Lyrics

ManniN na tuN een kadey
GhaRhi ghaRhial di
ChukkiN na saleeb kisey
Oprey gian di

ToRhiN bann maariN chhaal
TainuN baabe di salaah
Anhbhijje reh ke khatnha ki bhla
LaNgh jaaNdiaN ne khinh ch umraN

Tu nhaviN meri gaNga ch
Tu nhavin meri jamuna

Matha asmaan khulla
Paer dharey bhuNje
Paunh kare laad tera
Romm rom chuNme
Teri raah daria
Tere saah ne jaNglaat
Na manniN shehar di ziadati
Ik labhiN tuN ghar be-jiamati

Tu nhaviN meri gaNga ch
Tu nhavin meri jamuna

Tere te anbhau vichale
Kaljug bahurangi
Dabia ey seemaNT de thalle
Satjug ohnuN kaDhiN
HathiN lae miTTi
Saare mallin

Hovey jadoN nagari ey
SaRh ke suaah
Hovey tera sona vi
MiTTi da bha
Khindi na labhiN taN
Sah aapnhi ch vah
Tu deviN hoka
Jia saNtokh da
Te beejiN danha
Sajri hoNd da
Na vekhiN pichhey
MoDha moRh ke
Lae janha chhal ne
PaeRhaN roRh ke

Tu nhaviN meri gaNga ch
Tu nhavin meri jamuna

Translation

Never give in to
Clocks or clocktowers
Do not carry the cross
Of a stranger’s knowledge

Break the dams, jump in
It is your father’s advice
What’s the point in remaining dry
Time just flies away

You swim in my Ganga
You swim in my Yamuna

Your forehead is the open sky
Feet rest on the earth
The wind caresses and
Kisses you all over
Your way is the river
Your breath the wilderness
Never give in to the city’s meanness
Go find a house sans geometry

You swim in my Ganga
You swim in my Yamuna

Between you and experience
Lies the colourful Kaliyug
Buried under the cement
Is the Satyug, dig it out
Take the earth in your hand
Rub it all over

When this town
Turns to ashes
And your gold
To dust
Do not break down
Find the wonder in your breath
Give a call
Of contentment in your being
And sow the seed
Of a new existence
Do not look
Back
The waves will
Wipe away all footprints

You swim in my Ganga
You swim in my Yamuna
