(refrain)

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

 

(2)

hamārī kańganiyā tum pahano śyāma, maiń tumhāri saba pāuń

sūra śyāma tum bano rādhikā maiń nanda lāla kahalāuń

 

TRANSLATION

(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).
