Sabse uttam woh jo apani na begaani,begaani,
ek aag ek paani, ek prem deewaani
sabse uttam woh jo, apani na begaani begaani, suno suno! suno suno!

Mere desh ki ladki -2 sona nigale nigale heere moti
mere desh ki ladaki.Hoy hoy mere desh ki ladaki.
Arey jisane mujhase pyaar kiya, bas usaka beda gark huwa - (2)
mera nark sa jivan swarg huwa, (tera swarg sa jivan nark huwa -2)
yahaan apna paraaya koyi nahi - (2)
jo haath laga woh saaf huwa - (2)
suno suno! suno suno!

Kal aane ka waada karake, aaj palat nahi aaye,
O jhute o paapi tera satyaanaash ho jaaye.

Tatpunjiyon se na akhiyaan milaana - (2)
tatpunjiyon ka kya hai thikaana
Tatpunjiyon se na akhiyaan milaana - (2)

O o o sach hi kahaan hai khatmal inko - (2)
raat ko kaaten toh chhup jaayen din ko - (2)
chullu bhar paani mein doobke mar jana
tatpunjiyon se na akhiyaan milana - (2)

Jogan ban jaaungi Natthu tore kaaran - (2)
O,Natthu tore kaaran, o fatthu tore kaaran
Jogan ban jaaungi natthu tore kaaran

Tu khota tera pyaar bhi khota,(bependi ka tu hai lota -2)
o thaali ke baingan kaale -(2) ,maar ke dilpar taale,
Main Jhumri Talaiyya Jhumri Talaiyya jaaungi Natthu tore kaaran
o Natthu tore kaaran, o fatthu tore kaaran
jogan ban jaayungi Natthu tore kaaran

Unaki hoon kabhi inaki, teri hoon kabhi iski
Peene mein main tharra hoon, aur dikhne mein main hoon Whisky.
Chal jhoothi.
Abb aage teri marji - (2)
ho more saiyaan o more balama bedardi aage teri marji
aage teri marji phalnava, aage teri marji kisanava aage teri marji

yeh mere pyaar ke ummidwaar baithe hai
kahin shikaar kahin par shikaari baithe hai
shakal pe barah bajaake bimaar baithe hai - (2)
woh maaldaar hai toh yeh udhaar baithe hai
abb aage teri marji - (2)
Ho more saiyaan, O more balma bedardi, aage teri marji!!
