There are plenty. Let me tell you one - Neeraj.
Listen to the lyrics closely in the following songs:-
1. Dil aaj shayar hai - "Gambler" - a very sentimental sad number where he beautifully associates his failed romance with gambling and life in general.
2. Phoolon ke rang se - "Prem Pujari" - Here this is a very happy romantic number but set in a very beautiful and emotional way where the hero Dev Anand expresses his feelings for his beloved and how it is associated with badal, bijli, chandan pani,..... and so on. And the lyricist also says that to experince this blissful, enjoyable love one has to take several janams so that it can be experinced beyond one lifetime.

In my view Shailendra was the best and Sahir Ludhianvi was also very good.

There are many such as Shailendra, Sahir Ludhyanvi, Hasrat, Pradeep, Bharat vyas etc. Bharat Vyas songs are very great, Jara Samnetho avao chaliye " by Lata and Rafi is great one. hence these are some great lyrics.
