Apne Yahi Dono Jaha,
Iske Siva Jana Kaha,
Jeena Yaha Marna Yaha, Iske Siva Jaana Kaha

Ye Mera Geet Jeevan Sangeet,
Kal Bhi Koi Dohrayega,
Jag Ko Hasane Bahrupiya,
Roop Badal Phir Aayega,
Swarg Yahi Nark Yaha,
Iske Siva Jana Kaha,
Jeena Yaha Marna Yaha, Iske Siva Jaana Kaha

Kal Khel Mai Hum Ho Na Ho,
Gardish Mai Taare Rahenge Sada,
Bhoolenge Hum Bhoologe Tum,
Par Hum Tumhare Rahenge Sada,
Rahenge Yahi Apne Nisha,
Iske Siva Jana Kaha,
Jeena Yaha Marna Yaha, Iske Siva Jaana Kaha.

As he said ‘Jag Ko Hasane Bahrupiya, Roop Badal Phir Aayega’, We truly wish Raj Kapoor to come back and spread his magic once again,
