Umran Langiyan


ਉਮਰਾਂ ਲੰਘੀਆਂ
Lifetimes passed
00 :12
ਹਰ ਵੇਲੇ ਤਾਂਘਾਂ ਯਾਰ ਦੀਆਂ
ਮੈਂ ਤਾਂ ਬੈਠੀ ਕਾਗ ਉਡਾਰਾਂ
ਆਪ ਵੰਜਣਾਂ ਕਿ ਮੈਂ ਕਾਸਦ ਭੇਜਾਂ
ਮੇਰਾ ਥੀ ਗਇਓਂ ਹਾਲ ਬਿਮਾਰਾਂ
At every moment, longings for (my) beloved,
I therefore sit, shooing crows.
(Should I) go myself or dispatch a messenger?
My state has become (that of) the sick people
00 :47
ਗ਼ੁਲਾਮ ਫ਼ਰੀਦਾ 
ਗ਼ੁਲਾਮ ਫ਼ਰੀਦਾ  ਮੈਂ ਤਾਂ ਓਵੇਂ ਵਿਛੜੀ
ਜਿਵੇਂ ਵਿਛੜੀਆਂ ਕੂੰਜ ਕਟਾਰਿਆਂ
Oh, Ghulam Fareed!
So, Ghulam Fareed, I became as separated
as separated migratory cranes

Lifetimes passed on the verge [x4]

ਕਮਲੀ ਕਰ ਕੇ ਛੋੜ ਦਿੱਤੋ 
ਛੋੜ ਦਿੱਤੋ  [x2]
You went to a foreign land, became a foreigner [x3]
and calamities, daily (came) towards your homeland!
Hey! Having driven me crazy, you forsook me! [x2]
Having driven me crazy …
Hey! Having driven me crazy, you forsook me!
Hey! You have forsaken me! [x2]
Hey! Having driven me crazy, you forsook me!

ਜੇ ਮੈਂ ਮੁਖ ਮਾਹੀ ਵੱਲੋਂ ਮੋੜਾਂ
Hey! Having driven me crazy, you forsook me!
And I sit, sifting chaff of the streets
Oh, Ghulam Fareed! I would rot in hell [x2]
if I ever turned (face) from my beloved

Umran Langiyaan (Gurmukhi: ਉਮਰਾਂ ਲੰਘੀਆਂ, Shahmukhi: عمراں لنگھنیاں ) "A lifetime on tiptoe / on the verge" is a Punjabi folk song written in 1970 by the Indo-Pakistani writer Mazhar Tirmazi, and made famous by the Pakistani ghazal interpreter Asad Amanat Ali Khan.

The lyrics are written from the point of view of a woman waiting for her lover (as it is usual for Sufi writers).
It draws inspiration from Ghulam Farid or Khwaja Ghulam Farid Korejo, a Punjabi Sufi poet and scholar from the times of the British Raj.

Much of the song is not in Punjabi proper, but its Multani / Saraiki dialect, one of the many languages Ghulam Farid has used.

Towards the end of the video, this song is fused with a short section of another folk song: Chan Chan ChanKan ("Clink-Clank tinkle"), another faomous Punjabi folk song by the singer and composer Allah Ditta Lonay Wala.

Modernized and arranged for Coke Studio Pakistan, these 2 songs are interpreted in the video by the singers Ali Sethi (Umran Langiyaan) and Nabeel Shaukat (Chan Chan Chankan).
