Translation in English

Jai Ho, Jai Ho, Jai Ho, Jai Ho
Victory to thee, Victory to thee, Victory to thee, Victory to thee

Aaja Aaja Jind Shamiyane Ke Tale
Come come below the decorated tent of life

Aaja Jariwale Nile Aasman Ke Tale
Come below blue sky decorated with ‘jari' threads

Jai Ho, Jai Ho, Jai Ho, Jai Ho
Victory to thee, Victory to thee, Victory to thee, Victory to thee

Jai Ho.., Jai Ho.., Jai Ho.., Jai Ho..
Victory to thee.., Victory to thee.., Victory to thee.., Victory to thee..

Ratti Ratti Sachi Maine Jaan Gavayi Hai
Slowly Slowly Really I lost my life

Nach Nach Koylo Pe Raat Bitayi Hai
Spent my nights dancing on coal

Akhiyon Ki Neend Maine Phoonko Se Uda Di
I blew the sleep in my eyes with air from my mouth

Neele Tare Se Maine Ungli Jalayi Hai
I burned my finger with blue star

Aaja Aaja Jind Shamiyane Ke Tale
Come come below the decorated tent of life

Aaja Jariwale Nile Aasman Ke Tale
Come below blue sky decorated with ‘jari' threads

Jai Ho, Jai Ho, Jai Ho, Jai Ho
Victory to thee, Victory to thee, Victory to thee, Victory to thee

Jai Ho.., Jai Ho.., Jai Ho.., Jai Ho..
Victory to thee.., Victory to thee.., Victory to thee.., Victory to thee..

Chakh Le, Ha Chakh Le, Ye Raat Shahad Hai.. Chakh Le
Taste it, yes taste it, this night is honey, taste it

Rakh Le, Ha Dil Hai, Dil Aakhri Had Hai.. Rakh Le
Keep it, yes this is heart, heart is last limit.. Keep it

Kala Kala Kajal Tera Koi Kala Jadoo Hai Na
(your) Black Black eyeliner - is it your black magic?

Kala Kala Kajal Tera Koi Kala Jadoo Hai Na
(your) Black Black eyeliner - is it your black magic?

Aaja Aaja Jind Shamiyane Ke Tale
Come come below the decorated tent of life

Aaja Jariwale Nile Aasman Ke Tale, Jai Ho, Jai Ho
Come below blue sky decorated with ‘jari' threads

Jai Ho.., Jai Ho.., Jai Ho.., Jai Ho..
Victory to thee.., Victory to thee.., Victory to thee.., Victory to thee..

Kab Se, Ha Kab Se Tu Lab Pe Ruki Hai.. Kab De
Since when, yes since when, you have stopped at my lips.. since when

Kab De, Ha Kab De Ab Aankh Jhuki Hai.. Kab De
Since when, yes since when, (your) eyes are closed.. since when

Aisi Aisi Roshan Aankhe Roshan Dono Bhi Hai Hai Kya
Like this, Like this, lightening eyes, making both lightened, yes, yes, what?

Aaja Aaja Jind Shamiyane Ke Tale
Come come below the decorated tent of life

Aaja Jariwale Nile Aasman Ke Tale, Jai Ho, Jai Ho
Come below blue sky decorated with ‘jari' threads

Jai Ho, Jai Ho, Jai Ho, Jai Ho
Victory to thee, Victory to thee, Victory to thee, Victory to thee

Jai Ho, Jai Ho, Jai Ho, Jai Ho
Victory to thee, Victory to thee, Victory to thee, Victory to thee

Pussycat Dolls' version, translation is inacurate and style is way to commercial. And what in the hell is up with that "jay ho" (almost pronounced jey)? ... i wanna tell them: leave this to the people it belongs to, you jail ho's...)
