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

Chhod baabul ka ghar mohe pi ke nagar aaj jaana padaa

Posted on: October 27, 2009


I have posted a few songs from ‘Baabul” (1950) already. Al these songs were (and still are) very popular. But one of the most popular (and as yet unposted) song from this movie is the iconic song “chhod baabul ka ghar mohe pi ke nagar aaj jaana padaa”.

The reason why I did not post this song earlier is that this song seems to have too many versions and it is played in the movie in small segments at various times, and I thought that it was too time consuming to post all of them. However, I have now located two video links where many of these parts have been combined together to form two versions of the song, viz the female version (sung by Shamshad Begam and the chorus) and the male version (sung by Talat Mehmood and Rafi). I think that some more version (s) of this song are still left, but I think these two versions should suffice for our purpose.

This song is written by Shakeel Badayuni and its music is composed by Naushad. The song was picturised on Nargis, Dilip Kumar etc.

Female(Shamshad Begam)version

Male(Talat/Rafi )version

Song-Chhod babul ka ghar mohe pi ke nagar aaj jaana padaa(Baabul ) (1950) Singers-Shamshad Begam/Talat Mehmood,Rafi, Lyrics-Shakeel Badayuni, MD-Naushad

Lyrics

——————————————————-
Female (Shamshad Begam) version

chhod baabul kaa ghar, mohe pi ke nagar
aaj jaanaa padaa
o
aaj jaanaa padaa
chhod baabul kaa ghar, mohe pi ke nagar
aaj jaanaa padaa

sang sakhiyon ke bachpan bitaati thi main
ho bitaati thi main
byaah gudiyon ka hans hans rachaati thi main
haan rachaati thi main
sabse munh mod kar kya bataaun kidhar
piya gaana pada
ho aaj jaana padaa
chhod baabul kaa ghar, mohe pi ke nagar
aaj jaanaa padaa

chhod baabul kaa ghar, mohe pi ke nagar
aaj jaanaa padaa
chhod baabul kaa ghar, mohe pi ke nagar
aaj jaanaa padaa

yaad maike ki dil se bhulaaye chali
haan bhulaaye chali
preet saajan ki man mein basaaye chali
haan basaaye chali
yaad kar ke ye ghar, royin aankhen magar
muskuraanaa padaa
o aaj jaanaa padaa

chhod baabul kaa ghar, mohe pi ke nagar
aaj jaanaa padaa
chhod baabul kaa ghar, mohe pi ke nagar
aaj jaanaa padaa
chhod baabul kaa ghar, mohe pi ke nagar
aaj jaanaa padaa

——————————————–
Male(Talat Mehmood/Rafi )version

chhod baabul kaa ghar, mohe pi ke nagar
aaj jaanaa padaa
ho o aaj jaanaa padaa
pahan ulfat ka gahna
dola aaya piyaa kaa
sakhi main chali
ye chhoota nagar
is liye chhod kar
mohe jaana padaa
o aaj jaana padaa

aaa aaa
aaa aaa
aao saajan khade hai duaar
lene ko aaye kahaar
doli mein ho jaa sawaar

This song is beautiful but I cannot bear to listen to it, even today, after 32 years of marriage! It brings tears to my eyes every time I listen to it, and it did, last night, when I listened to it here. When i saw the movie a couple of years back, I actually fast forwarded through the song! Both the music and the lyrics are great, and Shamshad Begum’s voice adds poignancy to the song.

It is a real masterpiece.

an ever green song of bollywood!

Can you include the song “yeh galiyan yeh chubaraah” from Premrog?
