Sachi-Yeh-Kahani-Hai

Seems in 1997, I was in an inspired-song writing mood, and wrote a few more lyrics in English for a few songs. This one is an interesting song “Sachchi Ye Kahani Hai” from the movie Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa, (1994) sung by the Amit Kumar, Udit Narayan, and Vijeta Pandit.

Try to listen to the song (linked), and sing along if you can. 🙂

23rd June, 1997 | 11:20 – 11:45

Long Music.

Introduction dialog:

Hello Friends,
What you are going to hear, is not just a song. It’s a true story. The real story of a real Don.

This is a true story,
listen my dear friends,
here in your city,
was a young man;
honest, loving, and an
unloved young man –
how to say he
becaaaame,
the Big Don.
The Big Don.

This is a true story,

Wherever he went for getting a job,
all he got was an another jab –

but he was a young guy,
young at his heart,
soon he left the
world of middle class.

But he was a young guy,

dialog
The day he became the Don, people started to fear him. He became a terror. What can I say more – the whole world was at his feet!

Tho’ what he wanted,
he had got,
but his hea-art
was still sad.
He’d have been happy
if he’d got –
if he’d got the loooooove
of the world!
Of the world!

This is a true story,
listen my dear friends,
here in your city,
was a young man;
honest, loving, and an
unloved young man –
how to say he
becaaaame,
the Big Don.

Don. Don. Don.
The Big Don.

long music.

How should I say
more of his tales,
lives of such
have always been stale.

His own people
never gave him love,
the darling of his heart
also left him yaar!

Among his friends,
he was king,
Used to dance,
laugh and sing.
But those who knew him,
knew him close,
knew he was in lots,
lots of pain.
Lots of pain.

This is a true story,
listen my dear friends,
here in your city,
was a young man;
honest, loving, and an
unloved young man –
how to say he
becaaaame,
the Big Don.

Don. Don. Don.
The Big Don.
Don. Don. Don.
The Big Don.
Don. Don. Doooooon!
