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

Dam bhar jo udhar munh phere

Posted on: April 10, 2009


It is a boat song, chaayageet song, sensuous song, romantic song, all rolled into one.

Yes, I am talking about this song from “Awaara” that goes “dam bhar jo udhar munh phere”. Every associated with the creating of this song was at that time young/ fresh and at his/her creative best. The team of Shankar Jaikishan, Shailendra, Lata, Mukesh and Raj Kapoor Nargis delivered this remarkable piece of art.

Most people may have only listened to the song. And indeed that is how a song got popular those days when this movie was released. of course, this movie was a big hit and many of these listeners watched the movie too. Of course, that was more than five decades ago and one needed to go to the movie hall for that.

These day, all one needs is an internet connection and one can savour a song along with its video. So here is this song. Enjoy it along with its video.


Song-dam bhar jo udhar munh phere (Awaara)(1951) Singers-Lata, Mukesh, Shailendra, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

dam bhar jo udhar munh phere
dam bhar jo udhar munh phere, o chandaa
mai unse pyaar kar loongi, baaten hazaar kar loongi
dam bhar jo udhar munh phere
dam bhar jo udhar munh phere, o chandaa
mai unse pyaar kar loongi, baaten hazaar kar loongi

dil kartaa hai pyaar ke sajde
dil kartaa hai pyaar ke sajde
aur main bhi unke saath
chaand ko chandaa roz hi dekhe
meri pahli raat, ho … meri pahli raat
baadal mein ab chhup jaa re o chandaa
mai unse pyaar kar loongi, baaten hazaar kar loongi
dam bhar jo idhar munh phere
dam bhar jo idhar munh phere, o chandaa
mai unse pyaar kar loonggaa, nazren to chaar kar loongaa

mai chor hoon kaam hai chori
mai chor hoon kaam hai chori
duniyaa mein hoon badnaam
dil ko churaataa aayaa hoon main
yehi meraa kaam, ho … yehi meraa kaam
aanaa tu gawaahi dene o chandaa
mai unse pyaar kar loongaa, nazren to chaar kar loongaa

dil ko churaake kho mat jaanaa
dil ko churaake kho mat jaanaa
raah na jaanaa bhool
in kadmon se kuchal naa denaa
mere dil kaa phool, ho … mere dil kaa phool
ye baat unhen samjhaa de o chandaa
mai unse pyaar kar loongi, baaten hazaar kar loongi
dam bhar jo idhar munh phere, o chandaa
mai unse pyaar kar loonga, nazren to chaar kar loonga
dam bhar jo udhar munh phere

I have always loved this song.
It is one of my favourites.
Everything about it is perfect.
There are so many songs of the 1950s that I can listen to time and time again.
This is one of them.
So melodious.

Lovely song, and two very different approaches to the same love!

The prelude background music before this song has the tune of the song, “Na maangoo sona chandi…” almost 20 years before the song was born. Composed by SJ and transferred to LP by RK.

Thanks for this interesting trivia, Abhay.

What a great work done !!!!!
I salute you for your hard work in collecting and organising all the song and Videos. it is not an easy work…
