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,

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

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,

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