A Hindi film Song

छुन-छुन[1] करती आई चिड़िया, दाल का दाना लाई चिड़िया

मोर भी आया, कौआ भी आया, चूहा भी आया, बंदर भी आया

छुन-छुन करती आई चिड़िया…….

भूख लगी तो चिड़िया रानी मूँग की दाल पकाएगी, दाल पकाएगी, दाल पकाएगी

कौआ रोटी लाएगा लाके[2] तुझे खिलाएगा

मोर भी आया, कौआ भी आया, चूहा भी आया, बंदर भी आया

छुन-छुन करती आई चिड़िया…….

चलते चलते मिलेगा भालू, हम बोलेंगे नाचो कालू, नाचो कालू, नाचो कालू

मुन्ना ढोल बजाएगा, भालू नाच दिखाएगा

मोर भी आया, कौआ भी आया, चूहा भी आया, बंदर भी आया

साथ हमारे चले बाराती, मैं तो हू मुन्ने के हाथी, मुन्ने के हाथी, मुन्ने के हाथी

सीधा दिल्ली जायूँगा, तेरी दुल्हनिया[3] लायुंगा

मोर भी आया, कौआ भी आया, चूहा भी आया, बंदर भी आया

छुन-छुन करती आई चिड़िया…….
