aadam jism jab ki anāsir se mil banā

kuchh aag bach rahī thī so āshiq dil banā

aadam ka jism jab ki anasir se mil bana

kuchh aag bach rahi thi so aashiq ka dil bana

abas ghar basātā hai mirī āñkhoñ meñ ai pyāre

kisī ne aaj tak dekhā bhī hai paanī pe ghar Thahrā

abas tu ghar basata hai meri aankhon mein ai pyare

kisi ne aaj tak dekha bhi hai pani pe ghar Thahra
