Film: Lagaan
Song: Radha kaise na jale
Music Director: AR Rahman

Madhuban me jo kanhaiya kisee gopi se mile
kabhee muskaye, kabhee chhede, kabhee bat kare
radha kaise naa jale, radha kaise naa jale
aag tan mann me lage, (radha kaise naa jale -2)

madhuban me bhale kanha kisee gopi se mile
mann me toh radha ke hee prem ke hain phul khile
kis liye radha jale, kis liye radha jale
bina soche samjhe, (kis liye radha jale -2)

(o, gopiya tare hain, chand hai radha
phir kyun hai usako biswas aadha) - (2)
kanhaji kaa jo sada idhar udhar dhyan rahe
radha bechari ko phir apane pe kya maan rahe
gopiya aani jani hain, radha toh mann kee rani hai - (2)
sanjh sakhare jamna kinare, radha radha hee kanha pukare
oye hoye, oye hoye
baaho ke har jo dale koee kanha ke gale
radha kaise naa jale, radha kaise naa jale
aag tan mann me lage, (radha kaise naa jale -2)

mann me hai radhe ko kanha jo basaye
toh kanha kahe ko usse naa bataye
prem kee apanee alag boli, alag bhasa hai
bat nainon se ho kanha kee yahi aasa hai
kanha ke yeh jo naina hain, chhine gopiyo ke chaina hain - (2)
milee najariya hui bawariya, goree goree see koee gujariya
kanha kaa pyar kisee gopi ke mann me jo pale
kis liye radha jale, radha jale, radha jale
radha kaise naa jale, kis liye radha jale
radha kaise naa jale, (kis liye radha jale -2)
radha kaise naa jale, (kis liye radha jale -2)
aah, aah, aah, aah............
radha kaise naa jale - (3)

Film: Papa Kehte Hain
Song: Ghar se nikalte hi
Music Director: Rajesh Roshan

Ghar Se Nikalte Hi, Kuch Door Chalte Hi
raste Main Hai Uska Ghar, Kal Subah Dekha To
baal Banati Vo, Khidki Main Aayi Nazar -2
ghar Se Nikalte Hi ..

masoom Chegra, Neechi Nigahain
bholi Se Ladki, Bholi Aadayan
ja Apsara Hai, Na Vo Pari Hai
lekin Yeh Uski, Jadoogari Hai
deewana Kar De Vo, Ik Rang Bhar De Vo
sharma Ke Dekhe Jidhar.
ghar Se Nikalte Hi...

karta Hoon Uske, Ghar Ke Main Phere
hansne Lage Hain, Ab Dost Mere
sach Kah Raha Hoon, Uski Ki Kasam Hai
main Phir Bhi Khush Hoon, Bus Ek Gam Hai
jisse Pyaar Karta Hoon, Main Jispe Marta Hoon
usko Nahi Hai Khabar.
ghar Se Nikalte Hi...

ladki Hai Jaise, Koi Paheli
kal Jo Mili Mujhko, Uski Saheli
maine Kaha Usko, Jake Yeh Kahna
achha Nahi Hai, Yoon Door Rahna
kal Shaam Nikle Vo, Ghar Se Tahelne Ko
milna Jo Chahe Agar.
ghar Se Nikalte Hi ...

Film: Border
Song: Sandese aate hain
Music Director: Anu Malik

Sandese aate hain, hame tadpate hain
toh chitthee aati hai, toh puchhe jati hai
ke ghar kab aaoge, ke ghar kab aaoge
likho kab aaoge, kee tum bin yeh ghar suna suna hai - (2)

kisi dilwali ne, kisi matwali ne
hame khat likkha hai, kee hamse puchha hai
kisi kee sanso ne, kisi kee dhadkan ne
kisi kee chudi ne, kisi ke kangan ne
kisi ke kajre ne, kisi ke gajre ne
mahekti subaho ne, machalti shamo, ne
akeli rato ne, adhuri bato ne
tarasti baho ne, aur puchha hai tarsi nighaho ne
ke ghar kab aaoge, ke ghar kab aaoge
likho kab aaoge, kee tum bin yeh dil suna suna hai

sandese aate hain, hame tadpate hain
toh chitthee aati hai, toh puchhe jati hai
ke ghar kab aaoge, ke ghar kab aaoge
likho kab aaoge, kee tum bin yeh ghar suna suna hai

mohabbatwalo ne, hamare yaro ne
hame yeh likkha hai, ke hamse puchha hai
hamare gao ne, aam kee chaanvo ne
purane pipal ne, baraste badal ne
khet khaliayano ne, hare maidano ne
basanti belo ne, jhumti belo ne
lachakte jhulo ne, behekte phulo ne
chatakti kaliyo ne, aur puchha hain gao kee galiyo ne
ke ghar kab aaoge, ke ghar kab aaoge
likho kab aaoge, kee tum bin gaon suna suna hai

sandese aate hain, hame tadpate hain
toh chitthee aati hai, toh puchhe jati hai
ke ghar kab aaoge, ke ghar kab aaoge
likho kab aaoge, kee tum bin yeh ghar suna suna hai

oh oh oh.............

kabhee ek mamta kee, pyar kee ganga kee
woh chitthee aati hai, sath woh lati hai
mere din bachpan ke, khel woh aangan ke
woh saya aanchal kaa, woh tika kajal kaa
woh lori rato me woh narmi hatho me
woh chahat aankho me woh chinta bato me
bigadna upar se mohabbat andar se
kare woh devi ma, yahi har khat me puchhe meree ma
ke ghar kab aaoge, ke ghar kab aaoge
likho kab aaoge, kee tum bin aangan suna suna hai

sandese aate hain, hame tadpate hain
toh chitthee aati hai, toh puchhe jati hai
ke ghar kab aaoge, ke ghar kab aaoge
likho kab aaoge, kee tum bin yeh ghar suna suna hai

oh oh ho.........
ai gujrane wali hawa bata, mera itna kam karegi kya
mere ganv jaa mere dosto mo salam de
meree ganv me hai jo woh gali, jahan rehti hai meree dilruba
use mere pyar kaa jam de - (2)
wahi thodee dur hai ghar mera, mera ghar me hai meree budhi ma
mere ma ke pairo ko chhuke, use usake bete kaa nam de
ai gujrane wali hawa jara, mere dosto, meree dilruba
meree maa ko mera paiyam de, unhe jake tu yeh paigam de

mai wapas aaunga, mai wapas aaunga
phir apne gao me, usiki chao me
kee ma ke aanchal se, ganv ke pipal se
kisike kajal se, kiya jo wada tha woh nibhaunga
mai ek din aaoonga - (8)

Film: Refugee
Song: Panchi nadiya
Music Director: Anu Malik

Uparwaale ne apne mohabbat ke sadke mein
hum sab ke liye yeh dharati banaayi thi
par mohabbat ke dushmano ne, isapar lakeere khichkar sarhade bana di
main jaanata hoon, woh log tumhe iss paar nahi aane denge
magar yeh pawan jo tumhaare yaha se hokar aayi hai
tumhe chhukar aayi hogi
main ise saans banaakar apne sine mein bhar lunga
yeh nadiya jispar jhukkar tum paani kiya karte ho
main isake paani se apne pyaase honto ko bhigon lungi
samjhungi tumhaare honton ko chhu liya

panchhi nadiya pawan ke jhonke, koi sarhad na inhe roke - (2)
sarhad insano ke liye hain, socho tumne aur maine kya paya insan hoke
panchhi nadiya pawan ke jhonke, koi sarhad na inhe roke
sarhad insano ke liye hain, socho tumne aur maine kya paya insan hoke

jo hum dono panchchhi hote, tairte hum is neel gagan mein pankh pasare
saari dharti apni hoti, apne hote saare najare
khuli fizao mein udate -2 apane dilo mein hum saara pyar samaake
panchhi nadiya pawan ke jhonke, koi sarhad na inhe roke
sarhad insano ke liye hain, socho tumne aur maine kya paya insan hoke

jo main hoti nadiya aur tum pawan ke jhonke to kya hota - (2)
pawan ke jhonke nadi ke tan ko jab chhute hain - (2)
lehare hi lehare banti hain, hum dono jo milte to kuch aisa hota
sab kehte ye lehar lehar jaha bhi jaaye inko na koi toke
panchhi nadiya pawan ke jhonke, koi sarhad na inhe roke
sarhad insano ke liye hain, socho tumne aur maine kya paya insan hoke
panchhi nadiya pawan ke jhonke, koi sarhad na inhe roke...

Har ghadee badal rahee hai rup jindagee
chhanv hai kahee, kahee hai dhup jindagee
har pal yaha jee bhar jiyo, jo hai sama kal ho naa ho) - (2)

chahe jo tumhe pure dil se, milata hai woh mushkil se
aisa jo koyee kahee hai, bas vahee sabse hasin hai
uss hath ko tum tham lo, woh meherban kal ho naa ho
har pal yaha jee bhar jiyo, jo hai sama kal ho naa ho

lakh sambhalo pagal dil ko, dil dhadke hee jaye
par soch lo iss pal hai jo, woh dastaan kal ho naa ho
har pal yaha jee bhar jiyo, jo hai sama kal ho naa ho - (2)
