Mujhko yaaron maaf karna main nashe mein hoon

Posted on: January 8, 2009


In earlier days, Bollywood movies had specialists doing specialised kind of work. Villains would commit the dark deeds, comedians would make people laugh, hero would do his herogiri etc.

In earlier days of Bollywood, drinking fell under comedy and so we had some comedians who were made incharge of drunk scenes. Names of Johny Walker and Keshto Mukherjee readily come to mind. In fact, Johny Walker’s screen name itself is taken from the angrezi daru called Johny Walker.

But in 1950s and 1960s, even some heroes took over doing drinking scenes. Being heroes, they began to sing drunkard songs as well.

Here is one of the first such drunkard songs sung by a hero. The heo is Raj Kapoor and the song is created by his usual gang viz Singer is Mukesh, lyricist is Shailendra while Shanker Jaikishan composed the music.

As far as popularity of songs is concderned, it is one of the iconic drunkard songs. It is one song that has widely been sung, imitated, and drawn inspiration from. For instance,”Naseeb” song “Chal mere bhai”, created some two decades later,contains the first line from this song.


Song-mujh ko yaaron maaf karnaa, mai nashe mein hoon ( Main nashe me hoon) (1959) Singer-Mukesh, Lyrics- Shailendra, MD- Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

zaahid sharaab peene de masjid mein baithkar
yaa wo jagah bataa de jahaan par khudaa na ho
mujh ko yaaron maaf karnaa main nashe mein hoon
mujh ko yaaron maaf karnaa main nashe mein hoon
ab to mumkin hai bahaknaa main nashe mein hoon
mujh ko yaaron maaf karnaa main nashe mein hoon

kal ki yaadein mit rahi hai dard bhi hai kam
ab zaraa aaraam se aa jaa rahaa hai dam
arre aa jaa rahaa hai dam
kam hai ab dil kaa tadapnaa main nashe mein hoon
ab to mumkin hai bahakna main nashe mein hoon
mujh ko yaaron maaf karnaa main nashe mein hoon

dhal chuki hai raat kab ki uth gayi mahfil
main kahaan jaaun nahin koyi meri manzil
nahin koyi meri manzil
do kadam mushqil hai chalnaa main nashe mein hoon
mujh ko yaaron maaf karnaa main nashe mein hoon

hai zaraa si baat aur chhalke hai kuchh pyaale
par na jaane kyaa kahenge ye jahaan waale
kahenge ye jahaan waale
tum bas itnaa yaad rakhnaa main nashe mein hoon
ab to mumkin hai bahakna main nashe mein hoon
mujh ko yaaron maaf karnaa main nashe mein hoon

yaaron mujhe muaaf rakho main nashe mein hoon
ab do to jaam khaali hi do, main nashe mein hoon
