Challa by Gurdas Mann - The Best Song Ever in Indian Music history

The Living Legend, Gurdas Mann, has recorded the best song ever in the Indian Music industry. The song is titled Challa and is from a film in the early 1980's Long Da Lishkara which was a blockbuster fulm as well and this song is a folklore that the lyrics are over 200 years old! This is no joke! Indian Music is proud to have such an artist and such a track deepened in its culture. The song is truly a masterpiece and even if heard 1 million times, it will never bore your ears, however, will make you appreciate it even further. I am writing the lyrics below to this beloved legend song that will live forever...

Gurdas Maan - Challa

Ho jaavo ni koi mor liyavo,
ni mere naal gaya ajj lad ke,
Oh allah kare jeh aa jaave sohna,
Devan jaan kadma vich dhar ke.
Ho Challa beri oye buhe,
Ve vatan mahi da door e,
Ve jaana pehle poor e,
Ve gall sun challeya chora,
Ve kahda laya ee jhora.
Ho challa khooh te dhariye,
Challa khooh te dhariyeve gallan mooh te kariye,
Ve sacche rabb ton dariye,
Ve gall sun challeya dhola,
Ve rabb ton kahda ee ohla.
Ho challa kaaliyan mirchan,
Ve mohra pee ke marsaan,
Ve sire tere chdsan,
Ve gall sun challeya dhola,
Ve saad ke keeta ee kola.
Ho challa nau nau theve,
Ve puttar mithde meve,
Ve allah sabh nu deve,
Ve gall sun challeya kanvaan,
Ve manvaan thandiyan chaanvan.
Ho challa kann diyan dandian,
Ve saare pind vich bhandian,
Ve gallan chajj paa chandian,
Ve gall sun challeya dhola,
Ve saad ke keeta ee kola.
Ho challa gal di ve gani,
Ve tur gaye dilan de jani ve meri dukhan di kahani,
Ve aa ke sunja dhola ve tetton khada ee ohla
Ho challa paya ee gehne,
Oye sajan veli na rehne oye dukh zindri de sehne,
Ve gal sun chalia dhola ve kahda pana ee raula.
