a fabric, a fabric,

and even raindrops don't keep away here.

The whole world is involved in an intrigue;

every single particle has this entreaty:

Oh, beloved!

The glances speak, the world speaks

the tongue of the heart,

ah, the tongue of the heart.

Love begs and love desires some typhoon.

Thread carefully, it is a new love;

this is the first time I have made a promise

Oh, beloved!  [x3]

Beloved  oh, beloved!

Barefoot on embers,

I used to walk,

ah, I used to walk.

It seems that I used to be raised

among strangers!

Take me where yor country is,

this ignorant world is my enemy

Oh, beloved! [x6]

O Re Piyaa (Hindi: ओ रे पिया, Urdu: و رے پیا) "Oh, Beloved!", is a song of the 2007 Indian dance film "Aaja Nachle".

The video clip plays an abridged version of the original soundtrack.
It shows Dia, a successful dancer and choreographer, remembering her times as a dance student in her small homeland town, and later breaking her arranged engagement and eloping with a foreign photographer she fell in love with.

Dia's role is played by the legendary Indian dancer, actress, and producer Madhuri Dixit.

The song is interpreted by the famous Pakistani ghazal singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan (although it grammatically expresses the point of view of a woman).

The lyrics were written by the Indian composer duo Salim-Sulaiman, and the music was composed by the Indian song and screenwriters Jaideep Sahni and Piyush Mishra.
