The lyrics are as follows:


Mahendra Kapoor:


Bahut din huye taaron ke desh mein

Chanda ki nagariya mein rahte they ik raja
Baj rahaa thaa door door unkee jay kaa baja
Jaise they partapi raja vaise unki rani
Jaisa roop rang paya vaisi gyani dhyani
Dono ki dulari ik bitiya thi pyari
Phool jaisi naazuk thi vo naam thaa phool kumari

Andhi taqdeer ne andher kiya bhaari

Chheenee uskey hothon se hansi vo pyari pyari
Phool kumari bhool gayee hansna muskurana
Loot liya bhagya ne khushi ka vo khazana

Magar ye kaun, Ye kaisi awaz ?


Manna Dey :

Leke dil kaa saaz hum geet gaane aa gaye
Hey, khil ke kaliyon ne kahaa din suhaane aa gaye

Gham ke baadal hat gaye khul gayaa neelaa gagan

Har kali ko pyaar se chhoo gayee suraj kiran
Muskuraa lo jhoom lo vo zamaane aa gaye
Leke dil kaa saaz hum geet gane aa gaye

Lata Mangeshkar:


Samaa albela din hain milan ke

Preet leke aaye dekho meet mere man ke

Piya-piya gaye jiya nache man mora

Meri unaki jodi jaise chand aur chakora
Nainon mein chhupaye phirun sapne saajan ke
Sama alabela 

Jinhe maine dil diya vo bhi rahe mere

Man mein manaun main saanjh aur savere 
Jeete jee na tootenge ye badhan jeevan ke
Sama alabela 

Mahendra Kapoor :

Jaise unkey achhey din phir se laut aaye
Maalik aisey sabaki suney sabake din lautaaye.
