Jingo Bells, Jingo Bells

Saugandh mujhe is mitti ki
Mein desh nahin mitne doonga
Mein desh nahin mitne doonga
Mein desh nahin jhukne doonga

Saugandh mujhe is mitti ki
Meri dharti mujhse poochh rahi
Kab mera karj chukaoge
Mera ambar mujhse poochh raha
Kab mera farj nibhaoge
Mera vachan hai Bharat ma ki
Tera shish nahi jhukne doonga

Woh loot rahe hain sapno ko
Mein chain se kaise so jaaun
Woh bech rahe hain Bharat ko
Khamosh mein kaise ho jaaun

Woh chaahte hai jaage naa koi
Bas raat kaa kaarobar chale
Woh nasha baantte jaaye
Aur desh yoonhi bimaar chale
Par jaag rahaa hai desh mera
Har Bharatvasi jitega

Ab ghadi faisle ki aayi,
Hamne hai kasam ab khaayi,
Hamein FIR se dohraanaa hai
Aur khud ko yaad dilaanaa hai
Naa bhatkenge, na atkenge
Kuchh bhi ho is baar
Hum desh nahi mitne denge
