Maa lidali da ferang khkuli jaazuna
I have seen the airplanes of Firang (British)

Chey Daa laanday thray ghurzand wakhi sinduna
Underneath you see the thunders of the ocean

Maa lidali mahaluna da london
I have seen the palaces of London

Jinakay mastay azaaday gulbadan
Beautiful, free and romantic girls

Maa lidali da Italy khkuli khaaruna
I have seen the beautiful cities of Italy

Sra ye angur, sra ye sharab, aw sra ye guluna
With red grapes, red wines and red flowers

Maa lidali da Paris khaa pairay khkulay
I have seen the beautiful girls of Paris

Pa kirdaar, gufthaar khwagay laka balbalay
With sweet voice and style like butterfly

Maa lidalay Tajmahal ghutay da gulo
I have seen the flowers of Taj Mahal

Da delhi khkuli khaaruna da Mugholo
Beautiful Mughal cities of Delhi

Maa lidali America kay deer khaaruna
I have seen cities in America

Chay waryazo tha ye rasee makaa nuna
The buildings touching the clouds

Kho chay wowinam daa khpal da khato kor
But once I see my own house made of mud

Raana heer shee mahaluna khaistha nor
I forget about all the palaces of the world

Daa naray thangay koosay zamaa da kali
These narrow streets of my village

Wartha sada di da dunya khaaruna khkuli
Are dearer to me than all the beautiful cities of the world

Chay kharh makhay wror Pakhtun sinay la darshi
Once you embrace an uneducated and simple Pakhtoon brother

Darna hair ba tol khaayisth da bahrobar shi
You will forget about all the beauties of the universe

Khudaya shukar chay paida de da de qaaam kram
Thanks Allah that I am born in this nation

Da pakhtun da nar wajud de yaw andaam kram
I am a part of the body of an upright Pakhtoon

Sa ba kram da London loi mahaluna
The big palaces of London are of no use to me

Da Paris jinai khaistha Rome guluna
And the beautiful girls of Paris and flowers of Rome

Pa Wallah chay da Janatha ba sham sthun
I swear I will come out of Paradise

Chay kanzal pakay waw nawram da Patkhun
If I don't listen to the traditional language of Pakhtoon
