Chori chori hum Gori se pyaar karen ge
chupke chupke dil ki baaten, yaar, karen ge
Aane waali kab aae gi?
Koee de bataa!
Dhoond rehe hain jaane kab se
hum uss ka pataa
Aaja aaja......

Pyaare pyaare, dekh na, pyaare, din mein taare
Dil ki baazi koee na jeeta -

Mar jaae ga, mit jaae ga
Kar na aisee khataa
Nahee mili hai, nahee miley gi
Arey, teri dilrubaa
Aaja aaja...


I will love Gori in secret
I'll quietly speak the words of my heart, my friend
When will she who is to arrive, arrive?
Somebody tell me!
I've been searching since who knows when
Her whereabouts
Come, come...

Friend, don't see stars in the daytime
Nobody's won a wager of the heart -
everyone's lost
You'll die, you'll be erased
Don't make that kind of mistake
You haven't found her, you won't find her
Oh, your sweetheart
Come, come...
