Sarfaroshi ki tamanna ab hamaare dil mein hai
Dekhna hai zor kitna baazu-e-qaatil mein hai

Karta nahin kyun doosra kuch baat-cheet
Dekhta hun main jise woh chup teri mehfil mein hai

Rahbar rahe mohabbat rah na jana rah mein
lazzat-e-sehra navdari dooriyein-manzil mein hai

Yun khadaa maqtal mein qaatil kah rahaa hai baar baar
Kya tamannaa-e-shahaadat bhi kisee ke dil mein hai

Aye shaheed-e-mulk-o-millat main tere upar nisaar
Ab teri himmat ka charcha ghair ki mehfil mein hai

Sarfaroshi ki tamanna ab hamaare dil mein hai
Dekhna hai zor kitna baazu-e-qaatil mein hai

Waqt aanay de bata denge tujhe aye aasman
Hum abhi se kya batayen kya hamare dil mein hai

Kheinch kar layee hai sab ko qatl hone ki ummeed
Aashiqon ka jumghat aaj koocha-e-qaatil mein hai

Sarfaroshi ki tamanna ab hamaare dil mein hai
Dekhna hai zor kitna baazu-e-qaatil mein hai
