Bengali lyric

          কে দিল আবার আঘাত আমার দুয়ারে।
এ নিশীথকালে কে আসি দাঁড়ালে, খুঁজিতে আসিলে কাহারে॥
     বহুকাল হল বসন্তদিন    এসেছিল এক অতিথি নবীন,
          আকুল জীবন করিল মগন    অকূল পুলকপাথারে॥
আজি এ বরষা নিবিড়তিমির,    ঝরোঝরো জল, জীর্ণ কুটীর--
          বাদলের বায়ে প্রদীপ নিবায়ে    জেগে বসে আছি একা রে।
অতিথি অজানা, তব গীতসুর    লাগিতেছে কানে ভীষণমধুর--
          ভাবিতেছি মনে যাব তব সনে    অচেনা অসীম আঁধারে॥

English lyric of the song

Ke dilo aabar aaghat aamar duyare
Ai nishit kale ke asi darale khujite asile kahare
Bahukal holo basanto din asechilo ak atithi nabin
Akul jiban karilo magan akul pulak pathare
Aaji a barosha nibir timir jhoro jhoro jal jirno kutir
Badaler baye pradip nibaiye jage base aschi akare
Atithi ajana tabo gito sur lagiteche kane bhisan madhur
Bhabitechi mane jabo tabo sane achene asim adhare

English translation of the song

Who is at my door once again,
Knocking, in this night,
Looking for someone, perhaps.
Long back in the spring -
Appeared a guest, juvenile,
Inexplicable bliss it had been
My tormented life saturated with.
In my worn out cottage in the dark,
Wailing wind blew off my lamp,
And it rains incessantly -
Keeping me awake all alone.
You seem to be stranger,
Your music dulcet, though,
Feels like following you -
To the unknown alien world.
- Translated by Anjan Ganguly

Who is that again knocking at my door.
At this hour of night, who has come to look for whom.
It has been long, in spring time, that a new guest had arrived.
The eager life had indulged in endless and enormous thrills. 
Now it is monsoon, darkness is intimate, rain incessant, worn out hut
Blowing off my lamp, in wailing wind, I am awake, alone 
Oh my guest unknown, your notes seems tremendously dear in my ears
Thinking that I should go with you in that unknown, eternal darkness (space). 
- Translated by Sumita Chakraborty
