English Translation of 'Chanda Hai Tu Mera Suraj Hai Tu'

An emotional song where a mother sings to her son.

Song: Chanda Hai Tu
Movie: Aradhana
Singer: Lata Mangeshkar
Actor: Sharmila Tagore

Chanda hai tu, mera suraj hai tu
O meri aankhon ka taara hain tu
Jeeti hoon main bas tujhe dekh ke
Is toote dil ka sahaara hai tu
You are my moon, you are my sun
Oh, you are the twinkle of my eyes
I live just to see you
You are the companion for this broken heart

Tu khele khel kaii, mera khilona hai tu
Jisse bandhi har aasha meri mera woh sapna salona hai tu
Nanha sa hai kitna sundar hai tu
Chhota sa hai kitna pyaara hai tu
Chanda hai tu mera suraj hai tu...
You play games and you are my toy
You are my beautiful dream, to whom all of my hopes are bound
You are so tiny, and so beautiful.
You are so little, so precious!
You are my moon and my sun...

Puravaai van mein ude panchi chaman mein ude
Ram kare kabhi hoke bada tu banke badal gagan mein ude
Jo bhi tujhe dekhe woh ye kahe
Kis maa ka aisa dulaara hai tu
Chanda hai tu mera suraj hai tu
O meri aankhon ka taara hai tu
The wind blows through the forest and birds fly through the garden
God willing, someday you too will fly in the sky like a cloud
Whoever sees you then will say,
"What mother's darling are you?"
You are my moon and you are my sun.
Oh, you are the sparkle in my eye.
