Jo Aaj Sahibe Mansad Hai Kal Nahi Honge, Kiraydaar Hai Zaati Makaan Thodi Hai Sab Ka Khoon Hai Shaamil Yahan Ki Mitti Main, Kisi Ke Baap Ka Hindustaan Thodi Hai Kabhi akele mein milkar jhinjod dunga usse, Jaha jaha se woh toota hain jod dunga usse Mujhe woh chhor gya yeh kamaal hain uska, Irrada maine kiya tha ki chhod dunga usse Na humsafar na kisi hum- nasheen se niklega, Hamare paanv ka kaanta hamin se niklega Aag ke paas kabhi mom ko laakar dekhoon, Ho izzazat to haath lagaakar dekhoon Dil ka mandir bada veeran nazar aata hai, Sochta hoon teri tasveer lagakar dekhoon Jawaan aankhon ke jugnoo chamak rahe honge, Ab apne gaon me amrood pak rahe honge Bhulade mujhko magar, meri ungaliyon ke nishaan, tere badan pe abhi tak chamak rahe honge
