Yup, one of those days

wtf

The lyrics to an annoyingly awesome bollywood song that is stuck in my head and I can’t sing out loud because, well, I don’t speak the language so in my mind its more like:

“chalne lage mohabbatu *mumble mumble* da da da daah silsile *mumble mumble melody mumble* kehna hi kyyyyyyyyyyaaaaaaaaa…..”

Lyrics for Kehna Hi Kya:

Gumsum gumsum gup chup, gumsum gup chup – 2
(Silent and secretive, silent and secretive)

Halchal halchal ho gayi teri, honth hai tere chup

(You are all shaken, your lips are silent)

Khalbal khalbal ho gayi teri, baithi hai tu gupchup
(You are all disturbed, you are sitting silently)

Pyaare pyaare chehre lekar dediya ishaara

(With your lovely face you’ve given us hints)

Dekha teri aankhon mein hai sapna koi pyaara
(We have seen that there is some sweet dream in your eyes)

Humse gori naa tu sharma, kehde humse zara – 2

(Don’t be shy of us, tell us a little)

–FEMALE–
Kehna hi kya yeh nain ek anjaan se jo mile
(What is there to say, my eyes met with a stranger)

Chalne lage mohabbat ke jaise yeh silsile

(As if a love story has started)

Armaan naye aise dil mein khile, jinko kabhi main naa jaanoon
(Wishes that I never knew before are blooming in my heart)

Voh humse, hum unse kabhi naa mile, kaise mile dil naa jaanoon

(If he and I never met, I don’t know how our hearts would have met)

Ab kya kare, kya naam le, kaise unhe main pukaaroon
(What do I do now, what is his name, how can I call him?)

Kehna hi kya yeh nain ek anjaan se jo mile

(What is there to say, my eyes met with a stranger)

Chalne lage mohabbat ke jaise yeh silsile
(As if a love story has started)

Armaan naye aise dil mein khile, jinko kabhi main naa jaanoon

(Wishes that I never knew before are blooming in my heart)

Voh humse, hum unse kabhi naa mile, kaise mile dil naa jaanoon
(If he and I never met, I don’t know how our hearts would have met)

Ab kya kare, kya naam le, kaise unhe main pukaaroon
(What do I do now, what is his name, how can I call him?)

Pehli hi nazar mein kuch hum, kuch tum ho jaate hai yun gum
(At first sight him and I got a little lost)

Nainon se barse rim jhim, rim jhim humpe pyaar ka saavan
(A shower of love fell dripping from our eyes)

Sharm thodi thodi humko aaye to nazarein jhuk jaayen
(When I got a little shy my eyes turned downward)

Sitam thoda thoda humpe shok hawa bhi kar jaaye
(A breeze of wind also gave me a little torture)

Aisi chali, aanchal ude, dil mein ek toofaan uthe
(It blew such that my sari flew, a storm brewed in my heart)

Hum to lut gaye khade hi khade
(I was totally taken while standing)

Kehna hi kya yeh nain ek anjaan se jo mile
(What is there to say, my eyes met with a stranger)

Chalne lage mohabbat ke jaise yeh silsile

(As if a love story has started)

Armaan naye aise dil mein khile, jinko kabhi main naa jaanoon
(Wishes that I never knew before are blooming in my heart)

Voh humse, hum unse kabhi naa mile, kaise mile dil naa jaanoon

(If he and I never met, I don’t know how our hearts would have met)

Ab kya kare, kya naam le, kaise unhe main pukaaroon
(What do I do now, what is his name, how can I call him?)

–CHORUS–

Gumsum gumsum gup chup, gumsum gup chup – 2
(Silent and secretive, silent and secretive)

Halchal halchal ho gayi teri, honth hai tere chup
(You are all shaken, your lips are silent)

Khalbal khalbal ho gayi teri, baithi hai tu gupchup

(You are all disturbed, you are sitting silently)

Pyaare pyaare chehre lekar dediya ishaara
(With your lovely face you’ve given us hints)

Dekha teri aankhon mein hai sapna koi pyaara

(We have seen that there is some sweet dream in your eyes)

Humse gori naa tu sharma, kehde humse zara – 2
(Don’t be shy of us, tell us a little)

–FEMALE–
In honthon ne maanga sargam, sargam tu aur tera hi pyaar hai

(These lips asked for a song, the song is you and your love)

Aankhen dhoonde hai jisko har dam, har dam tu aur tera hi pyaar hai
(What my eyes search for at every moment is you and your love)

Mehfil mein bhi tanha hai dil aise, dil aise
(Even in a crowd my heart is alone like this)

Tujhko kho naa de, darrta hai yeh aise, yeh aise
(My heart fears losing you like this)

Aaj mili aisi khushi, jhoom uthi duniya yeh meri

(I got such happiness today, my whole world is dancing)

Tumko paaya to paayi zindagi
(When I found you I found life)

Kehna hi kya yeh nain ek anjaan se jo mile
(What is there to say, my eyes met with a stranger)

Chalne lage mohabbat ke jaise yeh silsile
(As if a love story has started)

Armaan naye aise dil mein khile, jinko kabhi main naa jaanoon
(Wishes that I never knew before are blooming in my heart)

Voh humse, hum unse kabhi naa mile, kaise mile dil naa jaanoon
(If he and I never met, I don’t know how our hearts would have met)

Ab kya kare, kya naam le, kaise unhe main pukaaroon
(What do I do now, what is his name, how can I call him?)

Kehna hi kya yeh nain ek anjaan se jo mile
(What is there to say, my eyes met with a stranger)

Chalne lage mohabbat ke jaise yeh silsile
(As if a love story has started)

Kehna hi kya

(What is there to say)

  1. Nice beat, easy to dance to, I give it an 8….hahaha. Ask your MOM!!! ;-))) Or maybe Grandma!

  2. wha? do you know the song?

    why my mom and gramma? msh fahma ya3ni. They have no clue about bollywood songs. lol

  3. Noooooooooo youngster! What I meant was…(I am realllly dating myself here)…they used to “rate” songs on “American Bandstand” with Dick Clark when he was oh so young…They’d say something like I wrote there….”Nice beat, easy to dance to, I give it an 8″ 10 being the best. That’s why I said ask your Mom or Grandma–ahhahah–they would remember that! Anyway, I watched a zillion Bollywood films in Port Said with my Egyptian “daughters” –they love them, sing to them and even dance Hindi soooo well—we had a lot of fun watching those films!

  4. I love bollywood! I really need to get my hands on some more recent productions 🙂
