Rim Jhim Song Lyrics and Translation

From the movie – 1942 A Love Story

rim jhim rim jhim rum jhum rum jhum

pitter-patter…

bhigi bhigi rut mein tum ham ham tum

in the wet, wet season, you and i, i and you…

chalte hain chalte hain

we walk, we walk.

bajtaa hai jaltarang par ke chhat pe jab

the harmonica plays, while on the roof,

motiyon jaisa jal barasaaye

water pours down like pearls.

buundon ki yeh jhadi laayi hai vo ghadi

the drops of this rainshower have brought that moment

jiske liye ham tarase

for which we have yearned.

bajataa hai jalatarang par ke chhat pe jab

the harmonica plays, while on the roof,

motiyon jaisa jal barasaae

water pours down like pearls.

buundon ki yeh jhadi laayi hai vo ghadi

the drops of this rainshower have brought that moment

jiske liye ham tarase

for which we have yearned.

baadal ki chaadarein odhi hain vaadiyaan

sheets of clouds have wrapped around the valleys;

saari dishaayein soyi hain

the world sleeps.

sapanon ke gaaon mein bhigi si chhaanv (chaao) mein

in the damp shadows of dream villages,

do aatmaaein khoyi hain

two souls are lost.

baadal ki chaadarein odhe hain vaadiyaan

sheets of clouds have wrapped around the valleys;

saari dishaayein soyi hain

the world sleeps.

sapanon ke gaaon mein bhigi si chhaanv (chaao) mein

in the damp shadows of dream villages,

do aatmaaein khoi hain

two souls are lost.

aayi hain dekhne jhilon ke aayine

they have come to see the mirrors made by the pools;

baalon ko khole ghataaein

the lowering clouds open cracks (in them).

raahein dhuaan dhuaan jaaeinge ham kahaan

paths of smoke, smoke; where shall we go?

aayo yahin rah jaaein

come, we shall remain here.

aayi hain dekhne jhilon ke aayine

they have come to see the mirrors made by the pools

baalon ko khole ghataaein

the lowering clouds open cracks (in them).

raahein dhuaan dhuaan jaaenge ham kahaan

paths of smoke, smoke; where shall we go?

aayo yahin rah jaaein

come, let’s remain here.
