Song-Ae rote huye saawan mujhe kuchh to bataa(Roomaal)(1949) Singer-Zeenat Begam, Lyrics-Roopbaani


ae rote huye saawan
mujhe kuchh to bata
dil toot gaya mera
ab main karoon kya

ae rote huye saawan
hamne bhi kisi ko
thha apna banaaya
aur dil mein basaaya
usne bhi mohabbat ka aa
afsaana na suna
afsaana na suna

har zakhm mera dil hai ae
aur dil mein hain armaan
har zakhm mera dil hai ae
aur dil mein hain arman
kis kis ko main samjhaaun
mujhe ae ae itna to samjha
ae rote huye saswan
mujhe kuchh to bata
dil toot gaya mera
ab main karoon kya

aankh hon jo do chaar
to palkon mein chhupa loon
palkon me inchhupa loon
dariya ko bhala aankhon mein
loon kaise chhupa
loon kaise chhupa
ae rote huye saawan
mujhe kuchh to bata
dil toot gaya mera
ab main karoon kya

Melodious song. Thanks.
As a fan of Hansraj Bahl, and have heard most of his songs, the tune seems to have been set by Bahl, in MY opinion.

Thanks for this confirmation about the Music director.
