LYRICS

Tu Avin Bandra

Haal ki ey tera suna fir
Kinna chir hoiay milian
Ho gaye purey ki khab tere
Jan bachia ey koi gila

Je tun thak gia haen
Iko thaan baitthey-baitthian
Je ajjey sundayn shor oheo
Saalan purana

Tu avin Bandra
Tainu ithey changa lagega
Tu avin Bandra
Tainu ithey changa lagega

Jehrhian tu dourhan viche chhadian
Vekhin jinna puri keetian
Vekhin tu raaje nangey fired
Huran pakhey lamkian

Ucha uddin tu asmane
Khul juga tainu ik raaz
Ki rakhi samundar dhhid aapne
Ik kaali anni ghat

Tu avin Bandra
Taenu sab pata chalega
Tu avin Bandra
Taenu sab pata chalega
Tu avin Bandra
Taenu ithey changa lagega
Tu avin Bandra
Taenu ithey changa lagega

Je tun labhda eyn koi ik apna
Tuttia-futtia hoia supna
Sutt 'ta jihnu tu kadey
Lagda hai ik chor-bazaar ithey
Har sham samundar de kandey 'te
Farhin koi auto 'te kahin
Sab labh ju ethey
"Bhay! Carter Road" jan "Bandstand"
Pehlan das dan vira
Ethon de bha ne tikhe

Tu avin Bandra
Taenu sab pata lagega
Tu avin Bandra
Taenu sab pata lagega
Tu avin Bandra
Taenu sab pata chalega
Tu avin Bandra
Taenu sab pata chalega
Tu avin Bandra
Taenu sab pata chalega
Tu avin Bandra
Taenu ithey changa lagega

How’re you doing tell me
It’s been a while since we met
Have all your dreams been fulfilled
Or does some grudge remain

If you’ve gotten tired
Of sitting in one place
Or if you still listen to the same noise
From years before

Come to Bandra
You'll like it here
Come to Bandra
You’ll like it here

All the races you didn't complete
Come see those who finished them
Come see kings roaming naked
And fairies hanging from fans

Fly high up in the sky
And you’ll discover the secret
That the ocean hides in its gut
A blind black abyss

Come to Bandra
You’ll know it all
Come to Bandra
You’ll know it all
Come to Bandra
You’ll like it here
Come to Bandra
You'll like it here

If you’re looking for some
Ragged ol' dream
That you’d long discarded
There’s a flea market here
Every evening by the seashore
Get into an auto and say
You'll find it all here
"Brother! Carter Road" or "Bandstand"
Let me warn you though
The prices here are a bit steep

Come to Bandra
You'll know it all
Come to Bandra
You'll know it all
Come to Bandra
All will be revealed to you
Come to Bandra
All will be revealed to you
Come to Bandra
All will be revealed to you
Come to Bandra
You’ll like it here

I always thought of this as a 'small' song and envisioned a sparse treatment. One day I walked in to find Mauro conducting a 6-piece string section. He came out, listened to the parts and explained, "You know, a part of me is Arabic".
