Nainon ki mat maaniyon re nainon ke mat suniyo (2)

Don't pay any attention to eyes, don't listen to them

Nainon ki mat suniyo re Naina thag lenge...

Eyes will cheat you

Naina thag lenge, thag lenge, naina thag lenge (2)

Jagte jaadu phoonkenge re, jagte jagte jaadu

They'll mesmerize you while you're awake

Jagte jaadu phoonkenge re neenden banjar kardenge

They'll mesmerize you while awake and destroy your sleep

Naina thag lenge...

Naina thang lenge thag lenge, naina thag lenge (2)

Nainon ki mat maaniyon re


Bhala manda dekhen na paraya na saga re

Eyes don't differentiate between good and bad, loved ones and strangers

Nainon ko toh dhasne ka chaska laga re

They just love to sting

Nainon ka zaher nasheela re (4)

Their poison is intoxicating

Badalon mein satrangiyaan boyen bhor talak barsaaven

Eyes show you rainbows in clouds which rain till morning

Badalon mein satrangiyaan boyen, naina baanvara kardenge

They'll show you rainbows and drive you mad

Naina thag lenge...

Naina thang lenge thag lenge, naina thag lenge (3)


Naina raat ko chalte chalte swargon mein lejaven

Eyes will take you to heaven at night

Megh malhar ke sapne beejen, hariyali dikhlaven

Show you dreams of rain filled clouds and greenery

Nainon ki jubaan pe bharosa nahin aata

Don't believe the word of eyes

Likhat padat na raseed na khata

There's no record, no receipt, no letter to attest what they promise

Saari baat havayi re, saari baat havayi

All their words are blown in the wind

Bin badal barsaven saavan, saavan bin barsaton

They can bring rain without clouds

Bin badal barsaven saavan, naina baanvara kardenge

They'll bring rain without clouds, they'll drive you mad

Naina thag lenge...

Naina thang lenge, thag lenge, naina thag lenge

Nainon ki mat maaniyon re nainon ke mat suniyo

Nainon ki mat suniyo re Naina thag lenge...

Jagte jaadu phoonkenge re, jagte jagte jaadu

Jagte jaadu phoonkenge re neenden banjar kardenge

Naina thag lenge... Naina thang lenge, thag lenge, naina thag lenge (4)
