Patiala Peg Lyrics
Hor kisey te dull geya hun -2
Edda ni sukhala chhaddi da
Haan Patiala Peg laa chhadhdi da -3
Patiala Peg is about the sorrow of a broken-hearted man. The girl who broke Diljit’s heart believes that he might have forgotten her now or fallen in love with someone new.
But he sings that it isn’t that easy to simply get over a relationship. He had to get drunk on a Patiala Peg to forget his pain.
FACT- Patiala Peg refers to a large shot of any strong alcoholic drink, usually whisky. It was originally a 120-ml drink - quantity of liquor required to fill a glass equal to the height between the index and little finger.
Yaar-baili sab katthe kar ke -2
Oh dil da gubaar kadhi da
Haan ni gana-guna ga chhadi da
Patiala Peg laa chadhi da -2
Diljit kept a harmonium on his table and gathered around, all his friends. All his sorrow and suppressed feelings were vented out as he sang to them. The Patiala Peg helped him forget all the wonderful memories he once shared with his beloved.
Khat lai aib churassi -2
Lai hor peg paa de sohneya
Ajj tuttan ni deni glassi -2
He talks about a man who went away to earn a living abroad but came back with 84 new defects instead. Diljit is in the mood to get drunk and he asks for more shots. He won’t let his glass go empty the whole night.
FACT – The Patiala Peg was originally created by Maharaja Bhupinder Singh Of Patiala, who ruled from 1900 to 1938. He regularly threw lavish parties in his palace.
He once challenged some Irish polo players to drink large glasses of whisky, a night before their match against the Maharaja’s polo team. As a result of the heavy drinking, the Irish lost the match.
Ni tu ki khatt leya yaar bhula ke -2
Oh chhad ditta phuaada naddi da
Haan Baljeete gham kha chaddi da
Patiala Peg laa chhadi da -4
Diljit is ready to live like a jatt through all his suffering and bear every injury. But he doesn’t understand what the girl achieved by forgetting him? He had envisioned an amazing future with her.
He addresses his friend Baljeet and tells them him that he has left behind all women related trauma now, but he still doesn’t know how to leave behind his sorrow. The Patiala peg helps ease the pain.
