Lyrics :-

tere nainon ne chori kiyaa
meraa chhotaa sa jiyaa
paradesiyaa
haay tere nainon ne

jaane kaisaa jaadu kiyaa,
teri meethi meethi baat ne
teraa meraa pyaar huaa,
pahli mulaaqaat mein
jaane kaisaa jaadu kiyaa,

pahli mulaaqaat mein
haay tere nainon ne
tere nainon ne chori kiyaa,

haathon mein haath leke,
kabhi bhi naa chhodnaa
pyaar ki ye dor sainyya,
baandh ke naa todnaa
haathon mein haath leke,
kabhi bhi naa chhodnaa
pyaar ki ye dor sainyya,
baandh ke naa todnaa
baandh ke naa todnaa
haay tere nainon ne
tere nainon ne chori kiyaa,
meraa chhotaa sa jiyaa
paradesiyaa
haay tere nainon ne
tere nainon ne chori kiyaa,
meraa chhotaa sa jiyaa
paradesiyaa
haay tere nainon ne
tere nainon ne chori kiyaa..

Suraiyya's voice is magical, and so is the case with the music of Husnlal Bhagatram. And let us not forget the lyrics of Rajinder Krishan. Rajinder Krishan has written lots and lots of songs that have gone on to become timeless and iconic songs. This song is very much a timeless and iconic song.

Suraiya Jamaal Sheikh (15 June 1929 - 31 January 2004) was a singer and actress of the Indian films in the 40s and 50s, and was popularly known by her first name Suraiya.
Suraiya was the only singing star who decided to stay back in India after Partition, while Noor Jehan and Khurshid left for Pakistan. No wonder, her rise to fame between 1947-50 was indeed meteoric. Though the playback system had entered the scene, Suraiya with her distinct individual style, her sweet seasoned voice and direct simple diction succeeded in captivating the listeners and her popularity knew no bounds. Her biggest box office hits in quick succession were Pyar kee jeet (1948), Badi Behan (1949) and Dillagi (1949).

We can still hear old music fans humming those eternal melodies from these films like Oh door janewale, Woh pas rahen, ya door rahen, Tere nainon ne chori kiya, and Tu mera chand main teri chandani. It was this hat-trick during 1948-49 that launched Suraiya to the top. A refined person with a unique personality, professionally there was dignity and grace in her performance. She sang with her heart and soul and became the highest-paid star.

Suraiya did make a short-lived comeback in Mirza Ghalib produced by Sohrab Modi in 1954. Its stunning success brought fresh laurels to Suraiya especially since she had bagged this role when other top beautiful stars of those days like Madhubala and Nargis could not make it. It was not only her superb acting in the role of a professional singing girl as Ghalib's lover but her lively and enchanting rendering of the poet's famous verses that won her fame. It was the first feature film to be awarded the President's Medal and the then Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru had graced the function. Nehru is said to have told Suraiya that Tumne Mirza Ghalib ki rooh ko zinda kar diya (you have brought Mirza Ghalib to life). No doubt, Suraiya showed her mastery over marrying music to poetry and immortalised Ghalib's ghazals viz. Ye na thi hamari kismat, A ah ko chahiye and Dil-e-nadaan tujhe hua kya hai.

In the early 1960s, while still in her prime, Suraiya called it a day and retired from the film world. Unlike Noor Jehan who turned a play-back singer in Pakistan around the same time, Suraiya gave up singing altogether and ignored many tempting offers. So much so that she declined to sing even at private functions. The most-publicised episode of Suraiya's life was her romance with the upcoming young actor Dev Anand in the 1950s. It was then the 'talk of the town', the stuff legends are made of. She was Dev's heroine in six films which brought accolades to both of them. Under the pressure of her family, Suraiya had to turn down Dev's marriage proposal and chose to remain single. She preferred solitude and died a lonely woman on January 31, 2004.
