Dhukda sooraj shook rahe jungle nu

Shook rahe jungle nu kikan chup karawaan main
Kalle kalle rukh nu jaake ki samjhavan main

Jungle jehrre har mosam de qeher de naal larrda si
Jungle jehrra har aafat de naal larrda si
Jungle jis vichon har koi apni paurri gharrda si
Jungle jehrra baalan bann ke ghar ghar sarrda si

Is vich pheli agg taan kis de zimme lavaan main

Oh jungle jo khoshbwaan da dhova wand'da si
Oh jungle jo phullan de sang har ratt rangda si
Oh jungle jo sir te kulghi konpal tangda si
Mangsa si taan keval apna pani mangda si

Agg di wacharr nu pani kinj banavaan main

Jad jungle ne sheher tere diyan jheelan bhariyan san
Tad jungle ton mehel tere diyan kandhaan dariyaan san
Ton jungle nu kol bitha phir gallaan kariyan san
Kon si jisdiyaan gallan kasotti ton darriyan san

Jo kasottiyon darriyan khariyan kiven mann javaan main

Mannyaan main jungle haan wasda vich jahalat de
Tenu maan bohat ne tark daleel wakalat de
Main jis qabil haan menu ohi zalalat de
Jungle kehnda musalla le chal vich adalat de

Eh vi na manzoor te kehrra dar kharrkaavan main

Teri chup ne junglaan nu oh talkh faza ditti
Jungle vichon kandyaan di ik jharri ugaa ditti
Kande kande keh ke tu phir roli pa ditti
Kujh kandyaan vich kul jungle di gall uljha ditti

Je tu khud uljhauni chahven kinj suljhavaan main

Tenu taan jungle di gall uljhaun vich faida si
Jungle de vich kandde hor ugaaoun vich faida si
Is jungle nu jungle hor banauon vich faida si
Te phir uche charrh ke rola paun vich faida si

Dekho! dekho! ik bhiyanak wann dikhlawaan main

Hor koi jad raah jungle nu raas na aya si
Kujh rukhaan ne jis dehshat da raah apnaya si
Te jisda jungle nu mehna murr murr aya si
Evain tu aape hi is raah nu peer banaya si

Tu kyon ghusse hun jad ohi peer dheyavaan main
Oh shaid is raste nu badlauna chahnde san
Darde san bechare darde hath na paunde san
Oh gall vakhri nirbhata de shabd sikhaunde san

Sabaq ohnaan de ohnaan agge ki duhravaan main

Is mann chahi sakhar te jad tu khel khel pacha ditta
Dehshat taaein saare jungle de sir paa ditta
Adhe jungle nu adhe de naal larra ditta
Phir topaan da maunh jungle vich bawa ditta

Topaan agge kinj aman da geet banavaan main

Bootta bootta es jungle vich ral vi sakda ae
Eh jungle jo dhukda he eh bal vi sakda ae
Balda balda mehlaan val nu chal vi sakda ae
haan shaid eh sabh kujh honon tal vi sakda ae

Epar kithon le aavan ghangoor ghatavaan main

Shook rahe jungle nu kikan chup karavaan main
Kalle kalle rukh nu jaake ki samjhavaan main
