Aao saiyo ral deyo ni vadhaai - Translation of a Bulleh Shah Poem

Aao saiyo ral deyo ni vadhaai
Men var paaya raanjha maahi

Ajj taan roz mubaarak chaddeya
Raanjha saade vedde vaddeya.
Hath khundi, modde kambal dhareya,
Chaakaan vaali shakal banayi.
Aao saiyo ral deyo ni vadhai

Mukat gauwaan de vich rulda
Jangal juuhaan de vich rulda
Hai koi allah de val bhulda,
Asal haqiqat khabar na kai.
Aao saiyo ral deyo ni vadhai

Bulle shah ik sauda keeta
Peeta zehar piyaala peeta,
Na kujh laha tota leeta.
Dard dukhaan di gathari chaahi
Aao saiyo ral deyo ni vadhai


Come friends come 
Congratulate me
I have found my love
Come congratulate me

An auspicious day has dawned
My lover has come to my courtyard
In his hand he has a staff.
A blanket covers his shoulders.
He is so humble, so lowly
Friends, come congratulate me

His crown rolls among the cattle.
In pastures and forests he wanders.
Could anyone tell he's the Lord?
No one can tell who really is he
Friends, come congratulate me

Bulleh Shah struck a deal 
He drank a cup of poison
He didn't care for gain or loss
He picked up a sack of grief
Friends, come congratulate me
