Atul’s Song A Day- A choice collection of Hindi Film & Non-Film Songs

Bure bhi ham bhale bhi ham… ham hain Banarasi babu

Posted on: July 8, 2009


The movie as well as this song from the movie lies forgotten today, but this song from “Banarasi Babu” (1973) was quite popular those days.

this song in fact is the title song of the as well as the introduction song of the hero. Dev saab the hero announces by this song that he is Banarasi Babu.

This song may not have gone on to become as popular as some other introduction songs, but it was quite a rage with impressionable kids like me at that time. The fact that Kishore Kumar sang this song meant that this song had to be on the lips of everyone. Kishore Kumar the reigning male playback singer those days could do no wrong. Whatever song he sang tended to become popular. I recall listening to this song a lot in Radio Ceylon’s “aaphi ke geet” programme in the morning between 8 A M and 9 A M.

Anjaan wrote this song and Kalyanji Anandji composed the music, though such details were not mentioned by the Radio Ceylon annoucer. He would only mention the name of the singer, and as a result I used to think that it was the singer who used to create the song single handedly. Yes, I was that uninformed those days.


Song-Bure bhi ham bhale bhi ham ..ham hain Banarasi baabu(Banarasi Babu) (1973) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics

bure bhi ham bhale bhi ham
samajhiyo naa kisi se kam
hamaaraa naam, banaarasi baabu
ham hain banaarasi baabuu
bure bhi ham bhale bhi ham
samajhiyo naa kisi se kam
hamaaraa naam, banaarasi baabu
ham hain banaarasi baabu

jai ho gangaa maiyyaa

gangaa ki, lahron jaisi
gangaa ki, lahron jaisi
seedhi saadhi chaal hamaari
ghaat ghaat kaa, are paani peeke
ghaat ghaat kaa paani peeke
hamne saari umar guzaari
naa raastaa naa manzil phir bhi
ghoomen subah shaam
banaarasi baabu
ham hain banaarasi baabu
bure bhi ham, bhale bhi ham
samajhiyo na kisi se kam
hamaaraa naam, banaarasi baabu
ham hain banaarasi baabu

hamne bhi, wohi seekhaa
hamne bhi, wohi seekhaa
jo is duniyaa ne sikhlaayaa
andar karlo, are aankh meechke
andar karlo,aankh meechke
chaahe ho wo maal paraayaa
duniyaa aur ham dono sachche
kisko den ilzaam
banaarasi baabu
ham hain banaarasi baabu
bure bhi ham, bhale bhi ham
samajhiyo na kisi se kam
hamaaraa naam, banaarasi baabu
ham hain banaarasi baabu
ham hain banaarasi baabu

Hi Atul
