Tu Cheez Badi Hai Mast-Mast (Film : Mohra)

Tu cheez badi hai mast-mast ,tu chhez badi hai mast

Nahi Tujhko koi hosh-hosh, us par joban ka josh-josh

Nahi tera koi dosh-dosh, madhosh hai tu har waqt-waqt

Tu cheez ....

Aashiq hai tera naam-naam, dil lena tera kaam-kaam

Meri bahen mat tham-tham, badnam hai tu badmast-mast

Tu cheez......

Bol jara tu jane mehboobi,mujhme aisi kya hai khoobi

Tu ik resham ki dor-dor,teri chaal pe aashiq mor-mor

Teri julf ghani chitchor-chor,ghanghor ghata badmast-mast

Tu cheez.....
