LYRICS:

(refrain)

ūdhau begihī braja jāhu

 

(1)

surati sandesa sunāya meṭo ballabhina kau dāhu

kāma pāvaka tūlamaya tana biraha svāsa samīra

 

(2)

bhasama nāhina hota pāvata locanana ke nīra

ite para bina samādhāne kyoń dharain tiya dhīra

 

(3)

kahauń kahā banāya tumasoń sakhā sādhu paravīna

sūra sumati bicāriye kyoń jiyai jala bina mīna

 

TRANSLATION

Refrain: Uddhava, go quickly to Braja!

 

1) Give my dear ones the message of my loving memory, and end their burning pain. Their bodies are a lamp-wick lit with passion’s fire, their lovelorn sighs inflame it like a wind.

 

2) Only the tears that fall from their eyes save them from burning to ashes. When they have no remedy for their state, how can these women be steadfast?

 

3) I do not need to explain anything to you, my wise and good friend. Sura Dasa says, “Think well on this. Can a fish live without water?”
