Mukriyaan
raat samay vah mere aave. bhor bhaye vah ghar uThi jaave..
yah acharaj hai sabase nyaaraa. ai sakhi saajan? naa sakhi taaraa..

nange paa(n)v phiran nahin det. paa(n)v se miTTee lagan nahin det..
paa(n)v kaa choomaa let nipootaa. ai sakhi saajan? naa sakhi jootaa..

vah aave tab shaadee hoy. us bin doojaa aur n koy..
meeThe laagen vaake bol. ai sakhi saajan? naa sakhi Dhol..

jab maa(n)goo tab jal bhari laave. mere man kee tapan bujhaave..
man kaa bhaaree tan kaa chhoTaa. ai sakhi saajan? naa sakhi loTaa..

ber-ber sovatahin jagaave. naa jaagoo(n) to kaaTe khaave..
vyaakul huee main hakkee bakkee. ai sakhi saajan? naa sakhi makkhee..

ati surang hai rang rangeelo. hai guNavant bahut chaTakeelo..
raam bhajan bin kabhee n sotaa. kyon sakhi saajan? naa sakhi totaa..

ardh nishaa vah aayaa bhaun. sundarataa barane kavi kaun..
nirakhat hee man bhayo anand. kyon sakhi saajan? naa sakhi chand..

shobhaa sadaa baḌhaavan haaraa. aa(n)khin se chhin hot n nyaaraa..
aaTh pahar mero manaranjan. kyon sakhi saajan? naa sakhi anjan..

jeevan sab jag jaason kahai. vaa binu nek n dheeraj rahai..
harai chhinak men hiy kee peer. kyon sakhi saajan? naa sakhi neer..

bin aaye sabaheen sukh bhoole. aaye te a(n)g-a(n)g sab phoole..
seeree bhaee lagaavat chhaatee. kyon sakhi saajan? naa sakhi paati..

aur aatee-jaatee laḌakiyaa(n)
