baat meri kabhi suni hi nahin


baat merī kabhī sunī hī nahīñ
jānte vo burī bhalī hī nahīñ

she never did listen to me
twixt bad and good she cannot see

dil-lagī un kī dil-lagī hī nahīñ
ranj bhī hai faqat hañsī hī nahīñ

her love's not only fun and games
there's sorrow too, not joy merely

lutf-e-mai tujh se kyā kahūñ zāhid
haa.e kam-baḳht tū ne pī hī nahīñ

you've never drunk O hapless priest
The joys of wine how will you see

uḌ ga.ī yuuñ vafā zamāne se
kabhī goyā kisī meñ thī hī nahīñ

as though, in none, did ever dwell
this world has shed fidelity

jaan kyā duuñ ki jāntā huuñ maiñ
tum ne ye chiiz le ke dī hī nahīñ

why should I give my life I know
this thing she takes and does not free

ham to dushman ko dost kar lete
par kareñ kyā tirī ḳhushī hī nahīñ

my rival, even, I'd befriend
what could I do you didn't agree

ham tirī aarzū pe jiite haiñ
ye nahīñ hai to zindagī hī nahīñ

I just exist in hope of you
sans hope there is no life for me

dil-lagī dil-lagī nahīñ nāseh
tere dil ko abhī lagī hī nahīñ

Preacher, love is not a game
It hasn't touched your heart I see

'dāġh' kyuuñ tum ko bevafā kahtā
vo shikāyat kā aadmī hī nahīñ

why should I say you are untrue?
complaining's not my style you see

baat meri kabhi suni hi nahin
jaante wo buri bhali hi nahin

she never did listen to me
twixt bad and good she cannot see

dil-lagi un ki dil-lagi hi nahin
ranj bhi hai faqat hansi hi nahin

her love's not only fun and games
there's sorrow too, not joy merely

lutf-e-mai tujh se kya kahun zahid
hae kam-baKHt tu ne pi hi nahin

you've never drunk O hapless priest
The joys of wine how will you see

uD gai yun wafa zamane se
kabhi goya kisi mein thi hi nahin

as though, in none, did ever dwell
this world has shed fidelity

jaan kya dun ki jaanta hun main
tum ne ye chiz le ke di hi nahin

why should I give my life I know
this thing she takes and does not free

hum to dushman ko dost kar lete
par karen kya teri KHushi hi nahin

my rival, even, I'd befriend
what could I do you didn't agree

hum teri aarzu pe jite hain
ye nahin hai to zindagi hi nahin

I just exist in hope of you
sans hope there is no life for me

dil-lagi dil-lagi nahin naseh
tere dil ko abhi lagi hi nahin

Preacher, love is not a game
It hasn't touched your heart I see

'dagh' kyun tum ko bewafa kahta
wo shikayat ka aadmi hi nahin

why should I say you are untrue?
complaining's not my style you see
