Balle Balle (Hindi: बल्ले बल्ले, Gurmukhi: ਬੱਲੇ ਬੱਲੇ, Shahmukhi: بلّے بلّے) is a phrase used in many Panjabi songs to depict a feeling of happiness. It is used in the same way as the English expressions, "Hooray!" or "Hurrah!" It comes from the Farsi word بله (bale), which means "yes".

It is used in Bhangra songs and dances generally set in the Punjab.
