Roman Transliteration/English Translation of the original Hindi Lyrics:


daulat ke jhooThe nashe me.n ho choor,
SLOSHED WITH FALSE INTOXICATION OF AFFLUENCE,


ghareebo.n kee duniyaa se rehte ho duur,
YOU STAY AWAY FROM THE POORMAN’S WORLD,


ajee ek din, aisaa aayegaa
HEY, SUCH A DAY WILL COME


jab maaTee me.n sab mil jaayegaa,
WHEN ALL WILL MINGLE WITH THE DUST,


maaTee hee o.Dhan,
‘TIS ONLY THE DUST THAT IS THE COVERING,


maaTee bichhawan,
THE DUST IS THE BEDDING,


maaTee ka tann ban jaayegaa
THE BODY WILL TURN INTO DUST,


maaTee me.n sab mil jaayegaa...
ALL WILL MINGLE WITH THE DUST...


oo.nche aasmaan se bhee oo.nchee teree aas hai,
HIGHER THAN THE HIGH HEAVEN IS YOUR DESIRE,


par kabhee sochaa nahee.n,
HAVE YOU EVER PONDERED


gintee kee teree saas hai,
YOU’VE A LIMITED BREATH,


is kaa tuu hisaab kar,
MAKE AN ACCOUNT OF IT,


angooThaa ungliyo.n pe dhar,
KEEP THE THUMB ON THE FINGERS,


kitnee kharch kar rahaa bhalaayee me.n,
HOW MUCH ARE YOU SPENDING IN BENEFICENCE?


kitnee tuu lagaa rahaa buraayee me.n,
HOW MUCH ARE YOU USING FOR WICKEDNESS?


bhalaayee ka phal reh jaayegaa,
FRUITS OF DOING GOOD WILL ABIDE,


baaqee maaTee me.n sab mil jaayegaa,
REST WILL ALL MINGLE WITH THE DUST,


maaTee hee o.Dhan,
‘TIS ONLY THE DUST THAT IS THE COVERING,


maaTee bichhawan,
THE DUST IS THE BEDDING,


maaTee ka tann ban jaayegaa
THE BODY WILL TURN INTO DUST,


maaTee me.n sab mil jaayegaa...
ALL WILL MINGLE WITH THE DUST...


oo.nchee haveli yeh oo.nche mahal, AAAA~~~
THE TOWERING MANSION, THESE GRAND PALACES,


oo.nchee haveli yeh oo.che mahal,
THE TOWERING MANSION, THESE GRAND PALACES,


pal bhar me.n jaaye.nge pagle badal,
WILL GET TRANSFORMED IN AN INSTANT O FOOL,


le tuu kisee kee duaao.n ka phal~~~,
TAKE THE FRUIT OF SOMEONE’S BLESSINGS,


badee se Tal, aur nekee pe chal,
AVOID EVIL, TREAD THE RIGHTEOUS PATH,


jaisaa boyegaa waisaa paayegaa,
AS YOU SOW, SO SHALL YOU REAP,


baaqee maaTee me.n sab mil jaayegaa,
REST WILL ALL MINGLE WITH THE DUST,


daulat ke jhooThe nashe me.n ho choor,
SLOSHED WITH FALSE INTOXICATION OF AFFLUENCE,


ghareebo.n kee duniyaa se rehte ho duur,
YOU STAY AWAY FROM THE POORMAN’S WORLD,


ajee ek din, aisaa aayegaa
HEY, SUCH A DAY WILL COME


jab maaTee me.n sab mil jaayegaa,
WHEN ALL WILL MINGLE WITH THE DUST,


maaTee hee o.Dhan,
‘TIS ONLY THE DUST THAT IS THE COVERING,


maaTee bichhawan,
THE DUST IS THE BEDDING,


maaTee ka tann ban jaayegaa
THE BODY WILL TURN INTO DUST,


maaTee me.n sab mil jaayegaa...
ALL WILL MINGLE WITH DUST...


daulat ke jhooThe nashe me.n ho choor. AAA~~~~
SLOSHED WITH FALSE INTOXICATION OF AFFLUENCE.


NASIR.
