LYRICS:

(1)

kabewhen?; gaura-vane–in the forest of Lord Gaurāńga (Navadvīpa); suradhunī-taṭe–on the banks of the celestial Ganges; ‘ha rādhe ha kṛṣṇa' bole' –chanting, “O Rādhā! O Kṛṣṇa!”; kāndiyā–while weeping; berā'bo– I will wander; deho-sukha chāḍi' –forgetting all physical comforts; nānā latā-taru–of various creepers and trees; tale–under the shade.

śva-paca-gṛhete–at the homes of the dog-eaters; māgiyā–by begging; khāibo–I will take my meals; pibo–I will drink; sarasvatī-jala–the water of the Sarasvatī river; puline puline–along both the banks of the river; gaḍā-gaḍi dibo–I will roll on the ground; kori' kṛṣṇa-kolāhala–raising an uproar of “Kṛṣṇa! Kṛṣṇa!”

dhāma-bāsī jane–to the inhabitants of the holy land; praṇati koriyā– bowing down; māgibo–I will beg; kṛpāra leśa–a bit of their mercy; vaiṣṇava-caraṇa-renu–the dust of the Vaiṣṇavas' feet; gāya mākhi' – smearing on my body; dhori' –I will wear; avadhūta-veśa–the dress of a mendicant.

 

(4)

gauḍa-braja-jane–the inhabitants of Navadvīpa and those of Vrajabhūmi; bheda dekhibo–I will see no difference; hoibo–I will be transformed; baraja-bāsī–into a resident of Vraja; dhāmera svarūpa–the true nature of the Lord's abode; sphuribe nayane–will manifest itself to my eyes; hoibo–and I will become; rādhāra dāsī–a maidservant of Srīmatī Rādhārāṇī
