My Hindi Water Song

“Pani Da Rang” (Male Version) by Ayushmann Khurrana

Pani da rang vekh ke
Akhiyaan cho anju rul de
Maahiya na aaya mera, maahiya na aaya
Maahiya na aaya mera, maahiya na aaya
Ranjhana na aaya mera, maahiya na aaya
Maahiya na aaya mera, ranjhana na aaya
Akhaan da noor vekh ke
Akhaan da noor vekh ke
Akhiyaan cho anju rul de
Kamli ho gayi tere bina aaja ranjhan mere
Baarish barkha sab kuch beh gayi, aaya nahi jind mere
Akhaan da noor vekh ke
Akhiyaan cho anju rul de
Kotthe utte beh ke akhiyaan milaunde
Na jaana main tu kabhi chhod
Tere utte marda, pyaar tenu karda
Milega tujhe na koi aur
Tu bhi aa sabko chhod ke
Tu bhi aa sabko chhod ke
Meri akhiyaan cho anju rul de
Akhiyaan cho anju rul de

My English Earth and Air Song
“Strings in the earth and air” by Richard Hundley
Strings in the earth and air
Make music sweet;
Strings by the river where
The willows meet

There’s music along the river
For Love wanders there
Pale flowers on his mantle
Dark leaves on his hair

All softly playing
With head to the music bent
And fingers straying
Upon an instrument

My Fire Telugu Song
“Man Of Fire” by Yazin Nizar & Bianca Gomes

Missile lanti vadu nee side aithe
Elanti danger le nee chuttu unna
Bang Bang..Bang Bang..Bang Bang..Bang Bang
Miracle lanti vadu dost emi kaade
Risk lo nuvvunte nee rescue veede
Bang Bang..Bang Bang..Bang Bang..Bang Bang

Thappulne cheseti nippulne kalchese
Encounter specialistu veede
vegamalo Second ne daatentha speed unna vaade
Siren.e mogisthu parupalle kanipisthu
Kavachamla kaapaduthade
welcome ki dooranga thank you ku daggaraga untade

Man of fire he is the man of fire
Man of fire he is the man of fire
Man of fire he is the man of fire

Height e 6 feetu smile e choosthe
Gunde pootu look e kothha tendu
Maate konte mandhu gundu haa
Avemi kallu ra hey pistol gullu ra

Heat e ninnu choosi kaale jaarene
Kanne pille pulse rate ninne korene
Missile lanti vadu nee sideu aithe
Elanti danger le nee chuttu unna
Bang Bang..Bang Bang..Bang Bang..Bang Bang
Miracle lanti vadu dost emi kaade
Risk lo nuvvunte nee rescue veede
Bang Bang..Bang Bang..Bang Bang..Bang Bang

Neeloni fear antha fever antha
Pogette courage capsule veede
Daahamto dhairyanne neeralle
Thagese vaade lokamlo pogalanni
Pogamanchula maarchi chirunavvu

Pooyinche vaade welcome
Ki dooranga thank you ki daggaraga untade

Man of fire he is the man of fire
