Hindi Lyrics English Translation
Pardesi oh pardesi... Stranger from a foreign land, oh stranger from a foreign land...
Meetha sa chaddha hai bukhar, tere main thara pardesi A sweet fever is rising in me, I belong to you, oh stranger...
Oh pardesi, oh pardesi,
Ramji karey beda par, tere main
thara pardesi...
Let God Rama bear the weight of my
troubles, I belong to you, o stranger
Waqt ne kar dala bantadhaar,

 

Ib ke hovaka rey agge yaar...

Time has ruined me completely

 

What will happen in the future,
dear one...

Mann bawri bawri bujhsa lagey,
Kabhi ituk doley, kabhi oot zakey
The heart seems to be flickering slowly,
It hops here sometimes & sometimes
it eavesdrops somewhere else...
Oh pardesi, oh pardesi, nainon me
sapne hazaar, tere main thara,
pardesi...
Oh stranger, I have a thousand
dreams, I belong to you, o stranger
Lagey meetha meetha chadhaya
bukhar, Ishq mushq na chuppe
baware yaar...
Seems like the sweet fever is rising in
you, Love-Shmove is hard to hide my
naive friend
Dil ki takhti pe naam likha tera Laila,
Qatil aankhon pe zulfo ka saje hai
pehra
The throne of my heart is reserved for
you, Laila, her killer eyes are guarded
by the bridal veil of her hair...
Hua pardesi, hua pardesi I have become a stranger in my own
land, o I have become a foreigner
Meetha sa chaddha hai bukhar, tere
main thara pardesi...
A sweet fever is rising in me since the
time I met you, oh stranger from a
foreign land...
Ramji karo beda par, tere main thara
pardesi...
Let God Rama bear the weight of my
troubles, I belong to you o stranger
