Chalte Ho To Chaman Ko Chaliye Kahte Hain Ki Bahaaran Hai

chalte ho to chaman ko chaliye kahte hain ki baharan hai

paat hare hain phuul khile hain kam kam bad-o-baran hai

to the garden let’s repair, I’ve heard that spring is in the air

flowers bloom,leaves are green, a gentle breeze and shower fare

rang hava se yuun tapke hai jaise sharab chuvate hain

aage ho mai-khane ke niklo ahd-e-bada-gusaran hai

just like trickling wine appear colours from the air that souse

through the tavern let’s proceed, tis the season to carouse

ishq ke maidan-daron men bhi marne ka hai vasf bahut

yaani musibat aisi uthana kar-e-kar-guzaran hai

those firm in love’s field, mettle to face death possess

to face such hardships is the work of those who find success

dil hai daagh jigar hai tukde aansu saare khuun hue

lohu paani ek kare ye ishq-e-lala-azaran hai

the heart is scarred and patience rent, bloody tears now start to run

love of rose-faced beauties turns blood and water into one

kohkan o majnun ki khatir dasht-o-koh men ham na gae

ishq men ham ko ‘mir’ nihayat pas-e-izzat-daran hai

cause of Majnuu.n, Kohkan, wastelands, mountains I eschew

as lovers and their famed repute, sacrosanct I hold in view
