Oh yaaron, yeh India bulaa liya
Diwaano yeh India bulaa liya… bulaa liya

Yeh toh khel hai
Bada mail hai
Milaa diya… milaa diya

Yeh toh khel hai
Bada mail hai
Milaa diya

Oh rukna rukna rukna rukna rukna nahi
Haarna haarna haarna haarna haarna nahi
Junoon se kanoon se maidaan maar lo

Let's go
Let's go

Play o jiyo heyo let's go
Play o jiyo heyo let's go

Oh yaaron, yeh India bulaa liya
Diwaano yeh India bulaa liya… bulaa liya

Parvat sa ucha uthoon toh yeh
Duniya salami de

Sardil iraade na ho jayein kahin
Dil ko woh suraj de

Jiyo utho badho jeeto
Tera mera jahaan let's go

Kaisi saji hai saji hai dekho maati apni
Bani rashke jahaan yaara ho
Kai rang hai boli hai kai desh hai magar
yahi jag hai samaaya saara ho

Laagi re ab laagi re lagan
Jaagi re mann jeet ki agan
Uthi re ab iraadon mein tapan
Chali re gori chali ban than

Play o jiyo heyo let's go

Kadmon mein ek bhanwar ka hai din
Jashn ka aaj din hai
Seenon mein Toofaan ka hai din
Baazu aazmaa yeh din hai
Yeh din hai
Tera din hai
Tu zor laga, chal aankh milaa
Kal na aaye din yeh

Jiyo utho badho jeeto
Play o jiyo heyo let's go
Jiyo utho badho jeeto
Tera mera jahaan let's go
Jiyo utho badho jeeto
Tera mera jahaan let's go
