——————-गितांग:चन्द्र सिंह राही———————-
हेलो मेरे यार हौ ड़ू यू ड़ू
आई लव यू त्वे मेरो ज्यू
जन दाळ भात मा घ्यू
हैरी भुज्जी को ठुंगार
हेलो मेरे यार हौ ड़ू यू ड़ू
मुखडी में बहार है
जिकुड़ी मा उलार है
उत्तराखंड की छोरी है
जन आग की चिंगारी है
अंग्रेजी बुखार है
हिंदी का गुलदार है
हेलो मेरे यार हौ ड़ू यू ड़ू
आंखी बि मिलाती है
नखरा भी दिखाती है
बेकसूर छोरों थैं
च्त्गा भी लगवाती है
भारी च मक्कार
हेलो मेरे यार हौ ड़ू यू ड़ू
पाड़ी नहे बीन्गती है
फ़िल्मी गीत गाती है
हेलो हाय हाय कैकी
दगड़ीयों थैं भटयाती है
जिकुड़ी धोखा दार
हेलो मेरे यार हौ ड़ू यू ड़ू
चार इंची की कुर्ती पैरी
शरम ल्याज गोळ है
जीन्स द्याखा इन्नी कसी
जन तकिया परे खोळ है
दाना सयाणा छन लाचार
हेलो मेरे यार हौ ड़ू यू ड़ू
Chandra Singh Rahi does not hesitate in criticzing wrong happenings in the society as the following poem shows his concern-
बिन दारु बामण पूजा नि करदो

भितर नीच अन्न की दाणी
बुरो बिसन ह्वेगे शराब को पाणी
देवतौं की भूमि छौ यु उत्तराखंड
शराब कर गए यख खंड मंड
दारु पेकी ह्वेगे उत्तराखंड
आपस मा फ्वड़दन बरमंड
मनख्यात थैं या रागस बणाणी
बुरो बिसन ह्वेगे शराब को पाणी
गंदी गंदी गाळी बकण लग्यां छीं
रौल्यूं रौल्यूं उतौणा प्वडाँ छीं
झुल्ला चिर्यां छीं बरमंड फुट्यां छीं
कुकुर बी तौं देखि भुकण लग्यां छीं
इंसानियत की कदर नि जाणी
बुरो बिसन ह्वेगे शराब को पाणी
बिन दारु बामण पूजा नि करदो
दारु की झांज मा श्लोक च बुल्दो
बिन घूँट जगरी से डौंरी नि बजदी
बिन दारु क्वी बि पूजा नि हूंदी
धर्म कर्म की जड़ उगटणी
बुरो बिसन ह्वेगे शराब को पाणी
रीति रिवाज ह्वेगीं खराब
मुर्दा फुकणकु बी चैंद शराब
मनिख जोनी की कदर नि जाणी
बुरो बिसन ह्वेगे शराब को पाणी
पर्चण्ड बणगे बोतल राणी
बुरो बिसन ह्वेगे शराब को पाणी
(गीत गंगा से साभार )
