‘Ke dil kare chu che, chu che. 75 sadiyaan later.. che. My heart says chu che, chu che, che’

Gaana chala do Gaana chala do’

7. Caller tune – humshakals
‘Caller Tune baby
Mujhe apni bana le caller tune soniye’

‘Tere pyaar ka nasha kabhi aar kabhi paar
Tera pyaar pyar pyar hookah bar’
Honest lyrics: The lyricist writes about the intoxication of love that goes haywire and is uncontrolled. To further strengthen his views, he compares it with a hukka bar. Why? Hukka because dhuaa as in smoke, symbolising the unpredictability of love, and bar because um because he can.

Sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny’
