Itna To Karna Swami

Singer- Anup Jalota

Itna to Karna Swami, Jab Praan tan se nikle

Govinda Naam leke, Tab pran tan se nikle,
Shri Gangaji the tat ho, Jamuna Ka vanshivat ho,
mera sawla nikat ho, jab pran tan se Nikle

Pitambari kasi ho, Chabi maan main yeh basi ho,
Hotho pe kuch hasi ho, jab pran tan se nikle

Jab kanth pran aye, koi rog na sataye
Yam darash na dikhaye, Jab pran tan se nikle

us vakt jaldi ana, nahi Shyam Bhul Jana,
Radhe ko saath lana, jab pran tan se nikle,

ek bhakt ki hai arji, khud garj ki hai garji
aage Tumhari marji jab pran tan se Nikle
Itna to karna Sai, Jab pran tan se Nikle
