Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

ab kaahey pachhtaaye manwaa
ab kaahey pachhtaaye ae
sukh ki ghadiyaan
beet chukee hain aen
sukh mein na kar haayye manwaa
dukh mein na kar haayye manwaa
ab kaahey pachhtaaye

bichhad gayee woh o
man ki raanee ee
khathm huyee ab prem kahaanee
bichhad gayee woh o
man ki raanee ee
khathm huyee ab prem kahaanee
yaad hi uskee rahee nishaani
kaahey ko ghabraaye manwaa
ab kaahey pachhtaaye

jeevan hai sukh dukh kee kyaaree
jeevan hai sukh dukh kee kyaaree
kabhee kaanton mein
kabhee phoolon mein
beetey umar hamaaree
kabhee kaanton mein
kabhee phoolon mein
beetey umar hamaaree
tu sukh hee sukh kyon chaahey manwaa
ab kaahey pachhtaaye

door huaa jo nain milaake ae
ab kyon uske geet sunaaye
door huaa jo naain milaake
ab kyon uske geet sunaay ae
moorakh apnee laaj ganwaakar
phir bhi samajh na paaye
haayye madhur yaad sataaye manwaa aaa
ab kaahey pachhtaaye
manwaa aaa aaa aaa
