    kahīñ dirham kahīñ dollar kahīñ dīnār jhagḌā

    kahīñ lahñgā kahīñ cholī kahīñ shalvār jhagḌā

    vatan meñ aaj kal is zaat se us zaat ko shikva

    lagā hone kahīñ is paar se us paar jhagḌā

    vo masjid ho ki mandir ho adab ho siyāsat ho

    vahī hai jañg kursī vahī dastār jhagḌā

    zamāne ravish se kar liyā hai sab ne samjhautā

    koī ma.anī nahīñ rakhtā yahāñ kirdār jhagḌā

    kisī Taañg TuuTe kisī ahmaq sar phūTe

    agar hone lage hoshyār se hoshyār jhagḌā

    yahī insāñ khilaunoñ ke liye bachpan meñ laḌtā hai

    baḌe hone pe kartā hai dar-o-dīvār jhagḌā

    ye duniyā-e-mohabbat bhī anokhī chiiz hai sāhab

    kabhī inkār par nālish kabhī iqrār jhagḌā

    chhiḌā jab un ke ghar jhagḌā to un aql chakrā.ī

    jo suljhāte rahe the umr-bhar bāzār jhagḌā

    amīroñ laḌā.ī meñ koī lazzat nahīñ hotī

    maza aatā hai jab ho muflis-o-nādār jhagḌā

    agar jāhil bane aalim to kar tā.īd us

    'zafar' achchhā nahīñ hotā hai ye bekār jhagḌā

    kahin dirham kahin dollar kahin dinar ka jhagDa

    kahin lahnga kahin choli kahin shalwar ka jhagDa

    watan mein aaj kal is zat se us zat ko shikwa

    laga hone kahin is par se us par ka jhagDa

    wo masjid ho ki mandir ho adab ho ya siyasat ho

    wahi hai jang kursi ki wahi dastar ka jhagDa

    zamane ki rawish se kar liya hai sab ne samjhauta

    koi mani nahin rakhta yahan kirdar ka jhagDa

    kisi ki Tang TuTe ya kisi ahmaq ka sar phuTe

    agar hone lage hoshyar se hoshyar ka jhagDa

    yahi insan khilaunon ke liye bachpan mein laDta hai

    baDe hone pe karta hai dar-o-diwar ka jhagDa

    ye duniya-e-mohabbat bhi anokhi chiz hai sahab

    kabhi inkar par nalish kabhi iqrar ka jhagDa

    chhiDa jab un ke ghar jhagDa to un ki aql chakrai

    jo suljhate rahe the umr-bhar bazar ka jhagDa

    amiron ki laDai mein koi lazzat nahin hoti

    maza aata hai jab ho muflis-o-nadar ka jhagDa

    agar jahil bane aalim to kar taid tu us ki

    'zafar' achchha nahin hota hai ye bekar ka jhagDa
