Rafi’s Romantic Song: aaj kei raat baRii shoKH baRii naTkhaT hai…
Roman Transliteration/English Translation of the filmy lyrics:

AAJ KII RAAT, BARII SHOKH BARII, NATKHAT HAI,
PLAYFUL AND NAUGHTY IS THE NIGHT TONIGHT,

AAJ TOH TERE BINAA, NEEND NAHIIN AAYEGII,
WITHOUT YOU, THE SLEEP WILL EVADE ME TONIGHT!

AB TOH TERE HII YAHAAN AANE KAA YEH MAUSAM HAI,
AS SUCH, IT’S TIME FOR YOU NOW TO COME OVER HERE,

AB TAB’IIYAT NAA KHAYALON SE BAHAL PAAYEGII…
MY NATUURE NOW WON’T BE AMUSED BY FANCIES!

DEKH WOH CHHAT PE UTAR AAYII HAI SAAWAN KII GHATAA
LOOK, THE RAINY CLOUD HAS DESCENDED ON THE ROOF,

DE RAHII DWAAR PE, AAWAAZ KHARII PURWAAYII,
THE EASTERLY WIND KNOCKS ON THE DOOR,

BIJLII REH REH KE, PAHAARON PE CHAMAK UTHTII HAI,
THE LIGHTNING FLASHES INTERMITTENTLY ON THE HILLS,

SOONII ANKHON MEN KOI, KHWAAB LE JO ANGRAAYII,
AS IF SOME DREAM STIRRING UP IN THE VOID EYES,

KAISE SAMJHAAUN, KAISE SAMJHAAUN KE IS, WAQT KAA MATLAB KYAA HAI,
HOW DO I EXPLAIN WHAT THIS MOMENT MEANS,

DIL KII HAI BAAT, HO DIL KII HAI BAAT NAA HOTHON SE KAHII, JAAYEGII, HMMMM
‘TIS THE MATTER OF HEART; THE LIPS ARE SEALED

AAJ KII RAAT….
TONIGHT!

YEH BHATAKTE HUYE JUGNU YEH DIYE AWAARAA,
THESE WANDERING FIRE-FLIES –THESE VAGRANT LAMPS

BHEEGTE PER PE, BUJH BUJH KE CHAMAK UTHTE HAIN,
FLICKERING ON THE SOAKENG TREES!

TERE AANCHAL MEN TAKAY SALME SITAREY JAISE,
THE STAR-LIKE MIRRORS EMBROIDERED ON YOUR STOLE

MUJH SE MILNE KO BINAA, BAAT DAMAK UTHTE HAIN,
FLARE UP WITHOUT REASON IN ORDER TO MEET ME!

SAARA AALAM, SAARA AALAM HAI GIRIFTAAR TERE, HUSN MEN JAB,
WHEN THE ENTIRE WORLD IS CAPTURED BY YOUR BEAUTY

MUJH SE HII KAISE, HAAY MUJH SE HII KAISE YEH BARSAAT SAHEE, JAAYEGII, HMMM
HOW THEN WILL I ALONE SURVIVE THIS DOWNPOUR

AAJ KE RAAT…
TONIGHT!

RAAT RAANI KII YEH BHEENII SI NASHILEE KHUSHBOO,
THIS MILD, INTOXICATING FRAGRANCE OF NIGHT-JASMINE*

AA RAHI HAI KE JO, CHHAN CHHAN KE GHANI DAALON SE,
THAT’S FILTERIING THROUGH THE BUSHY BRANCHES,

AISAA LAGTAA HAI , KISII DHEET JHAKORE SE LIPAT,
ENTWINED WITH A STUUBBORN BREEZE, IT SEEMS AS IF

KHEL AAYII HAI TERE, ULJHE HUWE BAALON SE,
IT’S PLAYED WITH YOUR TANGLED TRESSES!

AUR BEZAAR, AUR BEZAAR NA KAR, MERE TARAP-TE DIL KO,
AND DON’T BUG MY TORMENTED HEART MORE,

AISII RANGIIN, HO AISII RANGIIN GHAZAL RAAT NA PHIR, GAAYEGII,
NEVER AGAIN THE NIGHT SHALL SING SUCH A SPLENDID ODE!

AAJ TOH TERE BINAA NEEND NAHIIN AAYEGII,
WITHOUT YOU, THE SLEEP WILL EVADE ME TONIGHT!

AAJ KEI RAAT BARII SHOKH BARII NATKHAT HAI,
PLAYFUL AND NAUGHTY IS THE NIGHT TONIGHT!

Rafi’s Peppy Song: O phirkee waalee tuu kal phir aanaa…
Roman Transliteration/English Translation of Hindi-Urdu filmy Lyrics:

[Note: here “Windmill” refers to a child’s toy.]

O phirkee waalee, tuu kal phir aanaa,
O WINDMILL-SELLER, COME AGAIN TOMORROW,

naheeN phir jaanaa, tuu apnee zubaan se,
DON’T GO BACK ON YOUR PROMISE

ke tere nainaa haiN jaraa be-imaan se,
AS YOUR EYES ARE A BIT FAITHLESS!

Matwaalee, yeh dil kyooN toRaa,
O LUSTY LASS, WHY YOU BREAK THIS HEART,

ye teer kaahe chhoRaa,
WHY LET LOSE THIS ARROW

najar kee kamaan se,
FROM THE GLANCE’S BOW?

ke mar jaauNgaa maiN bas muskaan se…
AS I’LL DIE JUST BY YOUR SMILE!

pehle bhee toone, ik roz yeh kahaa thaa
ONE DAY, EVEN BEFORE YOU’D SAID THIS…

pehle bhee toone, ik roz yeh kahaa thaa,
ONE DAY, EVEN BEFORE YOU HAD SAID THIS:

AaooNgi tuu naa aayee,
“I’LL COME”, YOU DIDN’T!

waadaa kiyaa thaa, saiNyaa bann ke badariyaa,
YOU’D PROMISED, “HONEY, I’LL BECOME A CLOUD

chhaauNgi tuu naa chhaayee,
LADEN WITH RAIN,” BUT YOU DIDN’T!

mere pyaase…
MY CRAVING…

mere pyaase nainaa tarse,
MY CRAVING EYES YEARNED,

tuu niklee naa ghar se,
YOU DIDN’T COME OUTTA YOUR HOME!

kaise beetee, woh raat suhaanee,
HOW I MISSED THAT PLEASANT NIGHT

tuu sun le kahaanee, yeh saare jahaan se,
HEAR THE STORY FROM THIS ENTIRE WORLD,

ke tere nainaa haiN zaraa be-imaan se,
AS YOUR EYES ARE A BIT FAITHLESS!

O phirkee waalee, tuu kal phir aanaa,
O WINDMILL-SELLER, COME AGAIN TOMORROW,

naheeN phir jaanaa, tuu apnee zubaan se,
DON’T GO BACK ON YOUR PROMISE

ke tere nainaa haiN jaraa be-imaan se,
AS YOUR EYES ARE A BIT FAITHLESS!

sochaa thaa maine, kisee roz goree haNs ke
I’D AN IDEA THAT HAPPILY SOME DAY THE FAIR BELLE…

sochaa thaa maine, kisee roz goree haNs ke,
I’D AN IDEA THAT HAPPILY SOME DAY THE FAIR BELLE

bolegee tuu naa bolee,
WOULD SPEAK, BUT YOU DIDN’T!

meree mohabbat bharee baateN sun-sun ke,
BY LISTENING TO MY LOVING WORDS

Dolegee tuu naa Dolee,
YOU WILL GO A-ROVING, BUT YOU DIDN’T!

o sapnoN meN…
IN MY DREAMS….

o sapnoN meN aane waalee,
O INTRUDER OF MY DREAMS

ruk jaa jaane waalee
TARRY, BEFORE YOU LEAVE,

kiyaa tuune, meraa dil choree,
YOU ROBBED ME OF MY HEART,

yeh poochh le goree, zameeN aasmaan se,
QUIZ THE EARTH AND HEAVEN, O FAIR BELLE,

ke tere nainaa haiN jaraa be-imaan se,
AS YOUR EYES ARE A BIT FAITHLESS!

O phirkee waalee, tuu kal phir aanaa,
O WINDMILL-SELLER, COME AGAIN TOMORROW,

naheeN phir jaanaa, tuu apnee zubaan se,
DON’T GO BACK ON YOUR PROMISE

ke tere nainaa haiN jaraa be-imaan se,
AS YOUR EYES ARE A BIT FAITHLESS,

ke tere nainaa haiN jaraa be-imaan se.
AS YOUR EYES ARE A BIT FAITHLESS!
