TU KAHAN YE BATAA
Lyrics & Chords
An enchanting song by Rafi saheb from the movie “Tere Ghar Ke Samne” (1963) starring Dev Anand and Nutan. It’s picturised on Dev saheb, and Nutan comes in now and then. The music was by S.D.Burman and lyrics were by Hasrat Jaipuri.
Here is my version/rendition.

Tu Kahaan, Ye Bata, Is Nasheelee Raat Mein
(Where are you lost, tell me, in this intoxicating night)
Maane Na Mera Dil Deewaana
(My passionate heart will not listen to reason)
Haay Re, Maane Na Mera Dil Deewaana
He, Bada Natkhat Hai Sama
(see, the mischievous surroundings)
Har Nazaara Hai Jawaan
(Beautiful sights everywhere)
Chha Gaya Chaaron Taraf, Meri Aahon Ka Dhuaan
(Everything is enveloped in all directions in the clouds of my sighs)
Dil Mera, Meri Jaan, Na Jalaa Tu Kahaan….
(Spare my heart, my Love, don’t make it miserable, where are you…)
Ho, Aai Jab Thandi Hawa
(Oh, when the cold breeze blew)
Maine Poochha Jo Pata
(When I asked for your whereabouts)
Vo Bhi Katrake Gai, Aur Bechain Kiya
(The breeze slipped past me, agitated me even more)
Pyar Se, Tu Mujhe, De Sada Tu Kahaan….
(Lovingly, call out to me, where are you …)
He, Chand Taaron Ne Suna
(The moon and the stars heard it)
In Bahaaron Ne Suna
(These pleasant spring times heard me)
Dard Ka Raag Mera, Rehguzaron Ne Suna
(My cry of pain, the busy pathways heard it)
Tu Bhi Soon, Jaaneman, Aa Bhi Jaa Tu Kahaan….
(You too hear it, my life, it’s about time you came, where are you…)
