Transliteration in English

Ohe jibonballabh, ohe sadhandurlabh,
Aami marmer katha antarbyatha kichui nahi kabo –
Sudhu jibon mon charone dinu bujhiya laho sab |
(Dinu charanatale – kotha ja chhilo dinu charanatale –
Praner bojha bujhe lao, dinu charanatale |)
Aami ki aar kabo  |
Ei sansarpathosankot oti kantakamoy hey,
Aami nirabe jaabo hridoye loye premmuroti tabo 
( Nirobe jaabo – pother knaata maanbo na, Nirobe jaabo |
  Hridoybyathay knaadbo na, Nirobe jaabo | )
 Aami ki aar kabo  |
Sukh dukh sab tuchcho korinu priyo-apriyo hey  
Tumi nijo haate jaaha sapibe taha maathay tuliya labo 
(Aami maathay labo – jaaha dibe taai maathay labo –
Sukh dukh tabo padadhuli bole maathay labo |) 
 Aami ki aar kabo  |
Aporadh jodi kore thaki pode,  naai karo jodi khama,
Tabe pranpriyo, diyo hey diyo bedona nabo nabo |
(Diyo bedona – Jodi bhalo bojho diyo bedona –
 Bichare Jodi doshi hoi diyo bedona |)
 Aami ki aar kabo  |
Tabu phelo na dure, dibasasheshe deke niyo charone – 
Tumi chhara aar ki achhe aamar mritu aandhar bhabo | 
( Niyo charane – bhober khela saara hole niyo charane –
  Din phuraile dinonath, niyo charane |)
 Aami ki aar kabo  |
