کیوں، نہ ہم تُم
چلے ٹیڑھے ميڑھے سے  راستوں پہ ننگے پانو رے
چل، بھٹک لے نہ باورے
Why not, you and I?
Walking barefoot on zigzagging roads,
come, wander away, crazy one, won't you?

کیوں، نہ ہم تُم
پھرے جا کے المَسْت پَہْچانْی راہوں کے پرے
چل، بھٹک لے نہ باورے
Why not, you and I?
Going roaming, intoxicated, beyond knowm routes,
come, wander away, crazy one, won't you?

اِن ٹِمْٹِماتی نگاہوں میں
اِن چَمْچَماتی اداؤں میں
لُکْے ہوئے، چھپے ہوئے
ہیں کیا خیال
[movie scenes follow]
In these glimmering looks,
in these sparkling gestures,
concealed, hidden,
what thoughts are there?
[movie scenes follow]

ملتے ہے یوں
ہر ایک ڈگر جانے کیوں
کیسی یہ دُھن ہے
اچّھا ہے بُرا کیا شَگَُن ہے
بتا کہاں ہے تیرا گاؤں رے
چلا جا سنگ باورے
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!

سن کَھنْکَھناتی ہے زِندگی
لے، ہمیں بُلاتی ہے زِندگی
جو کرنا ہے وُہ آج کر
نہ اِس کو ٿال باورے
Listen, life is jingling
Do, as life is calling out for us
whatever must be done today,
don't postpone it, crazy one!

کیوں، نہ ہم تُم
چلے زِندگی کے نشے میں ہی دُھت سَرْپِھرے
چل، بھٹک لے نہ باورے
Why not, you and I?
Walking intoxicated with life, just mad-drunk,
come, wander away, crazy one, won't you?
03 :24
کیوں، نہ ہم تُم
تلاشیں باغِیچَوں میں فُرصت بھری چھاؤں میں
چل بھٹک لے نہ باورے
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?

اِن گُنگُناتی فِضاؤں میں
اِن سَرْسَراتی ہواؤں میں
دُکُر دُکُر یوں دیکھے کیا
کیا تیرا حال باورے
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.
