Strum Pattern:
Time Signature: 4/4

Option 1: Strumming - |DUDU| or |D(UD)(DU)(DD)|
(Explanation - 4 beats per meter; the stroke that is marked with a (') is played and muted (D' here); the beats in brackets are divided into subunits of equal duration as noted).

Option 2: Play single down-strokes on each accentuation of a steadily repeated sequence of down strokes.

Playings Tips and Song Notes:
Between the meter chord changes do not occur in this song. Most lines of the lyric span beyond on bar (meter). The chords are basic level and vary little - this is because the song is a piece based in part on Indian classical music, that is famous for its drones.

This is Mahadevan's signature song. One that launched him onto the big league. Exceptional singer.

Try singing along or playing along with the track to best guess the strum and chord positions.

Plain Lyrics:
Koi jo mila to mujhe, aisa lagta tha jaise,
Meri saari duniya main, geetoon ki rut aur,
Rangoon ki barkha hai, khushboo ki aandhi hai.
Mahki hui si ab saari fizaayein hain;
Behki hui si ab saari hawaayein hain;
Khoyi hui si ab saari dishaayein hain;
Badli hui se ab saari adaayein hain.

Jaagi umangein hain, dhadak raha ahi dil.
Saanson main toofaan hain, hoton pe naghme hain,
Aakhon main sapne hain. Sapnon main beete hue
Saare woh saare lamhe hain -

Jab koi aaya tha, nazroon pe chhaya tha,
Dil main samayaa tha. Kaise main bataoon tumhe,
Kaisa use paaya tha. Pyaar se chehre pe,
Bikhri jo zulfien to aisa lagta tha jaise,
Kohore ke pechhe ek oons main dhula hua phool khila hai.

Jaise badal main ik chaand chhupa hai,
Aur jhaank raha hai; jaise raat ke parde main ek savera hai,
Raushan-raushan; aankhon main sapnon ka saagar,
Jis mein prem sitaroon ki chaadar, jaise jhalak rahi hai.
Lahroon-lahroon baat karein to, jaise moti barse.

Jaise kahin chaandi ki payal goonje;
Jaise kahin sheeshey main jaam gire, aur chhann se tootey.
Jaise koi chhip ke sitaar bajaye;
Jaise koi chaandni raat main gaye;
Jaise koi haule se paas bulaaye.

Kaisi meethi baatain the woh, 
Kaisi mulakaatein thi woh,
Jab maine jaana tha,
Nazroon se kaise pighalta hai dil, aur
Aarzoo paati hai kaise manzil,
Aur kaise utarta hai chaand zameen par.
Kaise kabhi lagta hai swarg agar hai to bas hai yahin par.

Usne bulaya mujhe, aur samjhaya mujhe -
Hum jo mile hain, hamein aise hi milna tha;
Gul jo khile hain, unhe aise hi khilna tha.
Janmon ke bandhan, janmon ke rishtey hain.
Jab bhi hum janme to, hum younhi milte hain.

Kaanon main mere jaise shahed sa ghulne lage.
Khwaaboon ke dar jaise aakhoon main khulne lage.
Khwaabon ki duniya bhi kitni haseen aur kaisi rangeen thi!
Khwaabon ki duniya, jo kahne ko thi, par kahin bhi nahi thi!
Khwaab jo toote mere, aakh jo khuli meri,
Hosh jo aaya mujhe, maine dekha maine jaana,
Woh jo kabhi aaya tha, nazroon pe chhaya tha, dil main samaya tha -
Ja bhi chuka hai aur dil mera hai ab, tanha tanha.
Na to koi armaan hai, na koi tamanna hai, aur na koi sapna hai.

Ab jo mere din aur ab jo meri ratain hain,
Unmein sirf aansoon hain, unmein seif dard ki,
Ranj ki batain hain, aur fariyaadein hain. Mera ab bhi koi nahi -
Main hoon aur khoye hue pyaar ki yaadein hain.
Main hoon aur khoye hue pyaar ki yaadein hain
Main hoon aur khoye hue pyaar ki yaadein hain
