Lyrics of  “dekhi zamane ki yaari”

dekhi zamaane ki yaari
bichhade sabhi, bichhade sabhi baari baari
arrey dekhi zamaane ki yaari
bichhade sabhi, bichhade sabhi baari baari

kya le ke milen ab duniya se, aansu ke siva kuch paas nahi
ya phul hi phul the daaman mein, ya kaanton ki bhi aas nahi
matalab ki duniya hai saari
bichhade sabhi, bichhade sabhi baari baari

arrey dekhi zamaane ki yaari
bichhade sabhi, bichhade sabhi baari baari

vaqt hai meharbaan, aarazu hai javaan
fikr kal ki karen, itni fursat kahaan

daur ye chalata rahe, rang uchhalata rahe
roop machalata rahe, jaam badalata rahe

raat bhar mehmaan, hain baharen yahaan
raat gar dhal gayi, phir ye khushiyaan kahaan
pal bhar ki khushiyaan hain saari
badhane lagi badhane lagi beqaraari
are dekhi zamaane ki yaari
bichhade sabhi, bichhade sabhi baari baari

ud ja ud ja pyaase bhanvare, ras na milega khaaron mein
kaagaz ke phool jahaan khilate hain, baith na un gulazaaron mein
naadaan tamanna hai seeney (?),
ik haath se deti hai duniyaa, sau haathon se le leti hai
ye khel hai kab se jaari
hai, bichhade sabhi, bichhade sabhi baari baari
