12. Rafi's Romantic Song: Rukh Se Zaraa Naqaab Utha Doh


From: MERE HUZOOR (1968)
Lyrics: Hasrat Jaipuri
Music: Shankar-Jaikishen.
English Translation of Mohammad Rafi’s song: RUKH SE ZARA NAQAAB UTHA DOH.



Apne Rukh par Nigaah Karne doh
LET ME SEE YOUR FACE,

Khoobsoorat Gunah Karne doh
LET ME A BEAUTIFUL SIN COMMIT

Rukh se Parda Hataao Jaan-e-Hayaa
UNVEIL YOUR FACE O LIVING MODESTY,

Aaj Dil ko Tabaah Karne doh.
LET THE HEART BE RUINED TODAY.



Rukh se Zara Naqaab Utha doh Mere Huzoor,
UNVEIL THE FACE A LITTLE MY LADY,

Jalwa Phir Ek Baar Dikhaa doh Mere Huzoor
DISPLAY THE SPLENDOUR ONCE AGAIN MY LADY.

Woh Marmari se Haath, Woh Mehkaa hua Badaan
THAT MARBLE-LIKE HAND, THAT FRAGRANT BODY,

Woh Marmari se Haath, Woh Mehkaa hua Badaan
THAT MARBLE-LIKE HAND, THAT FRAGRANT BODY,

Takraaya Mere Dil Se Muhabbat ka Ek Chaman
A GARDEN OF LOVE RAN INTO MY HEART,

Mere bhi Dil ka Phool Khilaa doh Mere Huzoor,
MAKE ALSO MY HEART’S FLOWER BLOOM MY LADY.

Rukh se Zara Naqaab Utha doh Mere Huzoor,
UNVEIL THE FACE A LITTLE MY LADY,

Jalwa Phir Ek Baar Dikhaa doh Mere Huzoor
DISPLAY THE SPLENDOUR ONCE AGAIN MY LADY.


Husn-o-Jamaal Aapka Sheeshey mei.n Dekh kar
ON SEEING YOUR ELEGANT BEAUTY IN THE MIRROR,

Husn-o-Jamaal Aapka Sheeshe mei.n Dekh kar
ON SEEING YOUR ELEGANT BEAUTY IN THE MIRROR,

Madhosh Ho Chukaa mai.n Jalwo.n ki Raah Par
INTOXICATED I’VE BECOME ON THE SPLENDOUROUS PATH

‘Gar Ho Sake toh Hosh mei.n Laa doh Mere Huzoor
IF POSSIBLE, BRING ME BACK TO THE SENSES MY LADY.

Rukh se Zara Naqaab Utha doh Mere Huzoor,
UNVEIL THE FACE A LITTLE MY LADY,

Jalwa Phir Ek Baar Dikhaa doh Mere Huzoor
DISPLAY THE SPLENDOUR ONCE AGAIN MY LADY.


Tum HammSafar Miley ho Mujhe Iss Hayaat mei.n
IN YOU I’VE FOUND A CO-TRAVELLER IN THIS LIFE,

Tum HammSafar Miley ho Mujhe Iss Hayaat mei.n
IN YOU I’VE FOUND A CO-TRAVELLER IN THIS LIFE,

Mil Jaaey Jaise Chaand koi Sooni Raat mei.n
JUST AS ONE FIND’S A MOON ON A LONELY NIGHT,

Jaaogey Ab Kahaan Yeh Bataa doh Mere Huzoor
WHERE’LL YOU NOW GO, LET ME KNOW MY LADY.


Rukh se Zara Naqaab Utha doh Mere Huzoor,
UNVEIL THE FACE A LITTLE MY LADY,

Jalwa Phir Ek Baar Dikhaa doh Mere Huzoor
DISPLAY THE SPLENDOUR ONCE AGAIN MY LADY.

NASIR.
