sair kar duniyā ġhāfil zindagānī phir kahāñ

zindagī gar kuchh rahī to ye javānī phir kahāñ

sair kar duniya ki ghafil zindagani phir kahan

zindagi gar kuchh rahi to ye jawani phir kahan

nāla-e-bulbul-e-shaidā to sunā hañs hañs kar

ab jigar thaam ke baiTho mirī baarī aa.ī

nala-e-bulbul-e-shaida to suna hans hans kar

ab jigar tham ke baiTho meri bari aai

mat sahl hameñ jaano phirtā hai falak barsoñ

tab ḳhaak ke parde se insān nikalte haiñ

mat sahl hamein jaano phirta hai falak barson

tab KHak ke parde se insan nikalte hain
