aañkh putlī sab kuchh dekhe dekhe na apnī zaat

ujlā dhāgā mailā hove lageñ jo maile haat

aankh ki putli sab kuchh dekhe dekhe na apni zat

ujla dhaga maila howe lagen jo maile hat

maiñ bahrī thī kaagā bolā sun na sakī sandesh

dil kahtā hai kal ā.eñge piyā badal ke bhes

main bahri thi kaga bola sun na saki sandesh

dil kahta hai kal aaenge piya badal ke bhes

prem kiyā aur saath na chhoTā kaise the vo log

ham ne pyāroñ ab tak dekhā na sanjog

prem kiya aur sath na chhoTa kaise the wo log

hum ne pyaron ka ab tak dekha na sanjog

suut ke kachche dhāge jaise rishte par itrā.ūñ

sājan haath bhī chhū leñ to maiñ phuul gulāb ban jā.ūñ

sut ke kachche dhage jaise rishte par itraun

sajan hath bhi chhu len to main phul gulab ban jaun

takiya bhīgā saañs bhī Duubī murjhā.ī har aas

dil ko raah pe laane har aas banī sanyās

takiya bhiga sans bhi Dubi murjhai har aas

dil ko rah pe lane ki har aas bani sanyas

tapte lamhe dahakte chehre sab kuchh dhyān meñ lā.ūñ

pattī pattī chāhe toḌūñ dil bojh haTā.ūñ

tapte lamhe dahakte chehre sab kuchh dhyan mein laun

patti patti chahe toDun dil ka bojh haTaun

ThanDī raat aur ThanDā bistar sakhī-rī kāñTe aa.e

log kaheñ jo dukh sāñjhe hoñ dil halkā ho jaa.e

ThanDi raat aur ThanDa bistar sakhi-ri kanTe aae

log kahen jo dukh sanjhe hon dil halka ho jae
