I was asked by my Non punjabi friends about meaning of Katya karoon , the famous song from Rockstar . Thought to translate full.
Kateya Karoon is an old punjabi folk song- The women in old days used to make cotton on the spinning feel . Still this is common time pass in villages but not in cities. Group of ladies join and sing , talk things of here and there.
Often they sing for for their husbands or lovers..
Following is the detailed analysis
Ting ling ling ling ting ling ling ling >>>> Punjabi rhyme sort of kids do this often
Ting ling ling ling ting ling ling
Kateya karoon kateya karoon >>>> I will spin the cotton wheel ,
Tera roon kateya karoon >>>> Girl is saying to his beloved i will spin your cotton >>> roon means cotton
Tera roon tera roon tera roon roon roon roon roooon >>>> tera means yours
Saari raati kateya karun >>> I spin your cotton all night >>>> literal means in your thoughts all night
Kateya karoon kateya karoon
Sari raati kateya karoon
Saara din sochhan vich langhda >>>>> The entire day is spent in this thought
Tere lai hun jiyun te marun >>>>> I shall live and die for you
Eh tan mera charkha hove >>>>> My body will be the spinning wheel
Hove ulfat yaar di chittaa roon >>>>>> And let the love of my beloved be pure cotton
Nachdi phiroon tapdi phiroon >>>>> Let me dance let me fly jumping all around
Keeli mai napdi phiroon >>> Let me be in ecstasy , full speed no stop :P >>>>> keeli napdi phiroon is often used in punjabi to do things fast
Hadh karoon, hadh karoon >>>> Crossing all boundaries all barriers
