Pardesi Naal Na Layie Yaari, Bhanwen Lakh Sonay Da Howay
Ik Gallay Pardesi Changa, Jad Yaad Karay, Tad Roye
Sohneya Oye, Heerya Oye, Teri Yaad Nay Aan Satahaya, Dhahda Phaya

Yaar Jinna Day Door Wasenday Tay Ki Unna Da Jeena
Palk Palk Pardesian Karn, Hanjuan Haar Prohna
Sohniye Ni, Heeriye Ni, Teri Yaad Nay Aan Sataya, Dahda Phaya
