Koi Ladki Hai



cāk dhūm dhūm, cāk dhūm dhūm Chak! dhoom, dhoom! Chak! dhoom, dhoom!
[beat sung continuously in the background]
ghōṛē jaisī cāl, hāthī jaisī dum The walk like a horse, the tail like an elephant
ō sāvan rājā, kahām̐ sē āē tum Oh, King of Sawan, where did you come from?
[both lines x2]


kōī laṛkī hai jab vah ham̐stī hai There is a girl who, whenever she laughs
cāk dhūm dhūm cāk dhūm dhūm [x2] Chak! dhoom, dhoom! Chak! dhoom, dhoom! [x2]
kōī laṛkī hai, jab vah ham̐stī hai There is a girl, whenever she laughs …
bāriś hōtī hai chanak chanak cum cum there is rain jingling, kissing
[both lines x2]


kōī laṛkā hai jab vah gātā hai There is a lad who, whenever he sings
cāk dhūm dhūm cāk dhūm dhūm [x2] Chak! dhoom, dhoom! Chak! dhoom, dhoom! [x2]
arē Come on!
kōī laṛkā hai, jab vah gātā hai There is a guy who, whenever he sings
sāvan ātā hai ghumaṛ ghumaṛ ghūm ghūm Sawan comes, gathering, rolling
[both lines x2]


bādal jhukē jhukē sē haiṁ, Clouds have sort of lowered
rastē rukē rukē sē haiṁ Roads have sort of stopped
kyā tērī marzī hai mēghā, What is your wish, oh raincloud!
ghar hamkō jānē na dēgā You won't let us leave our home!


āgē hai barsāt, pīchē hai tūfān A rainfall is in front, a storm is behind
mausam bēīmān, kahām̐ calēṁ ham tum The season is a deceiver, where shall you and I go?
cāk dhūm dhūm cāk dhūm dhūm [x2] Chak! dhoom, dhoom! Chak! dhoom, dhoom! [x2]
kōī laṛkī hai, jab vah ham̐stī hai There is a girl, whenever she laughs …
bāriś hōtī hai chanak chanak dhūm dhūm there is rain: Chak, chak! dhoom, dhoom!


kōī laṛkā hai, jab vah gātā hai There is a guy who, whenever he sings
sāvan ātā hai ghumaṛ ghumaṛ ghūm ghūm Sawan comes, gathering, rolling
