جھوم جھومتا تُو
You Rock and Sway
00 :48
کیوں دُوریاں ہیں درمیان
بڑھ جانے دے نزدیکیاں
ہر سانس میں مَحْسُوس کر
اِن سانسوں کی مدہوشیاں
Why are there distances in between?
Let our nearness be increased
Having felt, in each breath,
the intoxication of these breaths …

میرا نشہ ایسے چڑھے، میرا نشہ ضِد پہ اَڑْے
میرا نشہ ایسے نچائے، جھوم جھوم جھوم
جھومتا تُو جا 
My intoxication takes effect in such a way, it refuses to stop
My intoxication makes you dance, rock, sway, in such a way
sway continuously …

جِس آگ میں یہ بدن جل رہا ہے میرا، اے ہم سفر
تُو بھی اُسی میں جل جائے گا / جائے گا
پروانے کیوں کر شمع پہ مچلتے ہیں
تُجھ کو آج پِھر
اسکا پتہ بھی چل جائے گا
The fire in which this body is of mine burns, oh companion
You will burn in that too / will burn
Why do moths insist upon the flame?
Today you, in turn,
are going to know as well
02 :15
میں ہی شَہْد میں ہی زَہْر
مُجھ میں تیرے شام و سَحَر
میرے اِن پَناہوں میں آ کر، جھوم جھوم جھوم
جھومتا تُو جا 
I am poison, I am honey
In me are your days and nights
Once come into my shelter, you sway, rock, sway
sway continuously …
02 :58
میں بھی ہوُں تَنْہا ہے تُو بھی اکیلا ہے
مَوقَع بھی حسین
ملنے کا ہونے دے سِلْسِلَہ، سِلْسِلَہ
بِن کُچھ کہے کُچھ سُنے کُچھ کئے
کب تُجھ پہ مر گئی
مجھ کو پتہ بھی نہ یہ چَلَن
I am apart, and you, you are alone too
Indeed, a divine opportunity!
Let the chain of events to encounter happen
without saying, listening, or doing anything
until I (die) fall for you
Even I don't know this behavior myself!
03 :25
لو مر گئے ہم بے قُصُور
وُہ جی گئے جِن کا قُصُور
آنکھوں سے میری جان لے کر، جھوم جھوم جھوم
جھومتا تُو جا 
See now, how we die (fall in love) sinless
living that which belogns to sin
Having taken the life from my eyes, sway, rock, sway
sway continuously …

Jhoom Jhoomta Tu (Hindi: झूम झूमता तू, Urdu: جھوم جھومتا تُو) "You Rock and Sway", is a song played in the 2012 Bollywood action thriller "Players".

The song has a male version, sung by Arijit Singh, and a female version, sung by Ritu Pathak.

The male version is also titled "Jhoom Jhoomta Hoon Main", and both versions are sometimes known as "Kyun Duriyan", due to the common first words of the lyrics.

The movie, which is a heist film inspired by the 2003 US film "The Italian Job", describes the adventures of a band of thieves to steal a big gold shipment.

At some point in the movie, one of the band's members, Spider (played by Neil Nitin Mukesh) betrays the rest and runs away with the booty.
Another of the band members, Charlie (Abishek Bachchan), convinces Naina (Sonam Kapoor ) the daughter of a former associate, to infiltrate Spider's house and locate the treasure with the help of electronic devices.

The song is played while Naina performs a seductive dance in front of Spider, in order to distract him, while Charlie and the rest of the band members surveil the dance remotely via a hidden camera.

The song's lyrics were written Ashish Pandit and the music was composed by Pritam.
