Sadi Gali - Punjabi Lyrics and Meaning (in English) - Tanu Weds Manu

Another superb song makes its appearance on the Bollywood scene. Sadi Gali from Tanu Weds Manu is a perfect Punjabi Dance track. Performed by Lehmber Husainpuri from RDB, words aren't sufficient to describe it. Just listening to it makes you want to jump up and start tapping your feet to the music. It's even garnered over a million plays on Youtube. In an effort to make this song's lyrics accessible to the masses, here's the meaning of the song in English paragraph by paragraph. I made it while listening to this song non-stop on loop. Hope you enjoy it!


 

Kudiyan de vich phir hassdi khed di
[Hasdi] x 4 Khed di

Ho, gutt di parandi teri naag wangu meldi
[Naagawa-] x 4 -ngu meldi

Again you're smiling and playing in the midst of girls
Ho, Your "gutt da paranda"* resembles the moves of a snake

gutt da paranda = An artificial hair extender often worn by Punjabi women to increase the length of their locks.

Kudiyan de vich phire hassdi khed di
College nu jaave ni tu naag wangu meldi
Aashiqan nu darsh dikhaya karo
Ni kadi sadi gali bhul ke vi
[Aaya karo ji kadi sadi gali bhul ke vi] x 3 times

Again you're smiling and playing in the midst of girls
You go to college and your moves resemble those of a snake
You show yourself to your umpteen lovers
Oh, Come by my way sometime, even if by mistake
[Oh, please do come by my way sometime, even if by mistake] x 3

Goriyan gallan 'ch tere toye badey fabde
[Toye] x 4 badey fabde

Mitran pyaaran nu sohne badey lagde
[Sonhe be] x 4 badey lagde

Your dimples look superb on your fair cheeks
Friends and Near-Dear ones find them really pretty
[Toye = Dimples]


Goriyan gallan 'ch tere toye badey fabde
Mitran pyaaran nu sohne badey lagde
Thoda saade utte taras bhi khaya karo
Ni kadi sadi gali bhul ke vi
[Aaya karo ji kadi sadi gali bhul ke vi] x 3 times

Your dimples look superb on your fair cheeks
Friends and Near-Dear ones find them really pretty
Have some pity on me too
Oh, Come by my way sometime, even if by mistake
[Oh, please do come by my way sometime, even if by mistake] x 3

Jidro vi lange munde maarde seetiyan
[Maarde] x 4 seetiyan

Ho kar de ishaare koi maarda geetiyan
[Maarda] x 4 geetiyan

Wherever you pass by guys whistle at you
Somebody makes passes and runs rings around you (Pun: throws small pellets at you)


Jidro vi lange munde maarde seetiyan
Kar de ishaare koi maarda geetiyan
Sajna nu aina na sataya karo
Ni kadi sadi gali bhul ke vi
Aaya karo ji kadi sadi gali bhul ke vi

Wherever you pass by guys whistle at you
Somebody makes passes and throws pebbles at you
Don't trouble your lovers so much
Oh, come by my way sometime, even if by mistake
Oh, please do come sometime, even if by mistake

Rab ne husn ditta maan nai karida
[Maan ni] x 4 karida
Aakkadan di agg vich ainwe nai sadee da
[Ainwe ni] x 4 sadee da

God has given you looks, don't be proud
Don't burn so in the fire of arrogance


Rab ne husn ditta maan nai kari da
Aakkadan di agg vich ainwe nai sadee da
Kade pyaar wala meeh barsaya karo
Ni kadi sadi gali bhul ke vi
[Aaya karo ji kadi sadi gali bhul ke vi] x 3

God has given you looks, don't be proud
Don't burn so in the fire of arrogance
Do shower your droplets of love
Oh, come by my way sometime, even if by mistake
[Oh, please do come sometime, even if by mistake] x 3

Lehmber ne ban jana tera manmeet ni
[Tera ma] x 4 manmeet ni

Sacchi succhi ohde naal pala tu preet ni
[Pala tu] x 4 preet ni

Lehmber (the singer) is going to become your lover
Get involved with him absolutely truly (with a pure heart)


Lehmber ne ban jana tera manmeet ni
Sacchi succhi ohde naal pala tu preet ni
Saareyan nu mangar na laaya karo
Ni ji kadi sadi gali bhul ke vi
[Aaya karo ji kadi saadi gali bhul ke vi] x 7

Lehmber (the singer) is going to become your lover
Get involved with him absolutely truly
But don't bring everyone with you (when you come by)
Oh, come by my/his way sometime, even if by mistake
[Oh, please do come sometime, even if by mistake] x 7
