If you were head over heels in love with the title track ‘Chaddi pehen ke phool khila hai’ for the latest Hollywood film The Jungle Book, here’s more reason for you to go, “Awwwwww!”
Now, a bunch of kids have taken the composition by Vishal Bhardwaj and Gulzar, and have literally translated the Hindi words into English — with adorable results.
Titled ‘Jungle Jungle — Summer Fun Mix‘, the YouTube video features little singers Arika, Prisha, Gati, Aarsha and Arohi as they prance about gardens and recording studios, happily singing the literal translation to the song.
While the Hindi lyrics go something like:
“Jungle Jungle baat chali hai pata chala hai…
Arre chaddi pehen ke phool khila hai phool khila hai, phool kila hai…”
These ‘summer kids’ have literally translated them into English like so:
“Jungle jungle word is spreading here and there…
A flower has bloomed wearing underwear…”
