Song-Main tawaayaf hoon mujra karoongi (Mehbooba)(1976) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-R D Burman


aaa aaa aaa
aa aaa aaa
aaa aaa

aapke shehar mein
aayee hoon shauk se
jauk se
phir bhi darti hoon main
apnaa dil todkar
dillagi chhodkar
ek taazaa ghazal
pesh karti hoon main
ke jashn-e-shaadi hai
raat aadhi hai
jashn-e-shaadi hai
raat aadhi hai
khushnaseebon ko shab mubaarak ho
main pashemaan hoon
kuchch pareshaan hoon
mere ashqon ko
aap mat dekho
jaane mehboobi
dard mein doobi
cheez gaaoongi
gham sahi dil mein
phir bhi mehfil mein
kyaa kisi se
kyaa kisi se ae
kyaa kissi se
main shikwaa karoongi..eee…eeee
main tawaaif hoon mujraa karoongi
main tawaaif hoon mujraa karoongi

dil ki dushman hoon
main gham ki dulhan hoon
toote waadon se ae
bhooli yaadon se
jaan jalti hai
chot lagti hai
phir bhi zindaa hoon
main sharmindaa hoon
ae meharbaanon
mere deewaanon
thheek kehte ho
chand logon ko
pyaar karne kaa
haque nahin hotaa
kyaa main phir yeh ae
kyaa main phir yeh
kyaa main phir yeh
tamannaa karoongi ee ee
main tawaaif hoon mujraa karoongi
main tawaaif hoon mujraa karoongi

saamne hai tu
baandh loon ghunghroo
saamne hai tu
baandh loon ghunghroo
raqs jaari ho
raat saari ho
phir khudaa jaane
tere deewaane
kab tujhe dekhen
jab tujhe dekhen
kuchch na ho baaqi
iss liye saaqi
aaj peene de
zakhm seene de
bhool jaane de ae
dagmagaane de
hosh mein rehke ae
hosh mein rehke
hosh mein rehke
main kyaa karoongi ee
main tawaaif hoon mujraa karoongi ee
main tawaaif hoon mujraa karoongi

Dancer Gopi krishna directed this dance very well and Hema ji enacted it very well and Lata ji`s sung with required emotions i.e., jealousy of a woman who was ditched by her lover
