Lyrics: Amir Khusro (Traditional Sufi song)
Artist: Vocals by Arunima, Music Production by Aditya

Chhap tilak sab cheeni ray mosay naina milaikay
Chhap tilak sab cheeni ray mosay naina milaikay

Prem bhatee ka madhva pilaikay
Matvali kar leeni ray mosay naina milaikay

Gori gori baiyyan, hari hari churiyan
Baiyyan pakad dhar leeni ray mosay naina milaikay

Bal bal jaaun maen toray rang rajwa
Apni see kar leeni ray mosay naina milaikay

Khusro Nijaam kay bal bal jaiye
Mohay Suhaagan keeni ray mosay naina milaikay

Chhap tilak sab cheeni ray mosay naina milaikay

English Translation of the lyrics:
You’ve taken away my looks, my identity, by just a glance.
By making me drink the wine of love-potion,
You’ve intoxicated me by just a glance;
My fair, delicate wrists with green bangles in them,
Have been held tightly by you with just a glance.
I give my life to you, Oh my cloth-dyer,
You’ve dyed me in yourself, by just a glance.
I give my whole life to you Oh, Nijam,
You’ve made me your bride, by just a glance.
