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

Classic gem from Aap ki Parchiyan (1964) by Madan Mohan and Lata, this song is picturized on Dharmendra and Supriya Choudhury.

Lyrics: Raja Mehdi Ali Khan

Agar Mujh Se Muhabbat Hai Mujhe Sab Apane Gam De Do
In Aankhon Kaa Har Ik Aansuu Mujhe Meri Qasam De Do

Tumhaare Gam Ko Apanaa Gam Banaa Luun To Qaraar Aaye
Tumhaaraa Dard Seene Mein Chhupaa Luun To Qaraar Aaye
Vo Har Shay Jo Tumhen Dukh De Mujhe Mere Sanam De Do

Sharik-E-Zindagi Ko Kyuun Sharik-E-Gam Nahin Karte
Dukhon Ko Baat Kar Kyuun In Dukhon Ko Kam Nahin Karte
Tadap Is Dil Ki Thodi Si Mujhe mere Sanam De Do

In aankhon mein na ab mujhko aansoo nazar aaye
Tanahat ki rahe aankhen sada yeh honth muskayen
Mujhe apni sabhi aanhe sabhi dard-e-alam de do

Lyrics: Raja Mehdi Ali Khan

Aap ki nazron ne samjha pyaar ke kaabil mujhe
Dil ki ae dhadkan thaher jaa, mil gayee manzil mujhe

Ji hamein manzoor hai aap ka yeh faisla
Keh rahi hai har nazar banda parvar shukriya
Hanske apni zindagi mein kar liya shaamil mujhe

Aap ki manzil hoon main, meri manzil aap hai
Kyoon main toofaan se daroon, mera saahil aap hai
Koi toofaanon se keh de, mil gaya saahil mujhe

Pad gayee dil par mere aap ki parchhaaiyaan
Har taraf bajne lagee saenkdon shehnaaiyaan
Do jahaan ki aaj khushiyaan ho gayee haasil mujhe
