Khanchar pakhi chhilo sonar khanchatite, boner pakhi chhilo bone  
Ekada kee koriya milan holo dohe, kee chhilo bidhatar mone  
Boner pakhi bale,  khanchar pakhi bhai , bonete jai dohe mile   
Khanchar pakhi bale ,  boner pakhi aay,khanchaay thaki niribile
Boner pakhi bale,  Na, ami shikale dhara nahi diba   
Khanchar pakhi bale,  Haay , ami kemone bone bahiribo   

Boner pakhi gahe bahire bosi bosi  boner gaan chhilo jato,
Khanchar pakhi gahe shikahano buli tar   dohar bhasa duimoto  
Boner pakhi bale  Khanchar pakhi bhai,boner gan gao dekhi   
Khanchar pakhi bale, boner pakhi bhai, khanchar gan laho shikhi   
Boner pakhi bale,  na ami shikhano gan nahi chai   
Khanchar pakhi bale,  Haay ami  kemone banagan gai   

Boner pakhi bale,  Akash ghana neel kothao badha nahi tar   
Khanchar pakhi bale,  Khanchati paripati kemon dhaka charidhar   
Boner pakhi bale,  Apna chhari dao  megher majhe ekebare   
Khanchar pakhi bale,  Nirala kone bose bandhiya rakho apanare   
Boner pakhi bale  Na setha kothaay uribare pai ! 
Khanchar pakhi bale,   Haay meghe kothaay bosibar thanai   

Emni dui pakhi dohare bhalobase, tobuo kachhe nahi paay  
Khanchar phanke phanke parashe mukhe mukhe, neerabe chokhe chokhe chaay  
Dujone keha kare bujhite nahi pare ,   bujhate nare apanaay  
Dujone eka eka jhapati more pakha   katore kahe,  kachhe aay ! 
Boner pakhi bale,  na kabe khanchaay rudhi dibe dwar ! 
Khanchar pakhi bale,  Haay mor sakati nahi uribar !
