LYRICS (English):

One can wait a lifetime waiting for the right time
This here is our sunlight, rise up into blue sky

And let the air fill your lungs
No petrol, gas, no light–no problem
And we can shine another way
Never mind the ones who say, “Batti Goyo”
Batti Ayo! Batti Ayo!

Hey Nepal, my Nepal
Shining on, high above
You’re my sun

Love and luck and Karma, living life in Dharma
This here is our saga: rise like Sagarmatha

And let the air fill your lungs
No petrol, gas, no light–no problem
And we can shine another way
Never mind the ones who say, “Batti Goyo”
Batti Ayo! Batti Ayo!

Hey Nepal, my Nepal
Shining on, high above
You’re my sun

Oh but don’t you mind it when
You’ve got a load to shed
Drop what’s heavy–lighten up your mind

And we can shine another way
Never mind the ones who say, “Batti Goyo”
Batti Ayo! Batti Ayo!

Hey Nepal, my Nepal
Shining on, high above
You’re my sun

LYRICS (Nepali):

Hami ki ta yo jivan kurna sakchau
Sahi samaya ko lagi
Tara yo hamro lagi sunaulo bihani ho
Tyo nilo aasman chuna ko lagi

lamo saash fera ekchoti
petrol chaina, gas chaina chinta chaina
hami arko tarika le chamkana sakchau
“bati gayo” vanneharulai birsana sakchau

batti ayo batti ayo

hey nepal, prem ko dharti
chamkancha, dherai mathi
timi mero prakash

prem ra bhagya ra karma
garnu parcha dharma
yo ho hamro katha
uthau jhai sagarmatha

lamo saash fera ekchoti
petrol chaina, gas chaina chinta chaina
hami arko tarika le chamkana sakchau
“bati gayo” vanneharulai birsana sakchau

batti ayo batti ayo

hey nepal, prem ko dharti
chamkancha, dherai mathi
timi mero prakash

tara chinta naliu dherai
jaba batti jancha feri
tyo bhari lai bisau, man lai halka banau

hami arko tarika le chamkana sakchau
“bati gayo” vanneharulai birsana sakchau

Batti ayo! Batti ayo!

hey nepal, prem ko dharti
chamkancha, dherai mathi
timi mero prakash
