A Song in Foreign Tongue: SB John – Tu Jo Naheen (Pakistan)

4/28/2012

Greetings,

I really enjoyed the first post in this new section.  Thank you!  I would like to suggest this song from Pakistan, one of my all time favorites.  It is an older piece, a romantic love song, sung by a popular singer who first rose to fame for his annual appearance at Christmas  time on Pakistani TV singing Christmas carols.  That was a bygone era!

Here is the video:



Below is a transliteration followed by my humble attempt at an
approximate translation.  Hope FFI readers will enjoy :-)

==================================
Tu jo naheen hai to kuchh bhee naheen hai
Ye maana ke mehfil jawan hai haseen hai

Nigahoan mein tu hai ye dil jhoomta hai
Na janay mohabbat ki rahoan mein kya hai
Jo tu hum safar hai to kuchh gham naheen hai

Ye maana ke mehfil jawan hai haseen hai

Tu jo naheen hai to kuchh bhee naheen hai

Wo Aa yein na Aa yein jami hain nigahain
Sitaroan nay deikhi hain jhuk jhuk kay rahain
Ye dil bud gumaan hai nazar ko yaqeen hai

Ye maana kay mehfil jawan hai haseen hai

Tu jo naheen hai to kuchh bhee naheen hai

==================================

When you are afar my love, nothing lifts my despair,
Though serenaded am I, with companions, so young, so fair.

Oh how my heart throbs when you capture my gaze,
What, o what, lies ahead, my love, in this enchanted love maze.

Vanished are my sorrows, only with you when I travel,
Though serenaded am I, with company so young, so desirable.

When will you come, when again will you be with me?
The stars above, stoop to blaze your trail to me.

Lost is my heart, my eyes seek only thee,
Though serenaded am I, with oh so young, oh so pretty.

===================================

Sincerely,

A Murtadd.
