More Romantic Songs of Rafi:  jaane voh kaun hain….
Roman Transliteration/English Translation of the original Hindi-Urdu Lyrics:

Jaane voh kaun hai.N….
WHO KNOWS WHO THEYRE!

jaane voh  kaun hai.N kyaa, naam hai un aa.Nkho.n kaa,
WHO KNOWS WHO THEY’RE! WHAT’S THE NAME OF THOSE EYES!

dil pe anjaanee  see, tasveer banaa detee hai.N,
A MYSTERIOUS PICTURE THEY DRAW ON MY HEART!

bujh ke reh jaatee  hai jab,  koyee tamannaa dil me.n,
WHEN SOME DESIRE GETS STIFLED IN THE HEART,

ik chiraaG aur bhee, chup-ke se jalaa detee  hai.N,
SILENTLY THEY  LIGHT  UP ANOTHER LAMP!

jaane voh kaun hai.N ...
WHO KNOWS WHO THEY’RE!

mujh ko behelaatee hai.N,  naashaad jo hotaa hoo.N kabhee,
WHEN I GET DEPRESSED THEY ENTERTAIN ME,

neend me.n rang   milaatee hai.N jo sotaa hoo.N kabhee,  
BLENDING COLOURS DURING MY SLEEP,

jaag-taa hoo.N toh haay…
WHEN I WAKE UP, OH!

jaagataa hoo.N toh,   kaee Khwaab dikhaa detee hai.N,
WHEN I WAKE UP THEY SHOW ME MANY DREAMS,

jaane voh  kaun hai.N  kyaa,  naam hai un aa.Nkho.n kaa,
WHO KNOWS WHO THEY’RE! WHAT’S THE NAME OF THOSE EYES!
hmmm~~~

jab bhee uTh-tee hai.N,  chhalaktee hai.N gulaabee kee taraah,
WHEN THEY LOOK UP, SPILLING SCENTED ROSE,

der tak mai.n toh,  bahak-taa hoo.N sharaabee  kee taraah,
FOR LONG DO I STRAY LIKE A DRUNK,

kyaa kahoo.N chup-ke se, haay,
OH, WHAT TO SAY! GENTLY….

kyaa kahoo.N chup-ke se, kyaa cheez pilaa detee  hai.N,
WHAT DO THEY GENTLY IMBIBE ME WITH, BEATS ME!

jaane voh kaun hai.N ...WHO KNOWS WHO THEY’RE!
 
roz miltee  hai.N voh,  tanhaa nahee.n rehne detee.n,
THEY MEET ME DAILY, NOT LETTING ME STAY ALONE,

yeh  hai baat aur ke,  apnaa nahee.N  kehne detee.n
‘TIS SOMETHING ELSE THAT THEY  WON’T LET ME REGARD THEM AS MINE!

aur keh doo.N toh, haay
AND IF I REGARD THEM AS SUCH, OH!

aur kah doo.N toh,   palak ha.Ns ke jhukaa detee hai.N
AND IF I REGARD THEM AS SUCH, THEY LET THE EYE-LASHES DOWN CHUCKLING!

jaane voh  kaun hai.N  kyaa,  naam hai un aa.Nkho.n kaa,
WHO KNOWS WHO THEY’RE! WHAT’S THE NAME OF THOSE EYES!

dil pe anjaanee  see, tasveer banaa detee hai.N,
A MYSTERIOUS PICTURE THEY DRAW ON MY HEART!

jaane voh kaun hai.
WHO KNOWS WHO THEY’RE!

 
NASIR

 
And those eyes, the break of day, 
Lights that do mislead the morn: 
-        Shakespeare.
