Rang Barse Lyrics:

Rang barse bhige chunar wali rang barse
Are kaine mari pichkari tori bhigee angiya
O rangrasia rangrasia ho
Rang barse bhige chunar wali rang barse

Sone kee thali mai jona parosa
Are sone kee thali mai jona parosa
Han sone kee thali mai jona parosa
Are khaye gauri kaa yar balam tarse rang barse, holi hai
O rang barse bhige chunar wali rang barse

Launga ilaichi ka, are launga ilaichi kaa
Launga ilaichi ka han
Are launga ilaichi kaa bida lagaya
Ha launga ilaichi kaa bida lagaya
Chabe gauri kaa yar, balam tarse, holi hai
O rang barse bhige chunar wali rang barse …

Arey bela chameli kaa sej bhichhaya
Bela chameli kaa, sej bhichhaya
Arey bela chameli kaa sej bhichhaya
Han bela chameli kaa sej bhichhaya
Soye gauri kaa yar balam tarse, holi hai
O rang barse bhige chunar wali rang barse
