Ab kyun us din ka zikar karo

Jab dil tukre ho jaye ga

Aur saare gham mitt jaayein ge

Jo kuch paaya kho jaaye ga

Jo mill na saka woh paayein ge

Yay din to wohee pehla din hai

Jo pehla din tha chahat ka

Hum jis ki tamanna karte rahe

Aur jis se har dum darte rahe

Yay din to kitni baar aaya

So baar basay aur ujar gayay

So baar luttay aur phir paaya

Ab kyun us din ki fiqar karo

Jab dil tukre ho jaaye ga

Aur saare gham mitt jaayein ge

Tum khauf-o-khatter se dar guzro

Jo hona hai so hona hai

Gar hansna hai to hansna hai

Gar rona hai to rona hai

Tum apni karni kar guzzro

Jo hoga dekha jaaye ga.
