Strangers in the Night : Frank Sinatra


Strangers in the night exchanging glances 
Wond’ring in the night what were the chances 
We’d be sharing love before the night was through 

Something in your eyes was so inviting 
Something in you smile was so exciting 
Something in my heart told me I must have you 

Strangers in the night 
Two lonely people, we were strangers in the night 
Up to the moment when we said our first hello little did we know 
Love was just a glance away, a warm embracing dance away 

and 

Ever since that night we’ve been together 
Lovers at first sight, in love forever 
It turned out so right for strangers in the night 

Love was just a glance away, a warm embracing dance away 

Ever since that night we’ve been together 
Lovers at first sight, in love forever 
It turned out so right for strangers in the night 

Dooby-doooby-doo 

Those were the Days – Mary Hopkin


Once upon a time there was a tavern
Where we used to raise a glass or two
Remember how we laughed away the hours
And dreamed of all the great things we would do

Those were the days my friend
We thought they’d never end
We’d sing and dance forever and a day
We’d live the life we choose
We’d fight and never lose
For we were young and sure to have our way

La la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la, la la la la la la la

Then the busy years went rushing by us
We lost our starry notions on the way
If by chance I´d see you in the tavern
We’d smile at one another and we’d say

Those were the days my friend
We thought they’d never end
We’d sing and dance forever and a day
We’d live the life we choose
We’d fight and never lose
Those were the days, oh yes those were the days

La la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la, la la la la la la la

Just tonight I stood before the tavern
Nothing seemed the way it used to be
In the glass I saw a strange reflection
Was that lonely woman really me

Those were the days my friend
We thought they’d never end
We’d sing and dance forever and a day
We’d live the life we choose
We’d fight and never lose
Those were the days, oh yes those were the days

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 la
La la la la la la
La la la la, la la la la la la la

Through the door there came familiar laughter
I saw your face and heard you call my name
Oh my friend we’re older but no wiser
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same

Those were the days my friend
We thought they’d never end
We’d sing and dance forever and a day
We’d live the life we choose
We’d fight and never lose
Those were the days, oh yes those were the days

La la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la, la la la la la la la

Kiyun tu acha lagta hai


kyo tu acha lagta hai
waqt mila to sochenge
tujh mein kya kya dekha hai
waqt mila to sochenge

saara shahar shanaasai ka daawedaar to hai lekin
kaun hamara apna hai
waqt mila to sochenge

humne usko likha tha
kuch milne ki tadbeer karo
usne likhkar bheja hai
waqt mila to sochenge

mausam, khusboo, baad-e-sabaa, chand, shafaq aur taaron mein
kaun tumaare jaisa hai
waqt mila to sochenge

ya to apne dil ki maano ya fir dunia walon ki
mashwara uska acha hai
waqt mila to sochenge

kyon tu acha lagta hai
waqt mila to sochenge

zindagi yun thi ke jeenay ka bahana tu tha


zindagi yun thi ke jeene ka bahana tu tha
hum faqat zaib-e-hikayat the, fasana tu tha 

hum ne jis jis ko bhi chaha tere hijran mein, woh log
aate jaate huye mausam the, zamana tu tha

ab ke kuch dil hi na maana ke palat kar aate
warna hum dar-ba-daron ka to thikana tu ha

yaar aghayaar ke haathon mein kamanein thi ‘Faraz’
aur sab dekh rahe the ke nishana tu tha

zindagi main to sabhi payar – Mehdi Hasan


zindagi mein to sabhi pyaar kiya karte hain
main to markar bhi meri jaan tujhe chahoonga

tu mila hai to ye ehsaas huaa hai mujhko
ye meri umr mohabbat ke liye thhodi hai
ek zara sa ghum-e-dauraan ka bhi haq hai jis par
maine wo saans bhi tere liye rakh chhorri hai
tujh pe ho jaaoonga qurban tujhe chahoonga
main to markar bhi meri jaan tujhe chaahoonga

apne jazbaat mein naghmaat rachaane ke liye
maine dhadkan ki tarah dil mein basaaya hai tujhe
main tasavvur bhi judaai ka bhala kaise karoon?
maine kismat ki lakeeron se churaaya hai tujhe
pyar ka banke nigehbaan tujhe chaahoonga
main to markar bhi meri jaan tujhe chaahoonga

teri har chaap se jalte hain khayaalon mein chiraag
jab bhi tu aaye jagaata huaa jaadu aaye
tujhko chhulun to aye jaan-e-tamanna mujhko
dair tak apne badan se teri khushboo aaye
tu bahaaron ka hai unwaan tujhe chaahoonga
main to marrkar bhi meri jaan tujhe chaaoounga….

 

hasaar-e-zaat say baahir gaya nahi koi


hasaar-e-zaat say baahir gaya nahi koi
yahaan kisi kay liyay raasta nahi koi
mujhay bhi uss say biccherr kar koi na raas aaya
ussay bhi mairi tarah ka mila nahi koi
