Madiralaya jane ko ghar se

Chalta hai peene wala

Kis path se jaun?

Asmanjas mein hai who bhola-bhaala

Alag-alag path batlaate sab,

Par main yah batlaata hun-

Raah pakad tu ek chala chal,

Paa jayega madhushala

Ruke Na Tu

Dhanush utha, prahaar kar

Tu sabse pehla vaar kar

Agni si dhadhak-dhadhak

Hiran si sajag-sajag

Singh si dahaad kar

Shankh si pukaar kar

Ruke na tu, thake na tu

Jhuke na tu, thame na tu

Kya Karu Samveda Lekar Tumhari

Main dukhi jab-jab hua

Samvedna tumne dikhai

Main kritagya hua hamesha

Reet dono ne nibhai

Kintu iss abhaar ka ab

Ho chuka hai bojh bhaari

Kya karu samvedna lekar tumhari

Kya karu?


Tu na thakega kabhi,

Tu na thamega kabhi,

Tu na mudega kabhi,

Kar shapath, kar shapath, kar shapath,

Agneepath, agneepath, agneepath
