You pick the time!

Vee gave me this exquisite video from a regional movie called Operation Diamond Racket. The song is glitzier than a chiffon saree with sparkles on it. The actor is Rajkumar, one of those golden oldie stars of the erstwhile 1940s though 1980s who played hero for close to 40 years. Of course with different heroines! The icing on the cake is the lyrics. Shall we start? Here goes:

Chorus:
If you come today, it’s too early;
If you come tomaarow, it’ too late (2)

You pick the time……
tick tick tick tick tick
a tick tick tick tick tick
a tick tick tick tick tick
Daaaarling!

If you come today, it’s too early;
If you come tomaarow, it’ too late

[Music]

Did you say morning?
No, no, it’s not good.
Did you say evening?
Nono, it’s too bad.
Did you say at noon?
Oh no, it’s not the time.
What did you say?
hey What did you say?
Nothing?
Oh, it’s all right!

You pick the time……
tick tick tick tick tick
a tick tick tick tick tick
a tick tick tick tick tick
Daaaarling!

If you come today, it’s too early;
If you come tomaarow, it’ too late

Million times beating my heart
Million dreams haunt my heart
Million desires stinging my heart
Million memories squeeze my heart (2)

You pick the time…
tick tick tick tick tick
a tick tick tick tick tick
a tick tick tick tick tick
a tick tick tick tick tick

If you come today, it’s too early;
If you come tomaarow, it’ too late

You pick the time…
tick tick tick tick tick
a tick tick tick tick tick
a tick tick tick tick tick
a tick tick tick tick tick
Daaaarling!

Note: Thanks to Vee for finding the lyrics and the video. I have changed it a bit to reflect the true intonation.

Oh! I forgot to mention: This is a Kannada (one of the languages of India) movie but the song is in English.
