Ishq ke shole ko bhadakao ke kuch raat kate
dil ke angar ko dahakao ke kuch raat kate

hijr mein milane shab-e-mah ke gham aaye hain
charasazon ko bhi bulavao ke kuch raat kate

koi jalta hi nahin koi pighalta hi nahin
mom ban jaao pighal jao ki kuch raat kate

chashm-o-rukhsar ke azagar ko jari rakho
pyar ke nagme ko doharao ke kuch raat kate

aaj ho jaane do har ek ko bad-mast-o-kharab
aaj ek ek ko pilvao ki kuch raat kate

koh-e-gam aur garan aur garan aur garan
gamza-o-tesh ko chamakao ke kuch raat kate

Translation

Spend some nights exciting the embers of love,
Spend some nights burning the flames of heart,

The grief of separation from beloved has come
Send for a doctor and get done with the night,

One doesn’t burn in flames, one doesn’t melt,
Be a melting candle and get done with the night,

Keep the talk of the hope alive with you,
Writing letters of love, get done with the night,

Have everyone be drunk at heart’s content today,
Make everyone drink, get done with the night,

The mountains of sorrow are crumbling now in full,
Love addicts, sharpen your axes and get done with the night
