Gulaabo or Gulabo is nothing but a name that comes out of Gulaab — Rose, and hence would literally mean Rosy, or Pinky, if you will.

hey surma lagaa ke
laTein uljha ke
haath jiya pe mal-mal
tere chhajje ke neeche khaDe hain
phans gaye jaise daldal

having applied the eye-kohl,
entangling the hair,
and rubbing the hand over the heart,
I am standing under your balcony,
like I am stuck in marsh..

tere chhajje ke neeche hi khaDe hain
phans gaye jaise daldal
gulabo.. zara itr gira do
gulabo.. zara itr gira do..

I am standing under your balcony,
like I am stuck in marsh..
O pinky, pour some perfume over,
O Gulaabo, pour some perfume over (where I stand)..

tauba tauba tu to meeTha sa murabba
tauba tauba tu to shehad ka dabba
bhen ki Takki oye
wow so lucky oye
sab ki Dain aur tu bole dhappa

O my god, you are like some sweet pickle,
O my god, you are a box of honey,
O my my,
wow, you are so lucky,
everyone’s out to seek you and you seek them out.

[Dain and dhappa are references to the Indian version of Hide and Seek.]

cocktail menu me bas tera naam - in the bar
posTer chhap gaye nikle - ishtehaar
abki baar, teri sarkaar
chipak chipak let’s kiss you pooh in the car
gulaabo.. zara gand phaila do
gulaabo.. zara gand phaila do

On the cocktail menu just your name is there, in the bar.
there are posters and ads out,
this time, it’s your government..
let’s hold you close and kiss you in the car..
Gulaabo, just make a chaos..

surma lagaa ke
laTein uljha ke
haath jiya pe mal-mal
tere chhajje ke neeche khaDe hain
phans gaye jaise daldal

tere chhajje ke neeche hi khaDe hain
phans gaye jaise daldal
gulaabo.. zara gand phaila do
gulaabo.. zara gandh phaila do
