'anīs' dam bharosā nahīñ Thahar jaao

charāġh le ke kahāñ sāmne havā ke chale

'anis' dam ka bharosa nahin Thahar jao

charagh le ke kahan samne hawa ke chale

āshiq ko dekhte haiñ dupaTTe ko taan kar

dete haiñ ham ko sharbat-e-dīdār chhān kar

aashiq ko dekhte hain dupaTTe ko tan kar

dete hain hum ko sharbat-e-didar chhan kar

ashk-e-ġham dīda-e-pur-nam se sambhāle na ga.e

ye vo bachche haiñ jo maañ baap se paale na ga.e

ashk-e-gham dida-e-pur-nam se sambhaale na gae

ye wo bachche hain jo man bap se pale na gae

tamām umr jo ham se be-ruḳhī sab ne

kafan meñ ham bhī azīzoñ se muñh chhupā ke chale

tamam umr jo ki hum se be-ruKHi sab ne

kafan mein hum bhi azizon se munh chhupa ke chale

'anīs' āsāñ nahīñ ābād karnā ghar mohabbat

ye un kaam hai jo zindagī barbād karte haiñ

'anis' aasan nahin aabaad karna ghar mohabbat ka

ye un ka kaam hai jo zindagi barbaad karte hain

lagā rahā huuñ mazāmīn-e-nau ke phir ambār

ḳhabar karo mere ḳhirman ke ḳhoshā-chīnoñ ko

laga raha hun mazamin-e-nau ke phir ambar

KHabar karo mere KHirman ke KHosha-chinon ko

karīm jo tujhe denā hai be-talab de de

faqīr huuñ pa nahīñ ādat-e-savāl mujhe

karim jo tujhe dena hai be-talab de de

faqir hun pa nahin aadat-e-sawal mujhe

misāl-e-māhī-e-be-āb mauj taḌpā

habāb phuuT ke ro.e jo tum nahā ke chale

misal-e-mahi-e-be-ab mauj taDpa ki

habab phuT ke roe jo tum naha ke chale

gul-dasta-e-ma.ānī ko na.e Dhañg se bāñdhūñ

ik phuul mazmūñ ho to sau rañg se bāñdhūñ

gul-dasta-e-maani ko nae Dhang se bandhun

ek phul ka mazmun ho to sau rang se bandhun

garmī se muztarib thā zamāna zamīn par

bhun jaatā thā jo girtā thā daanā zamīn par

garmi se muztarib tha zamana zamin par

bhun jata tha jo girta tha dana zamin par
