Another one of my favorites!

Along with the singer’s voice, it is the lyrics which made me a huge fan of this song..







Ho jaavo ni koi mor liyavo,
ni mere naal gaya ajj lad ke,
Oh allah kare jeh aa jaave sohna,
devan jaan kadma vich dhar ke.

ho Challa beri oye buhe, Ve vatan mahi da door e,
ve jaana pehle poor e, ve gall sun challeya chora,
Ve kahda laya ee jhora.

ho challa khooh te dhariye, challa khooh te dhariyeve
gallan mooh te kariye,
ve sacche rabb ton dariye, ve gall sun challeya dhola,
Ve rabb ton kahda ee ohla.

ho challa kaaliyan mirchan, ve mohra pee ke marsaan,
ve sire tere chdsan, ve gall sun challeya dhola,
ve saad ke keeta ee kola.

ho challa nau nau theve, ve puttar mithde meve,
ve allah sabh nu deve, ve gall sun challeya kanvaan,
ve manvaan thandiyan chaanvan.

ho challa kann diyan dandian, ve saare pind vich bhandian,
ve gallan chajj paa chandian, ve gall sun challeya dhola,
ve saad ke keeta ee kola.

ho challa gal di ve gani, ve tur gaye dilan de jani
ve meri dukhan di kahani, ve aa ke sunja dhola
ve tetton khada ee ohla

ho challa paya ee gehne, oye sajan veli na rehne
oye dukh zindri de sehne, ve gal sun chalia dhola
ve kahda pana ee raula

  1. You are taking me on a emotional roller coaster , nostalgic ride Puja..

    A beautiful movie this was Long da lishkara and what a song by the ever greeen Gurdas mann.. It still does wonders today ..

    and gud you put lyrics ..

      • I so wanted to post the other song too (from the same album) – ‘Kamli yaar di kamli’.. but that would have meant spending the entire day in an endless loop of music and memories, and given my current situation at work, it is not such a good idea 🙂

        I so wish that people stop relating Punjabi music with noise and heavy beats. There is much more – the lyrics, melody, exceptional voices…so much more to experience before labeling it as vulgar.
