Bengali lyric

        পুরানো সেই দিনের কথা ভুলবি কি রে হায় ।
ও সেই চোখে দেখা, প্রাণের কথা, সে কি ভোলা যায় ।
আয়    আর একটিবার আয় রে সখা, প্রাণের মাঝে আয় ।
মোরা   সুখের দুখের কথা কব, প্রাণ জুড়াবে তায় ।
মোরা   ভোরের বেলা ফুল তুলেছি, দুলেছি দোলায়—
        বাজিয়ে বাঁশি গান গেয়েছি বকুলের তলায় । 
হায়     মাঝে হল ছাড়াছাড়ি, গেলেম কে কোথায়—
আবার  দেখা যদি হল, সখা, প্রাণের মাঝে আয় ॥

English lyric of the song

Purano sei diner katha bhulbi kire haay |
O seichhokher dekha, praner katha, se ki bhola jaay |
 Aayaar-ektibar aayre sakha, praner majhe aay |
Morasukher dukher katha kabo, pran jurabe haay |
Mora bhorer bela phul tulechhi, dulechhi dolaay –
Bajiye bansi gan geyechhi bakuler talaay|
Haaymajhe holo chharachhari, gelem ke kothaay –
Abar dekha jodi holo tabe praner majhe aay ||

English translation of the song

How can you forgo events of the good old days, dear.
The glimpse of each other, spirited chatting, are unforgettable.
Come once more, my friend, come into my heart.
We’ll talk about the joy and sorrows to soothe heart.
We’ve collected flowers at dawn, played and swung a lot –
Sang and fluted under the BAKUL tree.
Then happened the separation, alas, we got diverged –
When we’ve got a chance to unite once more, come into my heart.
- Translated by Anjan Ganguly

Golden those days gone for ever, gone for ever, dear Glancing eyes whispering hearts they can be ever
forgotten O come for once, come o dear, come into my heart, together We'll share, pains'n pleasures
to heal the laden heart.
In the early hours, plucked we flowers, swung in great joy Playing on flute, beneath  Bakul,
sang  we together.
O separation, in between, not known where had we been O got you once more, o dear,
come into the heart of hearts.
- Translated by Subhasis Bandyopadhyay

Hindi translation of the song

बीते बीताए दिनों की बात भूलुँ कैसे हाय
वो तो देख दिखाई
मन की बातें भूलाई न जाएं 
आओ बस एक बार आओ साथी प्राण में समाओ
हम सुख दुख की
बातें करें हल्का हो ये मन ।
हम भोर भोर जो फुल चुने थे झुला थे झुले
बजा बंसी गीत गाए थे बकुल के तले
अचानक हम बिछड़ गए, गए कोई कहीं
फिर ये मिलन जो अब हो  गया साथी प्राण में समाओ ॥
- Translated by Jalaj Bhaduri
