śyāma tori murali nek bajāuń
johi johi tān bharo murali, sohi sohi gāna sunāwuń
hamāri bindiyā tumko lagāwuń, maiń sīra mukuṭa lagāwuń
hamārī cunariyā tumhi pahano śyāma, maiń pitāmbara odhuń
hamārī kańganiyā tum pahano śyāma, maiń tumhāri saba pāuń
sūra śyāma tum bano rādhikā maiń nanda lāla kahalāuń
(Refrain) Oh Syama! I shall play Your flute. As you filled the flute with the melodic phrases (tanas in Indian music), I shall play songs on it.
1) I will put my bindi (an auspicious marking for a girl on her forehead) and put it on Your forehead. I will wear Your auspicious peacock-feathered crown on my head. Please wear my chunari (girl's clothing), Oh Syama. I shall wear Your pitambara (Lord Krsna's yellow pant-like cloth).
2) Please wear my kangan (bracelets), as I will attain Your possessions. Suradas's Syama, you become Radhika! I shall be called Nanda Lala (darling of Nanda Maharaja).
This song is rendered in Raga Sivaranjani.
