kab tak cup baiṭhēṁ ab tō kuch hai bōlnā Sitting silent since so long, now something must be said
kuch tum bōlō kuch ham bōlēṁ ō ḍhōlnā You say something, I say something, beloved
[both lines x3]
mar jānā thā yah bhēd nahīṁ thā khōlnā I rather die than reveal this secret
ō ḍhōlnā … ō ḍhōlnā … Ah, the swinging … oh, beloved …
kab tak cup baiṭhēṁ ab tō kuch hai bōlnā Sitting silent since so long, now I must say something
kuch tum bōlō kuch ham bōlēṁ ō ḍhōlnā You say something, I say something, beloved


dō cār qadam pē tum thē, I was a couple of steps away from you
dō cār qadam pē ham thē You were a couple of steps away from me
[both lines x2]
dō cār qadam yē lēkin, But (compared to) these few steps,
sau mīlōṁ sē kyā kam thē how short a hundred miles are!
phir us pē qadam qadam pē dil kā ḍōlnā And on top of that stepping, this constant swinging of the heart
hāy ḍōlnā … ō ḍhōlnā … Ah, the swinging … oh, beloved …
kab tak cup baiṭhēṁ ab tō kuch hai bōlnā Sitting silent since so long, now something must be said
kuch tum bōlō kuch ham bōlēṁ ō ḍhōlnā You say something, I say something, beloved
[both lines x2]


lō jīt gaē tum ham sē, Look, I prevailed over you
ham hār gaē is dil sē and lost against this heart
[both lines x2]
āyā hai āj labōṁ pē yah pyār baṛī muśkil sē This love came to my lips today, through great difficulty
is pyār mēṁ hamkō pāgal na kar chōṛnā Don't leave, crazily in love
na chōṛnā, ō ḍhōlnā Don't leave, oh beloved
kab tak cup baiṭhēṁ ab tō kuch hai bōlnā Sitting silent since so long, now something must be said
kuch tum bōlō kuch ham bōlēṁ ō ḍhōlnā You say something, I say something, beloved
[both lines x2]
mar jānā thā yē bhēd nahīṁ thā khōlnā I rather die than reveal this secret
ō ḍhōlnā … ō ḍhōlnā … Ah, the swinging … oh, beloved …
kab tak cup baiṭhēṁ ab tō kuch hai bōlnā Sitting silent since so long, now something must be said
kuch tum bōlō kuch ham bōlēṁ ō ḍhōlnā You say something, I say something, beloved
