Lakdi ki Kaathi: Lyrics, Translation (Masoom)

lakadi ki kaathi kaathi pe ghoda
ghode ki dum pe jo maara hathauda
dauda dauda dauda ghoda dum utha ke dauda


a frame of wood, a horse on the frame,
when the hammer striked on the horse's tail,
ran, ran, the horse ran with its tail high..

ghoda pahuncha chauk mein chauk mein tha naai
ghodeji ki naai ne hazaamat jo banaai
takbak takbak takbak takbak
ghoda pahuncha chauk ...
dauda dauda dauda ghoda dum utha ke dauda


the horse reached the square, on the square there was a barber,
and when the barber started shaving the dear horse,
takbak takbak, takbak takbak (the sound of horse's hooves)
the horse reached the square, on the square there was a barber,
and when the barber started shaving the dear horse,
ran, ran, the horse ran with its tail high..

ghoda tha ghamandi pahuncha sabji mandi
sabji mandi baraf padi thi baraf mein lag gai thandi
dauda dauda dauda ghoda dum utha ke dauda

the horse was proud, reached the vegetable market,
in the market there was snow, in the snow it caught cold,
ran, ran, the horse ran with its tail high..


ghoda apana tagda hai dekho kitani charbi hai
chalta hai mehrauli mein par ghoda apna arabi hai
baanh chhuda ke dauda ghoda dum utha ke dauda

our horse is strong, see how much fat it has,
it walks in Mehrauli (in Delhi), but our horse is an Arabic one,
it ran releasing its arm, with the tail high..
