Main Baithi Thi-2 by K L Saigal

[audio:K L Saigal_Ghazals Of K.L.Saigal – Vol-6_02_Main Baithi Thi-2 (Language_ Urdu).mp3]

This is a non-film song by one of the greatest Indian movie singers – KL Saigal. It was written, composed and sung by KL Saigal himself. Go through the lyrics and understand his genius. I have heard many great Saints and poets try to express this same sentiment.. but the beauty with which Saigal’s poetry and his voice + melody expresses is unmatched!!

This is part 2, the part 1 is also uploaded here, so check out both the parts. The lyrics below however combine both parts together.

==============

Main baithi thi phulwari mein
Ik Sakhi aa gayi aur boli hi;
kya soch hai tum ko bolo to;
hun behan tumhari muhn boli.

Kuch keh na saki.. kuch keh na saki;
munh takat rahi
kuch keh na saki, munh takat rahi;
nainon se chali asuvan toli;
chalate chalate wohi bol gayi:


Sakhi kaun des Raaje Piya ra
Sakhi kaun des Raaje Piya ra

woh sunate hi khaamosh huyi
aur nain bhaye boraa na sakii;
woh sunate hi khaamosh huyi
main chaaha us ko chet karoon
aa jaane us ko maan sakhI

jab hosh huyi tab kahane lagee hee
jab hosh huyi tab kahane lagee hee
yehi tha mujh ko bhi dhyaan sakhi
yehi tha mujh ko bhi dhyaan sakhi
aur yehi main kahane waali thi
aur yehi main kahane waali thi hi.

Kaun des Raaje piyaa ra
Sakhi kaun des Raaje Piya ra
Sakhi kaun des Raaje Piya ra

(part 2 starts here)
kuch na samajhi, kya kahe sakhi hi
bin jaane dhoondan chal nikali,
jungle upvan tribhuvan dhoondha;
par kahin na uski ther mili,

aakhir thak kar main baith gayi
aakhir thak kar main baith gayi
aur lagi poochne kaho koi
sundar chhavi jiski kehte hain


Woh kaun des Raaje Piya ra
Woh kaun des Raaje Piya ra

tab man ne meethi baat kahi
kyun toone itni baatt gahi
ghar baithe pee paa sakti thi
main vidhi bataun wo kya thi
bahar ke naina muund sakhi
aur nain hriday ke khol sakhi
ab apne muhn se bol sakhi


Sakhi kaun des Raaje Piya ra
Sakhi kaun des Raaje Piya ra
