lalon song #3 (praise be upon him, we say)

by Neel Akash on Saturday, September 10, 2011 at 11:52am ·

He built a house in the air
built it strong and well
praise be upon him, we say ~

sitting on just one pole
hardly any foundation at all
is the house going to fall
when the storm comes our way?
praise be upon him, we say ~

nine quarters at the base
attic above the staircase
there lives a crazy face
sitting alone in oneness
praise be upon him, we say ~

above and below in rows
nine and a half doors
lalon says who is it knows
which door will take us away?
praise be upon him, we say ~


(original bangla by lalon)

bendhechhe amon ghor
shunner upor posta kore
dhonno dhonno boli tare ~

ghorer shobe matro ekti khuti
khutir goray naire mati
kishe ghor robe khati
jhor tufan ele pore
dhonno dhonno boli tare ~

ghorer muladhare kuthori noyta
tar upore chile kotha
shethay ak pagla beta
boishe aka akeshware
dhonno dhonno boli tare ~

ghorer niche upor shari shari
share noy doroja tari
lalon bole jete pari
kon doroja khulle pore
dhonno dhonno boli tare ~
