Lyrics and Translation of the Song

Rung de rangrez, Rung de rangrez (x4)

Dye me, dye me, dye me, dye me  (x4)

Rungreza Rungreza Rungreza (x4)

O Dyer, O dyer, O dyer (x4)

Surmai shamo se mil ke
Satrange sapno main sil ke
Tujh main hi ghul jaon main Rungreza
Holi main ishq ki khalon
Gar beparwahi jhailon
Tujhay paon khud kho jaon Rangreza

In the company of grey evenings
Woven in colourful dreams
After being mixed in your soul, O dyer
I would play the Holi of Ishaq(love)
If I suffer being neglected
Would find you in my own loss, O dyer!

Rungreza Rungreza Rungreza Rungreza (x2)

O dyer, O dyer, O dyer, O dyer (x2)

Mohay apnay hi rang main rang ly nijam (x2)

Dye me in your own hue, O Nijam (x2)

Tu hai sahib mora maghu by Ilahi
Mohay apnay hi rang main rang ly nijam (x2)

You are my master, O beloved of God
Dye me in your own hue, O Nijam (x2)

O piya milan ki aas hai man mein
Naino mein barsatein hain
Aa piya milan ki aas hai mann mein
Nainon mein barsatein hain

I have a hope in my heart of meeting my beloved
My eyes are shedding tears like monsoon clouds
I have a hope in my heart of meeting my beloved
My eyes are shedding tears like monsoon clouds

Tanhai ke chup angan mein
Meri un se baatein hain
Mori chunariya pi ki pagariya (x3)
Mohay dono basanti rang le nijaam (x2)
Tu hai sahib mora, mehbood e Ilahi
Mohay dono basanti rang le nijaam

In the courtyard of loneliness
I talk to him
My headdress and the turbine of my lover (x3)
Dye both of them red O Nijaam (x2)
You are my master, O beloved of God
Dye both of them red O Nijaam

Thamein jo sham ki raahein
Din rang de rang de shamein
Har pehar rangen rangen rangreza
Bas rang ab mujh ko rang de
Mera aanchal daman rang de
Mohay khud sa kar de morey Rungreza
Rungreza Rungreza (x2)

which holds the arms of evenings
Dye the day and dye the evenings
Dye every moment in multiple hues, O dyer!
Just dye me now , dye me
Dye my headscarf and skirt
Mould me like yourself , O my Dyer!
O dyer, O dyer, (x2)

Mohay apnay hi rang main rang ly nijam
Rang ki rangai jo tu maange  (x3)
Mora joban girwi rakh le nijaam (x2)
Tu hai sahib mora, mehboob e Ilahi
Mohay apnay hi rang main rang ly nijam

Dye me in your own hue, O Nijam
The wages for dyeing which you desire  (x3)
Pledge my beauty as a mortgage O Nijaam! (x2)
You are my master, O beloved of God
Dye me in your own hue, O Nijam

Joganiya ka bhais bna ke
Pi ko dhondan jaun gi
Joganiya ka bhais bna ke
Pi ko dhondan jaun gi
Nagri nagri duary duary
Pi ki shabad sunaon gi
Nagri nagri duary duary
Pi ki shabad sunaon gi
Ve dars bithwan jag mein othy
Darshan bichiya paon gi
Ann bann un per waron gi
Sajni joganiya kehlaon gi

In the garb of a Jogan
Will go in search of my beloved.
In the garb of a Jogan
Will go in search of my beloved.
In every nook and corner
I will sing the song of my beloved.
In every nook and corner
I will sing the song of my beloved.
He let the world see him there
I will see him there too!
I will sacrifice my honour and decore
O friend! I will be called as the Jogan

Mohay apnay hi rang main rang ly nijam (x4)

​Dye me in your own hue, O Nijam (x4)
