Notes: While writing and composing the tune of this song for the group of Banadebis in Kaal-Mrigaya the poet had had a Pada of Vidyapati at the back of his mind.

Bhara baadara, maaha bhaadara

This shows how much the poet was influenced by Vidyapati. He had used a couple of phrases from the said Pada in his song, unaltered.

Saghane khara shara sandiya and Timira dig bhari ghor jaamini

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.
