This gem is from another movie Woh Kaun Thi (1964) directed by Raj Khosla, featuring Manoj Kumar and Sadhana.  Music is by Madan Mohan and the lyrics have been penned by Raja Mehdi Ali Khan . Sung by the Nightingale of India – Lata Mangeshkar.

Lyrics:

Lag jaa gale ke fir ye haseen raat ho na ho
Shaayad fir is janam mein mulaqaat ho na ho

Hum ko milee hain aaj ye ghadiyaan naseeb se
Jee bhar ke dekh lijiye  humko kareeb se
Fir aap ke naseeb mein ye baat ho na ho
Shaayad fir is janam mein mulaqaat ho na ho

Paas aiye ke hum nahin aayenge baar baar
Bahein gale mein daal ke, hum ro le jaar jaar
Aakhon se fir ye pyaar ki barsaat ho na ho
Shaayad fir is janam mein mulaqaat ho na ho

Teri aankhon ke siva duniya mein rakha kya hai- Chirag (1969)

Today I’ll present two evergreen songs created by the legendary Madan Mohan.

This gem is from the movie Chirag (1969) directed by Raj Khosla, featuring Sunil Dutt and Asha Parekh. The song has been sung for the most part by Mohd. Rafi and also by Lata Mangeshkar.

Lyrics penned by Majrooh Sultanpuri.

Teri aankhon ke siva duniya mein rakha kya hai

Ye uthe subah chale Ye jhunke shaam dhale
Mera jeena mera marna inhi palkon ke tale

Palkon ki galiyon mein chehre baharon ke haste huye
Ae mere khwabon ke kya kya nagar is mein baste huye

In mein mere aanewale zamane ki tasveer hai
Chahat ke kajal se lkhi huyi meri taqdeer hai

Main hoon kahin inka saya mere dil se jata nahi
Inke siva ab to kuchh bhi nazar mujhko aata nahi
