Tang Aa Chuke Hain (Hindi: तंग आ चुके हैं, Urdu: تنگ آ چُکْے ہیں) "I am Wearied" is a song from the 1957 Bollywood movie "Pyaasa".

The movie was produced, and directed by Guru Dutt, who also plays the main character, Vijay, a struggling poet.

In the movie, the song is performed a capella when Vijay, facing an audience that includes his former girlfriend, Meena (Mala Sinha ), claims to be defeated and totally disenchanted of the world.

The playback singer was Mohammed Rafi.

The lyricist for all songs in the movie, including this one, was the Urdu poet Sahir Ludhianvi, and the composer was S.D. Burman.

Later, the singer Asha Bhosle also interpreted a female version of this song, for the 1958 Bollywood movie "Light House".
