sanon apna yaar rajhawan dey – Bulleh Shah

With due apologies to those who cannot understand Punjabi. I will work on a translation sometime later.
mar na mulla bulariyan
sanon apna yaar rajhawan dey

kanjri banyaan meri ezat na ghatdi
meinon naach ke yaar manawan deey

loog ishaq noon mool gindey
meinnoon gaal wich mala pawan deey

Bulleh shah odi oo janey
meinon apni toord nebha lein deey

Love and reputation

Love and reputation, brother,
are not in harmony:
don’t stand at the door of reputation, if you are a lover.


Version by Camille and Kabir Helminski
