LAKDI KI KAATHI (Masoom)

Lakri ki kathi, kathi pe Ghora,
Ghore ki dum pe jo mara hathora,
Daura, daura, daura Ghora dum uthake daura.

Ghora pahocha chauck mei, chauck mei tha Naai,
Ghore ji-ki Naa-i ne hajamat jo banai,
Daura, daura, daura Ghora dum uthake daura.

Ghora tha Ghamandi, pahocha sabji mandi,
Sabji mandi baraf pari thi,
Baraf mei lag gai thandi,
Daura, daura, daura Ghora dum uthake daura.

Ghora apna tagra hai, dekho kitni charbi hai,
Chalta hai mehruli mei, par ghora apna Arbi hai,
Baag churake daura, daura dum uthake daura,
La-La-La-La-La-La ……. (2)
