Chahiye Achchhon Ko Jitna Chahiye

chahiye achchhon ko jitna chahiye

ye agar chahen to phir kya chahiye

love beauties to your full relish

if they love back what else to wish

sohbat-e-rindan se vajib hai hazar

ja-e-mai apne ko khincha chahiye

the company of drunks eschew

in bars let wine not near you

chahne ko tere kya samjha tha dil

baare ab is se bhi samjha chahiye

it thought was easy loving you

this with my heart I must pursue

chaak mat kar jaib be-ayyam-e-gul

kuchh udhar ka bhi ishara chahiye

rend not your clothes till spring is here

a signal from there should appear

dosti ka parda hai beganagi

munh chhupana ham se chhoda chahiye

for love, indifference is a guise

stop hiding from me I’d advise

dushmani ne meri khoya ghair ko

kis qadar dushman hai dekha chahiye

it cost him all, my enmity

behold my foe’s hostility

apni rusvai men kya chalti hai sai

yaar hi hangama-ara chahiye

in vain efforts at self-disgrace

do need a stormy sweetheart’s face

munhasir marne pe ho jis ki umiid

na-umidi us ki dekha chahiye

whose hopes depend on death merely

his despondency you should see

ghafil in mah-talaton ke vaste

chahne vaala bhi achchha chahiye

you seek these beauties company

the mirror first you need to see

chahte hain khub-ruyon ko ‘asad’

aap ki surat to dekha chahiye

these moon-faced beauties, be aware

seek lovers good-looking and fair
