Dam mast Qalandar mast mast

The drunk Qalandar*, in his drunken state**

Iko vird hai dam dam Ali Ali

(Has) Only one chant – Ali, in every breath

Sakhi Lal Qalandar mast mast

The generous red-robed Qalandar, in his drunken state (a reference to the 12thcentury sufi saint Lal Shahbaz Qalandar)

Jhoole Lal Qalandar mast mast

(Another reference to Lal Shahbaz Qalandar)

Akhi ja malanga tu Ali Ali Ali akhi ja malanga

Oh my brother, keep saying Ali, Ali, Ali; keep on saying

Akhi ja malanga sach ape mun len ge

Oh my brother, Go on saying, they will (themselves) accept the truth

Aj ne te kal saray Ali Ali can ge

If not today then tomorrow everyone will repeat Ali, Ali

Rab ne kinne shaan banaye

God has blessed countless (people)

Be karma Te karm kamaye

He has even blessed the wretched

Jeda vi Tere dar Te Aaye

Whoever comes to your doorstep

O na kaddivi khaali jaye

Never returns empty-handed

Shana uchiyaan teria Peera

Oh teacher (referring to Ali) with lofty grace

Hovan door haneriyaan Peera

May the darkness (within me) be purged, Oh teacher

Aasan he ba teriya Peera

I have pinned my (very many) hopes in you, Oh teacher

Soon arzaa aj meeriya Peera

Grant my requests today, Oh teacher
