LYRICS:

(Refrain)

śuna bṛṣabhānu-nandinī rā-i

abalā-maṇḍale kirīti rākhali

bhāla mati se bithā-i

nanda-nandana rāja-bhūṣaṇa

nayana sukha-maya śeja

ki khane tuyā sane leha karala he

se saba dūrahi teja

ye tuhu tākara birasa ānata

dharaṇī likhi lihki roya

ye jana duhu-jana bedana nāhi jāne

tākara antara jāna

rāya rāmacandra bacana mānaha

dāsa gobinda bhāṇa

 

TRANSLATION

(Refrain) O Radha, O daughter of Vrsabhanu, please listen. In the circle of young girls Your reputation was good in the past. But today that good reputation is in disarray.

 

1) Nanda's son is a regal jewel. Delight resides in His eyes. He loves You. Why do You flee so far from Him?

 

2) You have made Him very unhappy. If He sees You He is overcome. O cruel girl, why did You speak such words to Him, cruel words, words like a lance pushed into His heart?

 

3) For Your sake Your lover is now anointed with dust. Now He cannot attain You. In His left hand He rests His head. Aimlessly scratching some letters in the ground, He weeps.

 

4) No one knows what You two feel. Only You know what is truly in His heart. Please reflect on Ramacandra Raya's words. This Govinda dasa says.
