Singing Saturday – 7

Hey, I hope you guys had a good week.. The song for this week is an old ghazal.. and its in honor of Father’s Day tomorrow.. My dad is a big fan of Mirza Ghalib and I grew up listening to his ghazals.. So here’s one of the ghazals he really likes.. Its called Har ek baat pe kehte ho tum ki tu kya hai.. I hope you like it!

Har ek baat pe kehte ho tum ke tu kya hai
Har ek baat pe kehte ho tum ke tu kya hai
tumhi kaho ke ye andaaz-e-guftagu kya hai…

Ragon men daudte firne ke hum nahi kaayal
Ragon men daudte firne ke hum nahi kaayal
Jab aankh hi se na tapka to fir lahu kya hai…

Chipak raha hai badan par lahu se pairahan
humari jeb ko ab haajat-e-rafu kya hai…

Jalaa hai jism jahaan dil bhi jal gaya hoga
kuredte ho jo ab raakh, justaju kya hai

Har ek baat pe kehte ho tum ke tu kya hai…

Rahi na taakat-e-guftaar…aur agar ho bhi,
to kis ummeed pe kahiye ke aarzoo kya hai

Har ek baat pe kehte ho tum ke tu kya hai,
Tumhi kaho ki ye andaaz-e-guftagu kya hai…
