Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

jhilmil taarey neel gagan mein
pyaar mere man mein jhilmil
piyaa ko manaa ke apnaa banaa ke ae
naachoon pawan sang hilmil
jhilmil taarey neel gagan mein
pyaar mere man mein jhilmil

kahoon kyaa main kaisee bahaar hai ae
dil ke aangan mein kaun hai ae
doley kaun naainon ki oat mein
man ke darpan mein kaun hai ae
pyaar mere man mein jhilmil
jhilmil taarey neel gagan mein
pyaar mere man mein jhilmil
piyaa ko manaa ke apnaa banaa ke aey
naachoon pawan sang hilmil

mere saath raat bhee hans padee
woh nazaarey badal gaye aey
teraa haath haath mein aa gayaa
raah mein deep jal gaye ae
pyaar mere man mein jhilmil
jhilmil taarey neel gagan mein
pyaar mere man mein jhilmil
piyaa ko manaa ke
apnaa banaa ke ae
naachoon pawan sang hilmil
