Lagi Lagi - Shantanu Moitra at Coke Studio @ MTV

 

At the soul of this song is a Keertan, and like all keertans this is a love song. It’s a song about a girl who has fallen in love with the moon. The lyrics talk about the girl complaining to the ‘night’ about how the ‘moon’ hides from her all day and at times disappears all together! Swanand Kirkire’s words were inspired by the moon & how it often forms the perfect accompaniment to love. Only this time, he wanted to reinterpret it in a completely different way.

 

This is a song about a girl confessing her love, all the while knowing that what she wishes for is unattainable. She is aware that her feelings will never be reciprocated but still can't wait to see the moon every night! Kaushiki Chakravarthy brings out this sweet pain through the song.

 

Read the lyrics here:

 

O ri sun bauri bauri chhori, jogi ko jiya mein na basaiyo

Jogi ka hai jagat thikana, jogi se tu chit na lagaiyo

Thagva hai thag lega matvala mukhrara

 


O ri raina tera chhona, chand hai chit chor
Mooh dikhaye adha pauna, tarse maan ka chakor


O ri raina tera chhona, chand hai chit chor
Mooh dikhaye adha pauna, tarse man ka chakor
Tarron ki dasht mein yeh, phirta banjara
Haan kyun mujhe bha gaya hai, zulmi aawara


Lagi, lagi, lagi, lagi,

Lagi , lagi, lagi, lagi, lagi re lagan chit chor
Lagi, lagi, lagi, lagi,

Lagi , lagi, lagi, lagi, lagi re lagan chit chor



Shaam pade dikhe mua, man bhatak jaye
Neendien ude bane dhua, tan mehek jaye
Ho dekh kar mera bandh jharokha, ghar nahi jaye
Kyu meri sooni si gali mein, yuhi mandaraye


Lagi, lagi, lagi, lagi,

Lagi , lagi, lagi, lagi, lagi re lagan chit chor
Lagi, lagi, lagi, lagi,

Lagi , lagi, lagi, lagi, lagi re lagan chit chor


O ri raina tera chhona, chand hai chit chor
Mooh dikhaye adha pauna, tarse man ka chakor
Tarron ki dasht mein yeh, phirta banjara
Haan kyun mujhe bha gaya hai, zulmi aawara


Lagi, lagi, lagi, lagi,

Lagi , lagi, lagi, lagi, lagi re lagan chit chor
Lagi, lagi, lagi, lagi,

Lagi , lagi, lagi, lagi, lagi re lagan chit chor

 

Jhumkhe mein jada usse, mala mein pehena
Mundiriya jada jada, moti na thehera
Haan jogi hai jogi ko manana sikh na paye
Haan hai suna har rite man mein, yeh to aye jaye re


Lagi, lagi, lagi, lagi,

Lagi , lagi, lagi, lagi, lagi re lagan chit chor
Lagi, lagi, lagi, lagi,

Lagi , lagi, lagi, lagi, lagi re lagan chit chor


O ri raina tera chhona, chand hai chit chor
Mooh dikhaye adha pauna, tarse man ka chakor
Tarron ki dasht mein yeh, phirta banjara
Haan kyun mujhe bha gaya hai, zulmi aawara


Hey lagi, lagi, lagi, lagi,

Lagi , lagi, lagi, lagi, lagi re lagan chit chor
Hey lagi, lagi, lagi, lagi,

Lagi , lagi, lagi, lagi, lagi re lagan chit chor

Hey lagi, lagi, lagi, lagi,

Lagi , lagi, lagi, lagi, lagi re lagan chit chor

Hey lagi, lagi, lagi, lagi,

Lagi , lagi, lagi, lagi, lagi re lagan chit chor
