Gallan Tere Yaar Diyan Tenu Dasda
I'm about to tell you some things about your good friend

Sun Sun Veerna Kaleja Machda
After listening to them, my chest is burning with anger

Gurfateh Pichhon Likhan Haal Veereya 
After greeting you, I'm writing my true feelings to you

Hundi Anhoni Mere Naal Veereya
The impossible is happening with me right now, my brother

Hor Saare Angi Saaki Sukh Veerna
Everything else around me is good, my brother

Bhag Te Ghukkar Dinde Dukh Veerna
Bhag and Ghukkar give me a hard time, my brother




Ted Toove Chadre Gallan Ch Gaaniyan
Hovering chadre (a traditional Punjabi garment worn by men) and necklaces on their necks

Chittiyan Paggan Te Taure Vaang Jaaniyan
White turbans and they compose themselves like likeable men

Turde Jadon Ne Hale Hale Dharti
When they walk, the whole earth shakes

Maar Maar Gehre Veehi Nivin Karti
They've keep roaming around, and they've lowered the levels of the lanes

O Maar De Khangure Main Tan Chup Veerna
They make a lot of noise but I stay quiet, my brother

Bhag Te Ghukkar Dinde Dukh Veerna
Bhag and Ghukkar give me a hard time, my brother




Gichi Picche Matt Kende Hundi Rann Di
They say that a woman's brain is at the back of her neck

Vurra Samjhayi Beero Nahiyo Mann Di
I've stopped her many times, but Beero (short for Balbiro) doesn't listen

Na Eh Jeon Dindi Na Eh Aap Mardi
She doesn't let me live, and she doesn't die herself

Methon Nahiyo Sambhi Di Izaat Ghar Di
I no longer can protect the dignity and respect of the house

Hor Kise Gall Di Na Bhukh Veerna
I do not need anything else, my brother

Bhag Te Ghukkar Dinde Dukh Veerna
Bhag and Ghukkar give me a hard time, my brother




Vekhiya Main Chaar Bande Kathe Karke
I've tried gathering a few wise men [to solve this problem]

Karde Makhaul Sagon Saare Rall Ke
Instead, they all get together and make fun of me

Tod Ke Eh Dil Mera Saare Hassde
They break my heart and laugh

Kalla Kera Vekh Saare Taahne Kassde
Seeing that I'm all alone, they insult and ridicule me

Kalla Na Ujhari Hove Rukh Veerna
There shouldn't be just one tree alone in a deserted place, my brother

Bhag Te Ghukkar Dinde Dukh Veerna
Bhag and Ghukkar give me a hard time, my brother




Bharti Karaya Main Tainu Dukh Bhar Ke
I got a lot of pain after getting you enlisted in the army 

Likhda Han Hikk Te Pathar Thar Ke
I am writing to you with a lot of courage and bravery

Bhag Atte Ghukkar Di Pakki Aadi Eh
Bhag and Ghukkar are in this together

Beero Teri Bhabhi Mall Naal Maadi Eh
Your sister-in-law Beero is sleeping with Ghukkar

Eh Hati Na Hatayi Ehnu Chuk Veerna, Ohna Di Chuk Veerna
She doesn't stop even after told so, she's being pampered by them, my brother

Bhag Te Ghukkar Dinde Dukh Veerna
Bhag and Ghukkar give me a hard time, my brother



Marhi Da Ni Virka Loki Taane Kassde
I'm the lamplight at an alter, and people are shooting taunts at me

Jeonde Mar Chale Asi Ghugg Vasde
I'm dying while alive and well

Lammi Shooti Leh Ke Chheti Aaja Sucheya
Oh Sucha, take a long break [from the army] and make a return back

Ujhre Jahe Ghar Nu Vasa Ja Sucheya
Save this house that is empty and dead

Ikko Khoon Ikko Maa Di Kukh Veerna
We're one blood, from one womb of one mother

Bhag Te Ghukkar Dinde Dukh Veerna
Bhag and Ghukkar give me a hard time, my brother

Hor Saare Angi Saaki Sukh Veerna
Everything else around me is good, my brother

Bhag Te Ghukkar Dinde Dukh Veerna
Bhag and Ghukkar give me a hard time, my brother
