Bala ná go bala ná;
Ke dila mane duhkha ke hala vimukh,
Tár práňe já saila ná.
Varaśá ekhan geche dúre
Bharasá áj sharat shishire;
Akále e ván káhár tare,
Ke se iipsita ela ná.
Kathá diye je náhi áse,
Vyatha diye je kśamá ná jáce;
Duhkhe sukhe ná kánde hase
Táre bandhu meno ná.
those eyes lined with dark collyrium?
Tell me, please tell me.
Who has caused pain to her mind?
Who has turned away from her,
Which she could not bear?
The rains have now gone far away,
Now we are hoping for the autumn dews,
For whom is this untimely deluge?
Who is the most desired who did not come?
One who promises but fails to keep,
One who gives pain but does not apologize,
One who does not smile in happiness and weep in sorrow –
Accept him not as a friend.
