Jaga le Jazba (Ladies vs Ricky Bahl): Lyrics, Translation

Movie: Ladies vs Ricky Bahl
Music: Salim-Sulaiman
Lyrics: Amitabh Bhattahcrya
Singer: Shilpa Rao, Backing Vocals: Salim Merchant
Label: YRF Music

Kaante rehne de gulaab tod le
Neendo ki tehniyon se khwab tod le

leave the thorns and pluck the roses..
pluck the dreams from the branches of sleeps..

Khwahisho ki hai kahaniyan padi
Chun le kahaniyaan kitaab jod le
Pheeki hai zindagi toh yaara
Padh le dil ka ishaara
Saara badal de nazara
Jaga le tu Jaga le jazba hoye
Jaga le tu Jaga le jazba

There are stories of wishes lying,
choose the stories and join them into a book..
If the life is tasteless, then o my friend,
read the sign of life,
change the entire scene,
Wake up a will to do something inside you,
Get a will to do something..

Zara sa, zara sa Jaga le jazba
Zara sa, zara sa Jaga le jazba

Get a little will,
a little will..

Kya karein kya nahi
Khali khayalo mein paseena kya bahana
Behtari hai yehi
Karke dikhane ke tareeke aazmana
Jitne munh utni hi baaton mein tu naa jaana
Dil ki hi tu sun, na dil ko apni sunwana
Sapno ke pahiyon ko yaara
Speed limit na gawara
Khulli udaano ne pukara
Jaga le tu Jaga le jazba
Jaga le tu Jaga le jazba

What to do and what not,
why perspire only for thoughts..
it's better-
to try the ways to do something..
don't go for what everyone says*
listen to your heart, don't make your heart listen to you..
The wheels of dreams
don't like speed limits..
open flights called..
Get a little will,
have a little will..

Hey yeah..
Thapthapa.. tu zara
Lazy iraado ki tu sustiyaan chhuda le
Dabdaba hai tera
Raahon ki mushkilon se kushtiyaan lada le
Jo hoga so hoga hone de naa ghabrana
Tu apni koshish mein kanjoosi na kar jaana
Kismat ki lehron pe yaara
Le ke nikal tu shikara
Chamkega tera bhi sitara

Hey yeah,
pat a little..
remove the laziness of lazy intentions..
It's your domination here,
Make them (your wishes) wrestle with the problems of the way..
whatever will happen, will be seen, let it be and don't jitter..
You don't be a miser in your try..
On the waves of luck,
Go out with your boat,
Your star will shine too (you'll do well too)..

Jaga le tu Jaga le jazba
Jaga le tu Jaga le jazba
Jaga le tu Jaga le jazba
Jaga le tu Jaga le jazba

Jaga le Jaga le..

* Jitne muh utni baatein is a Hindi phrase/proverb meaning People talk, implying that we should not be worried about them. The literal meaning of the words is 'As many people, so much talks.'
