La-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la,
Ninde bharay pankh leyay jholla jhula jaana
Ninde bharay pankh leyay jholla jhula jaana
Nanhi kali sonay chali hawa dheray aana.
Ninde bharay pankh leyay.

Chand kiran see guriah majon ki hay pali
Chand kiran see guriah majon ki hay pali
Aaj agar chandhi aa aana meri gali
Gun gun gun, geet koi holay holay gaana
Ninde bharay pankh leyay jholla jhula jaana
La-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la.

Raysham ki doar agar paron ko uljhay
Raysham ki doar agar paron ko uljhay
Ghoongar ka dana koi shoar macha joy
Rani meeri jagay to phir nindya tu bahlana
Ninde bharay pankh leyay jholla jhula jaana
Ninde bharay pankh leyay.
La-la-la-la-la,la-la-la.





La-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la,
O whisp'ring breeze, sway her to sleep,
With thy sleep laden wings,
O whisp'ring breeze, sway her to sleep,
With thy sleep laden wings,
This tiny bud drowsily sleeps,
Rocking, rocking to rest.
O whisp'ring breeze, sway her to sleep.

This babe so frail, as moonlight pale,
Reared with spoiling love,
This babe so frail, as moonlight pale,
Reared with spoiling love,
O moonlight shine on this child of mine,
Lull her, lull her, to sleep.
Silken cords do no harm, tangled with tiny feet,
O whisp'ring breeze, sway her to sleep,
With thy sleep laden wings.
La-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la.

If my princess should wake up
Soothe her, soothe her to sleep,
If my princess should wake up
Soothe her, soothe her to sleep.
Swing high her nest with your soft wings,
Lull her, lull her to sleep,
Tink'ling bells cause no alarm with your music sweet,
O whisp'ring breeze, sway her to sleep,
With thy sleep laden wings,
Drowsily sleep, swayed in the breeze,
La-la-la-la-la,la-la-la.
