Music: Shankar-Jaikishen
Lyrics: Shailendra


One of the ever-popular numbers of Rafi Sahaab: Yaad Na Jaaye...

Roman Transliteration/English Translation of the original lyrics:





yaad na jaaye
MEMORY WON’T GO AWAY

beete dino.n ki
OF THE DAYS GONE-BY,

jaake na aaye jo din,
THOSE DAYS, THAT PASS AWAY NEVER TO RETURN,

Dil kyoo.n bulaae unhe.n,
WHY DOES THE HEART EVOKE THEM?

dil kyoo.n bulaae,
WHY DOES THE HEART EVOKE...

yaad na jaaye,
MEMORY WON’T GO AWAY...

beete dino.n ki
OF THE DAYS GONE-BY,

jaake na aaye jo din,
THOSE DAYS, THAT PASS AWAY NEVER TO RETURN,

Dil kyoo.n bulaae unhe.n,
WHY DOES THE HEART EVOKE THEM?

dil kyoo.n bulaae,
WHY DOES THE HEART EVOKE...


din jo pakheroo hote
IF ONLY THE DAYS WERE WINGED BIRDS,

pinjre me.n mai.n rakh letaa
IN A CAGE I WOULD PUT THEM,

din jo pakheroo hote,
IF ONLY THE DAYS WERE WINGED BIRDS,

pinjre me.n mai.n rakh letaa
IN A CAGE I WOULD PUT THEM,


paaltaa un ko jatan se,
REARING THEM WITH DILIGENCE,

paaltaa un ko jatan se,
REARING THEM WITH DILIGENCE,

motee ke daane detaa,
FEEDING THEM WITH PEARLY GRAINS,

seene se rehtaa lagaaye,
KEEPING THEM CLOSE TO THE BOSOM.


yaad na jaaye,
MEMORY WON’T GO AWAY...

beete dino.n ki
OF THE DAYS GONE-BY,

jaake na aaye jo din,
THOSE DAYS, THAT PASS AWAY NEVER TO RETURN,

Dil kyoo.n bulaae unhe.n,
WHY DOES THE HEART EVOKE THEM?

dil kyoo.n bulaae,
WHY DOES THE HEART EVOKE...


tasveer un ki chhupaake,
PICTURE OF HERS I MAY HIDE,

rakh doo.n jahaa.n jee chaahe,
KEEPING IT WHEREVER I PLEASE,

tasveer un ki chhupaake,
PICTURE OF HERS I MAY HIDE,

rakh doo.n jahaa.n jee chaahe,
KEEPING IT WHEREVER I PLEASE,

mann me.n basee yeh moorat
THIS IMAGE, DWELLING IN THE MIND...

mann me.n basee yeh moorat,
THIS IMAGE, DWELLING IN THE MIND,

lekin miTe na miTaaye
HOWEVER WON’T EFFACE WITH EFFACING,

kehne ko hai.n voh paraaye,
THOUGH, TO SPEAK, SHE BELONGS TO ANOTHER.


yaad na jaaye,
MEMORY WON’T GO AWAY...

beete dino.n ki
OF THE DAYS GONE-BY,

jaake na aaye jo din,
THOSE DAYS, THAT PASS AWAY NEVER TO RETURN,

Dil kyoo.n bulaae unhe.n,
WHY DOES THE HEART EVOKE THEM?

dil kyoo.n bulaae,
WHY DOES THE HEART EVOKE...

yaad na jaaye,
MEMORY WON’T GO AWAY...

beete dino.n ki
OF THE DAYS GONE-BY.

Some people come into our lives
and leave footprints on our hearts
and we are never ever the same.
