Billo Rani

billō rānī
Billo Queen

hāṁ śahar mēṁ dūsrī kōī
nahīṁ kōī tujh sī billō
jō bhī dēkhē yahī pūchē
hai yah kiskī billō
har adā tērī jagtī hai qayāmat kōī
har qadam par tū girtī calē bijlī billō

Yeah, in the city,
there is no other like you, Billo
Even everyone you see is asking
if he is the one you belong to, Billo
Every coquetry of yours awakens some apocalypse
Billo, on every step you take, a lightining falls!


iśq kar kē tujhsē dīvānā bētāb huā barbād huā
bhūl gayā apnā bhī nām jab nām tērā isē yād huā
[both lines x2]

Crazily in love with you, he got restless, ruined
Since your name is in his thought, he forgot his
[both lines x2]


yē haiṁ jō majnūm̐ / hāy
inhēṁ kyā maiṁ samjhūm̐ / taubā
rōz hō jātē haiṁ yah kisī na kisī pē fidā
arē hāṁ
āj iskē pīchē kal uskē pīchē
kyā ṭhikānā hai inkā
ki hō jāē kab lāpatā
hō inkī mōhabbat rēśam kā jāl hai hāy
dīvāngī bhī inkī ēk cāl hai

These who are love-crazed ... alas!
What should I think of them ... good heavens!
Every day they are infatuated with one or with another
Come on, yeah
Today after this one, tomorrow after that one
What residence/certainty is there, of his,
that doesn't ever become lost/untraceable?
Oh, their love is like a mesh of silk, ah!
Even their craziness is a trick


hō billō rānī
hō billō rānī
kahō tō abhī jān dē dūm̐
[both lines x4]

Oh Billo Queen
Oh Billo Queen,
say the word, and I shall give my life right now
[both lines x4]

lacktī bām̐hōṁ kē is gulśan mēṁ
phūlōṁ jaisē is tan mēṁ
hō pāgal hī kar dē aisē xuśbū hai
camktī ām̐khōṁ kī in tārōṁ mēṁ
hōṭhōṁ kē gulzārōṁ mēṁ
hō dīvānā kar dē aisā jādū hai

In the garden of your supple arms
In this body of yours, like flowers
Oh, there is a fragrance that makes me mad
In the stars of your shining eyes
In the rose gardens of your lips
Oh, there is such a magic that makes me mad


ō tērī bātēṁ rijhāēm̐
mērē dil kō phir bhī
maiṁ na mānūm̐ inhēṁ hō mēṁ na mānūm̐
tērī ām̐khēṁ dikhāēm̐ sapnē
pair na saccā jānūm̐ inhēṁ

Oh, your talk
charm my heart once and again
(But) oh, I have trouble believing in them
Your eyes show me dreams
but I don't take them as honest


ōf ō!
rāh mēṁ tūnē mujh sē rōkā hai
is mēṁ kōī na kōī dhōkā hai

Ah, me!
You have stopped me in my tracks
Is there any deception in this, or isn't it?

Oh Billo Queen,
Oh Billo Queen,

ki ab tak ṭhumrī samajh mēṁ āī na
ghūm liyā cāhē sab duniyā
ē ham sā prēmī na milī hai tum kā kabhī
ki billō dhak dhak ē mān dahkātā hai
tan mēṁ agni bhaṛktā hai
jab jab lagāvtā hō tum ṭhumkā kahīṁ

So far into the thumri, if you didn't understand (yet)
Although you might roam around the entire world,
hey, you haven't found yourself a sweetheart like me
Billo, when my heart is palpitating "thud, thud"
fire flares up in my body
whenever you do your thumka


ō tērī nīyat hai khōṭī
mān hai pāpī
harjāī tū bēīmān tū
tērī cāhat maiṁ jānūm̐ rājā kyā hai mujhkō
bhōlī nahīṁ jān tū

Your intentions are fake
(your) heart is wicked
You are a vagabond, a cheater
I know your what your love is for me, king
I am not naïve, know that!


bhēs banāē prēmī kā sā hai
tū bham̐vrā tū ras kā pyās hai

Under the guise of a lover
you are a back bee, you are thirsty for the juice

kahō tō abhī jān dē dūm̐
hō billō rānī
kahō tō abhī jān dē dūm̐

Oh Billo Queen,
Oh Billo,
Oh Billo,
Oh Billo Queen,
say the word, and I shall give my life right now
[both lines x2]
Oh, I shall give my life, my faith
Billo Queen,
say the word, and I shall give my life right now
Oh Billo Queen,
say the word, and I shall give my life right now
