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

O mere yaar Tommy

Posted on: May 2, 2009

If Shammi Kapoor could act in “An Evening in Paris” then Vishwajeet could act in “Night in London”. If Shammi Kapoor’s movie could have lilting music by Shankar Jaikishan, then Vishwajeet movie would have the music of Laxmikant Pyarelal to match.

“Night in London” in fact had a comedy song too. And this lesser known song was picturised on Johny Walker. In this song, Johny Walker is all decked up to go and meet his girl friend, but he comes across a fierce dog on the way. Now, we have had many songs sung by a man to a lady to appease her, here Johny Walker sings trying to curry favour with the canine.

This funny song was written by Anand Bakshi and it was sung by Rafi.

Song-O mere yaar Tommy (Night in London (1967) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics- Anand Bakshi, MD- Laxmikant Pyarelal


O mere yaar Tommy
deta hoon main salaami
rastaa naa rok meraa jaane de
O mere yaar Tommy
deta hoon main salaami
rastaa naa rok meraa jaane de
dil naa tod mera
daaman chhod mera
mujhe jaane de
main jaaun ?
O mere yaar Tommy
deta hoon main salaami
rastaa naa rok mera jaane de

Aashiqon ki aahen buri hotin hain
aah meri tujhe lag jaayegi
ek din teri mehbooba bhi
raat bhar tujhe tadpaayegi
ro ro kar sunaayegaa
judaayi ka afsaanaa
tujhe meri qasam
mujhe roothe sanam ko manaane de
manaaun ?
O mere yaar Tommy
deta hoon main salaami
rastaa naa rok meraa jaane de

dekh milne de mujhe us se
saamne khadi jo wo haseena hai
aaj biscuit khale jitne khaane hain
aaj dudhu peele jitna peena hai
main warnaa muhabbat me ho jaaungaa deewaana
loon main teri balaayen
doon main tujhko duaayen
paas aane de
main aaun ?
O mere yaar Tommy
deta hoon main salaami
rastaa naa rok meraa jaane de
O mere yaar Tommy
detaa hoon main salaami
rastaa naa rok meraa jaane de
dil na tod mera
daaman chhod meraa
mujhe jaane de
main jaaun ?

seeing johnny walker in this song reminded me of a few other johnny walker songs. there was “all line clear ” from the raj kapoor-nargis movie “chori chori”. then there was “main bambai ka babu naam mera anjaana” from the dilip kumar movie “naya daur”.
i just wanted to know if you ve already posted these songs. infact my dad once told me there were a few movies with johnny walker as hero and “cartoon m.a” is one of them

Johny Walker songs were always fun. I used to enjoy his acting and also his songs.
Some other timepass songs that come to mind :
Sar jo tera chakraaye (Pyaasa) – one of my favourites
Ye duniya gol hai (Chaudhvin Ka Chand)
Tu hi meri laxmi, tu hi meri chhaya (Duniya)
Jaane kahan mera jigar gaya ji (Mr. and Mrs 55)
Jungle mein mor naacha (Madhumati)
Meri jaan apne aashiq ko (Mere Huzoor)
Mera yaar bana hai dulha (Chaudhvin Ka Chand)
It is his 85th birth anniversary on 15th May, maybe you could think of having Johnny Walker special on that day, Atul ? 😉

All lovely halka-phulka songs.

Good idea, Raja.

It would be his 86th anniversary as he was born in 1923.
Looking forward to more Johnny Walker songs.
