The famous ghazal of Faiz keeps getting more mainstream and more popular by the day. After being sung by Mehdi Hassan and Jagjit Singh, the ghazal has been in Bollywood too, though in the form of a song with just the Mukhda borrowed from the original [Mohit Chauhan/KK, Film: Sikandar]. This time it's none other than Vishal Bhardwaj composing it for Arijit Singh to sing. A slow track, it begins with a sher in between and then comes to the beginning. Expect that to be Gulzar Sahab's way.
Movie: Happy New Year
Lyrics: Farah Khan, Vishal, Shekhar
Singers: Mika Singh

In the song, every single line except the title is a Hindi proverb translated literally. However, the meanings of these proverbs are of course, proverbial, and should not be literal. So instead of translating the song literally, I am writing the Hindi proverb that is translated here, and giving it's original meaning.
Dance not coming, courtyard crooked Proverb: Naach na Jaane Aangan Tedha
Meaning: When you don't know something, you try to blame something else.
