Koyal kyun gaaye

Posted on: October 12, 2011

Here is a song that I thought had already been discussed in this blog but I was wrong.

This song ffeatures the voice of Rafi, the lyrics of Anand Bakshi and the music of Laxmikant Pyarelal. Combine it with the fact that the song is picturised as a dsance song on Rajendra Kumar and Sadhana, and one has a killer commbination.

The song is a hugely popular song on its time and the movie “Aap Aaye Bahaar Aayi” (1971) rode on the back of songs like this and managed to succeed at the box office. This was one of the last hits of Rajendra Kumar and Sadhana . By that time the phenomenon of Rajesh Khanna had already happened and and the phenomenon of Amitabh Bachchan was waiting to happen. So Rajendra Kumar was already a has been by this time.

The lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

Ahaa ohooo
ahaa ohoo

koyal kyun gaaye
koyal kyun gaaye
koyal kyun gaaye
koyal kyun gaaye
baag se jab patjhar jaaye re
bahaar chalee aaye
manmast pawan dhadkaaye
ambuaa pe koyal
baadal kyun chhaaye
baadal kyun chhaaye
baadal kyun chhaaye,
chaaye chaaye re
baadal kyun chaaye

birhaa ke jab geet koi gaaye re ,
to aag lag jaaye
rimjhim paani barsaaye
aakaash pe baadal

hirnee si aankh teri
aa haa haa
hirnee si aankh teri
hirnee si aankh teri
morni si chaal
aa tujhse poochhoon ,
main ik chhotaa saa sawaal
baaje kyun ghunghroo
baaje kyun ghunghroo
paaon mein jab kaantaa lag jaaye
maare dard ke haaye
jab raaton mein neend na aaye
to chham chham baaje

aaa aaa aaa aaa
aaa aaa aaa aaa

neele gagan pe aayee
aa aaa aaa
neele gagan pe aayee
neele gagan pe aayee
chaand ki baaraat
aa tujhse poochhoon poochhoon
main ik chhoti si ye baat
manwaa kyun doley
manwaa kyun doley

nadiya mein naao khaaye hichkoley
chori chori hauley hauley
jab saajan ghoongat kholey
to gori ka manwaa

itta gumaan dekho dekho
aaa aaa aaa aaaa
itta gumaan dekho dekho
itta gumaan dekho dekho
hota hai kharaab
abke sambhal ke dena
o raja mujhe dena jawaab
jhumka kyun jhhoome
jhumka kyun jhhoome

itti si bhi tu baat na jaane
sab tere hain deewaane
jhumka jhoomne ke bahaane
tera phool saa mukhdaa

koyal kyun gaaye
baadal kyun chaaye
koyal kyun gaaye
baadal kyun chhaaye
