Bachche Ki Jaan Lyrics
What kind of commotion is this? It feels like a weird earthquake. I feel breathless and my heart feels miserable.
On Bachche Ki Jaan, a fun track, an extremely old father-son duo are at loggerheads over the father's demand that his son write a love letter. To which he reacts in shock.
WORD - Hulchul - Commotion, Bhuchal - Earthquake, Saansein Phooli - Breathless.
I am scared and hope that my heartbeat doesn't stop now. I keep getting tricked and fooled, what kind of trap is this?
It's ironic that the name of the song has the word "Kid" in it. But literally it does make sense since even though he is old, he is still the "Kid" of his ather.
WORD - Jaal - Net.
Are you going to blindfold me and take aim at my head?
WORD - Bachche Ki Jaan Loge Kya is an Hindi idiom which means "Are you going to take the life out of this kid?" - A reference to being troubled and harassed to the limit.
The son wonders why his father is so adamant about him writing a love letter and this makes him extremely nervous. He does not know what could possibly happen if he sends it.
Chehre ka rang hai
Badhti betabiyan aur
Maamla dang hai
Bachna mumkin nahi sab
Koshish bekaar hai
The colour on my face seems to be fading off now and the restlessness keeps on increasing.
Things are getting weirder by the day and it is impossible to escape from this. All attempts to wriggle out of this are worthless.
Eventually he realises that he will have to write that love letter come what may. His father will not let him be unless he does so.
WORD - Betabiyan - Restlessness, Chehre Ka Rang Udna - is an Hindi idiom which means "To feel embarrassed and shocked."
Why does it feel like this is some war? The ground under my feet has been taken away. Now will you tax me for this too?
WORD - Lagaan - Tax.
