Notes: Once Rabindranath himself had commented, as referred to in the 'Rabindra Sangeet Bichitra' written by Shantidev Ghosh, on this song –

… I used to express the emotions of my heart in my early ages which at a later stage I think I could get rid of. Songs written after maturity are not for soulful expressions but for embellishment. Contemporary poetic compositions too are meant to deliver expatiatory objects only. In this song 'Keno Baajao Kaakon Kanakano…' an expansive idea of imagination is expressed. …

Importance of his commentary is paramount for a chronological study of his songs.

Keno baajao knaakon kankan kato chholbhore
Ogo ghorey phirey chalo kanakokalose jol bhore
Keno jole dheu tuli chholki chhalki karo khela
Keno chaho khane khane chokito nayane kar tore kato chholbhorey
Hero jomuna belay alose helai gelo bela
Jato hasibhora dheu korey kanakani kalosware kato chholbhorey
Hero nodiparoparey gaganokinarey meghomala
