Jai Ho Lyrics

Jai Ho!
Aaja aaja jind shamiyaane ke taley
Aaja zari waale neele aasmaane ke taley
Jai Ho!

Ratti ratti sachchi maine jaan gawayi hai
Nach Nach koylon pe raat bitaayi hai
Ankhiyon ki neend maine phoonkon se udaa di
Gin gin taarey maine ungli jalayi hai
Eh Aaja aaja jind shamiyaane ke taley
Aaja zari waale neele aasmaane ke taley

Baila! Baila!
(Dance! Dance!)

Ahora conmigo, tu baila para hoy
(Now with me, you dance for today)

Por nuestro dia de movidas,
(For our day of moves,)

los problemas los que sean
(whatever problems may be)

Salud!
(Cheers!)

Baila! Baila!
(Dance! Dance!)

Jai Ho!

Chakh le, haan chakh le, yeh raat shehed hai
Chakh le, haan rakh le,
Dil hai, dil aakhri hadd hai
Kaala kaala kaajal tera
Koi kaala jaadu hai na?
Aaja aaja jind shamiyaane ke taley
Aaja zari waale neele aasmaane ke taley

Jai Ho!

Kab se haan kab se jo lab pe ruki hai
Keh de, keh de, haan keh de
Ab aankh jhuki hai
Aisi aisi roshan aankhein
Roshan dono heerey hain kya?
Aaja aaja jind shamiyaane ke taley
Aaja zari waale neele aasmaane ke taley

Jai Ho!

Slumdog Millionaire - Jai Ho English Translation
If you have a better translation please post it here.

Jai Ho = Something between “Hail” and “Hallelujah”

Come, come my Life, under the canopy

Come under the blue brocade sky!

Iota by iota, I have lost my life, in faith

I’ve passed this night dancing on coals

I blew away the sleep that was in my eyes

I counted the stars till my finger burned

Come, come my Life, under the canopy

Come under the blue brocade sky!

Taste it, taste it, this night is honey

Taste it, and keep it,

It’s a heart; the heart is the final limit

You dark black kohl

It’s some black magic, isn’t it?

Come, come my Life, under the canopy

Come under the blue brocade sky!

For how long, how very long

It’s been on your lips

Say it, now say it

The eye is downcast

Such lit up eyes

Are they two lit-up diamonds(….) ?

Come, come my Life, under the canopy

Come under the blue brocade sky!

Here is the acceptance speech of A.R. Rahman from The 81st Academy Awards

I just want to thank again the whole crew of Slumdog Millionaire, especially Danny Boyle for giving such a great opportunity. And the whole, all the people from Mumbai. The essence of the film which is about optimism and the power of hope in the lives, and all my life I had a choice of hate and love. I chose love and I’m here. God bless.

    I speak a little Hindi and a mixture of Punjabi.
    I’m not sure what Jai Ho means,
    but I do know it doesn’t mean, “It Rocks,”
    As others had said…
    Also you spelled jaadu, but it’s spelled “Jadoo”, and it means “Magic”
    :)
    (Just saying)

  32. Vinay Acharya Says:

    @dd- Its not ROCK!! ROCK!! U idiot. Dont claim what u dont know about. So many sane people have talked about the lyrics here n u cum bk again with Rock Rock. Guess, u need a rock on ur head for spoiling the meaning of this wonderful lyrics. Moron!! Victory to thee…is the precise meaning of Jai Ho. Ask Indians (there isn’t anyone who doesnt knw wat JAI HO means) instead of just having a conversation among people who knw nothing but ROCK..HAIL…n HALLALUJAH !!

    Peace
