sundarī aparūpa dekhala āja
hari abhisāra bharama bhare sundarī
bichurala sāja bisāja
maṇi mañjīra yatane āni dhanī
so pahiranu du-i hāta
kińkiṇī gīma hāra bali pahirala
hāra sājā-ola mātha
garajata barikhata meha
biṣadhara bharala dūrata patha pā
ekāli calali teji geha
cāḍhala manorathe dosara manamathe
patha bipatha nāhi māna
gobinda-dāsa kaha-i braja-nāgarī
aichana bheṭali kāna
(Refrain) The beautiful gopi looked at the wonderful arrangement. Yearning to meet Krsna, she took no care that the ornaments were proper or not.
1) With both hands she carefully placed jewel anklets on her feet. She placed a necklace on her neck and an ornament on her head.
2) The night was dark like black kajjala. The clouds thundered and rained. Snakes slithered on the path. Leaving her home, she walked all alone.
She was filled with longing.
This song is in Raga Kedar.
