Ang Laga De Re Lyrics

Ang laga de re
Mohe rang laga de re
Main to teri joganiya
Tu jog laga de re

Touch me with your body,
Color me (in your color)
I have left the world for you
give me your own wisdom..

[A jogi, yogi, is a hermit, someone who has left the worldly pleasures, and jogan is the female counterpart. However, she has here left everything for the love of her beloved and asks her to impart his yog, in a way the wisdom, to her as well, so that she can completely leave the world and be just his.]

Prem ka rog laga de re

Give me the this ailment of love,

Main to teri joganiya
Tu jog laga de re

Ram ratan dhan
Lagan magan man
Tan mora chandan re
Ujli kori preet piyaa
satrang laga de re

My jewel and money is just Raam,
my heart is completely immersed in him,
my body is like sandalwood [which smells of him]
My love is clean, white,
O beloved, color it in the seven colors..

Ang laga de re, mohe rang laga de re
Main to teri joganiya tu jog laga de re

Raat banjar si hai..
Kaale khanjar si hai..
Tere seene ki lau
Mere andar bhi hai
Tu hawaa de ise
To meraa tan jale
Jalaa de re sang jalaa de re
Mohe ang laga de re

The night seems barren,
and feels like a black dagger..
The flame of your chest
is within me too..
Give it some air [to burn more]
so that my body burns..
burn me with yourself,
touch me with your body..

Main to teri joganiya
Tu jog laga de re..

Raas hai raat mein
Teri har baat mein
Bolo main kya karoon
Aise haalaat mein
Hoon main teri malang
Tu hi mera nasha
Chadha de re bhang chadha de re
Prem ki bhang chadha de re

There is joy of love in the night,
and in everything you say..
tell me what I should do,
in such a situation..
I am addicted to you,
you alone are my dope,
make me intoxicated..
make me intoxicated with the drink of love*..

[Bhaang, or bhang, is a kind of marijuana, consumed mostly on the festival of Holi.]

Main to teri joganiya
Tu jog laga de re

Jog laga de re…
Prem ka rog laga de re
Main to teri joganiya
Tu jog laga de re

Ram ratan dhan
Lagan magan man
Tan mora chandan re
