Yeh duniya, yeh mehfil

Heer Ranjha, 1970 (Madan Mohan)

Kaifi Azmi wrote an entire film Heer Ranjha (including villain Pran's snide remarks) in engaging verse. Rafi's "Yeh duniya yeh mehfil" is a perennial favourite (In fact, I heard this song 6 times last night, when returning from work and that is what made me blog it!)

I could not find full lyrics, so I request you to paste those in the comments section please.

Yeh duniyaan, yeh mehfil mere kaam kee naheen
Kis ko sunaaoo haal dila-ye-bekaraar ka
Buztaa hua charaag hoo apane majaar ka
aye kaash bhool jaaoo, magar bhoolata nahee
kis dhoom se uthhaa thaa, janaajaa bahaar kaa
apanaa pataa mile, naa khabar yaar kee mile
dushman ko bhee naa aisi sazaa pyaar kee mile
unako khudaa mile hain khudaa kee jinhe talaash
muz ko bas yek zalak mere diladaar kee mile
saharaa mein aake bhee, muz ko thhikaanaa naa milaa
gam ko bhoolaane kaa, koee bahaanaa naa mila
dil tarase jis mein pyaar ko, kyaa samazoo us sansaar ko
ek jeetee baajee haar ke, main dhoondhoo bichhade yaar ko
door nigaahon se aansoo bahaataa hain koi
kaise naa jaaoo mai, muz ko bulaataa hain koi
yaa toote dil ko jod do, yaa saare bandhan tod doa
ye parabat rastaa de muze, aye kaanton daaman chhod do
