Tap Tap Gol Gol/ Tippa Lyrics Translation | Rangoon


Movie: Rangoon
Music: Vishal Bhardwaj
Lyrics: Gulzar
Singers: Sukhwinder Singh, Rekha Bhardwaj, Sunidhi Chauhan, O.S. Arun
Music Label: T-Series

Tippa is a song filled with onomatopoeia, that is words made up of natural sounds. Like Tap-Tap (or Tup-Tup) for the sound of water drops. As for the meaning of the song, it seems quite layered, and I hope many of the things will be clear when it's seen in the movie. For now, the video helps understand the song a little bit. A love-to-hear song anyway.

Tap Tap-Tap hey Tap Tap-Tap
Tap Tap-Tap hey Tap Tap-Tap

Tapki Tapki re hansi Tap Tap-Tap
lapki lapki re hansi Tap Tap-Tap

looks like a smile is about to drop,
it's catching up...

Tapke Tapke re hansi
lapki lapki re hansi

qatra qatra khiski hai
meeThi misri kiski hai

little by little it's crawling,
whose is this sweet sugar?



gaalon mein halka sa
Tippa hai jhalka sa
bharne laga hai jo
Tap Tap Tap

there is a tiny, small
dimple just showing up a little bit.
which is filling drop by drop.

Tap Tap gol gol Tippe mein jo Doobe
far far farmaaishi dekhe hain ajoobe

Those who have lost themselves in this dimple,
I've seen such unique ones when asked for...

Tupur Tupur naach re nupur paayin
googly chhinak chhaayin

O anklet, dance in my feet...

[most of the above phrase is sound effects, mixing onomatopoeia and alliteration.]

Tap Tap gol gol Tippe mein jo Doobe
far far farmaishi dekhe hain ajoobe…

pul se gaaRi guzregi
chhuk chhuk
chhuk chhuk chhuk chhuk

the train will pass over the bridge,
* train-like sounds *

dariya buD buD behta hai
buD buD, buD buD buD buD

the river flows with the sounds of water bubbling.
* bubble sounds *

haan pul se gaadi guzregi
dariya buD buD behta hai

saaye pakRe hain paani mein
ramuaa maajhi kehta hai

shadows have been caught in the water,
Ramuaa the boatman says...

O maajhi re, nauka bahaye diyo re
O maajhi re, nauka bahaye diyo re

O boatman, make the boat flow...

baadal mein Tippa hai
Tippe mein paani hai
barasne laga hai jo Tap Tap Tap
Tap Tap Tap Tap Tap Tap…

in the clouds, there is a dimple,
in the dimple, there is water,
which is raining, drop drop drop...

Tap Tap gol gol Tippe mein jo Doobe
far far farmaishi dekhe hain ajoobe

aaja uchhalenge pakRenge paani ki boondein
aa bhi ja
geeli ghaTaayein agar paani maange to
kyun dein, kyun bhala

come we'll throw the water drops up and catch them.
come now.
if clouds filled with water ask for water,
why should we give them? Why?

Tupur Tupur naache nukur paayin
Tupur Tupur naache nukur paayin
googli chhinak chhaayin.

ae Tap Tap gol gol Tippe mein jo Doobe
far far farmaishi dekhe hain ajoobe
