    (Mehndi hai rachnewaali, haathon mein gehri laali
    Henna paste is going to be applied, it will stain my hands red
    Kahe sakhiyaan, ab kaliyaan
    My friends say, now flower buds
    Haathon mein khilnewaali hain
    Are going to blossom in your hands
    Tere mann ko, jeevan ko
    Your heart, your life
    Nayi khushiyaan milnewaali hai) - 2
    Are going to receive new joys
    O hariyali banno
    Oh fresh bride
    Le jaana tujhko guiyyaan aane waale hai saiyyaan
    To take you away, your lover is going to come
    Thaamenge aake baiyyaan, goonjegi shehnaayi
    He will come and take your arms, the shehnaai (instrument) will sound
    Angnaayi, angnaayi
    In the courtyards
    Mehndi hai rachnewaali, haathon mein gehri laali
    Henna paste is going to be applied, it will stain my hands red
    Kahe sakhiyaan, ab kaliyaan
    My friends say, now flower buds
    Haathon mein khilnewaali hain
    Are going to blossom in your hands
    Tere mann ko, jeevan ko
    Your heart, your life
    Nayi khushiyaan milnewaali hai
    Are going to receive new joys

    Gaaye maiya aur mausi, gaaye behna aur bhabhi
    Your mother and aunt sing, your sister and sister-in-law sing
    Ke mehndi khil jaaye, rang laaye hariyaali banni
    In hope that the henna will bloom and bring color to the fresh bride
    Gaaye phoofi aur chaachi, gaaye naani aur daadi
    Your aunts sing, Your grandmothers sing
    Ke mehndi mann bhaaye, saj jaaye hariyaali banni
    In hope that the henna will please you and decorate the fresh bride
    Mehndi roop sanwaare, o mehndi rang nikhaare, ho
    May the henna bring out our beauty and purify your color, oh
    Hariyaali banni ke aanchal mein utrenge taarein
    Stars shall come down into the fresh bride's scarf
    Mehndi hai rachnewaali, haathon mein gehri laali
    Henna paste is going to be applied, it will stain my hands red
    Kahe sakhiyaan, ab kaliyaan
    My friends say, now flower buds
    Haathon mein khilnewaali hain
    Are going to blossom in your hands
    Tere mann ko, jeevan ko
    Your heart, your life
    Nayi khushiyaan milnewaali hai
    Are going to receive new joys

    Gaaje, baaje, baraati, ghoda, gaadi aur haathi ko
    Instruments, the wedding procession, a horse carriage and an elephant
    Laayenge saajan tere aangan, hariyaali banni
    Your lover will bring them to your frontyard, fresh bride
    Teri mehndi woh dekhenge
    He will see your henna paste
    To apna dil rakhdenge woh
    And he will place his heart
    Pairon mein tere chupke se, hariyaali banni
    At your feet softly, fresh bride
    Mehndi roop sanwaare, o mehndi rang nikhaare, ho
    May the henna bring out our beauty and purify your color, oh
    Hariyaali banni ke aanchal mein utrenge taarein
    Stars shall come down into the fresh bride's scarf
    Mehndi hai rachnewaali, haathon mein gehri laali
    Henna paste is going to be applied, it will stain my hands red
    Kahe sakhiyaan, ab kaliyaan
    My friends say, now flower buds
    Haathon mein khilnewaali hain
    Are going to blossom in your hands
    Tere mann ko, jeevan ko
    Your heart, your life
    Nayi khushiyaan milnewaali hai
    Are going to receive new joys
