Transliteration in English

Kothay aalo, kothay ore aalo !
Birohanole jaalo rey taare jaalo.   
Royechhe deep, naa aachhe shikhaa, ei kee bhaalo  chhilo rey likhaa 
Eihar cheye maron se je bhaalo.  
Birohaanole pradeepkhani jaalo.   

Bedonaadutee gaahichhe, 'ore praan,
Tomaar laagi jaagen bhogobaan.  
Nishithe ghono aundhokaare  daaken tore premabhisare,
Dukhyo diye raakhen tor maan.  
Tomaar laagi jaagen bhogobaan.'   

Gagantal giyechee meghe bhari,
Baadaljal parichhe jhari jhari  
E ghor raate kisher laagi  paraan momo sahasaa jagi
Emon keno korichhe mori mori.  
Baadol jal parichhe jhari jhari.   

Bijuli shudhu kshanik aabha haane,
Nibirtaro timir chokhe aane.  
Jani naa kotha aunek dure  baajilo gaan gobheer sure,
Sakal praan taanichhe path paane.
Nibirtaro timir chokhe aane.  
Kothay aalo, kothay ore aalo !
Birohaanole jolo re taare jaalo.  
Dakichhe meghe, haakichhe haawa, 
Samoy gele hobe naa jaoya- 
Nibir nishaa nikoshghonokaalo.  
Poraan diye premer deep jaalo.
