Jhalliya Lyrics

Jhalliya (x4)

O foolish one

Bulleh Shah zahr wekh ke peeta te kee peeta
‘ishq soch ke keeta te keeh keeta
Dil de ke dil lain di aas rakhi
 Ve buleya pyaar eho jiha keeta te keeh keeta

Bulleh Shah, what’s the point of taking poison, yet fearing its ingredients?
What’s the point of falling in love, yet fearing its consequences?
If you give your heart in the hope that your love may be returned
What’s the point then, Bulleh Shah, of giving your heart at all?

Jhalliya ‘ishq kamauna aukha
Kise noon yaar banauna aukha
Jhalliya ‘ishq kamauna aukha
 Kise noon yaar banauna aukha

O foolish one, love is a difficult task
To make someone your true beloved is a difficult task
O foolish one, love is a difficult task
To make someone your true beloved is a difficult task

Pyaar pyaar te har koyi aakhe
Kar ke pyaar nibhauna aukha
Har koi dukkhaan te hass lainda
 Kise da dard wanḍaauna aukha

Anyone can babble on about love
But to fulfill love’s true pledge is a difficult task
Anyone can laugh through their tears
But to truly share in someone’s sorrows is a difficult task

Gallaan naal rutbe naeen milde
Te sachhe yaar naeen milde
 Jogi bhes waṭauna aukha

Words alone can’t earn you the recognition of a true lover
You will have to prove yourself to please your beloved
To become a jogi like Ranjha did is a difficult task

Jhalliya ‘ishq kamauna aukha
 Kise noon yaar banauna aukha

O foolish one, love is a difficult task
To make someone your true beloved is a difficult task

Ratiyaan jagaaye ‘ishq
Kamli banaaye ‘ishq
 Sooli chadhaaye ‘ishq more piya

Love drives away your sleep
Love drives you beyond sanity
Love drives you to the gallows like Mansur Hallaj

Sab kucch luṭaaye ‘ishq
Kuchh na bachaaye ‘ishq
 Apni manaaye ‘ishq more piya

Love makes you sacrifice everything
Love leaves you with nothing
Loves does whatever it pleases

Gallaan naal rutbe naeen milde
Te sachhe yaar naeen milde
 Jogi bhes waṭauna aukha

Words alone can’t earn you the recognition of a true lover
You will have to prove yourself to please your beloved
To become a jogi like Ranjha did is a difficult task

Jhalliya ‘ishq kamauna aukha
 Kise noon yaar banauna aukha

O foolish one, love is a difficult task
To make someone your true beloved is a difficult task

Vadda ‘ishq ‘ishq toon karna en
Kadi ‘ishq da gunjal khol te sayi
Tainoon maṭṭI wich nah roldewe
Do pyaar de bol bol te sayi
Sukh ghaṭ te dard hazaar milan
Kade ‘ishq noon takṛI tol te sayi
Teri hassdi akkh vi bhijj jaawe
 Kadi saanoon andron phol te sayi

You love to babble on about love
But really try unraveling the mystery of love sometime
It could leave you utterly vanquished
Let your lips speak just two words of love sometime
You will find few joys here and a thousand sorrows
Try weighing the gains of love sometime
Even your joyous laughter will turn to tears
Try feeling what’s in our heart sometime

Tera zikr meri har baat mein hai
Tera zikr meri har baat mein hai
 Tu paas naheen par saath mein hai

You are constantly in my thoughts
You are constantly in my thoughts
Even while far from me, you remain with me

Main tujh se bichaṛ kar jaaoon kahaan
Tera ‘ishq to meri zaat mein hai
 Tera zikr meri har baat mein hai

How could I ever part from you and leave?
Love for you is part of my very being
You are constantly in my thoughts

Jhalliya ‘ishq kamauna aukha
Kise noon yaar banauna aukha
Jhalliya ‘ishq kamauna aukha
 Kise noon yaar banauna aukha

O foolish one, love is a difficult task
To make someone your true beloved is a difficult task
O foolish one, love is a difficult task
To make someone your true beloved is a difficult task

Dardaan di maari jind
Ro ro ke haari jind
 Tarse wechaari jind labhdi piya

Life is overcome with anguish
Life weeps in defeat
Life yearns for the beloved

‘ishq ch saari jind
Sajnaan ton waari jind
 Maare uḍaari jind labhdi piya

Life becomes all about love
Life is sacrificed for the sweetheart
Life goes to any length for the beloved

Gallaan naal rutbe naeen milde
Te sachhe yaar naeen milde
Jogi bhes waṭauna aukha
Jhalliya ‘ishq kamauna aukha
 Kise noon yaar banauna aukha

Words alone can’t earn you the recognition of a true lover
You will have to prove yourself to please your beloved
To become a jogi like Ranjha did is a difficult task
O foolish one, love is a difficult task
To make someone your true beloved is a difficult task

Jhalliya ve
Jhalliya ve
Jhalliya ve
Jhalliya ve
Jhalliya ve
Jhalliya ve
 Jhalliya (x8)

O foolish one
O foolish one
O foolish one
O foolish one
O foolish one
O foolish one
O foolish one
