Aisi ik raath

Sharaab aankhon ki hain, mehak zulfon ka hain
Meri baahaon mein aaj, hoor jannat ki hain

Yeh saara aalam tho jhoome hain masti mein
Yeh bhi to shaamil hai meri khushi mein
Aise hi tum meri baahon mein rehna
Aur is raat ko, jaane na dena

Dil to diwaana hai, Dar bhi thodaa sa hain
Raat ka yeh samaa, sanam kaatilaana hain

Zulfon ka baadal jo chaaya hai dil pe
Yeh aaj barse to mujhko Dubo de
Honton ko tum mere honton pe rakhnaa
Aur jo bhi kehnaa ho, aankhon se kehnaa

Pyaas honton ko hain, TtanDak hawaa mein hain
Mausam kahe ke aaj, kuch ho jaana hain


... A dedication to the bollywood tradition of artificial rain and the wet yellow sarees

Gulon pe chamka shabnam

Gulon pe chamka shabnam ke tere hont muskuraaye hain
Tere in do aankhon mein batha kithne maikhaane hai

Hum to sharaabi puraane hain
Par itne bhi kab jhoome hain
Ik tera chehraa dekhaa hain
Saare jahaan ko bhoole hain

Yeh lehraataa aanchal hain, Ya jhoomta mera yeh dil hain
Tu ne zulf jo bhikhraaye hain, Is dilpe ghirtaa baadal hain

Barsaat to kitne dekhen hain
Par yoon to kabhi naa bheege hain
Ik tera chehraa dekhaa hain
Saare jahan ko bhoole hain

Kya mast hai teri chaal re, Are hum to bhoole raah re
Nakhre there hazaar re, Kaatil adaayen kamaal re

Hum to aashiq deewaane hain
Ab marne ko bhi soche hain
Ik tera chehra dekhaa hain
Saare jahan ko bhoole hain
