00 :27
तो आज यार घर पे यह बोल दो
आएँगे देर से फ़िक्रें सब छोड़ दो
आज हक़ से अपने हिसाब में
हम जो करने चले गलती वह जोड़ लो
Today friend, declare this at home:
"I will come back late, abandon all worries!"
Today it is (your) prerogative: in our own account,
add the mischief that we are going to commit!
00 :53
तो आज यार कुछ लम्हों के लिए
बिगड़ी राहों पे तुम पैरों को मोड़ दो
आज हक़ से दुनिया को भूल के
जितने हैं  क़ायदे वो सारे तोड़ दो
Today friends, for a few moments,
turn your feet towards trodden roads
Today it is (your) prerogative: forgetting the world,
break as many rules as there are!
01 :07
हो खुले [ground] में  के
ऊँचा [sound] बजा के
रेड वाला [color] लगा के
नाचेंगे [hero] बन कर
Having gone to an open ground,
and played music loudly,
and applied red color,
we will become heroes and dance.
01 :16

being in a terrific mood
Let colors fly! [x2]
Hail Shiva, the Benefactor!
Today the mood is terrific
Let colors fly! [x2]
01 :51
धुन के गीले गीले सुर सुन के
बारी बारी यहाँ जम के
 जा, देसी कमर पे ठुमके उछाल दे
[in Punjabi]
[, sārē śaramānā aj chaḍ ]
ज़रा-ज़रा नशा कर के
जितनी भी है शर्म दिल से निकाल दे
After listening to the repeated, wet sounds
sprouting over there once an again
come, let’s toss up some "thumka" upon our native waists
[in Punjabi]
Everyone, forget your shyness!
Intoxicating yourselves a little by little,
remove that much shame from the heart!
02 :09
[mixing Hind and Punjabi]
अपनी ही शर्तों पे [nacaṇā]
आज रंगों से कोई नहीं [bacaṇā]
कल सुबह तक अब नहीं [thakaṇā] रे, हो
[mixing Hind and Punjabi]
We must dance on our own terms
No one must elude the colors today
Nobody must get tired until tomorrow morning, ho!
02 :16
हो, दो दो [round] लगा के
सौ सौ [pound] उड़ा के
होए, विलायती भाँग चढ़ा के
नाचेंगे [hero] बन कर
Drinking a couple of rounds,
throwing hundreds of pounds in the air
Ha! Having drank some exquisite bhang
turned into heroes, we will dance
02 :25
हो, जय जय शिव शंकर
आज [mood] है भयंकर
रंग उड़ने दो  [x2]
हम आए बन बन ठन कर 
 [mood] है भयंकर
रंग उड़ने दो  [x2]
हो, जय जय शिव शंकर
आज [mood] है भयंकर
रंग उड़ने दो  [x2]
Heil Shiva the Benefactor!
Today the mood is terrific
Let colors fly! [x2]
We shall come dressed dandily
being in a terrific mood
Let colors fly! [x2]
Heil Shiva the Benefactor!
Today the mood is terrific
Let colors fly! [x2]

Let colors fly! …
[repeated fading several times]
