LYRICS:

(Refrain)

rā-i he aba tejaha māna

caraṇe lāgi tohe sādhaye kāna

 

(1)

badana na kara malina chānda

bāde ki ā-oye pūṇimaka cānda

 

(2)

adhara bāndhuli madhura hāsa

nīrasa kara dīragha niśāsa

cańcala nayana khańjana jora

bhāńga-bhujańgama rāhu āgora

gobinda-dāsa cite e-i āśa

tejana baraye māna abhilāṣa

 

TRANSLATION

(Refrain) O Radha, give up Your jealous anger. Walking with Your feet, go to meet Krsna.

 

1) Don't make Your face so dark. Make it like a glistening full-moon.

 

2) Don't give out these long despairing sighs. Place a sweet smile on Your bandhuli-flower lips.

 

3) Your restless eyes are like khanjana birds. Now You are in a snake's grip.

 

4) What sweet fruit will Your jealous anger bring to You? The whole world knows that Your servant has His faults.

 

5) He cannot live without the nectar of Your words. Why do You show this thunderbolt of Your jealous anger?

 

6) In Govinda dasa's heart this desire resides: Give up this jealous anger.
