Ambi de bootte thalle

Ikk boota ambi da,
Ghar saaday lagga ni,
Jiss thalle behna ni,
Surgaan vich rehna ni
Ki ussda kehna ni,
Vehrre da ghehna ni,
Par mahi baajhon ni,
Pardesi baajhon ni,
Eh mainu wadd'da ae,
Te khatta lagda ae.

Iss bootte thalle je,
Main charkhi daahni aan,
Te jee parchaavan lai
Dou tandan paani aan,
Koyal diyan kookan ni,
Maaran bandookan ni,
Peerrhe nu bhannan main,
Charkhi nu phookan ni,

Phir dardi paahbo ton,
Lai bahaan qaseeda je,
Yaadan wich dubbi da,
Dill kidhre jurrh jaye,
Te sui qaseede di,
Potte vich purrh jaye.
Phir uth ke peerrhe ton,
Main bhunjhe beh jaawan,
Cheechi dhar thodi te,
Vehna vich veh jaawan,
Sukhan diyan gharhiyan ni,
Melaan diyan gharhiyan ni,
Kheeran te poorrhe ni,
Saawan diyan jharrhiyan ni
Sohnay de tarle ni,
Te meriyan arrhiyan ni,
Jadd chetay aa jaawan,
Lohrra hi paa jaawan

Oh kiha dihaarrha si,
Oh bhaaggan wala si,
Oh karmaan wala si,
Jiss shubh dihaarrhe ni,
Ghar mera laarra si

Main naahti dhoti ni,
Main vaal vadhaaye ni,
Main kajjla paya ni,
Main ghehnay laye ni,
Mall mall ke khorri main,
Heere lishkaye ni,
Laa laa ke bindiyan main,
Kai phand banaye ni
Kaan haar shingaaran ton,
Main vehli hoi ni,
Aa ambi thallay main,
Phir dhooni chhohi ni

Oh Chann piyara vi,
Aa baitha saahven ni,
Ambi di chaawein ni,
Oh meriyan preetan da,
Sohna vanjhaara ni,
Qissay pardesaan de,
Laaman diyan gallan ni,
Ghumkaar jahaazan di,
Saagar dian challaan ni,
Vairee de hallay ni,
Sohnay diyan thallaan ni,
Oh dassi jaawe te,
Main bharaan hungaara ni

Uss gallan karde nu,
Patteyan di kharrh kharrh ne,
Badlaan di shookar ne,
Wangaan di chann chann ne,
Charkhe di ghookar ne,
Tappeyan di lori ne,
Koyal di kookar ne,
Manjje te paa ditta,
Te ghook sula ditta

Takk sutta mahi ni,
Charkhe di charmakh ton,
Main kaalak laahi ni,
Jaa sutte sohne de,
Mathe te laye ni,
Main khull ke hassi ni,
Main taarhi laai ni,
Main dohri ho gai ni,
Main chauhri ho gai ni,
Oh uth khaloya ni,
Ghabraya hoya ni,
Oh bitt bitt takke ni,
Main khirrh khirrh hassaan ni,
Oh murrh murrh puche ni,
Main gall na dassaan ni.

Takk sheesha charkhi da,
Uss ghoori paai ni,
Main chungi laai ni,
Oh piche bhajja ni,
Main diyan na daahi ni,
Uss maan jawaaani da,
Main hatth zanaani da,
Main agge agge ni,
Oh piche piche ni,
Manjji de girde ni,
Ambi de girdhe ni,
Nassde vi jaiye ni,
Hassde vi jaiye ni,
Ohdi chaadar kharrhke ni,
Meri kothi kharrke ni,
Ohdi jutti cheeke ni,
Meri jhaanjhar channke ni,
Ohdi pagrri dheh pai ni,
Meri chunni leh pai ni,
Jaan haph ke reh gaye ni,
Chupp karke beh gaye ni.

Oh kiha dihaarrha si,
Oh bhaaggan wala si,
Oh karmaan wala si,
Jiss shubh dihaarhe ni,
Ghar mera laarra si

Ajj khaan hawaavan ni,
Ajj saarran chaawan ni,
Tarkhaan sadaavan ni,
Ambi katwaavaN ni,
Toba main bhulli ni,
Haarra main bhulli ni,
Je ambi kattaan gi,
Charrh kissde utte
Raah dholay da takkan gi?
