Be it love, heartbreak, romance or tragedy, Bollywood has a song for your every mood. While some of our desi tracks have to power to bring tectonic changes to our emotions, there are some songs that simply knock the wind out of us with their absurdity.
It’s amazing to see how our B-town lyricists at times can go overboard in expressing their views and can literally change everything, that till date might have made sense to you.
Here’s a list of Bollywood songs with crazy lyrics that we totally love, but for the life of us can’t understand.
1. Badtameez Dil- ‘Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani’
“Paan me pudina dekha, naak ka nagina dekha,
chikni chameli dekhi, chikna kamina dekha,
chaand cheater hoke cheat kiya toh,
Saare taare bole gilli gilli akha.”
Ranbir, we love you man, but WTF. What were the lyricists thinking?
2. ABCDEFGHI – ‘Hum Saath Saath Hai’
“A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z
I love you!
A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z
I love you!”
This song literally made our childhood, but try listening to it now and you’ll feel like stabbing someone.
3. Where’s The Party Tonight? – ‘Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna’
“Where’s the party tonight?
Somewhere down the road.
Where’s the party tonight?
On the dance floor.”
Okay, so this one is not so far out. But when a song answers its own question, we have a problem.
4. Aaya Mausam Dosti Ka- ‘Maine Pyaar Kiya’
“Tum ladki ho, mein ladka hu.”
Thanks, man, THAAANKKKSS! We never knew our gender before this.
5. Hookah Bar- ‘Khiladi 786’
“Tera pyaar pyaar pyaar, hooka bar.”
Yea, we all love the occasional Hookah sessions with the gang, but I simply couldn’t understand why is one’s love like a Hookah bar? If anyone of you did, please let me know.
6. Ande Ka Funda- ‘Jodi No. 1’
“Anda agar na hota to murgiyaan na hoti, murgiyon ke bin maze ki partiyaan na hoti, gar partiyaan na hoti to aashiqui na hoti, jo aashiqui na hoti to zindagi na hoti,
ande se milti murghi murgi se milta andam, patna ho ya batinda ghar ghar mein milta anda, is mein chupa hai jeevan ka fal safa. Aao sikhao tume ande ka funda, yeh nahin pyare koi maamule banda.”
I can’t even…can you?
7. Sunny Sunny Sunny- ‘Yaariyan’
“Aaj blue hai paani paani paani paani paani paani,
Aur din bhi sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny.”
Stop right there, yes the water is blue, we get it.
8. Dum Maaro Dum- ‘Dum Maaro Dum’
“Unche se uncha banda, potty peh bethe nanga.”
It’s clearly the case of lack of common sense! After all who goes for *ugh* potty with their pants on? We didn’t need a song to say that! But yeah, thanks for the information.
9. Dreamum Wakeupum – ‘Aiyaa’
“Dreamum Wakeupum Critical Conditionum”
Have a crush on a Malayali? Well, your language guide is here. Just add “umm” after every word and you are sorted unless the person thinks you need real help.
10. Jab Tak Rahega Samose Mein Aaloo- ‘Mr & Mrs Khiladi’
“Jab tak rahega samose mein aaloo,
tera rahunga, o meri shaloo.”
Never use this line to impress someone, believe us when we say so!
11. Sheila Ki Jawani- ‘Tees Maar Khan’
“My name is Sheila
Sheila ki jawani
I’m too sexy for you
main tere haath na aani”
Well, why are you telling us all of this btw?
12. Caller Tune- ‘Humshakals’
“Mujhe apni bana le caller tune…soniye.”
Nice suggestion. I just wish we knew if she did indeed make him his caller tune.
13. Aa Khushi Se Khudkushi Kar Le- ‘Darling’
“Mai bhi yahan tu bhi yahan, betabiyaan bhee hai jawan
mere janiya mere ishk kaa dil me zeher bhar le,
aa khushee se khudkhushee karle “
I hope someone checked on the lyricist after they wrote his. Clearly, this was a cry for help!
14. Shirt Da Button- ‘Kya Super Cool Hai Hum’
“Haye teri shirt da main ta button soniye.
baalon ka tere main haye clip ho gaya”
If a boy ever tries to say all this to a girl, he just might land in prison for eve-teasing!
15. Ek Chumma Tu Mujhko Udhar De De- ‘Chhote Sarkar’
“Ek chumma tu mujhko udhaar dai de,
aur badle may U.P, Bihar lai le.”
That’s just Lalu Prasad Yadav talking!
