Happy, happy new year to you,
Happy, happy new year to you,
Happy, happy new year
To you
And the people revelling,
Gossiping, chatting warmly,
Hand-shaking,
Greeting each other,
Hugging, embracing,
Singing, singing and dancing,
Dancing and singing,
Flanking each other,
Shoulder over shoulder,
Dance, dance you
But not with daru,
The bottle of daru,
Gulping and welcoming it!

The new year has not come,
Has not, but about to
Come, the clock hand showing,
The electronic watch indicating,
Impressing, touching
The twelve
And with the touch of,
Crackers bursting,
Sparkling,
People shouting,
Dancing and greeting
And revelling,
Happy, happy new year to you,
The same to you!
Let the new, new year bring, bring you,
You lots of happiness,
Let, let the new year
Lots, lots of happiness and joys,
Joys to you and your family,
My best wishes,
Wishes for you and your family,
Dance, dance you,
Revel, revel you, but end you not yourselves
In the joy of greeting and revelling,
Daru mat pina, bhaiyya,
Daru pi ke barbad naa kar lena, mere dost.

On the eve of the new year,
Drink you, drink you not as thus
That you will end yourself,
Will fail to see a new morning
Dawning upon, my friend,
Daru mat pina, bhaiyya,
Daru pi ke barbad naa kar lena, mere dost,
Do not take daru, big brother,
Having drunk too much destroy you not
Yourself, my friend,
On the eve of the new year,
Happy, happy new year,
New year to you,
But never, never turn it,
Turn it into a drunkards’ party,
Never, never into,
Into bootleggers, drug peddlers
And woman traffickers’ party!
