TRANSLATION

(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.

 

REMARKS/EXTRA INFORMATION:

This song was sung in Raga Tilak Kamod.
