A SONG NO BOLLYWOOD STARLET WILL EVER CROON

     After translating too many songs featuring the same tired lyrics (I'll hide you in my eyelashes, can't live with you, you've stolen my peace, etc.), we began to wonder: is there any room left for true originality? Here are the lyrics to a song that we can promise you won't be hearing on a Bollywood soundtrack any time soon...

 

  UFF YEH KYA HUA MUJHE

uff yeh kya hu'aa mujhe Ugh, what's this that has happened to me?
yeh kya hu'aa mujhe phir se hu'aa mujhe What's this that has happened to me yet again? Again it's happened!
jahaa.n bhii dekhuu.n mai.n tumhii ko paa'uu.n Wherever I look, I find only you,
chaahe baazaar "disco" yaa "P.O." jaa'uu.n whether I go to the market, the disco, or the P.O.
mera piichha kyo.n karte ho Why are you following me?
bekaar aashaa karte ho You've got no chance.
mere sapno.n me.n tum nahii.n aate I don't see you in my dreams;
mere chain ko tum nahii.n churaate you don't steal my peace.
mujhe nii.nd har raat jaldii se aatii hai I fall asleep each night very quickly,
aur sote sote bahut hii mazaa aata hai and I get great pleasure from it.
tere li'e nahii.n roz sa.nwartii huu.n mai.n I don't get dressed up each day because of you;
"fashion" hai isli'e aisa kartii huu.n mai.n I do it because it's the fashion.
tere samajh me.n kyo.n nahii.n aata yeh Why don't you understand this?
tujhe dekhkar mera dost tera mazaak uRaata hai When my friend sees you, she calls you an idiot.
tuu sachmuch "stupid" hai ya koii "stalker" hai Are you really stupid, or are you a stalker?
besharm hai yaa apne aapko "hero" sochta hai Are you shameless, or do you think yourself a hero?
mujhe koii farak to nahii.n paRta rapaT likhwaa duu.ngii Makes no difference to me; I'm filing a report!
tujhe palko.n me.n nahii.n qaid me.n chupaa'uu.ngii I'll hide you not in my eyelashes, but in prison!
uff yeh kya hu'aa mujhe Ugh, what's this that has happened to me?
yeh kya hu'aa mujhe phir se hu'aa mujhe What's this that has happened to me yet again? Again it's happened!
mera piichha kyo.n karte ho Why are you following me?
bekaar aashaa karte ho You've got no chance.
mere sapno.n me.n tum nahii.n aate I don't see you in my dreams;
mere chain ko tum nahii.n churaate you don't steal my peace.
mujhe nii.nd har raat jaldii se aatii hai I fall asleep each night very quickly,
aur sote sote bahut hii mazaa aata hai and I get great pleasure from it.
tum zaruur sabse judaa ho is shahar me.n You're definitely unique in this city,
aur yeh bhii ho sakta hai ki saare duniya me.n and it's also possible that in the whole world,
tere jaise koii "idiot" nahii.n... there's no idiot like you...
aakhir sach hai ki Sanjay aur Raahul ne bhii sataaya After all, it's true that Sanjay and Rahul also annoyed me,
par bhaag gaye jab mai.n ne "Daddy" ko bulaaya but they ran away when I called Daddy.
tere bina jiite hu'e aTHaarah saal ho gaye hai.n I've been living without you for eighteen years,
aur tere bina aasaanii se jiya karuu.ngii mai.n and I'll quite easily keep living without you.
mera dil dhaRakta hai mamii-paapa kii vajah se My heart beats because of my parents (giving birth to me);
sirf sirdard ubharta hai terii to vajah se on your account, the only thing that pounds is my head.
yeh kya hu'aa mujhe What's this that has happened to me?
yeh kya hu'aa mujhe phir se hu'aa mujhe What's this that has happened to me yet again? Again it's happened to me!
mera piichha kyo.n karte ho Why are you following me?
bekaar aashaa karte ho You've got no chance.
mere sapno.n me.n tum nahii.n aate I don't see you in my dreams;
mere chain ko tum nahii.n churaate you don't steal my peace.
mujhe nii.nd har raat jaldii se aatii hai I fall asleep each night very quickly,
aur sote sote bahut hii mazaa aata hai and I get great pleasure from it
uff yeh kya hu'aa mujhe Ugh, what's this that has happened to me?
yeh kya hu'aa mujhe phir se hu'aa mujhe What's this that has happened to me yet again? Again it's happened!
