Recorded at BBC Pebble Mill, Birmingham, 1979

CHITRA SINGH:- Kothe te aa mahiya, Kothe te aa mahiya, milna tan mil aaake nahi tan khasmanu kha mahiya, milna tan mil aaake nahi tan khasmanu kha mahiya,
Please come on the terrace my beloved if you want to meet me and if you don't want to come then go to hell

JAGJIT SINGH:- Oye ki lena ae mitra to, ki lena ae mitra t,o milan te aa jaavan dar lagda ae chitran to, milan te aa jaavan dar lagda ae chitran to..
What will I do with my friends, I want to come and meet you but I am scared of being caught and thrashed

CHITRA SINGH:- Tusi kaale kaale ho, Tusi kale kale ho, o kuj te sharam karo tiyan putra wale ho, okuj te sharam karo tiyan putra wale ho..

Why are you so restless , have some shame , you have sons and daughters!

JAGJIT SINGH:- saare dand pe katde ne, saare dand pe katde ne, asi tenu change lagde sadi duan putt vadde ne, asi tenu change lagde sadi duan putt vadde ne../
I have taken out all my teeth, you say you like me but my sons and daughters bite you?

CHITRA SINGH:- Aithe pyaar di pooch koi na, Aithe pyaar di pooch koi na, tere naal naiyo bolna tere mooh uthe mooch koi na, tere naal naiyo bolna tere mooh uthe mooch koi na../
No body cares about love here, I will not talk to you , you don't even have a moustache

JAGJIT SINGH:- Majaa pyaar da chakh laanga, Majaa pyaar da chakh laanga je tera hukam hove me taan daari vi rakh laanga, je tera hukam hove me taan daari vi rakh laanga..
Even I want to enjoy love so if you order me I will keep a beard with moustache

CHITRA SINGH:- Baage vich aaya karo, Baage vich aaya karo, jado assi so jaiye tussi makhiyan udaya karo, jado assi so jaiye tussi makhiyan udaya karo..
Come to the garden and when I fall asleep you should fly away the flies.

JAGJIT SINGH:-Tussi roz nahaya karo, tusi roz nahaya karo makhiyan to darde ho gud thoda khaya karo, makhiyan to darde ho gud thoda khaya karo
You should take bath daily and if still you are scared of flies then eat less jaggery

:JAGJIT SINGH AND CHITRA SINGH: Ping pyaar bitavange ping pyaar bitavange hun asi mil gaye haan geet pyaar de gavange,hun asi mol gaye haan hun roz nahavange
We will spend the days in love on a swing , and now since we have met we will sing songs of love , to this jagjit singh says since we have met now we will take bath daily
