From the movie: Bunty Aur Babli. Kajra Re–Lyrics: Gulzar.

Aisi Nazar Se Dekha Us Zalim Ne Chowk Par, I saw cruelty in the gaze of those who gathered at the city gates. Humne Kaleja Rakh Diya Chaku Ki Nok Par. And I kept this heart of mine sharp like a knife. Mera Chain Vain Sab Ujda, Zaalim Nazar Hata Le. Having lost all my happiness, take away your cruel gaze.Barbaad Ho Rahe Hai Ji. Listen, you all are destroying,There Apne Sheher Wale, Your own people of this city. Meri Angdai Na Toote Thu Aaja.  Come my love to take me away from these people.  I am waiting for you with eagerness.  Kajra Re. Those with kohl lined eyes are the ones with hope. Look out for them. Kajra Re, Kajra Re, There Kare Kare Naina. Ho Mere Naina, Mere Naina, Mere Naina Judhwa Naina. O my eyes rest on the hope of the kohl lined ones. My eyes, My both eyes. Surmayee Se Likhe Tere Wade, Aankhon Ki Zabani Aathe Hain. Only such eyes can cleanse and provide relief.  I know them very well now. Haay… Mere Rumalo Pe Lab There, Bandh Ke Nishani Jaathe Hain. The stain of lips that you left on my handkerchief have tied my fate to yours. Ho Theri Baathon Main Kimam Ki Khusbu Hain, Ho Thera Aana Bhi Garmiyon Ki Lu Hain. And your intoxicating words speak of hot and severe storms. Aaja Tute Na, Tute Na Aangdai. Come to deliver me from evil ones. I have been waiting anxiously. Ho… Meri Angdai Na Tute Thu Aaja. So that their spell of misery is unbroken , come quickly now. Meri Angdai Na Tute Thu Aaja. Come, my saviors to rescue me. I have been waiting anxiously. Kajra Re. Kohl-lined. Kajra Re, Kajra Re, Tere Kare Kare Naina. Your kohl-lined black eyes. Ho Kajra, Re Kajra Re, There Kare Kare Naina. Your kohl-lined black eyes. Ho Mere Naina, Mere Naina, Mere Naina Judhwa Naina,  My eyes, My twin eyes.  Kajra Re, Kajra Re, There Kare Kare Naina. Your kohl-lined black eyes.  Aankhein Bhi Kamal Karthi Hain, Personal Se Sawal Karti Hain. These eyes speak of wonders whose details are personal. Ho Mera Gham Tho Kisise Bhi Chuptha Nahi, Dard Hotha Hain Dard Jab Chubhtha Nahi. I pray that my sadness does not sting and this heart be not wounded. Aaja Tute Na, Tute Na Aangdai. Come quickly to remove my anxious burden. Ho… Meri Angdai Na Tute Thu Aaja My anxiousness is not ending, come now. Ho Thujhse Milna Purani Dilli Main, Chod Aaye Nishani Dilli Main. We met during old times and left their imprint. Pal Nimani Dari Bethalab, Teri Meri Kahani Dilli Main.The moments are mixed with emotions, our love story remains as the ages. Kali Kamali Wale Ko Yaad Karthe. They will remember criminals. There Kale Kale Naino Ki Kasam Khathe Hain. I have sworn on these kohl-lined eyes. There Kale Kale Naino Ke Balaye Lelu. And as your eyes are bearers of promise, I will suffer all consequences. There Kale Kale Naino Ko Dhuaaye Dhedhu I pay homage to your darkened vision. Meri Jaan Udaas Hain, Hothon Pe Pyaas Hain, Aaja Re, Aaja Re, Aaja Re. My miserable life is thirsty for your vision. Look upon me with sympathy. Ho Theri Baathon Main Kimam Ki Khusbu Hain, Ho Thera Aana Bhi Garmiyon Ki Lu Hain. In your words there is healing. Come as quickly as the winds. Ho Meri Angdai Na Tute Thu Aaja. My anxiousness is not ending, come now. Ho Kajra, Re Kajra Re, Tere Kare Kare Naina. Your kohl-lined  eyes.
