Gori teri aankhen kahe, raat bhar soyi nahin

This song by Lucky Ali and Kavita Krishnamurthy is one of my favourite and it suddenly seemed to acquire a new meaning yesterday when our whole section (along with two other sections)had mass night out to meet the submission deadline of Management Accounting(ManAc) assignment.

Those whose favourite pastime is to look for political incorrectness in other's writings may categorize this as a sexist joke (If you tell a girl studying in IIM,"Gori teri aankhen kahe, raat bhar soyi nahin",instead of the interesting answers you are expecting, you may get an answer like, "Haan yaar, ManAc ka assignement jo karna tha"), but the choice of words is more a matter of convenience than stereotyping women. To see what happens to the joke, just replace these three words with their masculine counterparts, (If you tell a boy studying in IIM,"Gora teri aankhen kahe, raat bhar soya nahin", you may get answer, "Haan yaar, ManAc ka assignement jo karna tha") :-) doesn't sound good na?
(BTW, Is there some gender neutral term which is equivalent to gori and can cover for both sexes like chairperson, or using "one" instead of "his/her" when talking about a generic person.)

You can listen/download this song from 4shared.com




Lyrics of song

Male:
Gori teri aankhen kahe
raat bhar sooyi nahi
chanda dekhe chupke kahi
aur taare jaante hain sabhi
ke kisne dil le liya
kisko dil de diya

yeh dil ka lagana koi jaanta nahi
Gori teri aankhen kahe
raat bhar sooyi nahi

Female
Dil mein teri yaad basi
tu samjhe ga nahi
jo hain mere paas hai tera
mera kuch nahi
kyun akhiya chupao
kyun tujhko satao
dil tod ke tera
mein kya pao
bol piya bol piya bol
piya bol piya bol piyaaa bol


saajan teri baatein badi
ke mein raat bhar sooyi nahi
chanda ne bhi dekha nahi
aur taaro ko yeh maloom nahi
ke meine tujhe dil diya
tera dil le liya
mera tu hi hain bahana
kyun manta nahi
saajan teri baatein badi
ke mein raat bhar sooyi nahi

Male
Aate jaate mausam jaise
lagte the sabhi
humne bhi to manga rab se
apna bhi koi
Duniya se bachao
palko mein chupao
dil jeet ke tera
sab ko batao
sun gori sun gori sun gori sunnn
sun gori sun gori sunnnnn

Gori teri aankhen kahe
jaane anjaane mein kahi
chanda ne bhi dekha nahi
aur taaro ne bhi jaana nahi
ke tune mujhe dil diya
mera dil de diya
mera jeene ka bahana
koi aur nahi


gori teri aanken
