doodh ki moochhon waala
moot ke penchon waala
phunsi kharonchon waala
bachpan bhi tha saala

the one with mustaches of milk,
the one with crossing streams of piss,
the one with boils and scratches,
there was that childhood..

na yaadon ke chakkar the
na sapnon ke machchhar the
hum hi the apne shehenshah
khud apne afsar the
ek tu tha thoDa TeDha
ek main bhi thoDa meDha
aur ek tha waqt kabootar
jo khiDki pe na Thehra
chor police waala
bachpan bhi tha saala

there were no issues of memories,
nor were those mosquitoes of dreams,
we were our own kings,
we were our own officers,
one was you, a little crooked,
another, me, a little crooked again..
and there was this pigeon of time
that didn’t stay on the window..
the one with games of thief and police,
there was that childhood..

tujh jaisa ban-na chaahaa
tujhe jeb mein rakhna chaaha
tune door se Thenga dikhaya
kabhi haath na mere aaya
main roya main chillaaya
tu haath na mere aaya

I tried to become like you,
tried to keep you in my pocket (as in, control you)
you showed your thumb from far off (you rejected, chided me)
you never got caught by me..
I cried, I made noises.
you never got caught by me..

doodh ki moochhon waala
moot ke penchon waala
luchche lafangon waala
bachpan bhi tha saala
gachchi pe suTTon waala
bachpan bhi tha saala..

the one with mustaches of milk,
the one with crossing streams of piss,
the one like those of loafers,
there was that childhood..
the one with fags in hiding,
there was that childhood..

maine saazish phir kar daali
ungli pistaul bana li
kaani aankh se aim laga ke
dham se goli chalaa di
aur tu Tapka, dhool se chipka
rok li saansein, baj gayi taali
wo khel tha be oh saale
sab jhooTh tha be oh saale
baazi chhod ke jaane waale
ye beimaani hai
ye beimaani hai oh saale.

I then conspired a plot,
made my finger a gun,
I aimed with an eye closed,
and fired a shot..
and you fell, stuck to earth,
breaths stopped, there was applause,
that was a game, man,
it was all a lie, man,
O one who left the game,
this is cheating,
this is cheating man!
