Who is Bappi Lahiri’s fantasy woman?

The popular musician will celebrate his 60th birthday tomorrow. We just could not find a better occasion than this to salute Bappi da

We like Bappi Lahiri for his singing and his inimitable style. Bappi da will ring in his 60th birthday tomorrow and we want to give him a hatke surprise. So we quickly went down memory lane, revisited some of the quirkiest lyrics of Bappi da’s fun songs and converted them into English word-for-word. The ‘lost-in-translation’ effect we achieved through our naughty efforts is really worth a look.

Ooh la la (Film: The Dirty Picture)

Oooh la oooh la

Tu hai meri fantasy

Chuna na chuna na

Ab mein jawaan ho gayi


Oooh la oooh la

You are my fantasy

Don’t touch, don’t touch

Now I have become young!


Yaad aa raha hai (Film: Disco Dancer)


Yaad aa raha hai tera pyaar

Kahan hum kahan tum

hue tum kahan gum

Aabhi ja aabhi ja ek baar


Remembering your love

Where am I? Where you?

You me where got lost

Now come, now come one time!


Bambai se aaya mera dost (Film: Aap Ki Khatir)

Bambai se aaya mera dost

Dost ko sallam karo

Raat ko khao piyo

Din ko aaram karo


From Bombay has come my friend

Salute my friend

During the night eat drink

During the day relax you do


Raat Baki (Film: Namak Halaal)

Raat baki baat baki

hona hai jo ho jane do

Socho na, dekho toh, dekho haan , jan e jaan, mujhe pyaar se


Night remains, thing remains

Whatever that is waiting to happen, let it happen

Think not, watch, see, see darling, me with love


Tamma Tamma (Film: Thanedaar)

Tamma tamma loge

Tu premi aaha, mein premi aaha

Tu raazi aaha, mai raaziaaha

Phir kya daddy kya amma

Ek bas tu hi pyaar ke kaabil, saara jahan hai nikamma


Tamma tamma loge

You lover, me lover

You agree, me agree

Then what dad or mom (will do)?

Only you deserve my love, the rest of the world is useless
