I'm talking about an Indian old Hindi song "Jane Kaha Gaye Wo Din" sung by my favorite singer Mukesh Chand Mathur (1923-1976). Some information is as follows:

Film: Mera Naam Joker (1970)
Music Director: Shankar Jaikishan
Lyricist: Hasrat Jaipuri

Actually only these two stanzas are heard in the song:

1. mere kadam jaha pade, sajde kiye the yaar ne
mere kadam jaha pade, sajde kiye the yaar ne
mujhko rula rula diya, jati hui bahar ne
jane kaha gaye wo din...

2. apani nazar me aaj kal, din bhi andheri raat hai
apani nazar me aaj kal, din bhi andheri raat hai
saya hi apne sath tha, saya hi apne sath hai
jane kaha gaye vo din....

I first heard the third stanza in this linked version of Mukesh's live concert in 1976, USA:

3. is dil ke aasiyan me, unke khayal reh gaye
is dil ke aasiyan me, unke khayal reh gaye
tod ke wo dil chal diye, hum phir akele rahe gaye
jane kaha gaye vo din...

Another two stanzas I've recently heard are in this video of a stage show by Dr. Kamlesh Avasthi, which are as follows:

4. andhiya gam ki yu chali. sapne mere bikhar gaye
andhiya gam ki yu chali. sapne mere bikhar gaye
aasu bhi mere puchhne lage, sathi tere kidhar gaye
jane kaha gaye vo din...

5. hamne to apna jan kar, unko gale lagaya tha
hamne to apna jan kar, unko gale lagaya tha
patthar ko hamne poojkar, unko khuda banayatha
jane kaha gaye vo din...

Now, the motive of posting this question is Kamlesh Avasthi mentioned (in that show) that there are 13 stanzas written for this song. So, I'm looking for all the 13 stanzas of this song. I mean 7 stanzas in addition to 5 I've quoted above.

Note: Since this is my first question to this community, I don't know which type of question and tags are welcomed here and btw, let me mention that the language of all the lines quoted above is Hindi.
