First Class

[First-Class]
[First-Class]

mērē hōṭhōṁ sē dhuāṁdhār nikltī haiṁ jō bōlī
jaisē jaisē baṁdūq kī gōlī
mērē tēvar mēṁ hai tahzīb kī raṁgīn raṁgōlī
jaisē jaisē hō īd mēṁ hōlī
[all stanza x2]

The smoking words that issue from my lips
are like bullets of a gun
In my stance, there is the sophistication of a colorful rangoli
like Holi in Eid
[all stanza x2]


mērē jīvan kī daśā
thōṛā rāstōṁ kā naśā
thōṛī maṁzil kī pyās hai
bāqī sab [first-class] hai [x3]

These are the circumstances of my life
There is a little intoxication of the road,
a little thirst of destination
Everything else is first-class [x3]


pal mēṁ tōlā, pal mēṁ māśā
jaisī bāzī vaisā pāsā
apnī thōṛī haṭ kē duniyādārī hai
karnā kyā hai cām̐dī sōnā
jitnā pānā utnā khōnā
ham tō dil kē dhaṁdhē kē byāpārī haiṁ

At moments it is a tola, at moments it is a masha
For like bet, like dice
My mundaneness is a little different
What to do (with) gold and silver?
So much gained, that much lost
I am the merchant of the business of the heart


mērī muskān liē kabhī ātī hai subah
kabhī śāmēṁ udās haiṁ
bāqī sab [first-class] hai [x3]
hāṁ, qasam sē
bāqī sab [first-class] hai

For my smile's sake sometimes mornings come
and sometimes evenings are sad
Everything else is first-class [x3]
Yes, I swear!
Everything else is first-class


hō sab kē hōṭhōṁ pē carcā tērā
bam̐ṭtā galiyōṁ mēṁ parcā tērā
yūm̐ tō āśiq haiṁ lākhōṁ magar
sab sē ūṁcā hai darjā tērā

Rumors of yours are on everyone's lips
a (love) letter of yours is distributed in the alleys
There are hundreds of thousands of lovers like that, but
your category is of the highest order of all


mērī tārīf sē chuptī phir badnāmiyām̐ mērī
jaisē jaisē hō ām̐kh micaulī
mērē tēvar mēṁ hai tahzīb kī raṁgīn raṁgōlī
jaisē jaisē hō īd mēṁ hōlī

My scandals hide commendations
like a game of hide-and-seek does
In my stance, there is the sophistication of a colorful rangoli
like Holi in Eid


mērē jīvan kī daśā
thōṛā rāstōṁ kā naśā
thōṛī maṁzil kī pyās hai
bāqī sab [first-class] hai [x3]
hāṁ, qasam sē
bāqī sab [first-class] hai,
hāṁ

These are the circumstances of my life
There is a little intoxication of the road,
a little thirst of destination
Everything else is first-class [x3]
Yes, I swear!
Everything else is first-class
Yes!
