Dama Dam Mast Qalandar
Love of a lover

The heartbeat becomes
As a flame-waver
Dama Dam Mast Qalandar
Love of a lover

With the name of Ali
In your glorious Bali
I curiously enter
Dama Dam Mast Qalandar
Love of a lover

Each moment of heart
Sindh's soul-touching part
It is a pearl chart
Like, all the time Blessed-Breezer
That makes crazier
Dama Dam Mast Qalandar
Love of a lover

In every corner, loving sight
In each talking perfume flight
I am right or not right
It is my strength and power
Dama Dam Mast Qalandar
Love of a lover

You are my melody
You are my harmonica
You are becoming,
As heart and mind beater
Dama Dam Mast Qalandar
Love of a lover
