jhuki jhuki see nazar bekaraar hain ke naheen
dabaa dabaa saa sahee dil mein pyaar hain ke naheen

too apane dil kee jawaan dhadakanon ko gin ke bataa
meree tarah teraa dil bekaraar hain naheen

wo pal ke jis mein mohabbat jawaan hotee hain
us ek pal kaa tujhe intazaar hain ke naheen

teree ummeed pe thhukaraa rahaa hoo duniyaan ko
tujhe bhee apane pe ye ayetabaar hain ke naheen
