Happy Lohri | Punjabi Poems and Songs

Translated version in English

Beautiful girl
Who will think about you
Dulla of the Bhatti clan will
Dulla’s daughter got married
He gave one ser of sugar!
The girl is wearing a red suit!
But her shawl is torn!
Who will stitch her shawl?!
The uncle made choori!
The landlords looted it!
Landlords are beaten up!
Lots of simple-headed boys came!
One simpleton got left behind!
The soldier arrested him!
The soldier hit him with a brick!
(Cry or howl)!
Give us Lohri, long live your pair (to a married couple)!
Whether you cry, or bang your head later!

Maniye Rall Kudiyan Di Lohri | Happy Lohri | Punjabi Poems and Songs

Kudiyan da karo satkaar
Eh tuhanu kehna
Kudian bina na jagg te
Saada wajood eh rehna
Jag jann-ni di izzat aapan
Kyu pairan vich rodhi (x2)
Maniye rall kudiyan di lorhi
Maniye rall kudiyan di lorhi
Rall kudiyan di lorhi
Kan laake sunlo gall
Naale bann lo palle
Na bin a kudiyan de yaaro
Eh duniya challe
Na bina kudiyan
Taun jagg saara khali khali dikhna
Bina inha te pura hoju dasso kehra rishta
Oh zindigi ni maa de pyar taun jo sikhni
Bhaina te bina dasso bannu kaun rakhdi
Jug jug jeen sab bhua ate maassiyan
Rakhan khayal pura Mamiyan te Chachiyan
Chachiyan Mamiyan Tayiaan sabde
Rishte enha de naal pugne
Eh na hon taan hauli hauli
Rishte jagg chon saare mukne
Bhaina baajon dass vyah te
Kaun gaau teri ghodi
Maniye rall kudiyan di lorhi
Main hun kaamyab zindagi de har mod te
Mundeya de modde naal dekho modda jod ke
Chaare paase kardiyan kudiyan maidan fateh
Maan kado kudiyaan da te suno mere bol sache
Ikeesvi sadi munde kudi ch farak nayi
Hun haan kisse kamyabian de roz rahe
Sun aapa saare ehna kudiyan taun vaare jaiye
Aao ral milke kudiyan di lorhi manaiye
Puttar dhee vich farak na koi
Dhee hun putt barabar hoyi
Har kam vich ne agge kudiyan
Sadke jaiye ji
Dheeyan di lohri chaavan naal
Maniye ji
Aao kudiyan di lorhi
Chaavan naal manaiye ji
Palle naal bann lo apne gall
Siyani nu
Badal gaya samaa oh badlo soch
Purani nu
Rehn oh vassde reet purani
Jinha ne hai todhi
Manayi dhiyan di hai lorhi
Rall kudiyaan di lorhi
Maniye rall kudiyan di lorhi
