Chaand ko dekho ji

Posted on: August 29, 2010


There are people who preach us to save for a rainy day. If you talk to me about saving for a rainy day,I will reel off the list of songs picturised on a rainy day to try and prove that rainy days are as much fun as sunny days. If one does not save for a sunny day, then why should one do so for a rainy day ? One should instead enjoy rainy days by getting drenched in the rain instead of hiding indoors. Next thing you know, the same people may ask us to save for a moonlit night saying that nights are for going to bed !

Moonlit nights offer even more scope for great songs than does rainy days. And I lovingly describe these songs as “Chhaayaageet” songs. These songs are typically sung late at night, when moon is there in the sky, and streets are empty, and one is in a romantic mood. Listening to a “Chhaayaageet” song on this occasion, replete with words like “Chaand”, “Jaadoo”,”Bheegi bheegi” etc is a divine experience.

Here is a superb “Chhaayaageet” song from a movie called “Chaand Mere Aaja” (1960). This song is sung by Lata and Rafi. The song is picturised on Nanda and Bharat Bhushan. I C Kapoor is the lyricist and Chitragupta composed the A grade music of this B grade movie.

PS-The song also has a slow version, as pointed out by Mr Sadanand Kamath.

Song-Chaand ko dekho ji (Chaand Mere Aaja) (1960) Singers-Lata, Rafi, Lyrics-I C Kapoor, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

chaand ko dekho ji
chaand ko dekho ji
masti lutaaye jaadu jagaaye
dil mein hamaare re
chaand ye kehtaa hai
chaand ye kehtaa hai
dharti ki raani,
hansti jawaani,
din hain tumhaare re
chaand ko dekho ji

pahli nazariyaa tori,
dil meraa le gayi gori
pahli nazariyaa tori,
dil meraa le gayi gori
hamne lutaa di duniyaa,
aur tumne lutaa di chhori
baat ye kaisi hai
baat ye kaisi hai
yoon na sataao,
ham to sajan hain,
nainon ke maare re
chaand ko dekho ji
chaand ko dekho ji
masti lutaaye jaadu jagaaye
dil mein hamaare re
chaand ko dekho ji

raat hai bheegi-bheegi
aur saath hai saajan teraa
raat hai bheegi-bheegi
aur saath hai saajan teraa
meri tamannaa ye hai,
ab ho na kabhi saweraa
raat ye teri hai
raat ye teri hai
taaron ki toli,
neele gagan mein
ye hi pukaare re
chaand ko dekho ji
chaand ko dekho ji
masti lutaaye jaadu jagaaye
dil mein hamaare re

dil se dil kah degaa
ham munh se na bolenge
dil se dil kah degaa
ham munh se na bolenge
dhadkan mein ho baaten
ham nainaa na kholenge
chaand mere aaja re
chaand mere aaja re
nanha sa dil hai
thodaa sa dil hai
bas mein tumhaare hai
chaand ko dekho ji
chaand ko dekho ji
masti lutaaye jaadu jagaaye
dil mein hamaare re
chaand ko dekho ji
