Nimma Nimma Lyrics – Shani Arshad, Coke Studio

Khaali jhoola jhool raha hai
Bachpan saara bhool raha hai (x2)
Lori mujh ko kaun sunaaye ni
Khali jhoola jhool raha hai
Bachpan sara bhool raha hai
Lori mujhko kaun sunaye ni
Nimma nimma dukh maayen ni (x2)
The empty cradle is swinging softly
My childhood memories are fading away
Who will now sing me a lullaby?
Tere bina to chain na aye maa
Kya tujhe meri yaad na aye maa
Thapki de ke kaun sulaaye ni
Nimma nimma dukh maaen ni (x2)
A wistful sorrow lingers, o mother
I can’t gain solace without you, mother
Do you never think of me, mother?
Whose hands will now pat me tenderly to sleep?
A wistful sorrow lingers, o mother
Prem patang bhi chhoot chali thi
Saans ki dor bhi toot chali thi (x2)
Charkhah kaatne wali budhiya
Mujhse jaise rooth chali thi
The kite of love slipped from my hands
The kite-string of life also got snapped
The old woman from childhood stories
Who used to spin the wheel
It is as if she became displeased and abandoned me
Soona soona aangan laaga
Ruk gaya charkhah toota dhaaga
Main hoon tanha raat daraaye ni
Nimma nimma dukh maayen ni (x2)
The courtyard of my home appeared desolate
The wheel stopped spinning
The thread snapped I am left all alone now
And the dark night scares me
A wistful sorrow lingers, o mother
God men teri kya yih taare
Aankh michauli khelen saare (x2)
Sunte hain kya yeh bhi lori
Kya lagte hain tujh ko pyaare
Tujhse lipat ke sote hain kya
Chupke chupke rote hain kya
In ko bhi kya neend na aaye ni
Nimma nimma dukh maaen ni (x2)
The stars in the sky sheltering in your lap
All of them playing blind man’s buff
Do they now hear your lullaby?
Do they now have your love and affection?
Do they now sleep in your arms?
Do they cry silent, secret tears?
Do they also find it hard to sleep?
A wistful sorrow lingers, o mother
Tere bina to chain na aaye maan
Kya tujhe meri yaad nah aaye maan
Thapki de ke kaun sulaaye ni
Nimma nimma dukh maayein ni (x4)
