tum bhuul kar bhī yaad nahīñ karte ho kabhī

ham to tumhārī yaad meñ sab kuchh bhulā chuke

tum bhul kar bhi yaad nahin karte ho kabhi

hum to tumhaari yaad mein sab kuchh bhula chuke

zāhid sharāb piine se kāfir huā maiñ kyuuñ

kyā DeḌh chullū paanī meñ īmān bah gayā

zahid sharab pine se kafir hua main kyun

kya DeDh chullu pani mein iman bah gaya

ek aañsū ne Duboyā mujh ko un bazm meñ

buuñd bhar paanī se saarī aabrū paanī huī

a single tear caused my fall in her company

just a drop of water drowned my dignity

ek aansu ne Duboya mujh ko un ki bazm mein

bund bhar pani se sari aabru pani hui

a single tear caused my fall in her company

just a drop of water drowned my dignity

ab to ghabrā ke ye kahte haiñ ki mar jā.eñge

mar ke bhī chain na paayā to kidhar jā.eñge

being agitated I express the hope to die, although

in death, if solace is not found, then where shall I go?

ab to ghabra ke ye kahte hain ki mar jaenge

mar ke bhi chain na paya to kidhar jaenge

being agitated I express the hope to die, although

in death, if solace is not found, then where shall I go?

ai 'zauq' takalluf meñ hai taklīf sarāsar

ārām meñ hai vo jo takalluf nahīñ kartā

save trouble, in formality, zauq nothing else can be

at ease he then remains he who, eschews formality

ai 'zauq' takalluf mein hai taklif sarasar

aaram mein hai wo jo takalluf nahin karta

save trouble, in formality, zauq nothing else can be

at ease he then remains he who, eschews formality
