Aha,

lailaa ki ungliyaan hain
majnoo ki pasliyaan hain
do do paise mein le lo babu
naram taazi kakdiyaan hain

I remember this jingle from childhood.  Occasionally used to hear it from the roadside hawkers, and once I even heard it in a radio play on Vividh Bharti.  Then many years later, I encountered this song also.  I used to wonder, whether the song came first or this jingle came first – which is based on which.  As I prepare this post, just casually I googled it, and found references to Lucknow and Agra where fresh vegetable vendors are known to use this jingle.  So maybe this is more of a folk tradition, converted into a film song later on.  Just like “Jumkha Gira Re Bareilly Ke Bazaar Mein“.  😉

The ‘naram’ in this jingle refers to the soft fingers of Lailaa, and ‘taazi’ refers to the crisp ribs of Majnoo.  Quite a combination this makes. Ah yes, now I remember about the radio program also, referred above.  It was a program on the common folk jingles used by street hawkers of all kinds.  Of course it started “Chana Jor Garam”, which now is almost an iconic jingle, and then went on to tell about numerous other similar jingles from the streets of India.  I remember the program, but sadly do not remember most of the jingles presented.  Just that somehow this “lailaa ki ungliyaan” item stuck in the memory.

The film is ‘Ghar Ki Laaj’ from 1960.

The song is written by Rajendra Krishan and the music is by Ravi.  On screen it is Johnny Walker, and so the singer has to be Rafi Sb.  The rendition has the hallmark verve and abandon that Rafi Sb could so easily bring out in such songs of light nature.  And the on screen performance – it is Johnny Walker.  No more to add.
See, listen, and enjoy.

Lyrics

lailaa ki ungliyaan bechoon
majnoo ki pasliyaan bechoon
aao dilwaalo
khaao dilwaalo
naram kakdiyaan bechoon
lailaa ki ungliyaan bechoon
majnoo ki pasliyaan bechoon
arey aao dilwaalo
khaao dilwaalo
naram kakdiyaan bechoon
ho lailaa ki ungliyaan bechoon
majnoo ki pasliyaan bechoon

o lala ji o babu ji
kyon bhookhe reh kar jeete
ye jeena bhi kya jeena
dum nikle khaate pitey
hoye dum nikle khaate pitey
o lala ji o babu ji
kyon bhookhe reh kar jeete
ye jeena bhi kya jeena
dum nikle khaate pitey
oye dum nikle khaate pitey
pyaas bujha lo garmi mein
saawan ki badliyaan bechoon
lailaa ki ungliyaan bechoon
majnoo ki pasliyaan bechoon
aao dilwaalo
khaao dilwaalo
naram kakdiyaan bechoon
ho lailaa ki ungliyaan bechoon
majnoo ki pasliyaan bechoon

murgon par na chhuri chalaa
na le bakron ki haaye
khoon kisi ka kyon peena
pee le sharbat ya chaai
arey pee le sharbat ya chaai ha
murgon par na chhuri chalaa
na le bakron ki haaye
khoon kisi ka kyon peena
pee le sharbat ya chaai
arey pee le sharbat ya chaai
rog mitaa aur health banaa
gaalon ki surkhiyaan bechoon
lailaa ki ungliyaan bechoon
majnoo ki pasliyaan bechoon
aao dilwaalo
khaao dilwaalo
naram kakdiyaan bechoon
lailaa ki ungliyaan bechoon
majnoo ki pasliyaan bechoon

shirin aur farhad ki logo
ho na saki sagaai
kyon ke bhool se bechaaron ne
ye kakdi naa khaai
arey bhai ye kakdi naa khaai
ha ha ha
shirin aur farhad ki logo
ho na saki sagaai
kyon ke bhool se bechaaron ne
ye kakdi naa khaai
arey bhai ye kakdi naa khaai
arey kanwaaro le jaao
shaadi ki parchiyaan bechoon
lailaa ki ungliyaan bechoon
majnoo ki pasliyaan bechoon
arey aao dilwaalo
khaao dilwaalo
naram kakdiyaan bechoon
lailaa ki ungliyaan bechoon
majnoo ki pasliyaan bechoon

——————————————

लैला की उँगलियाँ बेचूँ
मजनूँ की पसलियाँ बेचूँ
आओ दिलवालो
खाओ दिलवालो
नरम ककड़ियाँ बेचूँ
लैला की उँगलियाँ बेचूँ
मजनूँ की पसलियाँ बेचूँ
अरे आओ दिलवालो
खाओ दिलवालो
नरम ककड़ियाँ बेचूँ
हो लैला की उँगलियाँ बेचूँ
मजनूँ की पसलियाँ बेचूँ

ओ लाला जी ओ बाबू जी
क्यों भूखे रह कर जीते
ये जीना भी क्या जीना
दम निकले खाते पीते
होय दम निकले खाते पीते
प्यास बुझा लो गर्मी में
सावन की बदलियाँ बेचूँ
लैला की उँगलियाँ बेचूँ
मजनूँ की पसलियाँ बेचूँ
आओ दिलवालो
खाओ दिलवालो
नरम ककड़ियाँ बेचूँ
हो लैला की उँगलियाँ बेचूँ
मजनूँ की पसलियाँ बेचूँ

मुर्गों पर ना छुरी चला
ना ले बकरों की हाय
खून किसी का क्यों पीना
पी ले शर्बत या चाय
अरे पी ले शर्बत या चाय
मुर्गों पर ना छुरी चला
ना ले बकरों की हाय
खून किसी का क्यों पीना
पी ले शर्बत या चाय
अरे पी ले शर्बत या चाय
रोग मिटा और हैल्थ बना
गालों की सुर्खियां बेचूँ
लैला की उँगलियाँ बेचूँ
मजनूँ की पसलियाँ बेचूँ
आओ दिलवालो
खाओ दिलवालो
नरम ककड़ियाँ बेचूँ
लैला की उँगलियाँ बेचूँ
मजनूँ की पसलियाँ बेचूँ

शिरिं और फरहाद की लोगो
हो ना सकी सगाई
क्यों के भूल से बेचारों ने
ये ककड़ी ना खाई
अरे भई ये ककड़ी ना खाई
अरे कंवारों ले जाओ
शादी की परचियाँ बेचूँ
लैला की उँगलियाँ बेचूँ
मजनूँ की पसलियाँ बेचूँ
अरे आओ दिलवालो
खाओ दिलवालो
नरम ककड़ियाँ बेचूँ
लैला की उँगलियाँ बेचूँ
मजनूँ की पसलियाँ बेचूँ

One of the cast in Ghar Ki Laaj is Chand Burke. Does it ring the bell. No? Hang on. I will refresh your memory.
Chand Burke made her debut in Maheshwari Productions’ Kahan Gaye (1946), which Niranjan wrote and directed. They fell in love on the sets and got married in 1945. Thereafter, Chand appeared in a number of films made in Lahore, and was widely known as “the Dancing Lily of the Punjab.” Partition and her subsequent migration to Bombay adversely affected her career. After “Hamari Manzil,” which was released in 1949, Chand Burke went into complete oblivion. It was Raj Kapoor who selected her for that important role as children’s tormentor in “Boot Polish,” over 200 other contestants, her screen-test convincing Raj Kapoor that she was a talented actress. Chand was the only one in a family of twelve brothers and sisters to have joined the films (her brother S. M. Burke, I.C.S., was a Minister to the Scandina­vian countries for Pakistan). Chand ob­tained judicial separation by mutual consent from her husband, writer-director Niranjan in 1954.
Trivia
Grandmother of Sonam Kapoor from Sonams mom side. Mother Sunita’s uncle’s wife is Chand Burke.
Patnernal grandmother of Bollywood Superstar Ranveer Singh.
Former partner of Producer Director Niranjan. ( She married Ranveer Singh’s grandfather Sunder Singh BhavnanI later on in life).
