Babuji Dheere Chalna



bābūjī dhīrē calnā Sir, you must tread carefully
pyār mēṁ zarā saṁbhlnā in love, you must be a little cautious
hāṁ baṛē dhōkhē haiṁ Yes, there are big cheaters,
baṛē dhōkhē haiṁ is rāh mēṁ there are big cheaters in this path.
[all stanza x2]
bābūjī dhīrē calnā … Sir, you must tread carefully …

nazar ātē haiṁ apnē parāyē (where) your own people look stranger


hāṁ baṛē dhōkhē haiṁ Yes, there are big cheaters,
baṛē dhōkhē haiṁ is rāh mēṁ there are big cheaters in this path.

ā kē hōṁṭhōṁ pē ṭūṭēṁgē pyālē the cups will break upon touching the lips

hō gaī hai kisī sē jō anban If you have gotten estranged with someone
