मीर तक़ी मीर | Meer Taqi Meer — यारो मुझे मुआफ़ रखो मैं नशे में हूँ | yaaro mujhe mu’aaf rakho main nashe mein hoon (with English translation)

Translation: Turn Off

यारो मुझे मुआफ़ रखो मैं नशे में हूँ
अब दो तो जाम ख़ाली ही दो मैं नशे में हूँ

yaaro mujhe mu’aaf rakho main nashe mein hoon
ab do to jaam khaali hi do main nashe mein hoon

Dear friends, please excuse me (my behavior), I am very intoxicated
Give me only an empty goblet if at all now, I am already intoxicated

एक-एक क़ुर्त दौर में यूँही मुझे भी दो
जाम-ए-शराब पुर न करो मैं नशे में हूँ

ek-ek qurt daur mein yoon-hi mujhe bhi do
jaam-e-sharab pur na karo main nashe mein hoon

One swig is all I ask for in every round, that’s all I can take
Please don’t fill up my goblet, will you? I am very intoxicated

मस्ती से दरहमी है मेरी गुफ़्तगू के बीच
जो चाहो तुम भी मुझको कहो मैं नशे में हूँ

masti se darhami hai meri guftagu ke beech
jo chaaho tum bhi mujhko kaho main nashe mein hoon

In inebriation my speech will be slurred, and my words might offend you
I won’t mind – say whatever you want to me too! I am very intoxicated

या हाथों-हाथ लो मुझे मानिंद-ए-जाम-ए-मय
या थोड़ी दूर साथ चलो मैं नशे में हूँ

ya haathon-haath lo mujhe maanind-e-jaam-e-ma’y
ya thodi door saath chalo main nashe mein hoon

Hold me by the hand as I go along, like you would a goblet full of wine
Or please walk a little further with me, won’t you? I am very intoxicated

माज़ूर हूँ जो पाँव मेरा बेतरह पड़े
तुम सरगिराँ तो मुझसे न हो मैं नशे में हूँ

maazoor hoon jo paanv mera betarah pade
tum sargiraan to mujhse na ho main nashe mein hoon

My tread will be unsteady and I might stumble, I can’t help it
Please don’t be annoyed with me, will you? I am very intoxicated

भागी नमाज़-ए-जुम’आ तो जाती नहीं है कुछ
चलता हूँ मैं भी टुक तो रहो मैं नशे में हूँ

bhaagi namaaz-e-jum’a to jaati nahin hai kuchh
chalta hoon main bhi tuk to raho main nashe mein hoon

The Friday prayer congregation is not going away anytime soon, why hurry
I am coming along too, wait up for me, won’t you? I am very intoxicated

नाज़ुक-मिज़ाज आप क़यामत हैं ‘मीर’ जी
ज्यूँ शीशा मेरे मुँह न लगो मैं नशे में हूँ

naazuk-mizaaj aap qayaamat hain ‘Meer’ji
jyoon sheesha mere munh na lago main nashe mein hoon

‘Meer’, Sir, aren’t you of a very sensitive and fragile disposition! So,
Don’t try to be too friendly with me, beware, you! I am very intoxicated
(Lit.: Don’t come close to my mouth like a goblet, I am very intoxicated)
