Great One
00 :33
कैसी तेरी ख़ुदग़र्ज़ी
 धूप चुने  छाँव
कैसी तेरी ख़ुदग़र्ज़ी
किसी ठोर टिके  पाऊँ
[the previous 4 lines x2]
बन लिया अपना पैग़म्बर
तार लिया तू सात समंदर
फिर भी सूखा मन के अंदर
क्यूँ रह गया
What kind of selfishness of yours is this
you choose neither sunlight nor shade
What kind of selfishness of yours is this
whose feet don't stay in a fixed place
[the previous 4 lines x2]
You became your own prophet
crossed the seven seas
nevertheless, your heart dried up inside
Why did that keep happening?
01 :06
रे कबीरा मान जा
रे फ़क़ीरा मान जा
 जा तुझको पुकारे तेरी परछाइयाँ
रे कबीरा मान जा
रे फ़क़ीरा मान जा
कैसा तू है निर्मोही कैसा हरजाइया
Oh, great one, say yes!
Oh saintly one, say yes!
Come, your shadows are calling you back
Oh, great one, say yes!
Oh saintly one, say yes!
You are so detached and inconstant!
01 :59
टूटी चारपाई वही
ठंडी पुरवाई रास्ता देखे
दूधों की मलाई वही
मिट्टी की सुराही रास्ता देखे
[all stanza x2]
That very same broken cot
The cool easterly wind waits for you
That very same milk cream
The earthen water jug waits for you
[all stanza x2]
02 :42
कैसी तेरी ख़ुदग़र्ज़ी
लब नमक रमे  मिसरी
कैसी तेरी ख़ुदग़र्ज़ी
तुझे प्रीत पुरानी बिसरी
मस्त मौला, मस्त क़लंदर
तू हवा का एक बवंडर
बुझ के यूँ अंदर ही अंदर
क्यूँ रह गया 
What kind of selfishness of yours is this
(your) lips enjoy neither salt nor candy
What kind of selfishness of yours is this
you forgot old love
Oh, oblivious, carefree Lord
you are a whirlwind
(but) extinguished in such a way deep inside
Why did that keep happening?
03 :04
रे कबीरा मान जा
रे फ़क़ीरा मान जा
 जा तुझको पुकारे तेरी परछाइयाँ
रे कबीरा मान जा
रे फ़क़ीरा मान जा
कैसा तू है निर्मोही कैसा हरजाइया
Oh, great one, say yes!
Oh saintly one, say yes!
Come, your shadows are calling you back
Oh, great one, say yes!
Oh saintly one, say yes!
You are so detached and inconstant!
