“Girl Friend”(1960) was directed by Satyen Bose for Basu Chitra Mandir, Bombay and it had Kishore Kumar, Waheeda Rehman, Bipin Gupta, Nazeer Hussain, Leela Mishra, Jagdev, Dhumal, Gautam, Keshto, Master Anwar, Daisy Irani etc in it.

This is a movie which has been by and large forgotten.

This movie had six songs in it and most songs from this movie have been forgotten as well. But it is this movie that has this memorable Kishore Kumar-Sudha Malhotra duet namely Kashti kaa khaamosh safar.

Of late, I have discovered (thanks to Avinash Scrapwala) that this movie has some forgotten gems in it that are required to be dug up and presented to music lovers.

Yesterday, we presented one such song from the movie viz. Jhuk jhuk bhoori maa ko karo parnaam (Girl Friend).

Today, we proudly present another forgotten gem from “Girl Friend”(1960).

This song, the fifth song of “Girl Friend”(1960) to appear in the blog is a “paisa” song. It is an instructive song, as well as a song with a message. This song tells us about the history of money, from the barter system to the present currency system, and tells us how human behaviour has undergone a change for the worse thanks to the introduction of money.

This song is sung by Lata, Hemant Kumar, Ranu Mukherji and chorus. The lyrics are penned (unsurprisingly) by Sahir Ludhianvi. Music is composed by Hemant Kumar.

As with most songs from this movie, only the audio of this song is available, so it is not possible to say how and on whom this song is picturised. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

Kehte hain ise paisa aa bachchon
Ye cheez badi maamooli hai
Lekin is paise ke peechhe
Sab duniya rasta bhooli hai

Insaan ki banaayi cheez hai ye
Lekin insaan pe bhaari hai
Halki si jhalak is paise ki
Dharm aur imaan pe bhaari hai
Ye jhooth ko sach kar deta hai
aur sach ko jhooth banaata hai
Bhagwaan nahin par har ghar mein
Bhagwaan ki padvee paata hai

Is paise ke badle duniya mein
Insaanon ki mehnat bikti hai
Jismon ki haraarat bikti hai
Roohon ki sharaafat bikti hai
Sardaar khareede jaate hain
Dildaar kharide jaate hain
Mitti ke sahi par is se hi
Avtaar khareede jaate hain

Is paise ke khatir duniya mein
aabaad watan bant jaate hain
Dharti tukde ho jaati hai
Laashon ke kafan bant jaate hain
Izzat bhi is se milti hai
Taazeem bhi is se milti hai
Tehzeeb bhi is se aati hai
Taalim bhi is se milti hai

Ham aaj tumhe is paise ka
Saara itihaas bataate hain
Kitne yug ab tak guzre hain
Un sab ki jhalak dikhlaate hain
Ik aisa waqt bhi thha jag mein
Jab is paise ka naam na thha
Cheezen cheezon se tulti thhin
Cheezon ka kuchh bhi daam na thha

Cheezon se cheez badalne ka
Yeh dhang bahut bekaar sa thha
Laana bhi kathin thha cheezon ka
Le jaana bhi dushwaar sa thha
Insaan ne tab milkar socha
Kyun waqt itna barbaad karen
Har cheez ki jo keemat thehre
Wo cheez na kyun ijaad karen

Is tarah hamaari duniya mein
Pehla paisa taiyyaar huaa aa
Aur is paise ki hasrat mein
Insaan zaleel o khaar huaa

Paise waale is duniya mein
Jaageeron ke maalik ban baithhe
Mazdooron aur kisaanon ki
Taqdeeron ke maalik ban baithhe
Jungon mein ladaaya bhookhon ko
Aur apne sar par taaj rakhaa
Nirdhan ko diya parlok ka sukh
Apne liye jag ka raaj rakhaa
Pandit aur Mullaa in ke liye
Mazhab ke saheefe laate rahe
Shaayar taareefen likhte rahe
Gaayak darbaari gaate rahe

O o o o o
o o o

Waisaa hi karenge ham
jaisa Tujhe chaahiye
Paisa hamen chaahiye

Waisaa hi karenge ham
jaisa Tujhe chaahiye
Paisa hamen chaahiye

Hal tere jotenge
Khet tere boyenge
Dhhor tere haankenge
Bojh tera dhhoyenge
Paisa hamen chaahiye
Paisa
Paisa
Waisaa hi karenge ham jaisa
Tujhe chaahiye
Paisa hamen chaahiye

Paisa hamen de de raja
Gun tere gaayenge
Tere bachche bachchiyon ki
Khair manaayenge
Paisa hamen chaahiye

Waisaa hi karenge ham jaisa
Tujhe chaahiye
Paisa hamen chaahiye

Yug yug se yunhi is duniya mein
Ham daan ke tukde maangten hain
Hal jot ke faslein kaat ke bhi
Pakwaan ke tukde maangte hain
Lekin in bheekh ke tukdon se
Kab bhookh ka sankat door huaa
Insaan sadaa dukh jhelega
Gar khatm na ye dastoor huaa

Zanjeer bani hai kadmon ki
Woh cheez jo pehle gahnaa thhi
Bharat ke sapooton aaj tumhe
Bas itni baat hi kehna thhi
Jis waqt bade ho jaao tum
Paise ka raaj mitaa dena
Apna aur apne jaison ka
Yug yug ka karz chukaa dena aa
Yug yug ka karz chukaa dena aa

Devnagri Script Lyrics (Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)
————————————–

कहते हैं इसे पैसा बच्चों
ये चीज़ बड़ी मामूली है
लेकिन इस पैसे के पीछे
सब दुनिया रस्ता भूली हैं

इंसान की बनायी चीज़ है ये
लेकिन इंसान पे भारी हैं
हलकी सी झलक इस पैसे की
धर्म और ईमान पे भारी है
ये झूठ कों सच कर देता है
और सच कों झूठ बनाता है
भगवान नहीं पर हर घर में
भगवान की पदवी पाता है

इस पैसे के बदले दुनिया में
इंसानों की मेहनत बिकती है
जिस्मों की हरारत बिकती है
रूहों ही शराफत बिकती है
सरदार खरीदें जाते हैं
दिलदार खरीदें जाते हैं
मिट्टी के सही पर इस से ही
अवतार खरीदें जाते हैं

इस पैसे की खातिर दुनिया में
आबाद वतन बंट जाते हैं
धरती टुकड़े हो जाती है
लाशों के कफ़न बंट जाते हैं
इज्ज़त भी इस से मिलती है
ताजीम भी इस से मिलती है
तहज़ीब भी इस से आती हैं
तालीम भी इस से मिलती हैं

हम आज तुम्हे इस पैसे का
सारा इतिहास बताते हैं
कितने युग अब तक गुजरें हैं
उन सब की झलक दिखलातें हैं
इक ऐसा वक्त भी था जग में
जब इस पैसे का नाम न था
चीज़ें चीज़ों से तुलती थीं
चीज़ों का कुछ भी दाम न था

चीज़ों से चीज़ बदलने का
यह ढंग बहुत बेकार सा था
लाना भी कठिन था चीज़ों का
ले जाना भी दुश्वार सा था
इंसान ने तब मिलकर सोचा
क्यों वक्त इतना बर्बाद करें
हर चीज़ की जो कीमत ठहरे
वो चीज़ न क्यों इजाद करें

इस तरह हमारी दुनिया में
पहला पैसा तैयार हुआ
और इस पैसे की हसरत में
इंसान ज़लील ओ खार हुआ

पैसे वाले इस दुनिया में
जागीरों के मालिक बन बैठे
मजदूरों और किसानों की
तकदीरों के मालिक बन बैठे
जंगों में लड़ाया भूखों कों
और अपने सर पर ताज रखा
निर्धन कों दिया परलोक का सुख
अपने लिए जग का राज रखा
पंडित और मुल्ला इन के लिए
मज़हब के सहीफे लाते रहे
शायर तारीफें लिखते रहे
गायक दरबारी गाते रहे

ओ ओ ओ ओ
ओ ओ ओ ओ

वैसा ही करेंगे हम जैसा
तुझे चाहिए
पैसा हमें चाहिए

वैसा ही करेंगे हम जैसा
तुझे चाहिए
पैसा हमें चाहिए

हल तेरे जोतेंगे
खेत तेरे बोयेंगे
ढोर तेरे हाकेंगे
बोझ तेरा ढोएंगे
पैसा हमें चाहिए
पैसा
पैसा
वैसा ही करेंगे हम
जैसा तुझे चाहिए
पैसा हमें चाहिए

पैसा हाथ में दे दे राजा
गुण तेरे गायेंगे
तेरे बच्चे बच्चियों की
खैर मनाएंगे
पैसा हमें चाहिए

वैसा ही करेंगे हम
जैसा तुझे चाहिए
पैसा हमें चाहिए

युग युग से यूँ ही ऐसी दुनिया में
हम दान के टुकड़े मांगते हैं
हल जोत के फसलें काट के भी
पकवान के टुकड़े मांगते हैं
लेकिन इन भीख के टुकड़ों से
कब भूख का संकट दूर हुआ
इंसान सदा दुःख झेलेगा
गर खत्म न ये दस्तूर हुआ

ज़ंजीर बनी है क़दमों की
वो चीज़ जो पहले गहना थी
भारत के सपूतों आज तुम्हे
बस इतनी बात ही कहना थी
जिस वक्त बड़े हो जाओ तुम
पैसे का राज मिटा देना
अपना और अपने जैसों का
युग युग का क़र्ज़ चुका देना
युग युग का क़र्ज़ चुका देना

The last para is incongruent and unconnected. Please erase it.

This song reminds me of my college days, as a student of Economics. In one of the lectures, the professor was dwelling upon the definition and functions of Money starting from classical to the then modern view points. It was looking very complicated to me at that time until the professor gave a short definition – ‘Money is what Money does’. that is, money is a medium of exhcange, a measure of value, a store of value, etc. etc.

But in this song which I heard for the first time, Sahir Ludhianvi has given a new dimention to ‘money is what money does’ – it can buy honesty and truth, dividea country, finance the wars ………..

Thanks Avinash ji for bringing this song to the notice of the readers of the Blog.

@ Atul ji -many many thanks for this post !!
