Man Re Tu Kahe Na Dheer Dhare Lyrics in Hindi

मन रे तू काहे ना धीर धरे
वो निरमोही मोह ना जाने, जिनका मोह करे
इस जीवन की चढ़ती ढलती, धूप को किस ने बांधा
रंग पे किस ने पहरे डाले, रूप को किस ने बांधा
काहे ये जतन करे, मन रे …
उतना ही उपकार समझ, कोई जितना साथ निभाये
जन्म-मरण का मेल हैं सपना, ये सपना बिसरा दे
कोई ना संग मरे, मन रे …

English Lyrics and Translation of The Song

Mann Re Tu Kaahe Na Dheer Dhare
Woh Nirmohi, Moh Na Jaane, Jinka Moh Kare
Mann Re Tu Kaahe Na Dheer Dhare…
(Oh Dear Heart, Why do you despair?
The one you desire is devoid of emotion, knows not what desire is
Oh dear heart…)

Iss Jeevan Ki Chadti Dhalti Dhoop Ko Kisne Baandha
Rang Pe Kisne Pehre Daale, Roop Ko Kisne Baandha
Kaahe Yeh Yatan Kare……Mann Re…
(No One has Control of Joys and Sorrows of Life
No One has Control of Beauty and Youth in one’s Life)

Utna Hi Upkaar Samjh, Koi Jitna Saath Nibha De
Janam Maran Ka Mel Hai Sapna, Yeh Sapna Bisra De
Koi Na Sang Mare….Mann Re…
(Recognise their favor so long as they stay true to you
Being in Life and in Death is just a dream, a dream that is an illusion
In the end you die alone, So Oh Dear Heart, Why do you despair?)
