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

Billi bajaaye baajaa

Posted on: November 26, 2010


“Sahaara” (1958) is one of those movies that have been totally forgotten with time. But when one watches the movie, or listens to the songs, one realises that this movie and/or its songs deserve to be much better known instead of lying forgotten.

Here is a lovely song from this movie. This song is picturised with Meena Kumari (playing a visually impaired mother) trying to win over her estranged kid played by Honey (or Daisy) Irani. The song is sung by Lata (for Meena Kumari) and Aarti Mukherji (for the kid). Bharat Vyas has written the cute lyrics. Hemant Kumar is the music director.

It is a nice kids’ song which I had stumbled upon a few months ago, but I was not posting it because I was findng it difficult to get the lyrics fully. Now that I have managed to decipher much of the lyrics (though not all), I felt that it was time for me to discuss this song.

This song is one of the forgotten gems. It could well be one of the great kids’s song created in Hindi movies, if only more listeners were aware about the existence of this song.

Lyrics

nahin
mujhe tumhaare khilaune nahin khelne hai

atkan matkan dahi chatokan
?? gussa
thook de gussa
kadwi kadwi baat pilaana
maiyya se nahin gaal phulaanaa
tu mera beta
main teri maiyya
hanste hanste kishan kanhaiyya
tili lilil lilil lili lili lili lili

billi bajaaye baajaa
gaaye chuhon kaa raajaa
naache bandariyaa lehangaa daal ke
billi bajaaye baajaa
gaaye chuhon kaa raajaa
naache bandariyaa lehangaa daal ke
totaa nachaaye mainaa
seeti bajaaye mainaa
nakhre dikhaaye re kamaal ke
billi bajaaye baajaa
gaaye chuhon kaa raajaa
naache bandariyaa lehangaa daal ke

pahle dhamkaaya kaahe kaan marod ke
badi aayi mujhko lalaane(?) ab daud ke
pahle dhamkaayaa kaahe kaan marod ke
badi aayi mujhko lalaane(?) ab daud ke
teri meri meri teri aaj se hai katt
hatt
main bhi hoon gusse waalaa
kar doon gadbad ghotaalaa
haath uthaanaa ji sambhaal ke
billi bajaaye baajaa
gaaye chuhon kaa raajaa
naache bandariyaa lehangaa daal ke

pyaar ki hai maar betaa
tu nahin jaantaa
maiyya ka kahaa koi
buraa nahin maantaa
pyaar ki hai maar betaa
tu nahin jaantaa
maiyya ka kahaa koi
buraa nahin maantaa
aajaa aajaa mere raajaa
god me tu jhatpat
choomoongi gaal tore
chandaa ke gore gore
jaaungi sadke apne laal ke
billi bajaaye baajaa
gaaye chuhon kaa raajaa
naache bandariyaa lehangaa daal ke
totaa nachaaye mainaa
seeti bajaaye mainaa
nakhre dikhaaye re kamaal ke
