Matwala Jiya Dole Piya



matvālā jiyā ḍōlē piyā My inebriated soul sways, darling
jhūmē ghaṭā chāē rē bādal masses of rainclouds gather, clouds are covering (the sky)
karnā hai tō kar pyār na ḍar Love me, you must, don't fear,
bītī umr āēgī na kal ages past won't come tomorrow,
arē pāgal arē pāgal oh crazy one, crazy one!
[all stanza x2]
matvālā jiyā ḍōlē piyā My inebriated soul sways, darling


armān bharā dil hai bālam, My heart full of desires, beloved,
tērē havālē in reference to you
tū apnā banā lē arē Make it yours, oh,
tū apnā banā lē make it yours!
[all stanza x2]


sāvan hai javānī pē It is Sawan on youth,
lagī dil kī bulā lē the heart's craving calls
ham̐s lē zarā gā lē arē Laugh, please, sing, oh,
ham̐s lē zarā gā lē laugh, please, sing
sāvan hai javānī pē It is Sawan on youth,
lagī dil kī bulā lē the heart's craving calls
ham̐s lē zarā gā lē Laugh, please, sing


nācē mērā man āj sajan My mood dances today, lover,
chan channan bōlē rē pāyal oh, (my) anklet says tinkle-tinkle
[both verses x2]
karnā hai tō kar pyār na ḍar Love me, you must, don't fear,
bītī umr āēgī na kal ages past won't come tomorrow,
arē pāgal arē pāgal oh crazy one, crazy one!
matvālā jiyā ḍōlē piyā My inebriated soul sways, darling


dil tērā dīvānā, mērī am̐khiyām̐ bhī dīvānī Your heart is crazy and so are my eyes
kuch dē dē niśānī, arē kuch dē dē niśānī Give me some signal, oh, give me some signal
dil tērā dīvānā, mērī am̐khiyām̐ bhī dīvānī Your heart is crazy and so are my eyes,
arē kuch dē dē niśānī oh, give me some signal


duniyā kē mazē lūṭ lē, jīvan hai kahānī Loot the world's pleasures, life is (but) a story
dō din hai javānī, arē dō din hai javānī Youth lasts (only) a couple of days, oh, a couple of days
duniyā kē mazē lūṭ lē, jīvan hai kahānī Loot the world's pleasures, life is (but) a story
arē dō din hai javānī Oh, youth lasts (only) a couple of days


duniyā hai baṛī, jādū bharī The world is big and full of magic,
mērī galī, sāth mērē cal come to my lane with me
[both lines x2]
karnā hai tō kar pyār na ḍar Love me, you must, don't fear,
bītī umr āēgī na kal ages past won't come tomorrow,
arē pāgal arē pāgal oh crazy one, crazy one!


matvālā jiyā ḍōlē piyā My inebriated soul sways, darling
jhūmē ghaṭā chāē rē bādal masses of rainclouds gather, clouds cover (the sky)
karnā hai tō kar pyār na ḍar Love me, you must, don't fear,
bītī umr āēgī na kal ages past won't come tomorrow,
arē pāgal arē pāgal oh crazy one, crazy one!
matvālā jiyā ḍōlē piyā … My inebriated soul sways, darling
