Ittefaq ki baat hai yaaron
Woh bin bole hi keh gaye
Alvida keh diya unhone
Aur hum maikhaane chale gaye..

Naukri ka thikaana na tha
Berozgaar hu reh gaye
Jaa na paye hum kahin or
Aur hum maikhane chale gaye..

Jhoothi tasalli jhoothe armaan
Woh jhooth viraasat mein de gaye
Hum kuch na kar paye yaaro
Aru hum maikhaane chale gaye..

Vaadon aur kasmo ka andaazaa kahaan
Doobte suraj ke saath woh bhi dhal gaye
Musaafir ban baithe zindagi bhar ke liye
Aur hum maikhaane chale gaye..

Kaisi dosti kaisa pyaar?
Sab apne hi chale gaye
Begaano ko talaashte kahaan
Aur hum maikhaane chale gaye..

Sharaab ke pyaale mein chuur hue
Fir bhi hosh naa uda sake
Socha behoshi ko dhundte kahaan
Aur hum maikhaane chale gaye..

Haath thaamaa tha zindagi ne
Rangeen dhokha diye chale gaye
Maut ki khoj karte kahaan
Aur hum maikhaane chale gaye..

Jab kafan naa mila udhaar par
Kabrastaan mein yun hi let gaye
Par laashon ne apnaayaa nahi
Aur hum maikhaane chale gaye..
