A hindi lullaby

I am learning a Hindi lullaby to sing to our baby. Sing along with me : ))



So ja Chanda

so ja chanda raaja so ja

Sleep, my lovely moonchild; sleep, my prince. ( or princess if he's a she)

chal sapnon mein chal

Come to the world of dreams; come.

nind ki pariyaan pehan ke aavi pairon mein paayal

The sleep-fairies are here wearing anklets on their feet.

tujhko apne naram paron par leke jaayenge

On their soft wings they'll waft you away

sone ka ik des hai jiski sair karaayengi

for a stroll in a country of gold.

dharti se kuchh duur kahin saat samandar paar

Far from this earth, somewhere across the seven seas,

aakaashon ke bich hai sapnon ka sansaar

amidst distant skies, is the world of dreams.

vo zamin hai pyaar ki vahaan sirf pyaar hai

That is the land of love, where there is only love.

mere chaand jaa vahaan tera intazaar hai

My darling moon, go there, the fairies are waiting for you.

Chorus

jin pariyon ke husn par jannat ho qurabaan

These beauties who dazzle heaven,

un pariyon ke des mein hoga tu mehamaan

in their land you'll be a guest.

hain navin kahaaniyaan jo tujhe sunaayenge

They'll tell you new stories,

tere saath naachengi tere saath gaayengi

they'll dance and sing with you.

Chorus

tujhko apne naram paron par leke jaayenge

On their soft wings they'll waft you away

sone ka ik des hai jiski sair karaayengi

for a stroll in a country of gold.
