Lyrics of Jhoom
“Mein ne tujhe dekha
hanstay huay gaalon mein;
be zar khayaalaon mein
husn ke hawaalon mein;
Sohni ke baalon mein
morni ki chalon mein;
matti ke pyaalon mein
peetal ke thaalon mein;
jitni tu milti jaaye
utni lagay thoree thoree,
jab bhee tu lay angrayi
aa ke mere oori,
to dil Jhoom Jhoom chale
Jhoom Jhoom chale.
