(1)
dhala dhala kanca angera labani
abani bahiya yaya
isat hasirataranga-hillole
madana muracha paya
 
(2)
kiba se nagaraki khene dekhinu
dhairaya rahala dure
nirabadhi mora cita beyakula
kena ba sada-i jhure
 
(3)
hasiya hasityaanga dola-iya
naciya naciya yaya
nayana katakse bisama bisikhe
parana bindhita dhaya
 
(4)
malati phuleramalati gale
hiyara majhare dole
udiya padiyamatala bhramara
ghuriya ghuriya bule
 
(5)
kapale candanaphotara chata
lagila hiyara majhe
na jani ki byadhimarame badhala
na kahi lokera laje
 
(6)
emana kathinanarira parana
bahira nahika haya
na jani ki jani haye parimana
dasa gobinde kaya
 
(1) His glorious youthful handsomeness was beyond anything in this world. The splashing waves of his gentle smile would make even Kamadeva faint in bliss.
 
(2) Who was that handsome boy? What happened to me when I saw Him? My peaceful composure fled far away. Now my heart is always agitated. Why do I always weep?
 
(3) Smiling and smiling, and His limbs swaying to and fro, He danced and danced as He walked. From the corner of His eye He shot a fearsome sharp arrow, an arrow that pierced my life's breath.
 
(4) Hanging from His neck, a jasmine garland swayed to and fro on His chest. Rising and falling, intoxicated black bees flew around and around its flowers.
 
(5) Sandal-paste tilaka glistened on His forehead and chest. Why am I now so agitated? I do not know. My heart is wounded. Afraid of the people's gossip, I do not tell anyone.
 
(6) The women and girls all have hard hearts. That is why I do not even go outside. Govinda dasa says: Who knows why this girl has become so changed? I do not know.
