Charkha mera rangla
Vich charkhe de mekhan
Ve main tainu yaar karaan
Jad charkhe val vekhaan   
Charkhey de sheeshiyaan which  
Disey tera MUKH vey

             (Charkha is decorated with small mirrors in which i can see you face)

Vekh vekh mitdi na  akhiyaan di bhukh vey
              (But the eyes dont get enough of you looking at it)

Seene which ne Radakdiyaan eh charkhe diyaan mekhaan
              (My heard hurts with the nails )

Ve main tainu yaar karaan
Jad charkhe val vekhaan
              (I remember you , each time is see the charkha)

Din raat teriyan raahaan val ..maraan chaakhi vey
              (I look upon the way you gonna come day and night)

Teray bin asaan ki Manauni vaisakhi ve
               (Cant celebrate Vaishakhi without you) 

Sau sau peer Manavaan
Naaley thaan thaan mathey tekaan
                (I go to hundreds of God’s men, and put my head for the blessings)

Ve main tainu yaar karaan
Jad charkhe val vekhaan

Ajaa mahin Aaja Tun Vi Kar kay Khaitan
                (Come back oh beloved after you have done your earning)

Jattian ne Sootan nu lavaan layiaan phatiyaan
                 (girls have put on lovely suits nicely decorated)

Kyun sooli te tangiya mainu meryaan lekhaan
                 (Why am i hanging by the noose, by my luck)

Ve main tainu yaar karaan
Jad charkhe val vekhaan
