बाबूजी धीरे चलना
Sir, You Must Tread Carefully
00 :29
बाबूजी धीरे चलना
प्यार में ज़रा संभलना
हाँ बड़े धोखे हैं
बड़े धोखे हैं इस राह में
[all stanza x2]
बाबूजी धीरे चलना 
Sir, you must tread carefully
in love, you must be a little cautious
Yes, there are big cheaters,
there are big cheaters in this path.
[all stanza x2]
Sir, you must tread carefully …
01 :05
क्यूँ हो खोए हुए सर झुकाए
जैसे जाते हो सब कुछ लुटाए
यह तो बाबूजी पहला क़दम है
नज़र आते हैं अपने पराये
Why are you crestfallen, lost (in thoughts)
as if you were leaving after losing everything?
Sir, this is the first step
(where) your own people look stranger
01 :21
हाँ बड़े धोखे हैं
बड़े धोखे हैं इस राह में
Yes, there are big cheaters,
there are big cheaters in this path.

Sir, you must tread carefully
in love, you must be a little cautious
Yes, there are big cheaters,
there are big cheaters in this path.
Sir, you must tread carefully …
01 :51
यह मोहब्बत है  भोले-भाले
कर  दिल को ग़मों के हवाले
काम उल्फ़त का नाज़ुक बहुत है
 के होंठों पे टूटेंगे प्याले
This is love, oh, innocent one!
Don’t entrust your heart out of sorrows!
Affection is a very delicate work
the cups will break upon touching the lips
02 :06
हाँ बड़े धोखे हैं
बड़े धोखे हैं इस राह में
Yes, there are big cheaters,
there are big cheaters in this path.

प्यार में ज़रा संभलना
हाँ बड़े धोखे हैं
बड़े धोखे हैं इस राह में
बाबूजी धीरे चलना 
Sir, you must tread carefully
in love, you must be a little cautious
Yes, there are big cheaters,
there are big cheaters in this path.
Sir, you must tread carefully …
02 :36
हो गई है किसी से जो अनबन
थाम ले दूसरा कोई दामन
ज़िंदगानी कि राहें अजब हैं
हो अकेला है तो लाखों हैं दुश्मन
If you have gotten estranged with someone
grab someone else's skirt (resort to someone else)
There is wonder in the paths of life,
oh, there is a person alone, enemies in the hundreds of thousands
02 :52
हाँ बड़े धोखे हैं
बड़े धोखे हैं इस राह में
Yes, there are big cheaters,
there are big cheaters in this path.

बाबूजी धीरे चलना
प्यार में ज़रा संभलना
हाँ बड़े धोखे हैं
बड़े धोखे हैं इस राह में
बाबूजी धीरे चलना 
Sir, you must tread carefully
in love, you must be a little cautious
Yes, there are big cheaters,
there are big cheaters in this path.
Sir, you must tread carefully …
