"बाबुल मोरा, नैहर छूटो ही जाए / बाबुल मोरा, नैहर छूटो ही जाए / चार कहार मिल, मोरी डोलिया सजावें (उठायें) / मोरा अपना बेगाना छूटो जाए | / बाबुल मोरा ... / आँगना तो पर्बत भयो और देहरी भयी बिदेश जाए / बाबुल घर आपनो मैं चली पीया के देश | / बाबुल मोरा ..."
The song was immensely popular at that time, and has remained a popular thumri ever since.
