Lyrics Overview

Lyrics Translated

Vaade karke na kade eh zubaan mukkri

I never go back on my promises 

Jehde fukkre ne muhron ohna de layi fukkri

I embarrass people who try to show off to me

Hunn mitran nu shaunk hai ni race’an laun da ni

Nowadays, your boy is not fond of races [competition]

Ni meri khich la lagaam mainu aakhe nukkri

My horse is asking me to slow down

Chitti sohniye kabootri vi rakhi hoyi ae

I’ve kept a beautiful, fair pigeon (could refer to cocaine)

Kaali already mitran ne shakhi hoyi ae

You’re boy has already taken the black [opium]

Thoda dekh ke friend’an kar choose nakhro

Girl, choose your friends wisely

Ni mainu tere naal di ne jhalli pakhi hoyi ae

Even they wanted to be with me

Saanu patdi ae saadgi na patte surkhi

I’m attracted to simplicity not flashiness

Ni main suttan Mexico kude uthan Turkey

I sleep in Mexico, and wake up in Turkey

Mera chef sun kehnda ajj ki khaoge ni

My chef asks me what I’d like to eat today

Dekh baitha main Dubai kude todan burki

Girl, look at me eating bites of roti in Dubai

Eh taan lokan nu hi chaleya ni luck lageya

These people think that I’ve just gotten lucky

Mera kinni vaari dharti naal nakk lageya

I’ve been pushed down to the ground many times

Jadon hikk utte VVS shine kardi

When that VVS (diamond chain) shines on my chest

Bhai pata lagda ke 22 lakh lageya

Bro, that’s when you realize it’s worth 22 lakh (2.2 million rupees) 

Aa dekh hip te clip biba marey sehntaan

The clip [gun] on my hip gives you a hint

Manifest vi kare naale kara mehntaan

That I manifest but also work hard

Tainu pata hoju velly naal pyar goriye

Girl, you know you’ll fall in love with me

Ni tu akh na milave laake rakhe ainak’an

That’s why you don’t make eye contact and keep your shades on

Assi pitth te ni hikk utte vaar kari da

We don’t backstab, but attack straight at your chest

Appa jealousy ni karde pyar kari da

We don’t get jealous and only give love

Ho aarhi bhannuga ya record toduga

They’ll either break their (other artists) pride or records

Banda assi jehde hisaab naal taiyar kari da

Those who train like me

Kade gaya ni dhayan taan school’an te kude

Girl, my attention never went towards school

Langi jaandi life bapu de asool’an te kude

I live my life following my father’s lessons

Jithe mildi ni mat behas karda ni yaar

Where my moral standards aren’t met, I don’t engage in discussion

Chup bulla utte aa te kahton phulla te kude

Girl, my lips stay sealed when the squirrel is playing on the flowers [good times]

Mera pehla pehla kandeya ne pair vaddta

At first, the thorns (difficulties in life) injured my feet

Mera time aaya kalla kalla kanda kaddta 

When it was my time, I overcame each obstacle

Kalle da hi rohb aa bathera goriye

Girl, I’m confident being alone

Ni taan hi toleyan ch mitran ne auna chhadta

I’ve stopped being part of groups

Vekh gutt 41 millimeter kude

Look at the 41mm [watch] on my wrist, girl

Dekh jatt thalle car 2 seater kude

Look this Jatt drives a 2-seater car

Sawa lakh di si whiskey Macallan layi

I spent 125,000 rupees on this Macallan whiskey

Das minute ch mukati ek litre kude

I finished a liter in 10 minutes

Haaye ni tainu dairy hi de doon behke folli varke

I’ll give you my diaries to page through

Lejavi gyan biba kole khadd ke

You can take some knowledge standing next to me

Kaliyan di knowledge batheri jatt nu

This Jatt knows plenty about writing songs

Ni halle likhda ni gaane main kitaban padh ke

But I never studied music from books

Kade socheya ni kinna utte chakke patshah

I never thought God would bring me so much success

Khush rehne aa ni jithe saanu rakhe patshah

I’m content with whatever God has given me

Esse karke ni kade kithe jhooth boleya

That’s why I have never spoken a lie

Kyunki utte baitha dekhda ae sache patshah

Because God is above us watching

Ni aa jeondiya aa zameer’an dekh bal rahiyan ne

Look at these minds on fire

Mainu ajj dass kal diyan kal rahiyan ne

Today, new artists try to predict my future

Kade kade che vi nu chalavan goriye 

Sometimes I use my 6th sense

Ni dekh jatt diyan panj sense’an chal rahiyan ne

Look at this Jatt’s 5 senses working

Jadon khet dekheya te aappan bauni sikh li

When I saw the fields I learned to plow

Jadon mili mehbooba te barauni sikh li

When I met my beloved I learned to defend her

Overall taan halaat aap theek kare ni

Overall, I’ve improved my conditions

Ni roti pakki ni mili te aappan launi sikh li

I didn’t get a cooked roti, so I learned to cook
