Aaj Jaane Ki Zid Na Karo

Standard

I was youtube surfing when I came across Asha Bhonsle’s version of the song “Aaj Jaane ki Zid Na Karo”.  I really liked the song, and liked it even more after seeing the original Farida Khanum version in “related video’s”

This song is about a woman who is telling her beloved to stay with her for longer. There’s a slight “naughty” tone to this song, rather than a sad one. I was fortunate to find the exact translation which you can read below.

As always, I recorded this song in one go using my external Lenovo mike. The beat is being kept with an upside down tissue box. I recorded the beat as a separate track and ended up reducing the volume on it. A tissue box just doesn’t have a tabla effect :P

Enjoy :) I look forward to your feedback

Lyrics and Translation

You can find the lyrics along with the English translation here

aj jaane ki zid na karo
Yunhi pehloo mein baithe raho
Aaj jaane ki zid na karo
Hai mar jaayenge, hum to lut jaayenge
Aisi baatein kiya na karo
Aaj jaane ki zid na karo

Tum hi socho zara, kyun na roke tumhe
Jaan jaati hai jab uth ke jaate ho tum
Tumko apni qasam jaan-e-jaan
Baat itni meri maan lo
Aaj jaane ki zid na karo
Yunhi pehloo mein baithe raho
Aaj jaane ki zid na karo

Waqt ki qaid mein zindagi hai magar
Chand ghadiyan yehi hain jo aazad hain
Inko khokar mere jaan-e-jaan
Umr bhar na taraste raho
Aaj jaane ki zid na karo

Kitna maasoom rangeen hai yeh sama
Husn aur ishq ki aaj mein raaj hai
Kal ki kisko khabar jaan-e-jaan
Rok lo aaj ki raat ko
Aaj jaane ki zid na karo
Yunhi pehloo mein baithe raho
Aaj jaane ki zid na karo

Translation-

Don’t insist on leaving today
Keep sitting beside me.
Don’t insist on leaving today
else I shall die, I shall be looted.
Please don’t talk like this.
Don’t insist on leaving today.

Give it a thought,
why shouldn’t stop you?
When you leave,
life goes out of me.
For your own sake, beloved
Just listen to this one plea,
don’t insist on leaving today,
keep sitting beside me.
Don’t insist on leaving today.

My life is trapped in time’s bars,
just a few solitary moments are free.
And if you lose them too, my beloved,
you shall keep craving forever.
Don’t insist on leaving today,
keep sitting beside me.
Don’t insist on leaving today.

What an innocent hueful meeting this is
of beauty and love, they rule today.
Who knows what lies in tomorrow,
Let’s make this night stand still.
Don’t insist on leaving today,
keep sitting beside me.
Don’t insist on leaving today.
