dil hai Naazuk meraa,
LOOK, MY HEART’S FRAGILE!
 
lag jaa gale dilrubaa…
EMBRACE ME, O HEART STEALER!
 
Aa lag jaa gale dilrubaa,
COME, EMBRACE ME, O HEART STEALER!
 
kahaaN  rooTh ke chalee,  O gulaab kee kalee,
WHERE ARE YOU OFF TO SULKING, O ROSE-BUD!
 
tere QadmoN  meN  dil hai meraa –
BENEATH YOUR STEPS LIES MY HEART!
 
lag jaa gale dilrubaa…
EMBRACE ME,  O HEART STEALER….
 
itraa ke naa chal, 
DON’T STRUT ALONG,
 
bal khaa ke naa chal, 
DON’T WALK COILED WITH RAGE,
 
aaNchal ko hawaa meN uRaa ke naa chal, 
DON’T TREAD FLUTTERING THE VEIL IN THE AIR,
 
itraa ke naa chal 
DON’T STRUT ALONG,
 
bal khaa ke naa chal
DON’T WALK COILED WITH RAGE,
 
aaNchal ko hawaa meN uRaa ke naa chal, 
DON’T TREAD FLUTTERING THE VEIL IN THE AIR,
 
ban jaayegaa Koyee afsaanaa,
SOME STORY WILL CROP UP,
 
dil ko mere taRpaa ke naa chal,
DON’T WALK AWAY AGITATING MY HEART,
 
kyaa kehne nazaakat ke,
WHAT TO SPEAK OF YOUR TENDERNESS!
 
saamaaN haiN  Qayaamat ke, 
ASSETS ARE TREMENDOUS,
 
main toh pehlee nazar meN luTaa,
I GOT WAYLAID AT THE FIRST GLANCE!
 
lag jaa gale dilrubaa…
EMBRACE ME, O HEART STEALER!
 
Aa lag jaa gale dilrubaa,
COME, EMBRACE ME, O HEART STEALER!
 
kahaaN  rooTh ke chalee,  O gulaab kee kalee,
WHERE ARE YOU OFF TO SULKING, O ROSE-BUD!
 
tere QadmoN  meN  dil hai meraa,
BENEATH YOUR STEPS LIES MY HEART!
 
lag jaa gale dilrubaa…
EMBRACE ME,  O HEART STEALER….
 
naa ishq hameN hai duniya se,
I CRAVE NOT FOR THE WORLD,
 
naa pyaar hameN hai daulat se,
‘TIS NOT THE WEALTH THAT I LOVE, 
 
hamm ko toh muhabbat hai zaalim, 
O UNRELENTING SWEETHEART! I’VE LOVE
 
teree bholee bhaalee soorat se,
FOR YOUR SWEET, INNOCENT FACE! 
 
palkoN pe biThaa loongaa,
I’LL CHERISH YOU,
 
seene meN chhupaa loongaa, 
IN MY BOSOM I’LL CONCEAL YOU,
 
main hooN kab se deewaanaa teraa, 
FOR LONG I’VE BEEN CRAZY ABOUT YOU!
 
lag Jaa gale dilrubaa, 
EMBRACE ME O HEART STEALER..
 
Aa lag jaa gale dilrubaa,
COME, EMBRACE ME, O HEART STEALER!
 
kahaaN  rooTh ke chalee,  O gulaab kee kalee,
WHERE ARE YOU OFF TO SULKING, O ROSE-BUD!
 
tere QadmoN  meN  dil hai meraa –
BENEATH YOUR STEPS LIES MY HEART!
 
lag jaa gale dilrubaa…
EMBRACE ME,  O HEART STEALER….
