Tumba Tumba (Patiala House): Lyrics, Translation, Meanings

Ajj muddattan baad hai miliyan
Totabra diyan yeh galiyan
Ajj milan aaye yahan pe rajj ke
Munde te kudiyan, chhutiyan chhutiyan, phuljadiyan
Tumba tumba tudak gaya


Main kya ji rehan do na

Today after ages we've got
these streets of ----,
Today are there gathered
the boys and girls of The Raj, small, (like) sparklers,
and the tumba goes out of tune...

O I say let it be...

Mere ghar ke ladke, sabse hain ji badke
Mere ghar ki kudiyan, mishri ki gudiyan
Kaise yeh sach ab hum sunaayen
Hum kaise yeh bataayen
Dar ke ji dulha bhaag na jaaye
Tumba tumba tudak gaya
Jo, koi inpe ludak gaya
Tumba tumba tudak gaya
Jo, koi inpe ludak gaya
Yeh gaya, woh gaya
Tumba, tumba tumba tudak gaya

The boys of my house, are ahead of all,
The girls of my house, are dolls of sugar,
now how do we tell this truth,
how do we say this,
lest the groom runs away..
(like a) tumba went out of tune,
if someone fell for them..
went like this, went like that,
Tumba, (like a) tumba went out of tune..

Woh morni ke jaise chaal, maardi hulaare
Paas jab aao to ji, raaz yeh khula re
Chhati chaudi kadd se lambe, munde hai yeh saare
Paas jab aao to ji, raaz yeh khulaare
Khopdi mein inke ji bhusa hai bhara re

The walk like a peahen, gives a kick,
When u come nearby, this secret is revealed,
Broad chest, good height, have all these boys,
When u come nearby, this secret is revealed,
In their heads, only straw is there (there's no brain),

Kaise yeh sach ab hum sunaayen
Hum kaise yeh bataayen
Darr ke ji dhula bhaag na jaayen
Tumba tumba tudak gaya
Jo, koi inpe ludak gaya
Tumba tumba tudak gaya
Koi inpe ludak gaya
Yeh gaya, woh gaya
Tumba tumba tumba tudak gaya


Mere ghar mein bas ek munda desi jatt hai
desi ghee ki dhaar sa, aisa mer putt hai
Wohi chup chaap kare jo main kawan, jo main kawan
Wohi har baar kare jo main kawan, jo main kawan
desi jawan dilwala, zubaan pe iske taala
Iski wafa ne jadoo dala

In my home only there is a Jat boy,
Like the stream of desi ghee*, such is my son,
he does silently whatever I say, whatever I say,
he does every time whatever I say, whatever I say,
country's (Indian) big hearted youth, with his mouth locked (in respect)
his love has created a spell..

Tumba tumba, hoye hoye hoye
Tumba tumba, hoye tumba
Tumba tumba tudak gaya
Jo, koi inpe ludak gaya
Tumba tumba tudak gaya
Jo, koi inpe ludak gaya
Yeh gaya, woh gaya
Tumba tumba tumba tudak gaya
Tumba tumba tudak gaya, tumba tumba tudak gaya
