Piya Basanti Re Lyrics
O beloved spring, why are you pestering me? Please come here. I don’t know what kind of magic you’ve casted? But my heart sings to the tunes of love.
The season of spring symbolises promise, love, hope and a new beginning. This women represents all of this and is compared to the arrival of spring.
A time that everyone looks forward to, a time when the flowers bloom and beauty springs to life.

Lehraaya dharti ka aanchal
Yeh patta patta yeh boota boota
Chhede hai kaisi yeh halchal
Manawa yeh dole jaane kya bole
Manega naa mera jiya tere hain hum tere piya
When the cloud stretched its limbs, the scarf of the earth fluttered.
There is a hustle-bustle among the leaves and the shrubs. My heart dances with joy and I don’t know what it is saying.
My heart won’t listen to me. I am yours, and only yours sweetheart.

Khwaab wahi jo aane waale
Dil ki giraha giraha khole
Mann mein pyaar jagaane waale
Satrangi sapne bole re kaahe sataaye aaja
Seated under my eyelids, there are dreams that I see everyday. They open all the knots of the heart.
They awaken love. All these rainbow-coloured dreams ask : why are you pestering me? They await your arrival.
This is a possible reference to the monsoon season that they await. The rainbows indicate that the rains are not far away and they wait for it with excitement.
WORD- Sirhaana: Underneath, Girha: Knot, Satrangi: Rainbow-coloured
