Sing a song of Taj Mahal

Sing a song of Tajmahal    
a fine nazm or a ghazal  
Of this landmark for lovers †  
Ah, a lover's edifice †  
Complete with medieval bowers †  
It's a Mecca for tourists! †  
Tis sensational, tis exceptional †  
tis truly a touristy place. †  
Watch the shimmer of its magnificent marbled dome †  
Moonlight or sunlight, it glimmers of imperial chrome †  
It's ironical then †  
that though Indian-Arabian I am †  
I haven't yet been to this touristy place †  
It is truly as they must say, a lover's shrine †  
a place where hearts duly incline †  
They find it steamy †  
I find it dreamy †  
Oh, I've got to see for myself this touristy place. †  
Each of the marbled minarets †  
conceal such romantic secrets †  
for lovers to silently explore †  
to admire and to adore †  
A place human lovebirds couldn't ignore. †  
Ah you've got to visit this touristy place! †  
Two famed lovers lie in the legendary vault below †  
and the stream too it has a romantic flow †  
It's a lovers haven and paradise on earth †  
Even dead passions there undergo a rebirth †  
Ah, rekindle my love for you in this touristy place! †  
Extol I may this awesome imposing edifice †  
A greed for pure love is perhaps better than avarice †  
LŲng live the legend of Shah jahan and Mumtaz mahal †  
Long live love and love like a Moghul †  
so forever we have this monumental grace! †  
Yeah take me my luv to this touristy place! †
