Bakhubi ham cho mah tabinda baashi - Jaffar Husain Khan Badauni

Recital : Qawwal Jaffar Husain Badauni
May your charming face ever shine like the full moon;
May you hold eternal sway over the domains of beauty.

Man-e darvish ra kushti baghamzah;
Karam kardi Ilahi zindah baashi.

By your amorous glance you have killed a poor man like me;
How magnanimous of you? May God give you a long life.

Jafaa kam kun ki farda roz-e mehshar;
Baru-e aashiqan sharmindah baashi.

Pray do not be cruel lest you should feel ashamed of yourself
Before your lovers on the day of judgment.

Ze qaid-e dojahan azad baasham;
Agar tu hum-nashin-e bandah baashi.

I shall be set free from the bonds of the two worlds
If you become my companion for a while.

Barindi-o bashokhi hamcho Khusrau;
Hazaran khanuman barkandah baashi.

By your wanton playfulness you must have destroyed
Thousands of hearts of lovers like that of Khusrau.
