apni dhun mein rehta hun

apni dhun mein rehtaa hun
mein bhi tere jaisaa hun

o pichhli rut ke saathi
ab ke baras main tanhaa hun

teri gali mein saaraa din
dukh ke kankar chunataa hun

mujh se aankh milaaye kaun
main teraa aa_inaa hun

meraa diyaa jalaaye kaun
main teraa Khaali kamraa hun

tu jivan ki bhari gali
main jangal kaa rastaa hun

apni lahar hai apnaa rog
dariyaa hun aur pyaasaa hun

aati rut mujhe royegi
jaati rut kaa jhonkaa hun

wo kaagaz ki kashti, wo baarish kaa paani

ye daulat bhi le lo, ye shoharat bhi le lo
bhale chhin lo mujhase meri javaani

magar mujhako lautaa do bachapan kaa saavan
wo kaagaz ki kashti, wo baarish kaa paani

muhalle ki sabase nishaani puraani
wo budhiyaa jise bachche kahate the naani

wo naani ki baaton mein pariyon kaa deraa
wo chahare ki jhuriryon mein sadiyon kaa pheraa

bhulaae nahin bhuul sakataa hai koi
wo chhoti si raaten wo lambi kahaani

kadi dhuup mein apane ghar se nikalanaa
wo chidiyaa wo bulabul wo titali pakadanaa
