• Pita Hun Jitni Utni Hi Badhti Hai Tishnagi,<br />
Saqi Ne Jaise Pyaas Mila Di Sharab Mein!
    Pita Hun Jitni Utni Hi Badhti Hai Tishnagi,
    Saqi Ne Jaise Pyaas Mila Di Sharab Mein!
  • Shikan Na Daal Jabin Par Sharab Dete Hue;<br />
Ye Muskurati Hui Cheez Muskura Ke Pila!
    Shikan Na Daal Jabin Par Sharab Dete Hue;
    Ye Muskurati Hui Cheez Muskura Ke Pila!
  • Aaj Pee Lene De Jee Lene De Mujhko Saqi;<br>
Kal Meri Raat Khuda Jaane Kahan Guzregi!
    Aaj Pee Lene De Jee Lene De Mujhko Saqi;
    Kal Meri Raat Khuda Jaane Kahan Guzregi!
    ~ Wasim Barelvi
  • Mehfil-e-Ishq Sajao To Koi Baat Bane;
    Daulat-e-Ishq Lutao To Koi Baat Bane;
    Jaam Haathon Se Nahi Hai Peena Mujhko;
    Kabhi Aankhon Se Pilao To Koi Baat Bane!
  • Main Talakhiye Hyaat Se Ghabra Ke Pee Geya;<br/>
Gham Kee Siyah Raat Se Ghabra Ke Pee Geya;<br/>
Itni Dakik She Koi Kaise Samajh Sake; <br/>
Yazdan Ke Vakiyat Se Ghabra Ke Pee Geya!
    Main Talakhiye Hyaat Se Ghabra Ke Pee Geya;
    Gham Kee Siyah Raat Se Ghabra Ke Pee Geya;
    Itni Dakik She Koi Kaise Samajh Sake;
    Yazdan Ke Vakiyat Se Ghabra Ke Pee Geya!
    ~ Saghar Siddiqui
  • Wo Bhi Din The Jab Hum Bhi Piya Karte The;
    Yun Na Karo Humse Peene Pilane Kee Baat;
    Jitni Tumhare Jaam Mein Hai Sharab;
    Utni Hum Paimaney Mein Chod Diya Karte The!
  • Kuch Bhi Bacha Na Kehne Ko Har Baat Ho Gayi;
    Aao Kahin Sharab Piyein Raat Ho Gayi!
    ~ Nida Fazli
  • Kal Ke Liye Kar Aaj Na Khisat Sharab Mein;
    Yeh Suu-e-Zan Hai, Saqi-e-Kausar Ke Baab Mein!

    Translation:
    Why Parsimony today in the promise of tomorrow's imbibing.
    This surely is an insult to the generosity of heaven's thirst-quencher.
    ~ Mirza Ghalib
  • Kaash Humein Bhi Koi Samjhane Wala Hota;
    To Aaj Hum Itne Nasamjh Na Hote;
    Kaash Koi Ishq Ka Jaam Pilane Wala Hota;
    To Aaj Hum Bhi Is Sharab Ke Deewane Na Hote!
  • Sab Kehte Hain Ki Buri Hai Yeh Sharaab;<br/>
Maine Bhi Maana Ki Yeh Sharaab Nasha Chadati Hai;<br/>
Fir Puchte Hain Sab Mujhse Ki Kyon Peeta Hun Main;<br/>
To Kya Bataun Yaaro Yeh Sharab Hi Hai Jo Unka Gham Bhulati Hai!
    Sab Kehte Hain Ki Buri Hai Yeh Sharaab;
    Maine Bhi Maana Ki Yeh Sharaab Nasha Chadati Hai;
    Fir Puchte Hain Sab Mujhse Ki Kyon Peeta Hun Main;
    To Kya Bataun Yaaro Yeh Sharab Hi Hai Jo Unka Gham Bhulati Hai!
