Transliteration in English

Kalee kalee balo re aaj-
Balo ho, ho ho, balo ho, ho ho, balo ho.
Namer jore sadhibo kaaj-
Balo ho ho ho, balo ho, balo ho.
Oi ghor matto kare nritya ranga-majhare
Oi lakhsa lakhsa jakhkha rakhkha gheri shyamare,
Oi latto-patto-kesh atto atto hase re-
Haha hahaha hahaha.
Aare balre shyama maayer jai, jai jai.
Jai jai, jai jai, jai jai, jai jai.
Aare bal re shyama mayer jai, jai jai.
Aare bal re shyama mayer jai.
