Movie: CHA,CHA, CHA (1964)
Lyrics: Neeraj
Music: Iqbal Qureshi


Rafi Sahaab's popular number: Voh Hamm Na Theh...

Roman Transliteration/English Translation of the original number:



voh hamm na theh, voh tum na theh,
THAT WAS NOT ME, THAT WAS NOT YOU,

voh hamm na theh, voh tum na theh,
THAT WAS NOT ME, THAT WAS NOT YOU,

voh rehguzar theeh pyaar kee,
THAT WAS THE PATH OF LOVE

lutee jahaa.n pe bevajaah, paalkee, bahaar kee,
WHERE BLOOMING PALANQUIN GOT LOOTED WANTONLY,

paalkee bahaar kee
THE BLOOMING PALANQUIN,

voh hamm na theh, voh tum na theh.
THAT WAS NOT ME, THAT WAS NOT YOU...


yeh khel thaah naseeb kaa
THIS WAS THE GAME OF FATE,

yeh khel thaah naseeb kaa
THIS WAS THE GAME OF FATE,

na ha.ns sakke, na ro sakke,
WE COULD NEITHER LAUGH NOR CRY,

na toor par, pahu.nch sake,
NOR COULD WE REACH THE SUMMIT OF MOUNT SINAI,

na daar par hee so sakke,
NOR COULD WE SLEEP AT THE GALLOWS,

kahaanee kis se yeh kahe.n,
WHOM TO RELATE THIS STORY...

Kahaanee kis se yeh kahe.n, utaar kee, cha.daav ki utaar ki,
WHOM TO RELATE THIS STORY OF VICISSITUDES,

lutee jahaa.n pe bevajaah, paalkee, bahaar kee,
WHERE BLOOMING PALANQUIN GOT LOOTED WANTONLY,

paalkee bahaar kee
THE BLOOMING PALANQUIN,

voh hamm na theh, voh tum na theh,
THAT WAS NOT ME, THAT WAS NOT YOU...


tumhee.n theh mere rehnumaa,
YOU ALONE WERE MY GUIDE,

tumhee.n theh mere hamsafar,
YOU ALONE WERE MY CO-TRAVELLER,

tumhee.n theh mere raushnee,
YOU ALONE WERE MY LIGHT,

tumhee.n ne mujhko dee nazar
YOU ALONE GAVE ME THE SIGHT,

dee nazar
GAVE THE SIGHT,

binaa tumhaare zindagee
WITHOUT YOU, THE LIFE ....

binaa tumhaare zindagee
WITHOUT YOU THE LIFE

shamaa hai ik mazaar kee,
IS A LAMP OF A TOMB,

lutee jahaa.n pe bevajaah, paalkee, bahaar kee,
WHERE BLOOMING PALANQUIN GOT LOOTED WANTONLY,

paalkee bahaar kee
THE BLOOMING PALANQUIN,

voh hamm na theh, voh tum na theh,
THAT WAS NOT ME, THAT WAS NOT YOU...


yeh kaun saa muqaam hai,
WHAT’S THIS PLACE?

yeh kaun saa muqaam hai,
WHAT’S THIS PLACE?

falak nahee.n, zamee.n nahee.n,
NO SKY, NO EARTH,

ke shab nahee.n, sahar nahee.n,
WITH NO NIGHT, NO MORNING,

ke Gham nahee.n, Kushee nahee.n,
WITH NO SORROW, NO JOY,

kahaa.n yeh leke aa gayee,
WHERE HAVE I BEEN BROUGHT

havaa tere dayaar kee,
BY THE BREEZE OF YOUR THRESHOLD,

lutee jahaa.n pe bevajaah, paalkee, bahaar kee,
WHERE BLOOMING PALANQUIN GOT LOOTED WANTONLY,

paalkee bahaar kee
THE BLOOMING PALANQUIN,

voh hamm na theh, voh tum na theh,
THAT WAS NOT ME, THAT WAS NOT YOU...


guzar rahee hai tum pe kyaa,
WHAT YOU’VE BEEN SUFFERING

banaake hamm ko dar-ba-dar,
BY EXPELLING US,

yeh soch kar udaas hoo.n,
THINKING ABOUT THIS I’M SAD,

yeh soch kar, hai chashm tarr,
THINKING ABOUT THIS, THE EYES ARE WET,

chashm tarr,
THE EYES ARE WET,

na choT hai yeh phool kee,
‘TIS NEITHER THE WOUND OF A FLOWER,

na choT hai yeh phool kee,
‘TIS NEITHER THE WOUND OF A FLOWER,

na hai khalish yeh khaar kee
NOR THE PRICKLE OF A THORN,

lutee jahaa.n pe bevajaah, paalkee, bahaar kee,
WHERE BLOOMING PALANQUIN GOT LOOTED WANTONLY,

paalkee bahaar kee
THE BLOOMING PALANQUIN,

paalkee bahaar kee
THE BLOOMING PALANQUIN,

paalkee bahaar kee.
THE BLOOMING PALANQUIN....
