Baat Meri Kabhi Suni Hi Nahin

baat meri kabhi suni hi nahin

jante vo buri bhali hi nahin

she never did listen to me

twixt bad and good she cannot see

dil-lagi un ki dil-lagi hi nahin

ranj bhi hai faqat hansi hi nahin

her love’s not only fun and games

there’s sorrow too, not joy merely

lutf-e-mai tujh se kya kahun zahid

haae kam-bakht tu ne pi hi nahin

you’ve never drunk o hapless priest

the joys of wine how will you see

ud gai yuun vafa zamane se

kabhi goya kisi men thi hi nahin

as though, in none, did ever dwell

this world has shed fidelity

jaan kya duun ki janta huun main

tum ne ye chiiz le ke di hi nahin

why should I give my life I know

this thing she takes and does not free

ham to dushman ko dost kar lete

par karen kya tiri khushi hi nahin

my rival, even, I’d befriend

what could I do you didn’t agree

ham tiri aarzu pe jiite hain

ye nahin hai to zindagi hi nahin

I just exist in hope of you

sans hope there is no life for me

dil-lagi dil-lagi nahin naseh

tere dil ko abhi lagi hi nahin

Preacher, love is not a game

It hasn’t touched your heart I see

‘dagh’ kyuun tum ko bevafa kahta

vo shikayat ka aadmi hi nahin

why should I say you are untrue?

complaining’s not my style you see
