hari hari kāhe śikhala parakāra
guru-jane bāñci micha-i bacanāmṛta
dinahi karala abhisāra
sabahu badhū-jana calu bṛndābana
gaurī ārādhana lāgi
aichana mugadha bacana racana kari
guru-jana anumati māgi
beśa banā-ota nanadī śunāyata
catura sakhī sañe bāta
gaurī ārādhimanoratha pūraba
paśupati nandana sātha
su-basita kusuma kapūrita tāmbula
bhari le-i candana kaṭora
yāḿhā nāhi kaṇṭaka ācora
(Refrain) Ah! Ah! What did they say? Cheasting their elders with a host of nectar lies, they went to meet Krsna in broad daylight.
1) All the teenage gopis went to Vrndavana forest to worship Goddess Durga. Speaking sweet words, they asked their elders' permission.
2) They dressed in nice garments, talked with their sisters-in-law, and spoke clever words with their gopi-friends. They declared all their desires would be fulfilled by worshiping Durga and Ganesa.
3) They brought with them fragrances, flowers, camphor, betel nuts, and cups of sandal paste. Govinda dasa took care no brambles blocked their path.
This song was sung in Raga Tilak Kamod.
