Repeating verses are ommited.
In the Indian version the girl actually comes and teases each man in turn . Its not really vulgar as the girls in this movie wear the salwar and a very long dress on top . Tum to ho pardesi ( You are strangers)
Dancing girl : Bhala ( Why ? ) should I remove the ghoongat ( veil) from my mukhra ( face) , why should I remove the parda ( curtain) from my anchal ( ? shoulders) ?
Why should I lose my heart ? Why should I waste my jaan ( liver) over diljale ( jealous hearted , heartbroken) dhagaabaz ( double crossers) like you ?
47 Tum ( you) are pardesi ( strangers , foreigners) parvane ( moths ) that come here when the shaam ( evening) dhal ( descends) , that are kinchte ( pulled) chale ( walking) here
This is a 'rein basera' ( house of dancing girls ) , you spend the raat ( night) here , morning comes and you return home,
49 Koi ( some of you ) are nirmohi ( two faced) , koi bedardi ( heartless) koi rasiya ( fond of drink) koi matwala ( infatuated with me) . All of you daulatwale ( moneyed , wealthy ) but none dilwala ( true to heart).
You breathe ( dam) of 'sacha pyaar' ( true love) , make false kasme ( vows) of love . but when morning comes you return home .
Bin ( Without) phoolon ( flowers) , without rangon ( colors) , without kushboo ( fragrance ) 'mein hun ' ( I am) ik ( one ) dalee ( stem) , kitne ( how many !) ashiq ( desirers) lekin ( but ) mera ( my) daman ( lap) is Khali( empty) of love .
You in the erotic tension of the night fritter away your heart and your life .
It also has the repeat function and time display so it is a little easier to put it into a loop to do the following translation .
The follwoing comedy song where Shakti Kapoor has been wed for a few months but cant manage to be alone with his wife because she has brought her three sisters and four brothers along in the dowry and they sleep in the same room. This song is danced by the man -m , his wife Shabo f ,and the children -ch . Print it out while watching the DVD .
The song has tunes from famous movies but the lyrics have been tortured ! . Some of the tunes I couldnt identify so I am marking them unknown ( Un) and if others know what they are please say . All these translations should be saved on web sites .

Seeing these scoundrels it seems like a bush of thorns, like mountains of posion ( zahar) , like dengue fever , like scorpion garlands , like forms of demon Ravan , like bitter neem soup , like as if an enemy has put curses ( badua)

O elder sister (didi) speak please , open the lock please , that Babloo is crying , another brother is not sleeping , that Chintki is fighting , tormenting me , that Chutki is scared and see Chintku is coughing away , O sister please speak to me , please open the door .
IMO, Mehndi has some excellent songs. As a fan of the playback artiste Kavita Krishnamurthi, I would strongly recommend Tum to pardesi.
The second song in the parody is based on La Macarena, an international hit of (I think) 1996, which "inspired" two songs by Anu Malik. One of these was Dil Maaka Dina, in the film Dhaal. If memory serves, that film was notable for being held up at the censors for a whole year, before being released, and promptly disappearing without trace!

Chaiya chaiya is on another page .
South Asians watching Bollywood movies do not of course
understand all of the words of the songs as the languages
used in them include Hindi /Urdu , Punjabi , Persian ,
Arabic , Sanskrit and increasingly South Indian and others
Dil Se has a lot of Persian words and it wouldnt be
surprising if an Urdu /Persian scholar reading this thread
got really provoked into putting in a proper translation for
these songs !
The Dil Se Platinum DVD has English subtitles but not of the
songs ( the distributors do not seem to want to get to the
250m American market ) . Sound quality is perfect Dolby 5.1
but picture quality I think of Superdigital DVDs is much
Why this false pride between Superdigital and DEI ? Maybe if
they could exchange the algorithms they could each get sound
and picture perfect - and sell millions more - still waiting
for a DVD with the picture perfection of Superdigital and
sound perfection of DEI.
One annoying thing about the Dil Se DVD is that there are no
time markers so one has to mark the time below by describing
Manisha's dress color . Luckily in most songs the women
change dresses about 10 times as it is more of a fashion
parade and excellent advertisment for the dress designers -
named in the title credits .
Satrangi Re ( Seven colored one - full colors of the rainbow
) beautifully filmed in Ladakh . Manisha repeats only the
one couplet by the Urdu poet Galib - Ishq ( love) is that
firecracker which can not be lit , Galib, even if willed and
cannot be switched off when wanted.
Manisha in black
SRK: Satrangi re ( oh seven colored one) , tu (you) only you
are the satrangi , you only you are manrangi( mindcolor) .
Dil (heart) ka saya (shadow) , mind shadow , you are a noor
( beauty) , why are you so door (far) , when you are
paas(near) , I can ahsaas (feel) you , are you a khwab
(dream) or a shadow (parchai) ?
manisha in white
SRK: tell me when this mighty hawa (storm , wind) will stop?
M: Ishq cannot be controlled (forced , zor) , Galib , it is
that aatish (firecracker) which cannot be lit even when
willed , and put out when one wants to .
manisha in red
SRK : your eyes touched(chooa) me , a lightness ( halka ,
halka) came over me , the heart felt oonce ( ?) , that you
are the one who is the Khushboo ( fragarance) of (my) life
, you are my arzoo ( destination , hope) .
manisha in yellow
SRK : when your jism( body) touches ( mine) , my saans (
breathing starts sulghate ( ? glowing embers ) , my ishq
(love) gives me dilaasa ( comforts) , my dards ( hurts)
start lifting .
rpt of opening verses
manisha in dark green indoors
SRK - you only you , are the fragrance of my life , my arzoo
, you touch me with sargosh( ?) of the eyes , a mixed
silence ( khamoshi)
On the farsh ( floor) I do sajade ( prayers) , some while in
hosh ( wits about me) and some behosh ( unconcious ,
rpt of opening verses
manisha in white in the nets
SRK : In your paths ( rahon) I have become entangled . in
your bahon ( arms) I have become ulja (entangled ) let me
try and gather my wits , in your chahon (desires) I have
Manisha in purple on the plain
SRK: My living is junoon ( ?) , my dying is junoon , 'is ke
siva' ( apart from this ) there is no other skoon ( peace)

I am a remarkable woman , you wont be able to get your hands on me , teach that to your wounded heart
Female - get away from me, mad man , dont trouble me , I am going to go on tormenting you but never come in your arms , I wont even walk with you
Males - Dont pretend , start writing the story of my love life , let me kiss you , come close to me .
Female - I am a spark , a pretty girl , dont grab me like this , you wont get me with tactics like that , I have seen and met many like you , dont think so much of yourself
Male - No-one will want you as much as I do , beauty come wrap your arms round my neck

Some foreigners stole them and have flown away .
Dekha dekhi dil choor ho gaya , kuch pardesi (strnagers) choora ke ud gaye

I am coming to you , merge in your breath(senses) , take your sleep away , my prince (Raja).
