My Hindi Musical Song

“Wohi Din Aa Gaya” by Alka Yagnik and Sukhwinder Singh

Goree ke hatho me mehandee lagao, uptan se ang ang mehkao
 Chanda jaise mathe pe jhumar sajao
 Hirowale motiwale kangana pehnao
 
 Goree ke hatho me mehandee lagao, uptan se ang ang mehkao
 
 Aagaya aagaya wohee din aagaya
 Meree sunee see raato ne dekha tha jis din ka
 Sapna sajana sajana sajana sajana
 
 Aagaya aagaya wohee din aagaya
 Jis din leke dolee tere angna aayenge sajana
 Sapna sajana sajana sajana sajana
 
 Phulo se khusbu kaliyo se rang leke
 Sajna kee sajnee sajee haule haule
 Hoton pe lali rachi haule haule
 
 Aanchal se hai jhalakta goree ka rup jaise
 Badal se chan rahee ho, subah kee dhup jaise
 
 Sajnee tujhko jis pal tere sajna dekhenge
 Mehendiwale pairo par dil apna rakh denge
 
 Aagaya aagaya wohee din aagaya
 Jis din leke dolee tere angna aayenge sajana
 Sapna sajana sajana sajana sajana
 
 More angana sajana aayo re - (2)
 Mai prit jo apni payo re - (2)
 Mai toh jaise baurayi gayee - (2)
 Tan jhum gayo mann gayo re - (2)
 
 Tan mann me se jaise koyee jwala see behatee hai
 Pighle hai ang ang dhime dhime, chaya hai meraa rang dhime dhime
 Jalte hai hoth mere kaisee hai pyas jagee jagee jagee jagee
 Ankhon mai hai dhuan sa, mann mai hai agan lagee lagee lagee lagee
 Saanson mai kaisee aandhee hai, kaisa tufan hai
 Betabee bechainee hai teraa hee arman hai
 
 Aagaya aagaya wohee din aagaya
 Jis din leke dolee tere angna aayenge sajana
 Sapna sajana sajana sajana sajana
 
 Haryalee bannee ke, haryalee banne
 Raste me tere bichchen hire motee panne
 Banna bannee duneeya ke sare sukh pave
 Pooton woh phale aur dudon woh nahaven
 
 Haryalee bannee ke, haryalee banne
 Raste me tere bichchen hire motee panne
 
 Kisna mere kisna.............

Kisna: The Warrior Poet is an Indian Hindi Romance/Musical film written, edited, produced and directed by Subhash Ghai and starring Vivek Oberoi (who plays the title role), Antonia Bernath, and Isha Sharvani. The musical film is set in the British India of the tumultuous 1940s when Indian nationalists fighting for the country’s independence rose up as one, urging the British Raj to leave. It is a love story about two people who are torn between Karma (the noble deed) and Dharma (the duty). The film has two veteran composers, A. R. Rahman and Ismail Darbar; the lyrics were written by Javed Akhtar. The film marked Amrish Puri’s last appearance as he had not signed or acted in any film after it before dying on 12 January 2005. The film, however, did not perform well at the box office. The film was premiered in the Marché du Film section of the 2005 Cannes Film Festival. Udit Narayan and Madhushree sang this beautiful song. The composer for this song was Ismail Darbar. According to the Indian trade website Box Office India, with around 12,00,000 units sold, this film’s soundtrack album was the year’s twelfth highest-selling.

My English Opera Song

“They Seek Him Here” by Douglas Sills

PERCY, spoken:
Would you be so kind?

PERCY:
They seek him here,
they seek him there,
those Frenchies seek him everywhere.
Is he in heaven or is he in hell?
That demned elusive Pimpernel.

[COMPANY applauds]

PERCY, spoken:
More to come, more to come! I said “brief,” not “infinitesimal”!

PERCY:
He meddles with the Frenchie Revolution,
popping in and out each week,
spoiling ev’ry lovely execution.
La, what cheek!

They seek him here,
they seek him there,
those Frenchies seek him everywhere.
If you should see him, please do give a yell –
that demned elusive Pimpernel!

WOMAN:
They seek him here!
They seek him there!

PRINCE OF WALES:
Those Frenchies seek him everywhere!

PERCY:
Oh, Pimpy, how the Frenchies do implore you
simply to stay home in bed.
With all your interference, it’s a chore
to chop a head!

COMPANY:
They seek him here!
They seek him there!

PERCY:
The ladies seek him everywhere!

PRINCE:
He gives the Frenchies nothing but frustration.
Sink me, he’s a spoilsport!
Each and ev’ry demned decapitation
he cuts short!

PERCY, spoken:
Inspired, Highness! Inspired!

PRINCE, spoken:
Quite so!

PERCY, spoken:
Everyone!

COMPANY:
They seek him here!
They seek him there!
Those Frenchies seek him everywhere!
Is he in heaven or is he in hell?
That demned elusive Pimpernel!
