    kyuuñ maiñ ghāTe meñ rahūñ sūd-farāmosh rahūñ

    mauqa.a mil jaa.e to daftar meñ mad.hosh rahūñ

    DaañT afsar sunūñ aur hama-tan-gosh rahūñ

    ''ham-navā'' maiñ bhī koī gul huuñ ki ḳhāmosh rahūñ

    ''maska-bāzī'' ke sabab tāb-e-suḳhan hai mujh ko

    dar-haqīqat bahut arsa se ghuTan hai mujh ko

    hai bajā kaam chorī meñ to mash.hūr haiñ ham

    peT rishvat se jo bharte haiñ to majbūr haiñ ham

    aañkh ke andhe haiñ kānoñ se bhī ma.azūr haiñ ham

    ''boss'' nit-na.ī dhamkī se bhī ranjūr haiñ ham

    mire afsar mire aaqā ye da.avā sun le

    apnī aadat ko na chhoḌeñge itnā sun le

    thī to maujūd azal se ye rishvat phaban

    ye buzurgoñ rivāyat ye buzurgoñ chalan

    kaise kah duuñ ki mujhe hotī hai is se uljhan

    ye maza vo hai ki aadī haiñ mire kām-o-dahan

    ham pe ġhaflat huī taarī to ''corruption'' bhī savār

    laakh rotī rahī public na sunī us ''pukār''

    khāyā ohde badaulat jo hazāroñ udhār

    ek kes meñ karne lage ham beḌā paar

    haa.e afsos vahī ''lens'' ne ham ko pakḌā

    zindagī bhar ke liye ho gayā qaa.em jhagḌā

    ham to ullū haiñ tirī dhoñs meñ rahte rahe

    jis taraf ne kahā josh meñ bahte rahe

    phir bhī kyuuñ aañkh dikhātā hai DañDā le kar

    kyā nahīñ ḳhush tirā rūpiyoñ baTvā le kar

    apnī ''taḌ'' apnī anā ko bhī miTāyā ham ne

    ḳhol chehre pe ġhulāmī chaḌhāyā ham ne

    hukm afsar bahar-hāl bajāyā ham ne

    us ke chamchoñ ko bahut maal chaTāyā ham ne

    phir bhī afsar ko gila hai ki vafādār nahīñ

    ham vafādār nahīñ vo bhī to dil-dār nahīñ

    kyun main ghaTe mein rahun sud-faramosh rahun

    mauqa mil jae to daftar mein hi madhosh rahun

    DanT afsar ki sunun aur hama-tan-gosh rahun

    ham-nawa main bhi koi gul hun ki KHamosh rahun

    maska-bazi ke sabab tab-e-suKHan hai mujh ko

    dar-haqiqat bahut arsa se ghuTan hai mujh ko

    hai baja kaam ki chori mein to mashhur hain hum

    peT rishwat se jo bharte hain to majbur hain hum

    aankh ke andhe hain kanon se bhi mazur hain hum

    boss ki nit-nai dhamki se bhi ranjur hain hum

    mere afsar mere aaqa tu ye dawa sun le

    apni aadat ko na chhoDenge tu itna sun le

    thi to maujud azal hi se ye rishwat ki phaban

    ye buzurgon ki riwayat ye buzurgon ka chalan

    kaise kah dun ki mujhe hoti hai is se uljhan

    ye maza wo hai ki aadi hain mere kaam-o-dahan

    hum pe ghaflat hui tari to corruption bhi sawar

    lakh roti rahi public na suni us ki pukar

    khaya ohde ki badaulat jo hazaron ka udhaar

    ek hi kes mein karne lage hum beDa par

    hae afsos wahi lens ne hum ko pakDa

    zindagi bhar ke liye ho gaya qaem jhagDa

    hum to ullu hain teri dhons mein rahte hi rahe

    jis taraf tu ne kaha josh mein bahte hi rahe

    phir bhi kyun aankh dikhata hai tu DanDa le kar

    kya nahin KHush tera ji rupiyon ka baTwa le kar

    apni taD apni ana ko bhi miTaya hum ne

    KHol chehre pe ghulami ka chaDhaya hum ne

    hukm afsar ka bahar-haal bajaya hum ne

    us ke chamchon ko bahut mal chaTaya hum ne

    phir bhi afsar ko gila hai ki wafadar nahin

    hum wafadar nahin wo bhi to dil-dar nahin
