Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

Insaaf ka taraazu
Jo haath mein uthhaaye
Jurmon ko thheek toley
Jurmon ko thheek toley
aisa na ho ke
kal ka itihaaskaar bole
Mujrim se bhi jyaada
Munsif ne zulm dhaaya

Kee pesh uske aage
Gham ki gawaahiyaan bhi
rakkhi nazar ke aage
dil ki tabaahiyaan bhi
usko yakeen na aaya
insaaf kar naa paaya
aur apne is amal se
badkaar mujrimon ke
naapaak hauslon ko
kuchh aur bhi badhaaya
Insaaf ka taraazu
jo haath mein uthhaaye
ye baat yaad rakkhe
ye baat yaad rakkhe

Sab munsifo se upar
Ek aur bhi hai munsif
wo do jahaan ka maalik
sab haal jaanta hai
neki ke aur badi ke
aehwaal jaanta hai
duniya ke faislon se
maayoos jaane waala
aisa na ho ke uske
darbaar mein pukaare
aisa na ho ke uske
Insaaf ka taraazu
ek baar phir se toley
mujrim ke jurm ko bhi
Munsif ki bhool ko bhi
Munsif ki bhool ko bhi
aur apna faisla de
wo faisla ke jis se ae
har rooh kaanp uthhe
ae ae ae ae

Thanks Prakash ji for this audio link ;
In audio the first stanza ends with –
Jurmon ko thheek toley
Jurmon ko thheek toley

and the second stanza starts with –
Insaaf ka taraazu
Jo haath mein uthhaaye
ye baat yaad rakkhe
ye baat yaad rakkhe …
