क्यूँ
Why?
00 :14
क्यूँ,  हम तुम
चले टेढ़े-मेढ़े से  रास्तों पे नंगे पाँव रे
चल, भटक ले  बावरे
Why not, you and I?
Walking barefoot on zigzagging roads,
come, wander away, crazy one, won't you?
00 :29
क्यूँ,  हम तुम
फिरे जा के अलमस्त पहचानी राहों के परे
चल, भटक ले  बावरे
Why not, you and I?
Going roaming, intoxicated, beyond knowm routes,
come, wander away, crazy one, won't you?
00 :44
इन टिमटिमाती निगाहों में
इन चमचमाती अदाओं में
लुके हुए, छुपे हुए
हैं क्या ख़याल
[movie scenes follow]
In these glimmering looks,
in these sparkling gestures,
concealed, hidden,
what thoughts are there?
[movie scenes follow]
02 :29
मिलते है यूँ
हर एक डगर जाने क्यूँ
कैसी यह धुन है
अच्छा है बुरा क्या शगुन है
बता कहाँ है तेरा गाँव रे
चला जा संग बावरे
It is meeting (me) like this
every single path, who knows why
What perseverance is this?
The omen is bad or good?
Oh, tell where your village is!
Go with me, crazy one!
02 :51
सुन खनखनाती है ज़िंदगी
ले, हमें बुलाती है ज़िंदगी
जो करना है वह आज कर
 इस को टाल बावरे
Listen, life is jingling
Do, as life is calling out for us
whatever must be done today,
don't postpone it, crazy one!
03 :08
क्यूँ,  हम तुम
चले ज़िंदगी के नशे में ही धुत सरफिरे
चल, भटक ले  बावरे
Why not, you and I?
Walking intoxicated with life, just mad-drunk,
come, wander away, crazy one, won't you?
03 :24
क्यूँ,  हम तुम
तलाशें बग़ीचों में फ़ुर्सत भरी छाँव में
चल भटक ले  बावरे
Why not, you and I?
Let's search in the the gardens, the rest in my shade.
Come, wander away, crazy one, won't you?
03 :39
इन गुनगुनाती फ़िज़ाओं में
इन सरसराती हवाओं में
टुकुर-टुकुर यूँ देखे क्या
क्या तेरा हाल बावरे
In these murmuring airs
In these hissing breezes
Why/what are you staring in such way?
What is your condition (how are you), crazy one?

Kyon (Hindi:क्यूँ, Urdu: کیوں) "Why" is a song from the 2012 Bollywood film "Barfi".

The song (whose lyrics are longer and somewhat different than those used in the video clip) was written by Neelesh Misra, and the music was composed by Pritam.

The video clip depicts scenes of the movie where the main male protagonist, Barfi (Ranbir Kapoor), who is deaf-mute, and the female protagonist, Jhilmil (Priyanka Chopra), who us autistic, embark in a kidnapping situation but end up attached to each other.

A third character, police officer Sudhanshu Dutta (the actor Saurabh Shukla) chases them and provides a comical counterpoint.

The playback singer is Papon.
