nashsha thā zindagī sharāboñ se tez-tar

ham gir paḌe to maut uThā le ga.ī hameñ

nashsha tha zindagi ka sharabon se tez-tar

hum gir paDe to maut uTha le gai hamein

zaḳhm jo ne diye tujh ko dikhā to duuñ magar

paas tere bhī nasīhat ke sivā hai aur kyā

zaKHm jo tu ne diye tujh ko dikha to dun magar

pas tere bhi nasihat ke siwa hai aur kya

jaane kis shahr meñ ābād hai

ham haiñ barbād yahāñ tere baad

jaane kis shahr mein aabaad hai tu

hum hain barbaad yahan tere baad

ġham-e-hayāt ne baḳhshe haiñ saare sannāTe

kabhī hamāre bhī pahlū meñ dil dhaḌaktā thā

gham-e-hayat ne baKHshe hain sare sannaTe

kabhi hamare bhi pahlu mein dil dhaDakta tha

tark-e-ta.alluqāt bas intihā na pūchh

ab ke to maiñ ne tark kiyā apne aap ko

tark-e-talluqat ki bas intiha na puchh

ab ke to main ne tark kiya apne aap ko

akele paar utar ke bahut hai ranj mujhe

maiñ us bojh uThā kar bhī tair saktā thā

akele par utar ke bahut hai ranj mujhe

main us ka bojh uTha kar bhi tair sakta tha
