ਸੁੰਦਰ ਮੁੰਦਰੀਏ ਹੋ!
ਤੇਰਾ ਕੀਤਾ ਜੱਟਾ ਵੱਡਾ ਬੇਲੀ ਲੱਠੀ ਦੇ ਕੱਟੀਏ ਨੇ ਮੱਕੋ ਪਿੱਟਾ ਹੋ!
ਕੇਰਾ ਸਿੱਧਾ ਲੇ ਗਇਆ ਪੀਰ ਨਾਨਾ ਬੈਰੀ ਲੱਠੀ ਦੇ ਕੱਟੀਏ ਨੇ ਕਾਣੀ ਪੀਟੀ ਹੋ!
ਸੁੰਦਰ ਮੁੰਦਰੀਏ ਹੋ!
ਹਇ ਦਾਰੂਂ ਕਿਸਮੇ ਦੀ!
ਹੇਠ ਜੱਟ ਬਣ੍ਹ ਦਿਤੇ ਬੀਅੜੀ ਨੇ ਬੀਅੜੀ ਹੈਠ ਮੇਰੀ ਲੱਠੀ ਨੇ ਬੀਅੜੀ ਹੋ!
ਹੇਠ ਜੱਟ ਬਣ੍ਹ ਦਿਤੇ ਬੀਅੜੀ ਨੇ ਬੀਅੜੀ ਹੈਠ ਮੇਰੀ ਲੱਠੀ ਨੇ ਬੀਅੜੀ ਹੋ!

Sunder mundriye ho!
Tera kaun vicaharaa ho!
Dullah bhatti walla ho!
Dullhe di dhee vyayae ho!
Ser shakkar payee ho!
Kudi da laal pathaka ho!
Kudi da saalu paatta ho!
Salu kaun samete!
Chache choori kutti! zamidara lutti!
Zamindaar sudhaye!
bade bhole aaye!
Ek bhola reh gaya!
Sipahee far ke lai gaya!
Sipahee ne mari eet!
Sanoo de de lohri te teri jeeve jodi!
Bhaanvey ro te bhaanvey pit!


Oh Sunder and munder
Who will think about you
He is Dulla Bhatti
Dulla's daughter got married
He gave 1 kg sugar!
The girl is wearing a red suit!
But her shawl is torn!
Who will stitch her shawl?!
The uncle made choori! The landlords looted it!
Landlords are beaten up then!
Lots of innocent guys came to save
One innocent boy got left behind
The police arrested him!
The policeman hit him with a brick!
Give us lohri ..long live your couple!
Whether you cry, or bang your head later!

Hulle nee maiyee hulle do beri patte jhulle
Do jhul payeaan kahjurran
Khajurran suttya meva
Es munde de ghar mangeva
Es munde di voti nikdi
Oh! khandi choori, kutdi
Kut! Kut! Bharaya thaal woti bave nananaa nal
Ninaan te wadi parjaee
So kudma de ghar aayee!
mein lohri lain aayee!


Two berry leaves are hanging
Two date leaves are also hanging
The tree shed the fruit
There’s an engagement in this boy’s house
This boy’s wife is short
She eats and grinds choori
She grinds. She grinds. With filled plate she sits with her sisters-in-law
With the Sister-in-law is the elder son’s wife
They are in their in-laws house
I have come to take my Lohri.

Saalee paireen juttee
Jeevey sahib dee kuttee
Kuttee no nikalya phoraah
Jeevey sahib da ghorah
Ghorey uttay kaathee
Jeevey sahib da haathee
Haathee neh maarya padd
Dey maaee daanya da chajj.


My sister-in-law has slippers on her feet
Long may live the master’s bitch
The bitch developed a sore
Long live the master's horse
The horse has a saddle
Long live the master's elephant
The elephant let out a loud fart
Hey old woman, give us basket full of popcorn.
