Lyrics

kahe rokat ddagar pyaare
nand laal more

nitta hi karat larhaayi ham se
panghatt nahi jaane de
dekhat hen sab naari more
piya kyun gaye

kahe rokat ddagar pyaare
nand laal more

tede nena teer chalaaya
tedi ramzee shor machaaya
almast hazaar maraaya
lakh aashiq maar ganvaaya
ibrahim arhaa arhaayo
baar birhon sarchaaya
saabir te tann keerhe biche
moosa tur jalaaya
zakariya kalotar charaayo
yahya gott kanhaaya
yunas pett machee de paayo
nooh toofaan larhaaya
shah hassan nu shehr madina
zeher da jaam pilaaya
karbal de vich tegh chalaa kar
erha kes karaaya
shams ul haq di khal luhaayo
sarmast sar kapvaaya
shah mansur charhaayo sooli
masti saang rasaaya
majnun kaaran laila ban kar
sou sou naaz dikhaaya
khusrau te farhad de kaaran
shireen naam dohraaya
dard da baar utthaaya har ik
apna waqt nibhaaya
kar qurbaan farid sar apna
teda vaara aaya

Translation

wherefore do you block my path, o’ beloved
my own dear nand

do not quarrel now with me
nor stop me from going to the well
all the other women stare at me
beloved, why do you leave

wherefore do you block my path, o’ beloved
my own dear nand

your eyes shot the arrows
your secret raised the clamor
killed scores of ecstatic devotees
and thousands of lovers lost
put abraham through the fire
bearing the burden on his head
job’s body, with insects filled
burnt moses on sinai
hacked zechariah to pieces
and severed the head of john
placed jonah in the fish’s belly
brought the deluge upon noah
made shah hassan at medina
drink the glass of poison
unsheathed the sword at karbala
and brought about the massacre
peeled the skin off shams ulhaq
made sarmad cut his head off
impaled mansur hallaj on the stake
for ecstatically exclaiming the truth
endowed laila, for the sake of majnun
with a hundred demeanors of love
and repeated the name of shirin
for the love of khusrau and farhad
each carried the burden of sorrow
each lived out his time
sacrifice your own head o’ farid
for now it is your turn!
