Shokhi Bhabona Kahare Bole

Song: Shokhi Bhabona Kahare Bole
Composed by: Rabindranath Tagore

Shokhi bhabona kahare bole
Shokhi jatona kahare bole
Tomra je bolo dibosho rojoni
"Bhalobasha" "Bhalobasha"
Shokhi bhalobasha kare koi!
Shey ki keboli jatonamoi. 

Shey ki keboli chokhero jol?
Shey ki keboli dukhero shaash?
Loke tobe kore ki shukheri tore 
Emon dukhero aash.

Amar chokhe to shokoli shobhon,
Shokoli nobeen shokoli bimol,
Shuneel akash, shyamol kanon
Bishad jochhona kushumo komol - 
Shokoli amar moto. 

Tara keboli hashe, keboli gaye
Hashiya kheliya morite chaye
Na jane bedon, na jane rodon, 
Na jane shadher jatona joto. 

Phool shey hashite hashite jhore
Jochhona hashiya milaye jaye
Hashite hashite alok shagore 
Akasher tara teyage kaye. 

Amar moton shukhi ke achhe
Aaye shokhi aaye amar kachhe
Shukhi hridoyer shukher gaan
Shuniya toder jurabe pran. 

Protidin jodi kadibi kebol
Ekdin noi hashibi tora 
Ekdin noi bishad bhuliya 
Shokole miliya gahibo mora. 

Translation by Arjun Ganguly (from Geetabitan.com):

What do you mean by 'Thought', my dear. 
What do you mean by 'Pain' either. 
What is that you yell 'Love' for, 
What the word 'Love' means, 
Is it saturated with pain? 

Is that synonymous with tears or sigh of sufferings? 
It is surely a wonder, why it fascinates people. 

To my eyes everything is pleasing.
All are youthful, all are free from filth. 
Blue sky, green parks, elaborate moonlight, tender blossoms –
All alike myself. 

They laugh and sing all the time, 
Face certain death delightfully smiling. 
They know not sobs, neither fascinated to pains.

Flowers fall apart giggling, moonlight vanish while smiling, 
Stars in the sky go out of vision in the ocean of light. 

Who is happier than me – 
Come O Darling, sooth your ears 
With the blissful songs of a happy person. 
You should be able to smile for a while amid routine sufferings. 

Let us all sing for a single day ignoring the melancholy.

Himero raate oi gogoner deepgulire

Song: Himero raate oi gogoner deepgulire
Composed by: Rabindranath Tagore

Himero raate oi gogoner deepgulire
Hemontika korlo gopon aachol ghire ||

Ghore ghore daak patthalo
Deepalikai jalao alo
Jalao alo, apon alo, shajao alo dhoritrite |

Shunno ekhon phooler bagaan
Doyel kokil gahe na gaan
Kash jhore jai nodir teere |

Jaak oboshak bishak kaalo
Deepalikai jalao alo
Jalao alo, apon alo, shunao alor joybanire |



[Before some of you tear me apart that there's more to this song, let me assure you, yes, you are right. There are 2 more stanzas that I haven't included here. This is a song I was taught way back in school for a school function and I only included up to the point that we were taught by our teachers.]

Song: Moyur kontthi raater nile
Lyrics by:

Moyur kontthi raater nile
Akashe tarader oi michhile
Tumi ami aaj cholo chole jai
Shudhu dujone mile

Hoito pabo na pother tthikana
Tobu jabo aaj chariye shimana
Shathi jodi hou pashe theke mor
Korina bhoi nikhile

Tarara meghe meghe hariye jai

Ja achhe thakna, korina bhabna
Adhare kowashai hariye jabona
Monero aloi chine nibo poth
Tumi bhorosha dile

Chhuti

Song: Chhuti
Lyrics and Melody: Rabindranath Tagore

Megher kole rod heshechhe
Badol gechhe tooti
Ah-ha-ha-ha-ha

Aaj amader chhuti o bhai
Aaj amader chhuti
Ah-ha-ha-ha-ha

Ki kori aaj bhebe na pai
Poth hariye kon bon e jai
Kon matthe te chhute berai
Shokol chhele jooti
Ah-ha-ha-ha-ha

Keya patar nouka gore
Shajiye dibo phool e
Taal dighi te bhashiye debo
Cholbe dule dule

Rakhal chheler shonge dhenu
Chorabo aaj bajiye benu
Makhbo gaye phooler renu
Chapa'r bon e looti
Ah-ha-ha-ha-ha
