Poora London Thumakda Lyrics Translation [Queen]

Movie: Queen
Music: Amit Trivedi
Lyrics: Anvita Dutt
Singers: Labh Janjua, Sonu Kakkar, Neha Kakkar

Tu ho gayi one to two
Oh kudiye what to do
Oh ho gayi munde di
Tu turu turu ru.

You've gone two from one [as in, you're getting married, so it'll be two of you now.]
O girl, what to do?
You've now become the guy's..

Patangaan vargi
Tu ainvai udd di
Oh ho gayi munde di
Tu turu turu turu

Like a kite,
you fly just like that,
You've now become the guy's..

Heellan de chaldi, Tuk tuk tu kardi
Make up tu kardi yaar
Angrezi padhdi, git-pit tu kardi
Jimme queen saddi Victoria

You walk with heels, making tuk-tuk sound,
and wear make up..
You read English, and talk in English
[gitpit is used when someone speaks English fast and you can't understand it.]
like our queen Victoria..

Tu ghanti big ben di
Poora London thumakda
Oh jaddo nachche pehn di
Poora London thumakda..

You're the bell of big ben
[Trivia: Big Ben actually means the bell only, though the name's usage is generally extended to the clock and tower as well.]
Entire London dances..
When you dance O dear,
the whole London dances.
[pehn di is again a swear word, but is here said in a loving way, to express surprise.]

Haaye.. haaye..

LaTTe di chaadar
Utte honeymoon kar maahiya
Aavo saamne, aavo saamne
Tera ki size hai das mahiya

On the woollen sheet,
have your honeymoon, O dear..
Come in front of me,
and tell what's your size, O dear..

Malmal da kurda
Dikh jaaye sab kuchh clear mahiya
Tere saamne, tere saamne
Lagda hai chhotta palang mahiya

Under the silk shirt
everything can be seen clear, O dear,
In front of you,
the bed looks small, O dear..

Oh Siyappa..

O damn..

Oye hoye hoye.. death hi ho gayi..

O it's just killing..

Loudspeaker te, Madonna vajdi ho Like a virgin
Aithe utthe kende
* phail karde, kabootar vargi
O Mema phirdi, gutar goon kardi
Gulabi sher da, rang hai firangi
Rakhi tu saanv ke aa
Saanu te lagta, sautaal to changi
Jagaah koi nahi hai badiya

On the loudspeaker, Madonna is being played ‘Like A Virgin’
They say here and there..
Like a pigeon doing *,
Madam roams around, chattering [the word used is gutar-goon, which expresses the sound of a pigeon, and also used for flirting.]
The color of pink lion is foreign.. [talks about the groom here]
Keep him carefully..
I feel that there is no better place
than sautaal**

Thumakda thumakda London thumakda
O waah ji waah..
Tunakda tunakda, Tumba tunakda..

Dances, dances, London dances.
O wow.
sounds O sounds, the tumba sounds..

[Tumba is a string based musical instrument.]

Brilliant effort my friend you can make following corrections to the lyrics

Loudspeaker te, Madonna vajdi ho Like a virgin
Aithe utthe kende,
te, Kabootar vargi, O Mema phirdi, gutar goon kardi
Gulabi shade da, rang hai firangi
Rakhi tu saanv ke aa
Saanu te lagta, Southall to changi
Jagaah koi nahi hai badiya

On the loudspeaker, Madonna is being played ‘Like A Virgin’
They say around here and there,

Like a pigeon,Madam roams around at , chattering
[the word used is gutar-goon, which expresses the sound of a pigeon, and also used for flirting.]
The color of pink shade like foreigner .. [talks about the groom here]
Keep him carefully..
I feel that there is no better place than Southall

Sir Pe Gilassi Rakh

Lassi Da Gilaas Khich

London dances with the whiskey glass on head
London dances in Punjabi style
London dance drinking glass of Lassi (Means everyone is dancing whether drunk or not)

I think for these lines

te, Kabootar vargi, O Mema phirdi, gutar goon kardi

the following corrections can be made -

Trafalgar te, Kabootar Vargi..

Trafalgar square has a lot of pigeons so it could be a reference to that.

i think some lines are missing between these stanzas.
Loudspeaker te, Madonna vajdi ho Like a virgin
Aithe utthe kende
* phail karde, kabootar vargi
O Mema phirdi, gutar goon kardi
Gulabi sher da, rang hai firangi
Rakhi tu saanv ke aa
Saanu te lagta, sautaal to changi
Jagaah koi nahi hai badiya

Tu Kanti Big Ban Di
Poora London Thumakda
Oh Jaddo Nachche Pehn Di
Poora London Thumakda (x2)

Sir Pe Gilassi Rakh

Thumakda Thumakda

It's "Trafalgar te, o mema firdi, kabootar vargi". Trafalgar square is a tourist attraction in London.
