Transliteration in English

Chol chol bhai,
Twora kore mora age jaaye|
Praan pon khonj e bon, se bon !
Chol mora kojon o dike jayi |
Na na bhai, kaaj nai -
Hetha kichu nai - kichu nai - 
Oi jhape jodi kichu pai |
Bora ! Bora !
Aaro, daara, daara,
Ato byasto holo phoskabe shikar|
Chupi chupi aay, chupi chupi aay
Oi ashothotolay |
Ebar thikthak hoye sobe thaak -
Sabdhaan, dhoro baan - 
Sabdhaan, charo baan |
Gelo gelo, oi oi palay palay |
Chol chol - 
Chhot re peeche, aay re twora jayi ||
