Sajan re jhooth mat bolo Khuda ke paas jaanaa hai

Posted on: July 13, 2010


I was under the impression that I had posted this song from “Teesri Kasam” long back. So I was very suprised on being informed that this song was not yet posted.

When I checked up, I found that I had posted four songs from this, and all of then immortal songs, but this song was not one of them.

Just how many memorable songs were there in “Teesri Kasam” ? When I checked up, I realised that this movie was full of superb songs in addition to the four or five that are better known. This shows how little we know about the music of our golden era, even when we are dealing with music of well known movies.

Here is this fabulous song “sajan re jhooth mat bolo Khuda ke paas jaanaa hai”. The song is picturised on a bullock cart, and the song is a philosophical song written in an easy to understand one written in simple words. Shailendra, the lyricist of this song has delivered perhaps the best song of his career in the form of this song.

This song is sung by Mukesh and it is picturised on Raj Kapoor. The music of Shankar Jaikishan is sweet and melodious and is an ideal foil to this immortal song.

Song-Sajan re jhooth mat bolo (Teesri Kasam) (1966) Singer-Mukesh, Lyrics-Shailendra, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

sajan re jhooth mat bolo,
Khudaa ke paas jaanaa hai
na haathi hai naa ghodaa hai,
wahaan paidal hi jaanaa hai
sajan re jhooth mat bolo,
Khudaa ke paas jaanaa hai
na haathi hai naa ghodaa hai,
wahaan paidal hi jaanaa hai
sajan re jhooth mat bolo

tumhaare mahal chaubaare,
yahin rah jaayenge saare
tumhaare mahal chaubaare,
yahin rah jaayenge saare
akad kis baat ki pyaare
akad kis baat ki pyaare,
ye sar phir bhi jhukaanaa hai
sajan re jhooth mat bolo,
Khudaa ke paas jaanaa hai

bhalaa keejai bhalaa hogaa,
buraa keejai buraa hogaa
bhalaa keejai bhalaa hogaa,
buraa keejai buraa hogaa
bahi likh likh ke kyaa hogaa
bahi likh likh ke kyaa hogaa,
yahin sab kuchh chukaanaa hai
sajan re jhooth mat bolo,
Khudaa ke paas jaanaa hai

ladakpan khel mein khoyaa,
jawaani neend bhar soyaa
ladakpan khel mein khoyaa,
jawaani neend bhar soyaa
budhaapaa dekh kar royaa
budhaapaa dekh kar royaa,
wahi kissaa puraanaa hai
sajan re jhooth mat bolo,
Khudaa ke paas jaanaa hai
na haathi hai naa ghodaa hai,
wahaan paidal hi jaanaa hai
sajan re jhooth mat bolo,
Khudaa ke paas jaanaa hai

Thanks Atul for the farmaish. The first time I heard this song I was absolutely bowled over with the “mukhda” and the simple lyrics. Later I learnt Shailendra always had simple yet powerful lyrics. I started liking Raj Kapoor only after hearing this song.
On YT, there is this fantastic clip of RK introducing this song in Moscow and his “voice” Mukesh stepping from the shadows and taking over.
Too bad Shailendra died heart broken after Teesri Kasam flopped. I love these songs.
