Sab ki ho khair baba sabka bhalaa

Posted on: August 3, 2011


This is a song from “Phir Subah Hogi” (1958) about which I was not aware. I came to know about this song after I received the lyrics of this song from nahm.

Only the audio of this song is available as far as I can find out. It appears that this is a beggar/faqeer song where a beggar is seeking alms fro the passers by.

This song is sung by Rafi. Sahir Ludhianvi is the lyricist and Khayyam is the music director.

With Sahir Ludhianvi as the lyricist, one expects some powerful messages and observations in this song, and one is not disappointed. The song contains hard hitting words like like
waise to banaaya thha hamen bhi raam ne
jo bhaag hi bure hon to kisi se kya gilaa

(We too were created by God, but why should we complain if misfortune is our destiny)

Here is this song, which I heard for the first time just a few hours ago.


Song-Sab ki ho khair baba sabka bhala (Phir Subah Hogi) (1958) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Sahir Ludhianvi, MD-Khayyam

Lyrics(Provided by nahm)

sab ki ho khair baba sab ka bhala
de de bhookhe pet ko roti ka tukda
sab ki ho khair baba sab ka bhala
de de bhookhe pet ko roti ka tukda
o jaane letaa ja ghareeb ki duaa
haa aaa aaa
sab ki ho khair baba sab ka bhala
de de bhookhe pet ko roti ka tukda

jaan ki bhi khair tere maal ki bhi khair
laadli ki khair tere laal ki bhi khair
laadli ki khair tere laal ki bhi khair
hamaare paas hai hi kya duaaon ke siwa
haa aaa aaa
sab ki ho khair baba sab ka bhala
de de bhookhe pet ko roti ka tukda

raaj chaahiye na hamen taj chaahiye
khwaabon ki sachaayi hai anaaj chaahiye
dilaa de koyi paisa ya puraana kapda
haa aaa aaa
sab ki ho khair baba sab ka bhala
de de bhookhe pet ko roti ka tukda

khade hain bhikaari bane tere saamne
khade hain bhikaari bane tere saamne
waise to banaaya thha hamen bhi raam ne
waise to banaaya thha hamen bhi raam ne
jo bhaag hi bure hon to kisi se kya gilaa
hay ae ae ae
sab ki ho khair baba sab ka bhala
de de boohkhe pet ko roti ka tukda
o jaane letaa ja ghareeb ki duaa
haa aaa aaa aaa
sab ki ho khair baba sab ka bhala
de de bhookhe pet ko roti ka tukda

Atul ji,

The fifth line from top and fourth from bottom is :
“o jaane waale letaa ja ghareeb ki duaa”

I missed the word while typing. Please correct it. I had found the name of one female singer “Chandbala” at some site. But there appear to be 2 female singers.

There are numerous beggar/fakir songs in Hindi film world.This one carries some social message which comes from talented Sahirji.I have seen this film in those days but I do not remember scene therein.Anyway I am glad to revive this after decades.Thanks for upload.
