136. Translation of Sad Songs of Rafi: Dekhi Zamaane ki Yaari...


Movie: KAAGHAZ KE PHOOL (1959)
Music Director: S D Burman
Lyricist: Kaifi Azmi


Most friendship is mere folly sings Rafi Sahaab: Dekhee Zamaane ki Yaari...

Roman Transliteration/English Translation of the original lyrics:




PART I

Dekhee, zamaane kee yaari,
HAVE SEEN THE FRIENDSHIP OF THE PEOPLE,

bichha.de sabhee,
ALL DEPARTED ..

bichha.de sabhee baaree baaree
ALL DEPARTED TURN BY TURN,

arre dekhee, zamaane kee yaari,
OH I’VE SEEN THE FRIENDSHIP OF THE PEOPLE,

bichha.de sabhee baaree baaree,
ALL DEPARTED TURN BY TURN,


kyaa le ke mile.n, ab duniyaa se,
WHAT TO CARRY NOW FOR MEETING THE PEOPLE,

aa.nsuuo ke sivaa, kuchh paas nahi.n,
BESIDES THE TEARS NOTHING ELSE REMAINS,

yaa phool hee, phool the daaman me.n,
EITHER THERE WERE FLOWERS IN THE LAP

yaa kaa.nTo.n kee bhee aas nahi.n,
OR THERE WAS NO HOPING EVEN FOR THE THORNS,

matlab kee duniyaa hai saaree,
THE ENTIRE WORLD IS MEAN,

bichha.de sabhee ,
ALL DEPARTED,

bichha.de sabhee baaree baaree,
ALL DEPARTED TURN BY TURN

arre dekhee, zamaane kee yaari,
OH I’VE SEEN THE FRIENDSHIP OF THE PEOPLE,

bichha.de, sabhee baaree baaree
ALL DEPARTED TURN BY TURN,

bichha.de, sabhee baaree baaree
ALL DEPARTED TURN BY TURN,

NASIR.
