Hindi Song Title: Arey Hai Hai Yeh Majboori
Hindi Movie/Album Name: ROTI KAPDA AUR MAKAN
Singer(s): LATA MANGESHKAR

Hindi Lyrics:

Are hai hai yeh majboorii, yeh mausam aur yeh doori mujhe pal pal hai tadpaaye
Teri do takiyan di naukri te mera lakhon kaa saawan jaaye re
Are hai hai yeh....

Kitne saawan beet gaye, baithi hoon aas lagaaye
Kiss saawan mein mile sajanwa, woh saawan kab aaye kab aaye
Madhur milan kaa yeh saawan hathon se nikla jaaye
O teri do takiyan....

Prem ka aisa bandhan hai jo bandh ke phir naa toote
Are naukari kaa hai kya bharosa, aaj mile kal chhoote, kal choote
Ambar pe hai dhara swayam aur phir bhi too ghabraye
O teri do takiyan.....
