Beedi / बीडी (from Omkara)

If anyone can help with the complete lyrics for Beedi from Omkara, I'd be very, very grateful -- this is a fantastic song by Vishal Bharadwaj with lyrics by Gulzar, that deserves to be available as text. My Hindi is still not good enough for me to do it myself, and no one else has written this song up completely, so far. If you can help, send me email (check my profile for addie), or write a comment on this post. I'll be sure to give you credit here, when the complete text is up.

these incomplete lyrics for Beedi are from http://www.indiafm.com/lyrics/song/51462/index.html

Check Ankur Jain's blog for his Aug 2006 Archive, where you can find his lyrics for Beedi.

naa ghilaaf
naa lihaaf
naa ghilaaf
naa lihaaf
thandi hawa bhi khilaaf sasuri
naa ghilaaf
naa lihaaf
thandi hawa bhi khilaaf sasuri
o kitni sardi hai kisika lihaal layile
jaa padosi ke chulhe se aag layile
jaa padosi ke chulhe se aag layile

beedi jalai le
jigar se piya
jigar maa badi aag hai
beedi jalai le jigar se piya
jigar maa badi aag hai

dhua na nikari o lab se piya
ah haa
dhua na nikari o lab se piya
je duniya badi jhaag hai

o beedi jalai le jigar se piya
jigar maa badi aag hai

naa ghilaaf
naa lihaaf
thandi hawa bhi khilaaf sasuri
o kitni sardi hai kisika lihaal layile
jaa padosi ke chulhe se aag layile
jaa padosi ke chulhe se aag layile

naa kasoor
naa fatoor
naa kasoor
naa fatoor
bina juram ke hujoor
marr gayi
ho marr gayi

aise ek din dupaheri bulai liyo re
baandh ghungru kacehri lagai liyo re
bulai liyo re
bulai liyo re
dupaheri
lagai liyo re
lagai liyo re
kacehri

angethi chadahi le
jigar se piya
jigar maa badi aag hai
beedi jalai le
jigar se piya
jigar maa badi aag hai

na toh chakkua ki dhaar
na daraati na kataar
na toh chaa-kua ki dhaar
na daraati na kataar
aisa kaate ke daat ka nisaan chod de
je kataai to koi bhi kisaan chod de
o aise jaalim ka chod de makaan chod de
re billo
jaalim ka chod de makaan chod de
aise jaalim ka
o aise jaalim ka
aise jaalim ka chod de makaan chod de

na bulaya
na bataya
na bulaya
na bataya
mhane neend se jagaya hai re
aisa chaukail haath mein naseeb aa
woh elaichi khilai ke kareeb aa gaya

koyla jalai le
jigar se piya
jigar maa badi aag hai

kitni sardi hai kisi ka lihaaf lei le
o jaa padosi
o jaa padosi
jaa jaa padosi
o jaa padosi ke chulhe se aag layile
