vo baat saare fasāne meñ jis zikr na thā

vo baat un ko bahut nā-gavār guzrī hai

wo baat un ko bahut na-gawar guzri hai

qadam mai-ḳhāna meñ rakhnā bhī kār-e-puḳhta-kārāñ hai

jo paimāna uThāte haiñ vo tharrāyā nahīñ karte

jo paimana uThate hain wo tharraya nahin karte

kashtī-e-mai ko hukm-e-ravānī bhī bhej do

jab aag bhej hai to paanī bhī bhej do

kashti-e-mai ko hukm-e-rawani bhi bhej do

jab aag bhej di hai to pani bhi bhej do
