Lyrics - Gulzar

Dum dara dum dara mast mast
Dara dum dara dum dara mast mast
Dara dum dara dum dum
Oh humdum bin tere kya jeena (2)
Oh my love, what's the point in living without you

Tere bina beswaadi beswaadi rathiyan oh sajna (2) Without you the nights are tasteless oh darling
Ho, rookhi re oh rookhi re Dry and parched they are
Kaatoore kaate re, katenaa Trying to pass them, but they don't seem to
(Dum dara..)

Na jaa; chaakri ke maare Don't go, because of the job
Na jaa; souten pukaare, Don't go, the other wife calls
Saawan aayega to puchega If the rain comes, it would ask
Naa jaa rey Please don't go
Pheeki Pheeki beswaadi yeh rathiyan. Dry and tasteless these nights are
Kaatore kaate na kate na Trying to pass time, but it doesn't
Ab tere bina sajna sajna Now without you my darling
Kaate kate na (2) Even time doesn't pass
(Dum dara...)

Tere bina chand ka sona khota re Without you, the moon's golden is impure
Peeli peeli dhool udaave jhoota re The yellow dust flying is false
Tere bina sona peetal Without you, gold seems like brass
Tere sang keekar peepal With you, the keekar plant becomes peepal
Aaja kate na ye rathiyan Come, these nights don't pass at all
Tere bina beswaadi beswaadi rathiyan oh sajna
(Dum dara...)
