Yoon Shabnami - my favorite Saawariya track

Dekho chaand aaya, chaand nazar aaya! Today is Eid-ul-Fitr here in Miami, Florida. Those who follow the lunar calendar (no matter what faith they belong to) would relate to the uncertainties related to sighting the new moon. Believe it or not, this leads me to my favorite song from the upcoming film Saawariya: Yoon Shabnami. Lyrical, musical, individual and group vocal genius, all are in ample supply in this one. Beautiful stuff! Kho gaye tujh mein hum is qadr, seriously. Below are lyrics transcribed by yours truly. Note: Salman Khan is in the video too! Music by Monty Sharma, lyrics by Sameer and Sandeep Nath. Sung by Parthiv Gohil.


Song: Yoon Shabnami

Yoon shabnami, pehle nahin thi chandni,
Chaand woh bharma gaya,
Tujh ko dekha to sharma gaya,
Woh churaney laga hai nazar.

Yoon shabnami, pehle nahin thi chandni x2
Chaand woh bharma gaya, tujh ko dekha to sharma gaya,
Woh churaney laga hai nazar,
Yoon shabnami...

Dekho chaand aaya, chaand nazar aaya...

(qawwali chorus begins)
Dekho chaand aaya, chaand nazar aaya,
Dekho chaand aaya, chaand nazar aaya,
Aaya, aaya, aaya chaand aaya sharmaya,
Haan jee haan,
Aaya aaya, haan jee haan, aaya sharmaya,

Tu bhi aaja, saawariya!

Aaya aaya aaya dekho chaand nazar woh aaya,
Dekho chaand nazar dekho dekho jee chaand nazar woh aaya,
Sharmaya aaya aaya chaand aaya sharmaya,
(qawwali chorus ends)

Dheere dheere aake hawa gungunake har khabar de tumhari,
Kaisa yeh nasha hai? nazar mein ghula hai,
Har ghadi hai khumaari,
Nashe mein qadam mere udhar kabhi idhar,
gumsum nazar jaayein kidhar?
Kho gaye tujh mein hum is qadar.

Yoon shabnami, pehle nahin thi chandni x2
Chaand woh bharma gaya, tujh ko dekha to sharma gaya,
Woh churaney laga hai nazar,
Yoon shabnami...

Saawariya
Tu aajaa
Saawariya
