Mai deewani, kuch na jaana, mast ho ke gaawaan
Duniya raazi karke kamle, phir vi chain nai aauna
Saari khushiyan mil jaavan te picche ki reh jaana
Tere bas me kuch vi nahi eh, dil nu eh samjhavan
I am madly in love; I don’t understand anything; I just sing in ecstasy.
Even if I appease the entire world, even then I won’t find peace.
If I find all happiness, what remains the point of life?
I don’t have any control over this world; I teach this to my heart.
