जो न करना था कर गई
मैं भी [kiṭṭ] जा के मर गई

[mixing Punjabi words]
I did what I wasn’t supposed to do
Where did I even end up dying (i.e. what hit me)?
[both lines x2]
A good, wholesome, proper Jat woman
has become totally crazy now
I’ve become totally crazy now
I totally …


रोज़ सवेरे नीम अँधेरे
घर से भागी में भागी घर से तोहरे वास्ते
बीच रात के / के, के
नींद से जागी में जागी नींद से तोहरे वास्ते

Daily in the morning, in half-darkness
I run away from home just for Your sake
Without any reason, in the middle of the night
I awaken from my sleep just for Your sake


दुनिया के बोले ? तू जान दे
म्हारे दिल की जान ले
मैं घनी बावरी हो गई [x2]
मैं घनी …

Leave aside what the world says,
just get to know what my heart feels
I’ve become totally crazy [x2]
I totally …


यहाँ वहाँ से, सारे जहान से
लौट के आ गई
मैं आ गई लौट के तोहरे प्यार में
पहले जग से, इब तो रब से
बन गई भागी
मैं भागी बन गई तोहरे प्यार में

From here and there, from the whole world
I’ve returned
I’ve returned back due to your love
First with the world, and in like manner, with God himself
I became an accomplice
I became an accomplice in your love


मेरे जाने पे फिर तू रोवे कहीं ऐसा न होवे
मैं घनी बावली हो गई [x3]
मैं घनी …

May you never cry upon my departure, may such a thing not ever happen
I’ve become totally crazy [x3]
I totally …


तू घनी बावरी हो गई से
हो गई, हो गई, हो गई,
हो गई, हो गई,
बावली हो गई
हो गई, हो गई …

You’ve become totally crazy
become, become, become
become, become
become crazy
become, become …
