    Alright then:

    MEANING:

    The word Chhammakchhallo (Spelt chammak challo also) is used for a girl who is flashy in appearance. The word can be called part of slang, and can be derogatory as well, though it's not a swear word.

    Exactly, chhammak here refers to the sound of jingling as someone walks, and chhallo was most probably used for chhallas (chhalla = a ring, not necessarily the one worn in a finger) and hence chhammakchhallo was used for someone who used to make a jingling sound with her jewels.

    LYRICS (Just the leaked song of AKON )

    Girl you are my chammak challo.
    Where you go girl, I'm gonna follow.
    What you want girl just let me know.
    You can be my chammak challo.

    Shorty I'm gonna get ya.
    You know I'm gonna get ya.
    You know I will even let you be my chammak challo.

    Kaisa sharmaana aaja nach ke dikha de.
    Aa meri hove aaja parda gira de.
    Aa meri akhiyon se akhiyan mila le.
    Ab tu na nakhre dikha...

    why be shy come show me your dance,
    be mine, come let the curtains fall,
    come meet my eyes (fall in love with me, by a Hindi phrase)
    don't throw tantrum now..

    Wanna be my chammak challo, o-oO-o..
    Wanna be my chammak challo, o-oO-o..
    Wanna be my chammak challo, o-oO-o..
    Wanna be my chammak challo, o-oO-o..

    Tu meri chammak challo.
    Teri picture ka main hero.
    Give it to me girl mujko de do.
    Ho ho hoo.
    You can be my chammak challo.

    You're my chammak chhallo
    I'm the hero of your movie,
    give it to girl give it to me,
    you can be my chammak chhallo

    Shorty I'm gonna get ya.
    You know I'm gonna get ya.
    Maybe I leave n let you be my chammak chammak challo.

    Kaisa sharmaana aaja nach ke dikha do.
    Aa meri hove aaja parda gira de.
    Aa meri akhiyon se akhiyan mila le.
    Ab tu na nakhre dikhaa.

    Btw, the Tamil Part which the girl sings in the new updated version of the song is pretty much the same thing said in Hindi :D

    One more thing to mention - When we wear "Payals or bangles or anything of that sort" - The noise which come out of it is also called - Cham, - so together you say that its making Cham, Cham, Cham noise ! ;) Thought to add it here!

    Yeah, What Anshu said, I think the best song where U can hear the sound is a "Aaja Nachle", it's actually the visual explanation of Chammak challo LOL

    The tamil version somebody on YT had explained, here:

    "When I touch you, will you not crush your heart? If you see a girl like me, won't you be mesmerized?"

    i've always thought chammak challo means smth like... a person who attracts people by the sound of her bangles etc.. one who gets ppl following her (cuz i know challo means "come"). it's kinda the same thing :D

    actually the thing is that in village areas, its used as a slang term..more like a flashy 'nakhre' vaali type of girl.... if that makes sense

    come is 'chalo'

    this is chhallo--actually...there is a difference in the pronuncation so it doesnt mean the same thing :)

    haha...its not 'Shorty' ...that means a short person.

    its 'Shawty' which is american slang for pretty girl, woman or just plain girl, woman etc.

    i read on some sites they just wrote 'Surely im gonna get ya' cos they didnt know what he's saying :lol:
