Atul’s Song A Day- A choice collection of Hindi Film & Non-Film Songs

Daal roti khaao Prabhu ke gun gaao

Posted on: September 18, 2008


Here is a song from 1973 that is funny as well as serious, both at the same time. It preaches us the value of being content with what we have rather than losing sleep over chasing mirages.

Rajinder Krishan, as usual came up with wonderful lyrics containing simple words with deep meaning. Laxmikant Pyarelal compose a nice song, sung well by Kishore and Lata. Overall, it may have been considered as a timepass song in the context of the movie, but I think the message of the song goes beyond the scope of the storyline of the by now forgotten movie.

I am happy that this song has survived and continue to be as good to listen to as it was in 1973.

Song- Dal roti khaao Prabhu ke gun gaao (Jwaar Bhaata) (1973) Singers-Kishore Kumar, Lata, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

ye samjho aur samjhaao
thodi mein mauj manaao
daal roti khaao Prabhu ke gun gaao
daal roti khaao Prabhu ke gun gaao

aji laalach mein naa aao
naa dil kaa chain ganwaao
daal roti khaao Prabhu ke gun gaao
daal roti khaao Prabhu ke gun gaao

ye samjho aur samjhaao
thodi mein mauj manaao
daal roti khaao Prabhu ke gun gaao
daal roti khaao Prabhu ke gun gaao

tan pe langoti pet mein roti
sone ko ek khatiyaa
sone ko ek khatiyaa
tan pe langoti pet mein roti
sone ko ek khatiyaa
sone ko ek khatiyaa

matlab to hai neend se chaahe
badhiyaa ho yaa ghatiyaa
badhiyaa ho yaa ghatiyaa
Raadhe-Shyaam Seetaa-Raam
O Raadhe-Shyaam Seetaa-Raam

nafrat ko door hataao aur sabko gale lagaao
daal roti khaao Prabhu ke gun gaao
daal roti khaao Prabhu ke gun gaao

chandi ki thaali waale ko
kyaa bhookh lage hai zyaadaa
kyaa bhookh lage hai zyaadaa
chandi ki thaali waale ko
kyaa bhookh lage hai zyaadaa
kyaa bhookh lage hai zyaadaa
kyon naa khaa le phir aapas mein
baant ke aadhaa-aadhaa
baant ke aadhaa-aadhaa
Raadhe-Shyaam O Seetaa-Raam
Raadhe-Shyaam O Seetaa-Raam

bhookhe ki bhookh mitaao
duniya me naam kamaao
daal roti khaao Prabhu ke gun gaao
daal roti khaao Prabhu ke gun gaao

sabse sasti cheez hai kyaa
bolo bolo bolo
chori daakaa beimaani
to phir mahngi kyaa hogi
socho socho socho
kisi ki khaatir qurbaani
chhote ko paas bithaao
bhoole ko raah dikhaao
daal roti khaao Prabhu ke gun gaao
daal roti khaao Prabhu ke gun gaao

ye samjho aur samjhaao
thodi mein mauj manaao
aji laalach mein naa aao
naa dil kaa chain ganwaao
daal roti khaao Prabhu ke gun gaao
daal roti khaao Prabhu ke gun gaao

Raadhe-Shyaam Seetaa-Raam
Raadhe-Shyaam Seetaa-Raam
Raadhe Raadhe Shyaam Seeta Seeta Raam
Raadhe Raadhe Shyaam Seeta Seeta Raam
