Magic In Tunes: 09/14/2015 - Honey I'm Good

This is the second single by American singer-writer Andy Grammar from his 2014 album Magazines or Novels. It was written by Andy himself along with Nolan Sipe. First time I heard this song was on Dancing With The Stars (DWTS) Season 20 earlier this year, where he performed it live for the celebrity participant Nastia Liukin and her partner Derek Hough. He is now a celebrity participant for DWTS Season 21.

This song immediately charmed me with its country music and tap dance tune. Loved it, loved it, loved it.



Lyrics in English:

Nah Nah, Honey I'm Good
I Could Have Another But I Probably Should-Not!
I've Got Somebody At Home

It's Been A Long Night Here, And A Long Night There
And These Long, Long Legs Are Damn Near Everywhere
Hold Up Now, You Look Good, I Will Not Lie
But If You Ask Where I'm Staying Tonight I Gotta Be Like

Oh Baby, No Baby, You Got Me All Wrong Baby
My Baby's Already Got All My Love

Nah Nah, Honey I'm Good
I Could Have Another But I Probably Should-Not!
I've Got Somebody At Home, And If I Stay I Might Not Leave Alone
No, Honey I'm Good, I Could Have Another But I Probably Shouldn't
I've Gotta Bid You Adieu And To Another I Will Stay True

Now Better Men Than Me Have Failed
Drinking From That Unholy Grail
Now Check It Out, I've Got Her And She Got Me
And You've Got That Ass, But I Kindly Gotta Be Like

Oh Baby, No Baby, You Got Me All Wrong Baby
My Baby's Already Got All My Love

Nah Nah, Honey I'm Good
I Could Have Another But I Probably Shouldn't
I've Got Somebody At Home, And If I Stay I Might Not Leave Alone
No, Honey I'm Good, I Could Have Another But I Probably Shouldn't
I've Gotta Bid You Adieu And To Another I Will Stay True

Oh, I'm Sure You, Sure You Will Make Somebody's Night
Oh, I'll Show You, Show You It Sure As Hell's Not Mine

Oh No, Honey I'm Good
I Could Have Another But I Probably Shouldn't
I've Got Somebody At Home, And If I Stay I Might Not Leave Alone
No, Honey I'm Good, I Could Have Another But I Probably Shouldn't
I've Gotta Bid You Adieu And To Another I Will Stay True

Magic In Tunes: 09/15/2015 - Nain Tumhare Mazedaar

Junglee ( = Wild as in Human nature) is another hit Hindi classic film released in 1961 and directed by Subodh Mukherjee. The plot revolves around family values, honor, differences between opinions, defying of rules (sometimes unwanted rules), learning / facing consequences as life goes on and in the end showing that nothing is more than being a family together for all the right reasons. The story by in itself was a block buster. Not to mention the super hit dialogues and the awesome songs. Excellent compositions by the duo Shankar - Jaikishan to the equally catchy Lyrics penned by Hasrat Jaipuri. More about the movie in another post, but there is one song in the movie that I want to talk about here.

"Nain Tumhare Mazedaar" was Sung by Mukesh and Asha Bhosle. This was pictured not on the lead actors nor comedians but the second-lead actors Anoop Kumar and Shashikala. I don’t remember that many songs on second-lead actors for themselves, normally they are part of a song. Although less remembered, it left a mark on my mind because of that one fact plus the charming chemistry between the actors. It is even the first song in the movie, which is also unsual.



In the movie as well as this video clip of the song, it is only of two verses. Yes, I watched the movie to check that fact. :) But the audio version has three verses. Perhaps the song was edited after the songs were already released in audio version. Here's the audio version with three verses.



Lyrics in Romanized Hindi:

Nain Tumhare Mazedaar O Janab-E-Aali, Nain Tumhare Mazedaar O Janab-E-Aali
Humko Tumse Hai Pyaar O Janaab-E-Aali, Humko Tumse Hai Pyaar O Janaab-E-Aali
Nain Tumhare Mazedaar O Janab-E-Aali

Pyar Kiya Tumse Kya Humne Gunah Kiya? Pyar Kiya Tumse Kya Humne Gunah Kiya?
Aap Ke Isharo Pe Khud Ko Tabah Kiya
Bante Hai Humhi Gunehgaar O Janab-E-Aali, Nain Tumhare Mazedaar O Janab-E-Aali
Humko Tumse Hai Pyaar O Janaab-E-Aali

Aap Chahe Kuchh Ho Nigaho Pe Chha Gaye, Aap Chahe Kuchh Ho Nigaho Pe Chha Gaye
Meri Zindagi Mein Bahaar Banke Aa Gaye
Hum Hai Tumhare Talabgaar O Janab-E-Aali, Humko Tumse Hai Pyaar O Janaab-E-Aali
Nain Tumhare Mazedaar O Janab-E-Aali

Raah Mein Pade Hai Huzoor Ke Gulaam Hai, Raah Mein Pade Hai Huzoor Ke Gulaam Hai
Geet Mere Sun Lo Vafa Ke Payaam Hai
Hum Hai Tumhare Taabedar O Janab-E-Aali, Nain Tumhare Mazedaar O Janab-E-Aali
Humko Tumse Hai Pyaar O Janaab-E-Aali
