Kaisi Paheli Hai Yeh Zindagani - Lyrics & Translation




Lyrics 

Nayi nahin hain ye baatein ye baatein hain puraani 
Haan kaisi paheli hai yeh kaisi paheli zindagaani 
Thaamo haan roka isko kisne haan yeh to behta paani 
Haan kaisi paheli hai yeh kaisi paheli zindagaani 

Dhire pee, is mein hai nashaa 
Jisne piyaa voh gam mein bhi hasaa 
Pal mein hasaaye aur pal mein rulaaye yeh kahaani 
Haan kaisi paheli hai yeh kaisi paheli zindagaani 

Aankhon mein gair sapna nayaa 
Aansu tera ek moti hai banaa 
Sooni dagar pe jaise sooni yeh chaanv ho suhaani 
Haan kaisi paheli hai yeh kaisi paheli zindagaani 

नयी नहीं नयी ये बातें ये बातें हैं पुरानी 
हाँ कैसी पहेली है यह कैसी पहेली ज़िंदगानी 
थामो हाँ रोका इसको किसने हाँ यह तो बहता पानी 
हाँ कैसी पहेली है यह कैसी पहेली ज़िंदगानी 

धीरे पी, इस में है नशा 
जिसने पीया वो गम में भी हॅसा 
पल में हंसाये और पल में रुलाये ये कहानी 
हाँ कैसी पहेली है ये कैसी पहेली ज़िंदगानी 

आँखों में गैर सपना नया 
आंसू तेरा एक मोती है बना 
सूनी डगर पे जैसे सूनी ये छाँव हो सुहानी 
हाँ कैसी पहेली है ये कैसी पहेली ज़िंदगानी 

Understanding "Riddle" in English 


Translation 

No, none of these are new, all these are old dictums 
Ya, what a problem, this life is nothing but a problem. 
Halt it, but who could, its a water that flows at random 
Ya, what a problem, this life is nothing but a problem. 

Drink slowly, its toxic 
Whoever drunk, smiled even in grief. 
This flash we laugh next flash it makes us cry, its such a fiction 
Ya, what a problem, this life is nothing but a problem. 

In your eyes there are strange new dreams 
Your tear has made a pearl which gleams 
Alike a lonely shade on a lonely road, so lovesome 
Ya, what a problem, this life is nothing but a problem.

Riddle

No, none of these are new, all these are old fable 
Oh yeah, what a riddle, this life is what a riddle! 
Hold it, but who could, it's a water that flows so casually 
Oh yeah, what a riddle, this life is what a riddle! 

Drink slowly, its toxic 
Whoever drunk, smiled even in grief. 
This flash we laugh next flash it makes us cry, its such a fable 
Oh yeah, what a riddle, this life is what a riddle!

In your eyes there are strange new dreams 
Your tear has made a pearl which gleams 
Alike a lonely shade on a lonely road, so delectable 
Oh yeah, what a riddle, this life is what a riddle!
