(Bal-e-Jibril-090) Koi Dekhe To Meri Ne Nawazi

Koi Dekhe Tau Meri Ne Nawazi
Nafs Hindi, Maqam-e-Naghma Tazi

I wish someone saw how I play the flute—
The breath is Indian, the tune Arabian!

Nigah Aaloodah Andaz-e-Afrang
Tabiyat Ghaznavi, Qismat Ayyazi!

My vision has a taint of the Western style;
I am a Ghaznavi by temper, but my fate is that of an Ayaz!
