Kaisi Paheli Zindagani & A Kiss to Build A Dream On

Standard

When the song Kaisi Paheli Zindagani came out, there was a buzz that it was a copy of the song “A Kiss to Build a Dream on” by Louis Armstrong. I personally love both songs and saw their similarities as a great opportunity to put these together :) Thank you to my sister Sneha for the videography!

Kaisi Paheli Zindagani
Original Singer: Sunidhi Chaudan
Movie: Parineetha
Music Director: Shanthanu Moitra

Lyrics
Nayi nahin nayi ye baatein ye baatein hain puraani
kaisi paheli hai yeh kaisi paheli zindagaani

thaama haan roka isko kisne haan yeh to behta paani
kaisi paheli hai yeh kaisi paheli zindagaanipi le isse, is mein nashaa
jisne piyaa voh gham mein bhi hasaapal mein hasaaye aur pal mein rulaaye yeh kahaani
kaisi paheli hai yeh kaisi paheli zindagaaniaankhon mein gair sapna nayaa
aansu tera ek moti hai banaa

suuri tagar pe jaise suuri yeh chaanv ho suhaani
kaisi paheli hai yeh kaisi paheli zindagaani

Translation (By Hindilyrics.net)
None of this is new; no, this is all old talk
of what a riddle, what a riddle life is!

Who ever managed to stop its eternal flow?

Drink it slowly; it’s a powerful intoxicant!
He who has drunk of it knows laughter even in grief.

It’s a story that makes you laugh and cry in the space of an instant.
What a riddle, what a riddle this life is!

A strange dream in your eyes;
your tear has made a pearl.

Like sun blocked by a shield, how lovely and restful is this shadow!
What a riddle, what a riddle this life is!

A Kiss to Build A Dream On
Original Singer: Louis Armstrong

Lyrics
Give me a kiss to build a dream on
And my imagination will thrive upon that kiss
Sweetheart, I ask no more than this
A kiss to build a dream on

Give me a kiss before you leave me
And my imagination will feed my hungry heart
Leave me one thing before we part
A kiss to build a dream on
