Akhiyan Ch Tu Vasda

You wouldve probably heard the song being used as a background number in Oye Lucky Lucky Oye (2008), one of my fav films in the recent times. Lovely lyrics sung in a melodious and simple way.

Inna Akhiyan Ch Paavan Kive Kajla Ve
Akhiyan Ch Tu Vasda
Har Vele Channa Mera Tere val Muh Ve
Buliyan ch Naa Tera
Akhiyan ch Tu Ve
Jadon Hasdi, Bhulekha menu Painda Ve
Haseya Ch Tu Hasda

Lamiyan si Vaatan Channa
Nere Nere Aaea Tu
Akhiyan De Raahi Aa Ke
Dil Ch Samayeya Tu
Jadon Puchdi aa Piyar Diyan Gallan Ve
Hauli Hauli tu dasda
Inna Akhiyan Ch Paavan Kive Kajla Ve
Akhiyan Ch Tu Vasda

Masa Masa Jindari Main, Pyar vich Rangi Ve
Aj Menu Jaapda Main, tere Naal mangi Ve
Aj Khushiyan da Ho Gea Savera Ve
Gam Saathon Door Bhajda
Inna Akhiyan Ch Paavan Kive Kajla Ve…
