Song-Chaand kitni door thha (Afsaana)(1966) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

chaand kitni door thha
sitaare kitni door thhe
tum jo aa gaye
toh sab kareeb aa gaye ae
chaand kitni door thha
sitaare kitni door thhe
tum jo aa gaye
toh sab kareeb aa gaye ae

tumhaaraa haath raat pe
heennaa kaa rang mal gayaa
tumhaaraa haath raat pe
heennaa kaa rang mal gayaa
hamaare dil ke taak mein
charaag-e-shaukh jal gayaa
do badan ke saaye anjuman
sajaa gaye
chaand kitni door thhaa
sitaare kitni door thhe
tum jo aa gaye
toh sab kareeb aa gaye

dulhan banee huyee khadi
ho tum libaas-e-noor mein
dulhan banee huyee khadi
ho tum libaas-e-noor mein
ke sar jhukaa rahi hai
chaandni mere huzoor mein
aas paas kitne khwaab jhilmilaa gaye ae
chaand kitni door thha
sitaare kitni door thhe
tum jo aa gaye
toh sab kareeb aa gaye

bujhaa do pyaas pyaar ki
labon se kuchch toh bol do
bujhaa do pyaas pyaar ki
labon se kuchch toh bol do
bas ek neend so sakoon
ye zulf-e-naaz khol do
thaam lo hamein ke hum
toh dagamagaa gaye ae
chaand kitni door thha
sitaare kitni door thhe
tum jo aa gaye
toh sab kareeb aa gaye ae
