Chale jaana zaraa thehro

As I was casually humming tumhaare gin guzaare hai, Papu said it sounded so much like this song that I'd never heard of. He knew of the song and film so it was really easy to search for it and listen to it. What a lovely song it is... I haven't listened to much of Sharda's singing except for her "titli udi", that too I didn't really know her name, so it was a pleasant surprise to find this duet of hers with Mukesh.

Absolutely love SJ music and adore the fact that the song has four complete stanzas... mazaa aa gayaa! I'm also hooked on the other song from same film with the same singers "duniya ki sair kar lo". It'd be awesome to find out what raag this song is based on.

It's so much fun to see different parts of world in these songs. In this one, I think it's Niagara Falls.


M: (chale jaana zaraa thehro kisi kaa dum nikaltaa hai
yeh manzar dekh kar jaana) (2)

F: chale jaana zaraa thehro kisi kaa dum nikaltaa hai
yeh manzar dekh kar jaana chale jaana

M: abhi aaye ho baitho to yeh mausam bhi suhaana hai (2)
abhi to haal-e-dil tum ko nigaahon se sunaana hai
nazar pyaasi yeh dil pyaasa kisi ka dum nikaltaa hai
yeh manzar dekh kar jaana chale jaana

F: haseen jharanon ke saaye mein akelaa chhod jaate ho (2)
hamaare dil ko aakhir kis liye tum tod jaate ho
zaraa dum lo kahaa maano kisi ka dum nikaltaa hai
yeh manzar dekh kar jaana chale jaana

M: hamaari jaan ho tum bhi agar chal di to phir kyaa hai (2)
tumhaare bin bahaaron mein khushi kyaa hai mazaa kyaa hai (the tunes here remind me of "tum se pyaar hai" of yeh meraa prempatra)
o jaan-e-man na jaao tum kisi ka dum nikaltaa hai
yeh manzar dekh kar jaana chale jaana

F: kasam khaati hoon main apni tumhe ab na sataaungi (2)
tumhaari baat jo bhi ho wohi main maan jaaungi
bhari aankhen ruki saansen? kisi ka dum nikaltaa hai
yeh manzar dekh kar jaana
chale jaana zaraa thehro kisi kaa dum nikaltaa hai
yeh manzar dekh kar jaana

M: chale jaana zaraa thehro kisi kaa dum nikaltaa hai
yeh manzar dekh kar jaana chale jaana

Hmm... I never really paid too much attention to this song. Now with your perspective for crutches, I should be able to connect to it better. Thank you :)
