Bhojpuri song by Malini Awasthi, Reliya Bairan

रेलिया बैरन पिया को लिये जाय रे, रेलिया बैरन

जौंन टिकस्वा से बलमा मोरे जंइहे, पानी बरसे टिकस गल जाये रे, रेलिया बैरन…

जौंन सहरिया को सैया मोरे जंइहे, आग लग जैहे, सहर जल जाये रे, रेलिया बैरन…

जौन साहेबवा के पिया मोरे नौकर, लग जाये गोली, साहब मर जाये रे, रेलिया बैरन…

जौन सौतनिया पे पिया मोरे रीझे, खाय धतूरा सवत बौराय रे, रेलिया बैरन…

रेलिया बैरन पिया को लिये जाय रे, रेलिया बैरन…

~ संकलन कर्ता - पडित राम त्रिपाठी, उत्तर प्रदेश
