    egzibshan shaan anokhī

    har shai umda har shai chokhī

    aqlīdas naapī jokhī

    jashn-e-azīm is saal huā hai

    shāhī fort meñ ball huā hai

    raushan har ik hall huā hai

    qissa-e-māzī haal huā hai

    hai mash.hūr-e-kūcha-e-barzan

    ball meñ nācheñ lady-corzon

    tā.ir-e-hosh the sab ke larzan

    hai ye bandish zehn-e-rasā ne

    koī maane ḳhvāh na maane

    sunte haiñ ham to ye afsāne

    jis ne dekhā ho vo jaane

    sar mein shauq ka sauda dekha

    dehli ko hum ne bhi ja dekha

    jo kuchh dekha achchha dekha

    kya batlaen kya kya dekha

    jamuna-ji ke paT ko dekha

    achchhe suthre ghaT ko dekha

    sab se unche laT ko dekha

    hazrat duke-connaught' ko dekha

    palTan aur risale dekhe

    gore dekhe kale dekhe

    sanginen aur bhaale dekhe

    band bajaane wale dekhe

    KHemon ka ek jangal dekha

    us jangal mein mangal dekha

    barahma aur warangal dekha

    izzat KHwahon ka danggal dekha

    saDken thin har kamp se jari

    pani tha har pump se jari

    nur ki maujen lamp se jari

    tezi thi har jump se jari

    Dali mein narangi dekhi

    mahfil mein sarangi dekhi

    bairangi barangi dekhi

    dahr ki ranga-rangi dekhi

    achchhe-achchhon ko bhaTka dekha

    bhiD mein khate jhaTka dekha

    munh ko agarche laTka dekha

    dil darbar se aTka dekha

    hathi dekhe bhaari-bharkam

    un ka chalna kam kam tham tham

    zarrin jhulen nur ka aalam

    milon tak wo cham-cham cham-cham

    pur tha pahlu-e-masjid-e-jame

    raushaniyan thin har-su lame

    koi nahin tha kisi ka samea

    sab ke sab the did ke tame

    surKHi saDak par kuTti dekhi

    sans bhi bhiD mein ghuTti dekhi

    aatish-bazi chhuTti dekhi

    lutf ki daulat luTti dekhi

    chauki ek chau-lakhkhi dekhi

    KHub hi chakkhi-pakhkhi dekhi

    har-su neamat rakkhi dekhi

    shahd aur dudh ki makkhi dekhi

    ek ka hissa mann-o-salwa

    ek ka hissa thoDa halwa

    ek ka hissa bhiD aur balwa

    mera hissa dur ka jalwa

    awaj brish raja dekha

    partaw taKHt-o-taj ka dekha

    rang-e-zamana aaj ka dekha

    ruKH corzon mahraj ka dekha

    pahunche phand ke sat samundar

    tahat mein un ke bison bandar

    hikmat-o-danish un ke andar

    apni jagah har ek sikandar

    auj-e-baKHt-e-mulaqi un ka

    charKH-e-haft-tabaaqi un ka

    mahfil un ki saqi un ka

    aankhen meri baqi un ka

    hum to un ke KHair-talab hain

    hum kya aise hi sab ke sab hain

    un ke raj ke umda Dhab hain

    sab saman-e-aish-o-tarab hain

    egzibshan ki shan anokhi

    har shai umda har shai chokhi

    aqlidas ki napi jokhi

    man bhar sone ki lagat sokhi

    jashn-e-azim is sal hua hai

    shahi fort mein ball hua hai

    raushan har ek hall hua hai

    qissa-e-mazi haal hua hai

    hai mashhur-e-kucha-e-barzan

    ball mein nachen lady-corzon

    tair-e-hosh the sab ke larzan

    rashk se dekh rahi thi har zan

    hall mein chamkin aa ke yaka-yak

    zarrin thi poshak jhka-jhak

    mahw tha un ka auj-e-sama tak

    charKH pe zohra un ki thi gahak

    go raqqasa-e-auj-e-falak thi

    us mein kahan ye nok-palak thi

    indr ki mahfil ki jhalak thi

    bazm-e-ishrat subh talak thi

    ki hai ye bandish zehn-e-rasa ne

    koi mane KHwah na mane

    sunte hain hum to ye afsane

    jis ne dekha ho wo jaane
