Babul Mora Naihar Chuto Ri Jaye

‘Babul Mora’ is a thumri written by Wajid Ali Shah (last nawab of Awadh) when he was exiled to Metiabruz from Lucknow. Numerous singers have lent their voices to this composition including the legendary Ustad Faiyaz Khan of Agra Gharana.

Lyrics of Babul Mora

Babul Mora, Naihar Chuto Ri Jaye
Babul Mora, Naihar Chuto Jaye
Mora Naihar Chuto Ri Jaye

Chaar Kahaar Miley, Mori Doliyaan Sajaave
Mora Apna Begana Chuto Jaye
Mora Naihar Chuto Hi Jaye

Angana To Parbat Bhaya, Aur Dehari Bhayi Bides
Le Ghar Babul Aapno, Main Chali Piya Ke Des
Babul Mora, Naihar Chuto Jaye
Mora Naihar Chuto Ri Jaye

The following is the video of K.L.Saigal acting and singing in the film Street Singer. He sings Babul Mora in Raag Bhairavi, his personal favourite Raag.
