1. Agnipath

“Tu na Thakega Kabhi,

Tu Na Thamega Kabhi,

Tu Na Madega Kabhi

Kar Sapath, Kar Sapath, Kar Sapath,

Agnipath, Agnipath, Agnipath”

2. Madhushala

“Sun KalKal ChalChal Madhughat se Girti Pyalo me Hala,

Sun Runjhun Runjhun Chal Vitran Karti Madhu Saakibala,

Bas Aa Pahuche Door Nahi Kuch Char Kadam Ab Chalna Hai,

Chahak Rahe Sun Peenewala Mehak Rahi Le Madhushala”

3. Bhagwan Ban Jaoge

“Kabhi Phulo Ki Tarah Mat Jeena,

Jis Din Khiloge Tutkar Bikhar Jaoge,

Jeena Hai Toh Pathar Ki Tarah Jio,

Ek Din Taraashe Gaye To,

Bhagwan Ban Jaoge”

4. Ruke Na Tu

“Dhanush Utha, Prahaar Kar,

Tu Sabse Pehla Waar Kar,

Agni Si Dhadak-Dhadak,

Hiran Si Sajag-Sajag

Singh Si Dahaad Kar

Shankh Si Pukaar Kar

Ruke Na Tu, Thake Na Tu,

Jhuke Na Tu, Thame Na Tu”

5. Kya Karu Samvedna Lekar Tumhari

“Main Dukhi Jab- Jab Hua,

Samvedna Tumhe Dikhai,

Main Kritagya Hua Hamesha,

Reet Dono Ne Nibhai,

Kintu Is Aadhar Ka Ab,

HO Chuka Hai Bojh Bhaari,

Kya Karu Samvedna Lekar Tumhaari,

Kya Karu?”

6. Vishwa Sara So Raha Hai

“Hai Vichaarte Swapn Sunder,

Kintu Inka Sang Tajkar,

Vyom-Vyaapi Shoonyata Ka,

Kaun Saathi Ho Raha Hai?

Vishwa Sara So Raha Hai”

7. Teer Par Kaise Ruku

“Teer Par Kaise Ruku Main,

Aaj Lehron Mein Nimantran

Aaj Apne Swapn Ko Main,

Sach Banana Chahta Hu

Door Ki Is Kalpana Ke,

Paas Jana Chahta Hun

Chahta Hu Tair Jaana,

Saamne Ambudhi Pada Jo

Kuch Vibha Uss Paar Ki,

Iss Paar Lana Chahta Hun”

8. Dekho, Toot Raha Hai Taara

“Nabh Ke Seema Heen Patal Par,

Ek Chamakti Rekha Chalkar,

Lupt Shoonya Mein Hoti-

Bujhta Nisha Ka Ek Deep Dulara,

Dekho, Toot Raha Hai Taara”

9. Andheri Raat Me Deepak Jalaye Kaun Baitha Hai

“Uthi Ghata Nabh Mein,

Chipe Sab Chaand Aur Taare

Utha Toofan Who Nabh Mein,

Gayi Bujh Deep Bhi Saare

Magar Is Raat Me Bhi Lau Lagaye Kaun Baitha Hai?

Andheri Raat Me Deepak Jalaye Kaun Baitha Hai”
