Taaqat k dewata aj
Yun begane hue hain
Kapre noch liye hon jaise
Lekin jild utar pehne gai
In sab logon ki
Jo behangam nashe se bahir hain
Khaal utar pehne gai
Gharib ke jhulaste badan ki
Kisi yetim ki, kisi faqir ki
Kisi bebas ke zamir ki
Taaqat k dewata aj
Phir se thikane lage hain
Phir se begane hue hain
Aur hum
Matti k peshwa
Aise he dewane hue hain

Tanhayon mai rehne ki adat hai
Zanjeerain sehne ki adat hai
Haqiqat hai ye-
K taqdeerain sehne ki adat hai
Jo pardon mai chupa hai
Dunya walon ko,
Us pardai he ko cheer daine ki adat hai
Jaam pee k humko isi liye–
Gehrai mai rehne ki adat hai
Wo pakeezgi dhunte hain
Phir humain jhinjorte hain
Lekin humko tau bebaaki mai reh kar–
Karwa zehar peenai ki adat hai
Jo gumnaam shehar abaad thai
Bas wahin tamashe ki adat hai
Khuda ko dekh lia hai humne
Tabhi tau usko yaar kehne ki adat hai
Majbur hogaye thai hum
Tabhi tau zinda ho K bhi,
Marjane ki adat hai
Roza’e ashqui pe jab bhi jana hua
Tau sulagne ki adat hai
Jab sab fanaa hota hai
Tau khush hone ki adat hai
Wo pathar ban gaye thai sab log
Tabhi gharib ko bebasi ki adat hai
Lagaam do, bus bohat hua!
Isi liye qaide aur asoolon ki adat pe
Majbur hone ki adat hai
