LYRICS

Chandan Sa Badan (Male) by Mukesh

chandan saa badan chanchal chitawan
dheere se teraa ye musakaanaa
mujhe dosh naa denaa jagawaalon
ho jaaoo agar main deewaanaa

ye kaam kamaan bhawe teree
palako ke kinaare kajaraare
maathepar sindooree suraj
hothhon pe dahakate angaare
saayaa bhee jo teraa pad jaaye
aabaad ho dil kaa wiraanaa

tan bhee sundar, man bhee sundar
too sundarataa kee murat hai
kisee aaur ko shaayad kam hogee
mujhe teree bahot jarurat hai
pahale bhee bahot dil tarasaa hai
too aaur naa dil ko tarasaanaa

Gopal ji very good attempt …felt as if you were rushing a bit ….overall a very good attempt.
Interpretation is the revenge of the intellect upon Art ………….Susan Sontag.

Very nice attempt at this classic, Gopalji. I see you are also fond of Yaman(Kalyan)! :-) I liked you sang Virana.

good effort sir, but i agree with Harshan’s excellent observation of sounding ‘a bit hurried’. these yamans need to be sung lovingly :)

Gopal ji……. hope u r doing good….

I respect you as a multi-talented personality, that is the reason it stops me to comment on any of your songs……
The feathers u have on yr cap makes u so versatile, but then dared to comment today…. come what may……

!. U have such a lovely young voice.
2. khoob surat gaaye aap ne… no one can give us replica of Mukesh or Kk’s ….we all can only try…….

Enjoyed it … and my fav’ song, still love the oldies. thanks again and keep singing.
MUSIC is the language of the soul!
