Rafi Sahaab’s 1980 hit: Aise Na Theh Hamm....

Roman Transliteration/English Translation of the original Urdu/Hindi Lyrics:



aise na theh hamm , jaisee hamaaree, kee ruswaayee, logo.n ne,
WE WEREN’T THE TYPE FOR WHICH THE PEOPLE HUMILIATED US,

kuchh tum ne –
PARTLY YOU...

kuchh tum ne, bad-naam kiya
PARTLY YOU DEFAMED US,

kuch, aag lagaayee, logo.n ne,
PARTLY, THE PEOPLE KINDLED THE FIRE OF FRICTION,

aise na theh hamm...
WE WEREN’T THE TYPE ...


ho sakta hai, tumne jo dekha ho,
MAYBE WHAT YOU SAW

sanam tumhaaree, nazro.n ka dokha ho,
SWEETHEART, WAS AN ILLUSION,

dil se na duur karo, yaar hame.n,
DON’T TURN US OUT FROM YOUR HEART, MATE,

hamm ne kiyaa hai, pyaar tumeh..
‘TIS YOU WE’VE LOVED,

ho sakta hai, tumne jo dekha ho,
MAYBE WHAT YOU SAW

sanam tumharee, nazro.n ka dokha ho..
SWEETHEART, WAS AN ILLUSION,

ek zara see, baat pe kyaa kyaa, baat banaayee, logo.n ne..
FOR A SMALL THING, WHAT A STORY WAS CONCOCTED BY THE PEOPLE,

kuchh tumne,
PARTLY YOU,

kuch tumne bad-naam kiyaa
PARTLY YOU DEFAMED US,

kuch, aag lagaayee, logo.n ne,
PARTLY, THE PEOPLE KINDLED THE FIRE OF STRIFE,

aise na theh hamm....
WE WEREN’T THE TYPE...

Thokar me.n is, dil ko liye,
STRIKING THIS HEART WITH YOUR FOOT,

to.d ke tum toh, chal bhee diye,
YOU EVEN WALKED AWAY, BREAKING IT,

Thokar me.n is, dil ko liye,
STRIKING THIS HEART WITH YOUR FOOT,

to.d ke tum toh, chal bhee diye,
YOU EVEN WALKED AWAY, BREAKING IT,

chal bhee diye...
EVEN WALKED AWAY,

tum ko khabar kyaa, sheher me.n uss din,
WHAT DO YOU KNOW, THAT DAY IN THE TOWN

Eid manaayee, logo.n ne,
PEOPLE CELEBRATED IT LIKE THE DAY OF ‘EID.

kuchh tumne...
PARTLY YOU,

kuchh tumne bad-naam kiyaa
PARTLY YOU DEFAMED US,

kuchh, aag lagaayee, logo.n ne,
PARTLY, THE PEOPLE KINDLED THE FIRE OF FRICTION,

aise na theh hamm , jaisee hamaaree, kee ruswaayee logo.n ne,
WE WEREN’T THE TYPE FOR WHICH THE PEOPLE HUMILIATED US,

aise na theh hamm...
WE WEREN’T THE TYPE...
