Lyrics from his Favorite Bhajan

मेरा रंग दो राम रंग चोला,

हो,मेरा रंग दो राम रंग चोला,

मेरा रंग दो राम रंग चोला,

हो,मेरा रंग दो राम रंग चोला,

ध्रुव भगत ने रंग रंगाया,

जंगल में जा डेरा जमाया,

ध्रुव भगत ने रंग रंगाया,

जंगल में जा डेरा जमाया,

उत रामा ही रामा बोल्या,

मेरा रंग दो राम रंग चोला,

हो,मेरा रंग दो राम रंग चोला,
