00 :29
بابو جی دِھیرے چلنا
پیار میں ذرا سنبھلتا
ہاں بڑے دھوکے ہیں
بڑے دھوکے ہیں اِس راہ میں
[all stanza x2]
بابو جی دِھیرے چلنا 
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
کیوں ہو کھوئے ہوئے سر جُھکائے
جیسے جاتے ہو سب کُچھ لٹائے
یہ تو بابو جی پہلا قدم ہے
نظر آتے ہیں اپنے پرایے
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
ہاں بڑے دھوکے ہیں
بڑے دھوکے ہیں اِس راہ میں
Yes, there are big cheaters,
there are big cheaters in this path.

there are big cheaters in this path.
Sir, you must tread carefully …
01 :51
یہ محبت ہے او بھولے بھالے
کر نہ دِل کو غموں کے حوالے
کام اُلفت کا نازُک بَہُت ہے
آ کے ہونْٹھوں پہ ٹوٹیں گے پیالے
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
ہاں بڑے دھوکے ہیں
بڑے دھوکے ہیں اِس راہ میں
Yes, there are big cheaters,
there are big cheaters in this path.

02 :36
ہو گئی ہے کِسی سے جو اَن بَن
تھامْ لے دُوسْرا کوئی دامن
زِندگانی کِہ راہیں عجب ہیں
ہو اکیلا ہے تو لاکھوں ہیں دُشمن
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
ہاں بڑے دھوکے ہیں
بڑے دھوکے ہیں اِس راہ میں
Yes, there are big cheaters,
there are big cheaters in this path.
