Bhara baadara, maaha bhaadara

Transliteration in English

Ke elo aaji e ghor nisheethe,
Saadher kaanane shaanti naashite.
Matto karee jato padma-ban dale
Bimalo sarobaro monthiya,
Ghumanta bihage keno badhe re
Saghane kharo sharo sondhiya!
Tarase chamokiye harin harinee
Skhalita charane chutichhe!
Skhalitacharane chutichhe kaanane,
Karuno-nayane chaahiche.
Aakul sarasee,saras sarasee
Sharbane pashi kandiche.
Timir dig bhari ghor jaminee,
Bipad-ghano chaya chaiya.
Kee jani kee habe aaji e nisheethe,
Tarase pran othe kanpiya.
