Dekho jee dekho sun lo ye baat

Posted on: July 29, 2012


Today (29 july) is the death anniversary of F C Mehra (29 august 1923 – 29 july 2008), who set up Eagle Films and he produced some well known movies from 1960 onwards.

On this occasion, here is a song from “Singapore” (1960). “Singapore” (1960) was one of the earlier movies of Eagle Films. It was produced by F C Mehra and directed by Shakti Samanta. the movie had Shammi Kapoor, Padmini, Helen, Bhagwan, Agha, Shashikala, Madan Puri, Rajen Kapoor, K. N. Singh, Maria Merado etc in it. This movie was one of the first Hindi movies to be shot almost entirely abroad.

There are two songs in this movie that have the word “Singapore” in them. So both these songs can be called the title cum theme songs of this movie. One of these songs, viz Ye sheher badaa albela…Singapore is one of the three songs from this movie that have already been discussed in the past.

Here is the other title cum theme song from this movie. This song is sung by Lata and chorus and they are lip synced by Maria Menado, an Indonesia born actress (who played a Singaporean girl Maria in this movie) and some Singaporean extras. Shammi Kapoor is also present in the picturisation.

The song is written by Hasrat Jaipuri. The far east sounding music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan.

Chorus

Lyrics

dekho jee dekho
sun lo ye baat
jeewan mein ek baar aana Singapore
dil ka khazaana doongi tujhe
jeewan mein ek baar aana Singapore
dekho jee dekho
sun lo ye baat
jeewan mein ek baar aana Singapore
dil ka khazaana doongi tujhe
jeewan mein ek baar aana Singapore

nainon ke aaine mein tasweer hai tumhaari
maano na tum to paas aake dekh lo
nainon ke aaine mein tasweer hai tumhaari
maano na tum to paas aake dekh lo
hota hai pyaar kaisa
kehte hain pyaar kisko
jaano na totum to dil laga ke dekh lo
kehta hai tumse man ka mor
jeewan mein ek baar aana Singapore
dekho jee dekho
sun lo ye baat
jeewan mein ek baar aana Singapore

dil mein bithhaaungi main
apna banaaungi main
raahon mein dil bichhaaungi tere liye
dil mein bithhaaungi main
apna banaaungi main
raahon mein dil bichhaaungi tere liye
naghmo ke phool laana
khushiyon ke geet laana
aaye jo aap is taraf mere liye
tod na dena asha ko dore
jeewan mein ek baar aana Singapore
dekho jee dekho
sun lo ye baat
jeewan mein ek baar aana Singapore

achcha to waada karlo
aaoge kis din milne
mere dildaar shukriya shukriya
achcha to waada karlo
aaoge kis din milne
mere dildaar shukriya shukriya
dil ka payaam hai ye
tu jo qubool kar le
tera sau baar shukriya shukriya
bhool na jaana
o dil ke chor
jeewan mein ek baar aana Singapore
dekho jee dekho
sun lo ye baat
jeewan mein ek baar aana Singapore
dil ka khazaana doongi tujhe
jeewan mein ek baar aana Singapore

Maria Menado was the ‘bad girl’ in this movie. And I must say, she did a good job of it! This song was quite a popular one those days.

Lata has gain some of the mastery of foreign accents and mimicry while singing this song.
Some of her vocal cords can be very well matched with Ashaji.
