Watch the whole video and read up on the inspiration, the lyrics and the people behind this song!

This song is about man’s eternally wandering spirit & the spirit’s constant search for peace & happiness. It’s about man getting caught up in everyday travails and losing sight of the bigger picture; his larger calling, his hidden potential. To do justice to these potent thoughts, Lyricist Manoj uses a verse by Amir Khusro as the alaap. Clinton takes these loaded lyrics and mixes them with a funky melody, embedding it in a pop/funk groove.

Here's the Lyrics to this Song:

 

 

Gori sove sej par mukh par daare kes,

Chal khusro ghar aapne saanjh bhayi chahun des,


 

Tu vi banjara te saajan main vi banjara,

Tu vi banjara te saajan main vi banjara,

Kahan talaashein thour thikaanaa,

Tu vi banjara te saajan main vi banjara

 

 

Tu vi banjara te saajan main vi banjara

Tu vi banjara te saajan main vi banjara

Kahan talaashein thour thikaanaa

Tu vi banjara te saajan main vi banjara

 


Darbadar sa kahan bhatke rooh ka tukda,

Pehen ke roj pachhaso dukhdaa,

Tu vi kaisa naasamajh hai samajh na paaye,

Mujhko kaun sa bhaaye mukhdaa,

Do chhor pe dono ore khade is intazaar mein is intazaar mein,

Sanson ke beech hairaan dil, baithaa kataar mein, baithaa kataar mein,

Banaaye roj roj bigaade, kaisi ghalti mitaata hai,

 


Tu vi banjara te saajan main vi banjara,

Tu vi banjara te saajan main vi banjara,

Kahan talaashein thour thikaanaa

Tu vi banjara te saajan main vi banjaraaa

 


Paani gaara maati dhuaan ye tan hai chithadaa chithadaa saara,

Padh padh pothi gyaani aisaa hua bus kamaaya kachadaa.

Jaise til mein tel hai jyon, chakmak mein aag,

Khuddkaa saayin khuddmein hai, jaag sake to jaag,

Ghatataa safar tooti naav par is beech dhaar mein, is beech dhaar mein,

Apnon ke beech bejaan dil, biktaa udhaar mein, biktaa udhaar mein,

Basaaye roj roj ujaade, kaisi marzi chalaata hai,

 


Tu vi banjara te saajan main vi banjara,

Tu vi banjara te saajan main vi banjara,

Kahan talaashein thour thikaanaa

Tu vi banjara te saajan main vi banjara

 


Tu vi banjara, main vi banjara

Kahan talaashein thour thikaanaa

Tu vi banjara te saajan main vi banjara, banjara, banjara !
