Kanchi Re Kanchi Re Lyrics in Hindi

कांची रे कांची रे, प्रीत मेरी साँची
रुक जा, न जा, दिल तोड़ के

तेरे हाथों में है मेरी डोरी जैसे
कच्चे धागे से मैं बंधा आया ऐसे
मुश्किल है जीना, दे दे ओ हसीना
वापस मेरा दिल मोड़ के
कांची रे कांची रे…

झूठा है ये गुस्सा तेरा, सच्चा नहीं
सच्चे प्रेमी को तड़पाना अच्छा नहीं
वापस न आऊंगा, मैं जो चला जाऊंगा
ये तेरी गलियाँ छोड़ के
कांचा रे कांचा रे…
रंग तेरे में ये तन रंग लिया
तन क्या है मैंने मन रंग लिया
बस चुप ही रहना, अब फ़िर ना कहना
रुक जा, न जा दिल तोड़ के
कांचा रे कांचा रे…

English Translation & Lyrics of The Song

Kaanchi Re Kaanchi Re, Preet Meri Saanchi
Ruk Ja, Na Ja, Dil Tod Ke 
(Oh pretty girl, my love is true
Stop, don’t go, after breaking my heart)

Tere Hathon Mein Hai Meri Dori Jaise
Kacche Dhaage Se Main Bandha Aaya Aise
Mushkil Hai Jeena, De De Oh Haseena
Wapis Mera Dil Mod Ke 
Kaanchi Re Kaanchi Re…
(Like my string is in your hands
I came tied with a raw thread like this
It’s difficult to live, Oh beautiful give it
back my heart
Oh pretty girl …)
Jhootha Hai Yeh Gussa Tera, Saccha Nahi
Sacche Premi Ko Tadpaana Accha Nahi
Wapis Na Aaunga, Main Jo Chala Jaunga
Ye Ter Galiyan Chhod Ke
Kaancha Re Kaancha Re..
(this anger of yours is false, not true
It’s not good to torment a true lover
Won’t come back, if I’ll go
leaving your streets behind
Oh pretty girl…)
Kancha Re Kancha Re…
Rang Tere Mein Yeh Tan Rang Liya
Tan Kya Hai Maine Mann Rang Liya
Bas Chup Hi Rahna, Ab Phir Na Kehna
Ruk Ja, Na Jaa Dil Tod Ke
Kaancha Re, Kaancha Re …
(Oh pretty boy…
I colored my body in your color of love
what is the body I have painted my mind
just keep quiet, say no more
stop, don’t go by breaking my heart
Oh pretty boy…)
