Tu Ganga Ki Mauj ( Film : Baiju Bawra, Raga : Bhairavi)

Tu ganga ki mauj main jamuna ki dhara

Ho rahega milan,

Ye hamara ho ,ye hamara-tumhara rahega milan

Ye hamara-tumhara.

Agar tu hai saagar to manjhdhar main hoon

Tere dil ki kashti ka patwar main hoon

Chalegi akele na tumse ye naiya

Milegi na manjil tumhe bin khewaiya

Chale aao ji, chale aao ji

Chale aao maujon ka lekar sahara

Ho rahega milan, ye hamara-tumhara.

Bahut Pyar Karte Hain ( Film : Saajan)

Bahut pyar karte hain tumko sanam

Kasam chahe le lo khuda ki kasam

Bahut pyar......

Hamari gajal hai tassavur tumhara

Tumhare bina ab na jeena hamara

Tumhe yu hi chahenge jab tak hai dum

Bahut pyar......

Sagar ki bahon mein maujen hain jitni

Humko bhi tumse muhabbat hai utni

Ki ye bekrari na ab hogi kam

Bahut pyar......
